As most of you already know from this put up, we’ve got been reworking our new Lengthy Island residence for the previous yr, if not longer. We have now gotten rather a lot executed, 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 should all be value it in the long run, I simply can’t wait to begin cooking in my new kitchen! Listed here are some pictures of our progress.
First, I wish to present just a few pictures of our kitchen earlier than and in the course of 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 hardware and select the backsplash. The flooring additionally must get stained and completed. We initially wished darkish wood flooring however now the development has gone to lighter flooring so we’re lighter choices. We additionally eradicated the eating room to increase 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 wished a Wolf vary so I reached out them to see if they’d be concerned about collaborating and so they stated sure, we couldn’t be happier!
Though the kitchen is fairly massive, residing on the water we didn’t wish to block the view in order that left us with much less cupboard area. We have been capable of work with our kitchen designer to give you a plan that will make the kitchen useful, and simple 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 be able to’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 primarily like having two burners in a single. I can’t 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 rather a lot, a separate freezer and fridge was a should for me, and I 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 slightly below Wolf Warming Drawer which is able to come in useful once I take a look at recipes and wish to preserve 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 Beneath Counter Wine Unit. That is the place my espresso pot and wine will go, so I might be spending numerous time right here : ) To the fitting of that sink we received 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 could 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 Sunboard radiant heating.
My favourite resolution in the home was including the ship lap alongside the wall of the second flooring, which you’ll be able to see from the primary flooring due to it’s open idea. We nonetheless don’t have a banister so ignore the wooden planks…
Within the grasp rest room, we’re putting in a roman bathe relatively than a bath as a result of we all know we might by no means use it. I 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 out of doors kitchen for the summer season, which we hope to make use of rather a lot! Along with a variety, Tommy insisted on getting a pizza oven so I’m certain there might be numerous pizza recipes in my future.
What we fell in love with most about our new home is the placement. We will go crabbing proper from our yard and love the water views, particularly the sunsets. I hope you loved the kitchen progress and I might be sharing extra pictures as quickly as the home is completed, hoping prior to later!
