We had to completely renovate our home because of Hurricane Katrina. This was an unexpected remodel. I don't have "during" pictures because things were traumatic enough without having pictures to remind us of everything. I do have pictures of what the kitchen looked like before the hurricane though. We did make some changes.

We're still waiting on our pantry doors (ordered in December! Ugh!), the panels for the sides and back of the island and for the new window (and apron below the window sill) to be installed. Oh, and I was short one medallian on my backsplash so it's vacant until it comes the window and toaster) Other than that, we're pretty much finished!

auzzy's Kitchen

Finally done

Posted on Sun, Jun 4, 06
Link to kitchen photos:

  • Cabinets: Omega/Dynasty Maple Autumn stain with Coffee glaze
  • Floor: Porcelain ceramic tile by Ceramiche Caesar WildLand,Savannah color. Border pieces are their Canyon color
  • Countertop: Tropic brown granite
  • Backsplash: same tiles as the floor. They came in 3x3s as well. We used the Savane color with a few of the Canyon color for accent pieces. We made the border by cutting 1 inch strips of the Canyon color tiles.
  • Appliances:
    • Wolf 36 inch gas cooktop
    • FP dish drawers
    • Ventahood
    • Thermador single oven and warming drawer
    • Subzero 632 (48 in. SXS)
    • Paint: Benj. Moor Mohave desert
  • Restoration hardware pulls; Ephram ORB 4-inch
  • Pendants: Quoizel brand--Isabella Piccolo . The finish is called Imperial bronze and the glass Spanish alabaster
  • Pantry: measures 6ft4in X 4ft6in. I put on a 28 inch door that swings inward. There are shelves on 3 walls. Plus behind the door are triangular shelves. The shelves are all 12 inches wide. The lowest one I had installed 24 inches above the floor so there would be room for the dog food bags and the recycle bin (I actually measured the height of the dog food bags!). The next 2 shelves are spaced at 12 inches, the next two are 8 inches, the one above that is 14 inches and the top is 15 inches from the ceiling. I got the spacing suggestions from a Forum member posting and they've been great. The 8 inch ones are super for canned goods.

The kitchen work is not quite complete – one of the big to-do’s is the backsplash. I’ll update the pictures when we get that in! There are a couple of other minor pending items, but for the most part, the kitchen is done and usable.

Floor plan remained pretty much the same. We moved the family room doorway 10 inches to the right to give us a bit more space next to the cooktop. The change that made the most difference was moving the laundry room wall out 3 ft, thus opening up the doorway to the sun room into the kitchen. Made the whole space look more open/accessible. Got rid of the broom closet – converted this to a small nook with a counter and base/upper cabinets. Upper cabinet here has glass doors and a light within the cabinet.

Main things we love:
- The extended space, the easy access to the sun room.
- The cooktop and the hood, vented to the outside! What a difference!
- The recessed lighting with the dimmers.
- The seating at the peninsula
- The soft close, easy gliding drawers – kids love to slam the drawers!!

We love the corner sink. I was very apprehensive about it in the beginning - but it gave us a lot more usable space in terms of counter space and usable cabinets. The previous location (right under the window) would have resulted in us having two tight corner cabinets. Besides, the counter space in the corner is usually a waste - so having the sink there helps out a great deal!

The kitchen (including the eat in area) was 20x12 before the remodel - after the remodel, it was 23x12. We moved the laundry room wall out 3 ft.

The pantry cabinet is 27inches wide- the usable space inside the cabinet is a little over 25inches.

I don't have any info on the ceiling fixtures. I ordered them from a local lighting store.
The thin pullout next to the sink holds two dishtowel bars. We had to add it as a filler, but we actually use it! It beats hiding the Cluny with dishtowels!

I love my drawer with my baking supplies. Because it's not a very large kitchen, the drawer is right across from the pull-outs with all of my supplies (mixers and pans), and my bowls are nearby in the glass cabinet. In the drawer, I keep all of the basics, so that all I have to do is reach down when I'm mixing and put them right back when I'm finished. There was no surface large enough to even roll out dough in my old kitchen. I love baking in my new kitchen!
