Hi, I’m Becky

For the last 5 years we have lived in our fixer upper home. We’ve done little projects here and there but now we are getting to the good stuff. I’ve always loved interior decorating and had a vision of the potential our house had lying in store.

I hope you follow along with our everyday life and feel inspired to create a space you love no matter where you are.

Kitchen Cabinet Plans

Kitchen Cabinet Plans

We’ve been working on our kitchen cabinet plans and I wanted to share the layout so far. We still have a few adjustments to make to measurements. I’m also going to make a line list for what we need space for and if it’s all going to fit.

I was really hoping to have space for all my appliances, but I have a lot of large appliances like the dehydrator, Kitchenaid mixer, food processor and blender that would take up entire cabinets!

There are some tricky elements to the kitchen in that we have two peninsulas and corner cabinets. I gained some extra space but we are still trying to figure out how to best use those corner cabinets. We already have one lazy susan and I don’t really love it. I think we are going to try doing an access cabinet from the back side of the peninsula so we can make the most of the space.

Here is a birds eye view right now. The peninsula across from the fridge is the one that will have the counter overhang and the stools.

The vent hood over the oven won’t have a shelf like in the picture above. Its in there as a place holder right now.

We are going to switch out some of the drawers in the peninsula for a microwave.

Instead of a Lazy Susan, this is where we will access the cabinet from the outside of the corner. We really need the space for the appliances like I mentioned above.

We are meeting up with our cabinet guy next week so hopefully we can do some of these final tweaks!
