Renovations from PoPville – Kitchen and Half Bath Addition


The reader writes:

“As you will see in the before photos, the kitchen was very outdated when we purchased the home. Lots of 1970’s appliances in scooby-doo brown and a lot of pink laminate countertop!

We found an awesome contractor that worked with us to take out the wall that separated the old galley kitchen from the dining room to create one large open room. We also closed off the “nook” part of the kitchen and turned it into a half bathroom (access is through the sunroom). We had all electric and plumbing updated throughout the house and lots of extra outlets were added.

Although, there’s actually less kitchen space now, the layout and new energy efficient appliances have made life in our DC home much more enjoyable!

Things I absolutely love about the new kitchen:

– The openness makes it easy to entertain. We can cook in the kitchen while holding a conversation with our guest in the dining room :)
– Subway tile. I love the clean look of the subway tile, especially the tiles that go all the way to the ceiling.
– Vintage style lights. They match the antique light fixtures throughout the rest of the house.
– Our island provides extra storage and is not a permanent fixture.
– Double ovens. I really didn’t think I would need two ovens, but I’m so happy my husband talked me into this. We can cook a pie and a roast at the same time!”


Ed. Note: If you have a renovation you’d be willing to share please send some before and after photos to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com.
