I am planning on making some changes to a dated kitchen that is not my style. I haven't done any updates since moving in.
I recently posted a question about landscape for the front of my house, which I will be working on in the spring. I considered updating the patio door to French doors, but if I'm planning to update the kitchen that might not be necessary.
I have a small galley kitchen with very little counterspace. The first picture is looking into the kitchen from the dining room.
The second picture is on the other side of the counter. You can just see a little of the sliding door. Along the back wall is a built in banquette made from an old wagon wheel table. My backsplash is slate salvaged from an old schoolhouse, which I actually like and appreciate. But, I love glass tile, too!
The third pic is taken from a room off our back entry where everyone comes in (I live on 3 acres and the back entry is nearest the parking.). The door to the right is a broom closet and the door to the left goes to a laundry room and pantry area.
Finally, pic 4 shows built in flourescent lighting that I despise!
I hate the cabinets, awful fluorescent lighting, white tile, counters, appliances and lack of space. I've considered a host of options but go back and forth. I'm looking for others who might be able to think outside my box, especially in terms of layout.
My style is very eclectic. I have a neutral tan palette in my living and dining area with a rusty orange accent wall. I like a little modern, a little MCM, a little traditional. Toss in a few antique treasures and I'm happy!
As much as I'd like to bump the space out to enlarge the kitchen, my budget just won't allow it.
I'm thankful for any thoughts. And usually my table and counter aren't cluttered, getting rid of some stuff :)
