Week of Kitchen Renovations: Before and After Pics

To wrap up my week of kitchen renovations, I wanted to highlight some overall before and after pics of our kitchen and dining room. It’s still hard to imagine that we lived with our old kitchen for two full years before the renovation started. I sometimes can’t even remember what it used to look like. To me, that means our renovation was a success. We definitely had sleepless nights debating what to do, what we could afford, and various other discussions about the renovation. But at the end of the day, it was worth every penny and every ounce of stress before and during the renovation process.

So without further ado, here are the before and after pics…

This is the view coming in the back entry of our condo. We use this entry 95% of the time, so this is what Hubby and I come home to every day. Before (on demo-day) and After:

Most people who don’t live in the condo would enter the kitchen through the hallway towards to front of the condo. You can see the fridge over in the dining area in these pics. Here are those before (one from move-in day and one from demo-day) and afters:

Here are the before and afters from the sink area:

Looking towards the stove area from the dining room (again the first before is from move-in day and the second before is from demo-day):

And last but not least the dining room:

We still have a couple unfinished projects that we’d like to get done for the kitchen to really feel completely done, but it feels good to be at the point we are. I’ll be sure to post any of these projects as we finish them.

    Wow, I can’t wait to see the completion! It’s also very smart that you made freezer meals…that really does save money and time! I hated when we reno our kitchen, we had to eat out for weeks…it got quite annoying to pick something up for dinner. We spent more money eating out vs. eating at home! Good luck with your kitchen reno, I bet it will be fantastic!

    Wow, I can’t believe the magic you created in that small kitchen, I am so excited for you. I can relate, my kitchen is smaller, but thankfully we are house hunting and kitchen is big on the priority list.

    Great job preparing! That baby is packed!

    I haven’t seen a radiator in forever! 🙂 Looking forward to seeing the new kitchen.

    That is pretty impressive all those yummies that you’ve created with a limited amount of space.
