Before & After: A Vintage Stove Spurs an Entire Kitchen Remodel
When Terri first bought her 1950s-era home, this is what her kitchen looked like. Thanks to a remodel in the 1970s by the previous owner, the kitchen felt out of place with the rest of the house.
Terri’s number-one priority for her remodel was to be able to include her vintage Kelvinator oven she found on Craigslist, but she also wanted to have a kitchen that had plenty of modern conveniences. Terri worked with Inspired Kitchen Design to complete the remodel. Take a look at her kitchen now.
We love this update! The Kelvinator range is definitely an integral part of the kitchen. Notice how the fixtures on the drawers and doors mimic the handles of the oven. And the black-and-white-tile floor perfectly ties it all together with a 1950s vibe.
Just to show you how much change this kitchen has seen, here’s a look at how it looked right before the remodel. Terri had made smaller cosmetic changes in fits and starts, but had waited on a full remodel until now. This newest iteration is definitely our favorite.
Here’s a closer look at the vintage oven that Terri used as the basis for her kitchen remodel.
The other focal point of the kitchen is the wonderful island counter with a dining bar. Instead of having a kitchen table, Terri opted for this setup to increase her cooking and storage space, while still having an eat-in kitchen.
Finally, because Terri outfitted her kitchen with IKEA cabinets, she was able to also maximize her storage in the cabinets as well. Terri used the hidden drawer options available in the new SEKTION cabinets. It’s such a genius idea to include an extra drawer above the trash and recycling bins to store the garbage bags.
Thanks for sharing your remodel, Terri!
