It was evident the existing kitchen was not original to the cottage as it was poorly constructed of fiberboard cabinets, plywood walls, linoleum, and was completely cramped.
My brother and I demolished the existing kitchen and removed all the non-bearing walls in an effort to open it up to the dining and living rooms. We removed the plywood ceiling to expose the ceiling joists. This greatly improved the final product by enhancing its cozy cottage feel while giving us a little bit more headroom.
We laid out the kitchen in a way that would maximize space, while creating a more welcoming atmosphere. I replaced the tiny window with one that would allow more light to enter the space.I insulated the walls and installed new bead board wainscoat on the walls before installing the new cabinets, fixtures, and vintage lighting.
