We are about to get a huge snowstorm here so what better time to start dreaming of the beach? Perfect timing to share the shore kitchen before and afters! I know, I know - this is the slowest quick renovation in the history of time but I think it was worth it. So much brighter, beachy (without being too over the top thematic) and functional.
You have already seen most of the work in prior posts but it was time to do a complete post with sources.
As you might remember, we wanted to keep the renovation tab down so we decided to keep all the plumbing exactly as is. The only real structural change to the room was tearing down half the closet and opening up the space on the left. Essentially we made a galley kitchen into a L shape – giving us more counter space, a more open feel to the room and allowing the light from the kitchen window to spill into the rest of the apartment. After that it was just finishing work. We went with stock cabinetry and affordable tile flooring to offset the splurge of the marble countertop. The room is so much more open and clean looking now – I really love how it all turned out.
It does need a few more accessories (perhaps a bigger shell or wood bowl under the jellyfish print?) and some artwork in the seating area (maybe a new whale chalkboard or some old window art?). I haven't found just the right thing but I'll stumble upon something eventually.
All the details are below (or at least as much as I could remember) but if I missed anything or you just have random question, do not hesitate to ask.
