One Room Challenge - Fall 2019 - Week Two! Kitchen Remodel!

Updated: Mar 4

This is my first time as a Guest Participant to this wonderful challenge! The One Room Challenge is not a competition, it is a way to show all the creativity of designers, of people who love to create beautiful spaces and share it! During six weeks (twice a year Spring and Fall), all the participants will show you the process of the make over of a room in six weeks! And I am really proud to be part of it this year for the first time!

So, last week, if you remember, I showed you the room I will remodel: my kitchen! Need to refresh your mind? Here are some pictures:

This week, the contractor started to remove the backsplash (Yes, I hated this backsplash!). Of course, I will change all the appliances, so everything is removed!

Backsplash is out! Now, we need to remove the counter top!

Counter top is out too and all is ready now for the next step! As you can see, I decided to change the counter top shape. Before there were two different levels on the counter top like a lower breakfast table with regular chairs on side, and on the living room side it was kind of a bar with counter stool. I don't really like this difference of level. The new counter top will be one level and really large! More space to cook and now the two different counter spaces (with stool) will be at the same level!

Look at this beautiful Calacatta Quartz! Because the countertop is one giant block with the two new bar overlooks, the contractor had to create this layout to prepare the cut for the installation, taking into account the beam between the two bars. The scheme show how the veins are going thru the different parts to make it look like one single piece, this is the artistic part!

But the counter top will be installed in two weeks.

Next week, the painter will come and start to paint the cabinets in a beautiful color from Benjamin Moore named "Bali". So excited!!!

Isn't it beautiful and bright! The room is pretty dark, this color will bring freshness, brightness and happiness! For those who know me, you are not surprised! I love all turquoisish tones! Next time another big reveal!

See you next week!
