Winter time is ski season so the cottage renovation went on hold for a few months……..
Fortunately the snow finally melted and work was back on. Of course one thing lead to another and a small renovation became a bit larger renovation. While moving the kitchen cabinets they literally fell apart due to age. So we had to replace them. While working around the kitchen window it cracked so we had to replace it. The silver lining to all this is that it gave us the chance to re-think how we could improve the function of the kitchen/cottage. We decided that the view was more important than storage so we opted to install a larger window over the counter and forgo the upper cabinets.
While researching new kitchen cabinets we decided that the original layout was a bit awkward with the stove blocking access to the last cupboard so we decided to design the new cabinets in an L-shape configuration.
No gut job is ever nice.
A photo from an issue of Canadian House and Home magazine featuring a space with a sloped ceiling and exposed beams with the combination of whites and wood provided some inspiration.
The renovation keeps moving along. Stay tuned.
Looking forward to the re-do!
