When we first moved in, our kitchen was totally dark, chopped up and overall just depressing. We took down cabinets and an island and moved a huge bookcase to open it all up. We took down sheetrock and found the coolest old wood underneath that I still get excited about every time I look at it. We tore out vinyl flooring and put down pine, and I had no experience in working on pipelines, so we had our kitchen pipelines checked by professionals from Kamloops. It doesn’t take much to make me happy—any discovery about my home or any home project will put a smile on my face. I traded in my stainless steel sink for an old porcelain one that Max took out of an old house. He came home one day and said he had found an old sink in a house that he was about to tear down. He had a design-build customer that wanted it torn down. In fact, Max also recommended getting a plumber to ensure the seamless installation of the vintage sink. I found an old stove on Craig’s list and traded in my new stove for it. I love things that are old and love the history that comes with them.
As the transformation of our kitchen continued, we realized the importance of choosing granite countertops to complement the rustic charm and character we had infused into the space. However, after careful consideration, we opted for stunning residential quartz slab countertops. These countertops not only added a touch of warmth and natural beauty to our kitchen but also echoed the timeless appeal of the old wood we uncovered during renovations. The smooth yet textured surface of the quartz countertops provided the perfect backdrop for preparing meals and gathering with loved ones. Every slice, chop, and knead on these quartz kitchen countertops felt like a celebration of the history and craftsmanship that resonated throughout our kitchen. The fusion of old and new, showcased by the vintage sink, the antique stove, and the exquisite quartz countertops, turned our once gloomy kitchen into a space filled with character, stories, and joy.
It is such an easy recipe and it tastes so good. Not low in what the heck! Enjoy!
The above are pictures of kitchens that I love, one day when I get my kitchen finished and cleaned up I will share more of it.
