Hold onto your hat and prepare yourself for a litany of OMG's because the "after" photo of this kitchen is going to absolutely wow you!
This bigger, brighter, and more beautiful kitchen is the outcome of the hard work of Beth and her husband, Lee, over at Beach Cottage in the Desert. Removing the half wall from the kitchen went a long way in opening it up and lending some modernity to the room. The couple didn't stop there, however. Beth and Lee built a fridge surround, added some additional cabinets, installed crown molding over the new and existing cabinetry, and installed a new counter top. Lee also built in a new pantry beside the refrigerator. While the old kitchen felt dated and closed off from the rest of the space, this new open kitchen feels modern and airy. Plus, the new bar seating area is far more practical than the little half wall that previously existed in the space.
Check out the full details of Beth and Lee's renovation on their blog: Beach Cottage in the Desert: Kitchen Update. And, to be really wowed, check out the beams they added to their lofted ceilings after they finished their kitchen project! OMG indeed!
