2011 Kitchen Remodel Under $50K

This tiny 80 sq. ft. kitchen in a small one bedroom condo was last updated in the 1980’s when the building was converted to condominiums. The cheap base grade cabinets and appliances provided the bare minimum storage and functionality, but didn’t suit the personality of the owner. The owner wanted to update the aesthetics of the space and add storage space, but also wanted an informal dining area to replace the dining table that was taking up too much space in the small living area. The owner travelled extensively and had no need to cook large meals. The new design also needed to enhance the warmth that new hardwood flooring provided and retain the whimsical farmhouse look of the existing lighting fixture. To accomplish this, warm maple cabinets, muted green granite and bead board paneling were use to reflect the owner’s style. The peninsula was extended to add more cabinets and roll out shelves to the base cabinets. The bulky stove and microwave were replaced with smaller units to allow wider cabinets. The door swing into the bedroom was reversed to allow the enlarged peninsula and create the breakfast bar. Under counter lighting was added as well as a faux French door to reflect light from the opposite windows.
