Kitchen Before & After: A 1970s Kitchen Gets aJaw Dropping Overhaul
When we saw photos of Kitchn reader Sarah Galender Meyer’s Bay Area kitchen renovation, we were stunned! This small, dark 1970s kitchen (“horrid,” as Sarah said) underwent a complete gut remodel, which included knocking down a wall between the kitchen and dining room and adding French doors to bring in more light. See what the kitchen looks like now:
We love it! So pretty. Here’s what Sarah says about the renovation:
We did a gut remodel of a horrid 70′s small and dark kitchen in our 1906 house. We knocked down the wall between the kitchen and dining room. All new everything including enlarging the windows and adding french doors to the dining room to bring more light in. We also gutted the attached pantry that served many purposes – back door entry, bathroom, laundry room, and pantry storage.We did a significant amount of structural work to remove the wall between the dining room and kitchen, which involved an engineer, and we gutted the attached pantry that included a small bathroom.Materials:Cabinets – Executive Cabinetry (semi-custom)Countertop – Cambria (white), and Walnut for the peninsulaBacksplash Tile – Clayhaus for modwalls 2″x 8″ Subway Tile in SplashAppliances – KitchenaidPendants – Schoolhouse ElectricSink – Kohler
Faucet – Hansgrohe
I really love everything about the new kitchen. The tile, the wood countertop, the sink, the faucet, and the built-ins might be my favorites, though. Also, I love the French doors that went in on the dining room side. It really opened up the space and let in so much more light.
Thanks so much for sharing, Sarah!
