I am so excited to finally be sharing about a project I’ve been working on for a few weeks now. But before I go too far down the rabbit hole, let me give you some background. This reno is for some people that are very near and dear to my heart, the ones that gave this gracious creature you see before you life….my parents! They’ve recently sold their home and while I could spend actual paragraphs about the roller coaster of emotions I feel about my childhood home no longer being in my life, blah blah blah, I’ll get to the part where I’m absolutely elated that I have this amazing opportunity to design and help execute an amazing home makeover. And makeover is not used lightly in this scenario, as you will see here soon. Lucky for them they have a designer in the family who is chomping at the bit to get her greedy claws on this space and make it ah-mazing.
I was first tasked to start with the kitchen since, to put it delicately, is a freaking gut job.
The 70’s called, they want their everything back. While I can appreciate some vintage and a little retro…this like baaaddd dated. The space itself is actually pretty open and there are no weird bump outs or anything that restricts us too much. The only thing is the soffit, which is staying for cost savings, that might affect the height of the cabinets. Right now the cabinets are pretty tall and even though there is technically enough space between them and the counter (15″), I am suggesting they leave about 18″ – believe me, that extra 3″ makes all the difference.
We’re also say buh-bye to that weird peninsula. Well, I guess really we’re saying adios to everything so hope you’re not attached to anything! I mean I know in the future when we’re all riding around in our space ships on the moon we’re going to scratch our heads on what we’re designing today, but like, was this kitchen ever cute??
I’m currently working on specifying final finishes which I’m hoping to share with you all soon! But for now feast your eyes on the inspiration. Shoutout to my folks for being like, super into this. With God as my witness I am putting those green tiles in that kitchen.
So what do you guys think?? Progress is currently being made and stuff us being ordered and I can’t wait to share! Follow along with #EgbertHouseRevival on Instagram to see updates!
