Kitchen Remodel Finally Done!


Took about a year to save for this and ended up doing the demo work myself to help save money and upgrade the backsplash while we were at it. I was tempted to do the install, but I just didn't have the time compared to how cheap and fast the labor was. I did learn how to attach the sink, faucet, garbage disposal, and dishwasher in, so there was some fun involved outside of the demo.

Took just under a month from start to finish and stayed under the $10k budget not including appliances. I did this all backwards and started with the appliances minus the dishwasher first.

Taking the kitchen apart.

Thank you everyone. The main goal was to go neutral for resale, and also stick with something we both liked. She was on vacation out of the country when I came to the conclusion of lets do the backsplash so we agreed on colors over texting.

The idea of everything we touched inside was to go more modern but keep some of the original 1930's features. This is a 1300 sqft cottage.

I was not into stainless steel, granite or glass tile backsplashes so this went out of my comfort zone on what I wanted to do. Once it was all done, I became a big fan of some of the trends. It was hard to not pick the beautiful marble I saw once at the stone yard, but since the kitchen will be used a lot and we may live here longer than I expect I also wanted what quartz had to offer over marble.

Just started to season our first cast iron pan to really christen the kitchen.
