Jodi & Ryan's Transformed Kitchen

Kitchen Spotlight

Ryan is a stay-at-home dad and food blogger, so a great kitchen is extremely important to him. But when he and Jodi first moved in to their current home they were shocked to see an extremely outdated kitchen that just didn't want to budge. Now, however, with ample storage to sleek lines — Jodi and Ryan's kitchen is exactly what they need.

The kitchen counters were atomic blue translucent plastic. They weren't sure why anyone would have chosen that type of material for a kitchen counter. The process of removing them wasn't a fun one — the counters cracked and shattered all over the place!

We're really happy to see that Jodi and Ryan replaced those horrid countertops with butcher block. Not only is butcher block aesthetically pleasing but super useful as well. The rustic look of the butcher block accents the sleek lines of the subway tiles covering the walls and the minimalist cabinets. The color scheme of gray, white and wood tones is spot on.
