How I made the most of a TINY kitchen while adding almost 20k value to this home!


This kitchen was originally a galley kitchen w/open dining area. It was very tight and had cabinetry on both sides of a center aisle. I added a wall and converted the dining room back into a 3rd bedroom. I also added a railing where downstairs staircase is and put a railing in order (instead of a half wall) to give it an open feel. I moved all the cabinets to the right side of the kitchen in order to achieve a traditional, functional L. Transforming this kitchen and converting the dining room back into a 3rd bedroom added almost $20,000 to the final sale price of the home.

As you can see from the pictures, it was quite the transformation.

Materials :I used Fabuwood Nexus Frost shaker style cabinets and opted to bring them to the ceiling with crown. The floors were stained with Jacobean and three coats of matte finish poly. Quarts was jamaica quartz(amazing sparkle) and the backsplash is arctic ice from HD. I also went with the larger 3.5" window trim and 5.25 colonial base. I see many people who go with the smaller trim and it really makes it luck bland! All appliances are Frigidaire purchased from Lowe's. The slide in range was on clearance and I managed to pick it up for $180. The rest of the appliances were purchased on black friday! It was a steal!
