One Room Challenge Goodrich Kitchen - Week 2

Kitchen Design

This week is all about the layout and selecting cabinetry for our renovation in the kitchen. We have decided to go with a shaker style white cabinet. Reminder that this is a rental and we need to get the house appraised as high as possible so we are going safe with bright white with black hardware. The previous layout included two L-shaped with mismatch cabinet.

We are going to be turning the kitchen into a U-shaped formation relocating refrigerator and adding in a wider pantry.

The big debate is if we should keep the microwave above the cooktop. I have visions of a custom hood vent with floating shelves on either side. The microwave will move to the pantry. This is increasing the cost of the build but we were able to save a ton on all the demo and with my husband in the industry we are getting great deals on the cabinets and flooring.

I also plan on scouring the web for deals on a pantry size microwave and vent hood.

I am a very visual person and so decided to tape out the entire kitchen. I do this so that I can make sure that everything has access to open and if there is a good flow within space. Another hot topic with my polls in stories - we do not have room for an island. Again it is a rental and it should not make or break finding a renter.

So much to come:

  • Building and installing cabinets

  • Creating custom vent hood

  • DIY floating shelves

  • Back splash install

  • Countertops and floors

Head over to check out all of the other designers and guests. There is inspiration with every single design. Apartment Therapy is the official media partner and what a dream it would be to be featured by them! #ORCAT
