I bought my little 98-year-old craftsman back in 2012. Fast forward 3 years, and I finally got to make some pretty significant changes that add back the character that the space so deserved. Upon purchase, this is what my kitchen looked like:
Plain oak cabinets, square tiled floor, laminate countertops, mismatched appliances, and beadboard on the ceiling and the walls. I wish I had taken more pictures back then, but I think you’ll get the idea. You can see in the corner the white stove. It was up against the wall that created the typical size doorway from the dining room to the kitchen. Taking that wall back made the biggest impact on the rest of the house and was the highest priority on my reno list.
