Graeme and Rebekah crossed the finish line! Join them as they excitedly take you on a tour through their finished kitchen in all it's completed glory.
The big project is done! Tell us a little bit about your new space. Have you used it yet? How satisfied are you with the outcome?
We are finally done and could not be more excited about the space! Cooking has been a game changer. With all of the extra counter space we really love cooking big meals and actually enjoying the time spent in there instead of rushing to get out of a cramped and stressful space. Sometimes I just sit in there and revel in its beauty, because I just can't believe it is done and ours!
What is your favorite element of the new room?
The dishwasher has been amazing to have (how did we go so long without one?) We just found out we're pregnant too so I am beyond thrilled to have the extra help of that washer come winter (and baby)! Also, the gas range was so worth it. Cooking with it is amazing!
However, can the WHOLE room be my favorite element? I just love the extra cabinetry (and the two tone finish, which just turned out delicious) and the counter space is beyond what I expected. Also, the counters themselves are gorgeous. We are just so excited to entertain and cook and grow our tiny tribe in this wonderful new space!
