2022-23 Kitchen Remodel

Submitted by John Bowen on Sat, 12/31/2022 - 10:34

We worked through most of 2021 and all of 2022 to remodel the kitchen in our home. We knew when we first toured the house that a major kitchen re-do would happen fairly soon.

The kitchen was original to the house, from the mid-1990's (almost 30 years old). So, while it was in good shape overall, it was outdated and not in style with our preferences. Also, the layout wasn't friendly for a large family - there were elements of the floor plan that just weren't efficient.

We also knew from experience that we really like to host family and friends, and that those gatherings always end up centered on the kitchen and dining spaces. It doesn't matter if there's an open floor plan and a large living room right there, everyone will be standing around in the kitchen. I don't make the rules - that's just how it is.

This page and all that follow it are an effort to document some of the things we did during the project, the reasoning for the choices made, and maybe some tips/tricks we learned on the way.
