As most of you realize from this put up, we’ve got been reworking our new Lengthy Island house for the previous 12 months, if not longer. We now have gotten so much carried out, and at the same time as I share these pictures there has already been much more progress, however we nonetheless have fairly a bit of labor to do earlier than we transfer in. I do know it’ll all be value it ultimately, I simply can’t wait to start out cooking in my new kitchen! Listed here are some pictures of our progress.
First, I need to present a couple of pictures of our kitchen earlier than and throughout the transform course of. We went with an all white kitchen, as you’ll be able to see from the pictures we nonetheless want to put in the and pick the backsplash. The flooring additionally must get stained and completed. We initially needed darkish wooden flooring however now the development has gone to lighter flooring so we’re taking a look at lighter choices. We additionally eradicated the eating room to broaden the kitchen and create pantry.
We went with a farm sink within the island, and all our home equipment are Wolf. I used to be debating marble counter tops, however we went with Quartzite Monte Blanc as a substitute, which has much less upkeep. I had alternatives to collaborate with many equipment manufacturers, however we solely needed a Wolf vary so I reached out them to see if they’d be focused on collaborating and so they mentioned sure, we couldn’t be happier!
Though the kitchen is fairly massive, dwelling on the water we didn’t need to block the view in order that left us with much less cupboard house. We have been in a position to work with our kitchen designer to give you a plan that might make the kitchen practical, and straightforward to prepare dinner and entertain. Pictured above we’ve got a Wolf Drop Down Door Microwave on the island in addition to a dishwasher which you’ll’t see close to the sink.
We love the 48″ Wolf Sealed Burner Rangetop as a result of it has dual-stacked sealed burners which have two tiers of flame to ship each excessive warmth and decrease warmth settings. The management is exact and it’s basically like having two burners in a single. I can not WAIT to prepare dinner on this! Slightly below that we’ve got cupboards for our pots and pans. To the fitting and left of these drawers we’ve got the spice racks that pull out.
On the finish of our island we’re putting in a butcher block which we’re nonetheless ready on. On the again wall, we’ve got a Sub Zero Panel Prepared Constructed-in Freezer on the left and Fridge on the fitting. As a result of I prepare dinner so much, a separate freezer and fridge was a should for me, and I really like that it’s not as deep as most fridges so issues don’t get misplaced within the again. In between we’ve got a Wolf double wall oven and just under Wolf Warming Drawer which is able to come in useful once I check recipes and need to maintain them heat till dinner.
Simply to the left of the fridge and double wall ovens we’ve got a espresso/wine station with a Sub Zero Below Counter Wine Unit. That is the place my espresso pot and wine will go, so I will probably be spending a number of time right here : ) To the fitting of that sink we obtained a second panel prepared Asko dishwasher, my husband does the dishes so he insisted on two.
Pictured under is the opposite finish of the kitchen the place we may have a kitchen desk. We love the seashore really feel of the home windows and sliders, that are Anderson and selected white on the within and black on the skin. We additionally made them bigger so you’ll be able to have a greater view of the again.
Listed here are some pictures of the kitchen earlier than. It was fairly, only a bit small and dated. As you’ll be able to see we beforehand had baseboard heating which we eliminated and changed with Warmboard radient heating.
My favourite choice in the home was including the ship lap alongside the wall of the second ground, which you’ll see from the primary ground due to it’s open idea. We nonetheless don’t have a banister so ignore the wooden planks…
Within the grasp toilet, we’re putting in a roman bathe somewhat than a tub as a result of we all know we might by no means use it. I really like this hexagon marble tile within the bathe space.
This was the grasp earlier than, it was too massive so we made it smaller and changed it with a a lot wanted walk-in closet.
We additionally began constructing an outside kitchen for the summer season, which we hope to make use of so much! Along with a variety, Tommy insisted on getting a pizza oven so I’m certain there will probably be a number of pizza recipes in my future.
What we fell in love with most about our new home is the situation. We are able to go crabbing proper from our yard and love the water views, particularly the sunsets. I hope you loved the kitchen progress and I will probably be sharing extra pictures as quickly as the home is completed, hoping before later!
