simple is beautiful

Monday Inspiration | A Pretty Kitchen Renovation

Monday, September 22, 2014



You might recall this post where we discussed kitchen soffits/bulkheads and that potentially awkward space that sometimes exists above kitchen cabinets.  I stumbled upon this kitchen renovation this morning and just had to share it with you.  The cabinets are by Kraftmaid and the owners did the work themselves.  Notice the bulkhead and how it gives the kitchen that finished appearance.  Much better than a hundred dusty jars and fake plants sitting atop the cabinets, right?  Click here for all the details.

  3. That is so funny….I was just staring up at that awkward place above my cabinets thinking about how easy it would be to box them in and extend them to the ceiling. What a difference it makes to the overall feel of a kitchen!! And what a pretty and bright kitchen. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love the black countertops in your kitchen. Are they stone?

  6. The kitchen looks beautiful and very custom!! Back in the day when we were renovating our kitchen, we did the same thing. See here: http://greenstreetblog.blogspot.com/2011/06/in-my-kitchen-before-after.html

    I really think it just provides a cohesive look and doesn't force your eye 'up' to stare at an awkward 'empty' space.
