This cottage kitchen had a lot to overcome: a less-than-functional layout, old cabinets, dated floors, and popcorn ceilings. Sarah from The Estate of Things gave it a whole new look (and usefulness, too):

From Sarah:

This North Carolina cottage kitchen needed a lot of help! Popcorn ceilings, wooden cabinets from the 50s and a refrigerator hanging out all by itself on the middle of a long wall were just the start of the problems. The remodel sought to eliminate a “college dude” look, trading up beer signs and parquet flooring for a more sophisticated aesthetic that features classic architectural choices, timeless tile and countertop finishes and layers of modern on-trend accessories.

As is customary for this historic renovation and interior design blog, readers of The Estate of Things joined along in the design process throughout. The designer gathered input on a banquette build, readers weighed in on lighting choices, paint colors and appliances.

Thank you Sarah!
