Amy Havins shares before and after photos of their kitchen.I am sooooo excited to FINALLY be sharing images from our kitchen renovation. Our home was built in 1941 and has been remodeled quite a bit since then but the last time the kitchen was redone was 2008 (can you tell by all the beige?). Even though the kitchen was not unlivable, the color scheme didn’t really go with our style and we felt like the wall that separated the kitchen made our galley kitchen much smaller. We wanted to give the kitchen a fresh look and I cannot tell you how happy I am with the way it turned out.

I have always wanted a blue and white kitchen and we thought what better time to have one than now. Plus, the color scheme really goes with the rest of our house. From new uppers and lowers, knocking out a wall, getting new appliances (we did keep the existing range) and the marble countertops; as much work as this project was, it really was majority cosmetic because we didn’t really ‘move’ anything around.

From demo day to the last day the contractors walked out the door the project took 8 weeks (they prepped everything prior to demoing the space). This was one of the easiest and most stress free projects ever because of our DREAM contractors (feel free to e-mail me for their information). We have been loving our kitchen so much and it is so nice to have the extra space and storage (especially with having the new baby).

    I love it! So much more interest with the blue cabinets. Blue is my favorite color to decorate with and how can you not love blue with white 🙂

    Beautiful kitchen! I would like to know the name of the company that can turn out that quality of work in 8 weeks! It looked like they were careful and left your property nice and clean at the end of each day! I would love to visit with them about a project in our back house. Was an architect required ? If so I would love to to talk to him too! On another note, your sweet baby is adorable! It just doesn’t get any better than this!! Congratulations on all of your exciting changes !! Thank you for sharing all of these happy things!

    This is absolutely stunning. In the era of the gray and white kitchen, I love that you went for something so fresh and bold, yet so perfectly classic. Our house was also originally built in 1941 (we’re in Birmingham, a suburb of Detroit), so I very much appreciate your commitment to maintaining the integrity of the home’s original aesthetic. Thank you for sharing – cheers to good eats and even better memories shared in the heart of your home.
