The Renovation Diaries are a new collaboration with our community in which we feature your step by step renovation progress and provide monetary support towards getting it done in style.
As part of our new Renovation Diary program, we're taking you into kitchens and bathrooms all over the country to meet the homeowners and be a part of the process as these rooms are transformed week by week. In this post, we're introducing you to Seth and Allison, who are in the process of remodeling their kitchen, as well as making significant changes to the layout of their home that will make the kitchen and adjoining family room a lot more useful.
When we purchased this house, we knew that it would require a lot of work. The half-century-old layout is chopped up into many separate rooms, which contrasts with our style and also accounts for a lot of awkward and wasted space. The goal of the renovation is to make better use of space through an open floor plan.
