I thought I would show pics of the mini flip at Mom's of just the kitchen today, and decided before and after shots would be the easiest way to do it.
Kitchen as it was before the flip. The cabinetry is all solid wood and much higher quality than we could have replaced them with, so we decided to keep them.
Tight shot of Corian counters, blacksplash, window sill, and molded sink
Tighter shot showing the quartz counter top, new under mount sink, tile backsplash, and new faucet and new windowsill
Family dining area centered in a bay window
Post flip but a narrower view. Paint and a new light fixture is all that really changed.
We kept my grandmother's table in the eat -in area just to give it some scale. It their table when she and my grandfather were first married in 1918. Neither my sister nor I could use it in our homes, but after the house sells it is going to my cousin's daughter. I am just happy for it to stay in the family.
View from the dining room door
Same view but slightly different angle
You might or might not have noticed there is no picture showing the refrigerator. It is on the other side of the room but we had a little snafu. The new quartz countertop is a tiny bit wider than the previous Corian was. The refrigerator was always a tight fit, but now it will not fully recess into its "hole". We are waiting for a little adjustment, which is the last piece of the puzzle before we can list the house.
Fingers crossed it happens soon. Though this house has been a big part of our lives since we were kids, we are ready to lock the door and hand the keys over to another family, who will hopefully love it as much as Mom and Dad did.
