Kitchen Before & After: A Closed Off Kitchen Opens Up

Kitchen Remodel

When Jessie of Cape 27 Blog and her family got their new home, they got right to work on renovations. Just two months after moving in they were making big updates, including opening up this kitchen that was closed off from the rest of the house.

Take a look at what they did.

They started by tearing down the wall that separated the kitchen from the rest of the living space. They also removed a bar-height counter that created another barrier to the kitchen. And what better option to replace it with than more cabinet space?

The original kitchen felt dark with the wood stained cabinets and the blue tile countertops. Plus, the separate stove and oven weren't the most efficient use of the limited space.

By adding the island counter, Jessie was able to gain storage, extra seating and a wine fridge. We're fully in support of that decision! We also love the updated floors. Stained wood is a major upgrade from linoleum.

Jessie says she still has a few details to finish on her kitchen, but we think it looks great. Thanks so much for letting us share your renovation, Jessie!
