TITLE: Kitchen Remodeling Ideas
NARRATION: My family and I recently remodeled our kitchen. It was an enormous job that stretched out over three months. We ripped out everything, from the ceiling all the way down to the floor. It was a vacant room. But you know what, it was worth it. And I’ll tell you why… we love our new kitchen. Hi, I’m Tim Carter from askthebuilder.com, and I’d like to show you exactly how we remodel our kitchen.
The demolition of the kitchen involved removing all the old cabinets and countertops. We also had to open up the kitchen to the breakfast room. This required removal of a short-bearing wall. I had to install a beam up in the ceiling to replace that wall. We also took out a lot of drywall on the walls and ceiling.
The old tile floor was a nightmare to remove. It took a week to chip up the old tile and remove a layer of plywood.
We replaced the old double oven with a new one. The old cooktop was in our island, but the new cooktop is along a wall. The new island is made with ivory colored cabinets and a gorgeous deep green grant top. My wife wanted as many of the appliances hidden as possible with cabinet fronts. This includes the dishwasher, freezer drawers, ice maker, and refrigerator.
The custom cabinets came with all sorts of trim pieces that allowed us to create interesting accent touches at the cabinet and panels, at the sink bases, and the cook top cabinet. The old countertops were ceramic tile that had seen better days. We love the light colored granite that complements the green granite on the island. That old ceramic tile floor was replaced with warm hardwood that is really easy to maintain.
You can see our kitchen remodeling job involved a lot of work. But you know what, those dust filled days, they are long-forgotten. We love our new kitchen, and I think you’re going to enjoy your kitchen remodeling project.
