I am so excited to share the makings of my dream kitchen with you! You may remember a year ago we moved to the Dallas area after realizing middle school was fast approaching and Fort Worth schools weren’t meeting our kids educational needs. We did a ton of research and landed in a tiny bedroom community that we have adored from day one — the new school included. Our house sold so fast making the hardest part of the process, finding a home that we would love.
After moving every couple of years we were ready to find a ‘forever’ home. I shared our top three home options with you and then revealed the one we picked — the house with an awesome location, a gorgeous lot, and a great floor plan, but also, the one with horrible paint colors and a kitchen that almost made me cry! Quickly after moving in, we began painting and it made a huge difference! About a month after the move, I drew the first rough draft of my ‘dream kitchen’ plans. After many changes, these are the kitchen plans I copied and gave to the contractors we interviewed — nothing fancy, just my thoughts roughly sketched out on paper.
Wall that Used to be Shared with Wet Bar.
Island – Side Facing Fridge.
Island – Side Facing Family Room.
Wall of Cabinets Surrounding Refrigerator.
Goals for My Dream Kitchen –
1. Create a better traffic flow by getting rid of the angled wall.
2. Replace the breakfast bar with a large island.
3. Allow more light into the kitchen by opening wall to more windows.
4. Increase visibility of the backyard from the kitchen.
5. Replace desk and wet bar for storage cabinets.
6. Change the depth of upper cabinets to 15 inches
