A Jaw-Dropping Gorgeous Kitchen Remodel – Before And After

Tour a gorgeous remodeled kitchen filled with fabulous details.

Today, I want to take you on a tour of my friend, Nancy’s, recently completed kitchen remodel. Nancy had been dreaming about and planning this kitchen for a long while.  It sure was worth the wait because it is gorgeous!

There’s so much to show you, but let’s start off with one of my favorites.  This amazing over-sized custom hood is the crowning glory to Nancy’s new Viking range.

Nancy designed the hood herself.  The hood wouldn’t make the statement that it does were it not for her high and low search for the largest and chunkiest corbels she could find!  Don’t overlook the fabulous arabesque tile backsplash – it’s swoon worthy for sure.

This is the same area before.  You can see that Nancy kept the original light pendants.

The refrigerator and microwave were relocated to the left of the range, on a wall that formerly held a wall oven with the microwave above it.  

The display nook above the refrigerator is another custom piece that Nancy designed.  Nancy specifically designed its large size to showcase her many wonderful accessories.

This same area looked totally different before.  A new island with a richly stained butcher block counter replaced the old one.

A knife and utensil organizer that she added to the island keeps them within easy reach during food prep.

Nancy’s home has a very open floor plan in the main living areas.  In several of these photos, you get glimpses of the family room and dining room that her spacious kitchen opens up to.

Glass front cabinets with lighting give Nancy more spots for displaying favorite pieces.

Drawer organizers allow for easier accessibility to plates and bowls instead of having to reach into upper cabinets.

Entering the kitchen from the family room, you get a good look at the large island topped with quartz counters and the breakfast area.

The hallway to the left goes to her laundry room and garage entry.

The back of the island is covered with painted beadboard and sports gorgeous leather barstools.

The breakfast area contains a new table and chairs and mercury glass light fixture and overlooks the golf course that her home is situated on.

Nancy removed the old valances and had a carpenter beef up the trim above the windows.

Leaving the windows bare gives the entire area a new look that is so much brighter and allows you to really take in the view!

The breakfast area before was Tuscan style containing a glass top table with a metal base, metal chairs and dark fabric.

The wine bar was formerly a built-in desk.

A wonderful display cabinet was added to store and showcase gray and white dishes and accessories.

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed Nancy’s kitchen. There’s just so much eye candy in there! Looks like I’m going to be living in that house for two or three weeks without one. Oy.

      1. I love this kitchen and your blog. I have been having a problem for weeks with an ad (I think by Facebook) that keeps locking the screen so I cannot read your blog! Very frustrating. It takes a good 10 minutes of back and forth before I can finally get past the ad?

    Love the gray in the kitchen, it is so much richer looking and very classic. I love your blog I always come away inspired.
    Please follow my blog and leave a comment from time to time to let me know how I am doing. Interior Design is such a huge field that it’s hard to get going. Thanx, Jo

I’m going to feature Nancy’s kitchen on my FB page in a few minutes. 🙂 Hope you will stop by again, Suzy!
