This kitchen was originally a galley kitchen. We took down two walls--one between the kitchen and dining room, and one between the dining room and living room. We also removed two windows for wall space.

Love the color scheme and the second color on the island. What is that finish?

The cabinet color on the center island is Van Dyke Brown by Sherwin Williams in the flat finish. The cabinets were custom made by my contractor--all real wood not MDF.

Looks awesome. 1 small critique: why do you feel the need to use white plugs? they stick out a bit too much. but great job!

Beautiful. Love the door under the cook top. What kind of storage is under there, drawers, pull out shelves?

Fantastic. I really enjoy the richer, warmer tones that you went with. That sink is gorgeous.

Please change the white plugs to a dark or cream shade from the tiles. The plugs will blend in and not stick out like a sore thumb. I do love your new kitchen.

I LOVE that you went with the creamy warm whites and browns - beautiful job. Looks like you've done something I am considering for my own kitchen remodel - you took over an informal breakfast area and carried the countertops and cabinets into that space for a larger kitchen. So I have two questions for you:

1. When you post new pics, could you post one or two that show where the dining space is now in relation to the larger kitchen?

2. In terms of difficulty/cost, how does closing up windows rate? Is it a huge deal construction/cost wise, or not so much? (I'd need to get rid of one window in my breakfast area to gain wall space for cabinets/counters.)

Thanks in advance...just gorgeous. And best of all - it just looks so much more functional.

This is just fabulous. I love your color choices, the flooring and the back splash. And, what a wonderful island! Is that a glass top counter? Do you have bar stools there? The pullout cupboards by the stove top are awesome, too. I never thought getting rid of windows would be a good idea. I can't believe the kitchen looks brighter! I can't find anything I would do differently.

We are still looking for the right counter stools to go with the granite counter. Closing up the windows accomplished a few things: 1)gaining wall space that we lost when removing the wall 2) adding more cabinet storage which freed up the center island for a beverage cooler, another trash pullout and seating 3) moving the stove top from the opposite "wall".

Closing up the wall may have eliminated the cost of new windows but it did add cost in stucco repair and the challenge of matching existing stucco finish. In the end, it made for a better layout and we are pleased with the outcome.
