    That was such a satisfying before & after!

    I never thought I would like black window casings…and now I’m obsessed.

    Also ADORE that modern ceiling light fixture.

    Great job!!

    This is an amazing transformation! I love the result and also the thoughtful sharing about what to think about when undertaking a remodeling project of this magnitude. Great work – enjoy your beautiful space!

  • Jana Bek says

    Wowsa, there is so many beautiful details to take in! I’m so in loved with the sweet dining moment and those gorgeous windows! congrats darlin!

  • Karen says

    Wow – what a transformation! Where are those gold frames from? They are lovely! And what size are the pictures? They are so elegant!

    • Brittany says

      Also, I forgot to tell you the sizes: the square image is 24″ x 24″, and the Taj Mahal is 30″ x 40″. Both are matted.

    So beautiful! How are the counters holding up? Also, what is the clearance on the left side of the refrigerator like? We have a similar wall in our current remodel, and I am not sure how much I would be bothered by the left French door hitting the wall. Thanks, Kimberly

    • Brittany says

      Thanks Kimberly! The counters are great. When I first discussed with Daltile, they indicated that if I dropped something really heavy and hard on them, then I might have a problem. So far, I’ve had a few things slip out of my hands and land on the counter, and it’s been just fine. Also, I love that I don’t have to worry about staining or hot things.

      In regards to the refrigerator clearance, mine was super tight. In fact, we had to remove the baseboard in order to squeeze it in. I couldn’t push it all the way back or I wouldn’t be able to open the left door. It’s a counter depth refrigerator, but it sits out a few inches. To mask this, I added a piece of casing above the refrigerator, so you can’t see the gap. It doesn’t bother me at all and I’m typically very sensitive to such discrepancies. Let me know if you have any other questions!

        Hey Brittany. The Transformation is absolutely stunning.

        As I understand, it’s been over 3 years since you transformed your kitchen. Can you please share your feedback on how are the counters holding up? Do you have any scratches/breakage or shine wearing off? Also, does your kitchen have heavy usage?

        I am remodeling my kitchen and considering porcelain countertop. Your feedback will be much appreicated.

  • Julie says

    I saw this porcelain slab just the other day and fell in love. It is nice to be able to see it installed especially since we will be doing white cabinets as well.

    I’ve heard that fabrication can be difficult. How did you process go if you don’t mind my asking? Everyone is warning me away from if for fear of the edges chipping but I love the idea of it not staining.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hi! Congratulations on a beautiful kitchen! I am working with Cliq Studios for a kitchen reno am trying to decide which white to go with between the “Cloud White” and the “White” which is a little creamier. I am wondering if the Cloud White feels good to you or if it feels a little BRIGHT? Also, what color paint did you use for the rest of the space (walls, trim, ceiling, etc.)? I am hoping to find a good color match and paint it all the same (as it looks like that’s what you did?). SW Highly Reflective White seems to be the best match for Cloud White but again I’m just worried it will be TOO REFLECTIVE 🙂 It looks gorgeous in your photos but always hard to tell what the real feel is when it comes to shades of white so would LOVE to hear your thoughts. Thank you so much!!

    • Brittany says

      You can order samples!!! I’d go and order the free samples to take a look! Personally, I love something a little creamier as it it’s not as bright!

  • Kate says

    The only thing I can say is: Wow! Your kitchen looks so stylish and seems twice as large as before the renovation. And what else is worth noting that I was struck by an unusual oven range, I will take it into account for my future kitchen repair. Thank you!

  • Ashley says

    Hi Brittany!
    I don’t think your kitchen floor was something that you replaced, since I didn’t see it mentioned, but I love it! Are you able to tell me the brand/color of the wood?
    Thank you!

    Hi there,

    It’s been some time since you redid your beautiful kitchen and we are considering porcelain too and wanted to check in to see if you’re still happy with your countertop and backsplash.

    • Brittany says

      Hi! Mary loves the porcelain. She found that while the porcelain was cheaper than marble, it was more expensive to install, so just keep that in mind!

    • Sofika says

      I’m wondering how well did the porcelain wear three years later? Also very much interested in using it in my kitchen.

      • Brittany says

        I asked Mary, the owner and she said this: T

        he fabricators took care of the edge. It does have a miter …. Porcelain is more fragile than other mediums so fabrication can be a little tricky. You’ll want a void fabricator.

        But it’s been great. No chips to date. Just like the day it was installed.

  • Sophie says

    he just thing I can say is: Wow! Your kitchen looks so up-to-date and appears to be two times as extensive as before the redesign. Furthermore, what else is actually significant that I was struck by a strange broiler range, I will consider it for my future kitchen fix. Much thanks to you! Kitchen design Swansea

  • David says

    I lived in an apartment in Milwaukee that had an old outdated kitchen. It was cute, but it needed a face lift like the one you did here! Anyway, I LOVE that teal seating you put in the remodeled room – it’s great little touch of color that creates contrast, and that color is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!
