Have you thought about remodeling your kitchen? It’s daunting, isn’t it? We thought about our kitchen remodel for about 5 years before we finally decided to go for it.
We started our project a year ago. The kitchen portion took about 3 months. After you read this post, if you’ve been thinking about it, you may decide to pull the trigger!
Our house was built in 1999 and the builders did not build to optimize the view. In Manhattan Beach, most houses by the beach are built with living space on the top floor to take advantage of the ocean views. Homes are very close together with lot sizes between 185-270 sq feet.
While our family room has a view, we felt the kitchen needed it too. This was our main purpose for the remodel, but in the process we wanted to change themes from Mediterranean to Transitional. We also wanted more light in our kitchen. We were interested in creating an open floor plan for our kitchen and living spaces. That way, I wouldn’t feel so “closed off” when I was making a meal while everyone else was in the family room! I love before and after pictures, don’t you? I’m excited for you to see these.

I still can’t believe what a difference it made!
Our homes are such important parts of our lives, aren’t they? Home is our sanctuary. My husband and I wish we had done this project years ago when we first starting thinking about it. Stay tuned for my future post on the main points I learned from our remodel! And if you want to see my powder room remodel, click here.
