This was our before kitchen and then our kitchen we planned and did ourselves.

Galley kitchen but have a view of the sound, which we couldn't see because of the low cabinets. Kitchen too small and dining room too big for two people. We love how it turned out. Now wondering if I should put door pulls on or leave it.

It looks great! Awesome work. The backsplash is quite lovely! I would recommend putting on door pulls in either a chrome or brushed nickel finish. It will break up the cabinetry a little bit and really tie in nicely with your appliances.

Beautiful transformation! The upper cabinets that overhang peninsulas are something that just never works in my opinion.

Congratulations on a beautiful kitchen and the bonus view you get now.

It looks great! I do think some pulls would complete the look. Nice work!

I think pulls would give your kitchen a more finished look. Find some that don't project too much from the cabinets.
Beautiful transformation!

Good move on removing the upper cabinets...it really opens up the space. Love the materials you selected too!

Beautiful job! Definitely put on some hardware. Something in a oil rubbed bronze finish would look great.

Handles also keep wood doors looking better longer.

hparks74 - we love the location of the stove now. We like to entertain and this way while my husband is cooking we can watch and talk to him. It's great. Thank you all for your comments - looks like I will be bringing some pulls home and playing with what I like. :)
