It brings me great joy to introduce our new tiny kitchen.
Do you keep in mind where we started eighteen months ago? Brace yourself, hide the youngsters….
This is a 400 square foot space, with a bathroom, that’s attached to the back of our barn. In its previous life it was a extremely dude-ly workplace for the old sawmill that’s on our home. When we bought the residence and property, I didn’t even fully comprehend this space was back right here. It was all an overwhelming mess and now it’s one particular of my favourite spaces.
More than the past year we’ve primed and painted the walls and ceiling, painted the concrete floor, ripped out the old sink and cabinet and added in lots of gorgeous, affordable pretties.
One particular more before, due to the fact can you even believe the distinction? This proves that Each and every Space has prospective. Every one particular of them. No space is as well far gone to be lovely, and the most inexpensive item–paint, almost always tends to make the greatest difference.
Let’s speak about some of the largest adjustments.
1. Clean & Paint
When I 1st saw the space, I didn’t even like getting in the room. It was filthy, smelly and dark. All I knew was that it necessary to be disinfected and sealed with some primer and white paint. I didn’t care to make any other plans for the office, all that mattered at 1st was a couple of coats of primer and some white paint.
Right after everything was white and we could in fact see what we have been dealing with, we began arranging the room.
Yes, let’s attempt to function in a tiny kitchen! This kitchen will assist with the barn events we have–so I don’t need a lot of pots and pans, but much more of a spot to heat up and retailer food and drinks and make coffee.
Yes, we can use this as a guest space (we have plans for far more than one twin bed for sleeping) but for now we have a twin.
Yes, this can also be an office for me and serve as the bathroom for the barn!
two. Kitchen Style
We went with Ikea cabinets–we have them in our house kitchen and really like them, they are simple to place collectively and have a 25 year warranty. And those straightforward, sophisticated appliances are from the new GE Artistry Series — Finally there’s an reasonably priced selection for sleek, straightforward style that we don’t have to sell a car to afford.
Let’s face it, the refrigerator steals the show. It’s all vintage meets contemporary meets adorable and it’s only \$1200. I admit I checked craigslist for the previous year browsing for a SMEG refrigerator–it would have been twice the cost and half the size for the very same style. This is a win!
Because this isn’t a typical kitchen that gets employed every day for a household, we didn’t have to fret over the excellent layout. I truly only had two tiny walls to perform in a complete kitchen so I incorporated a wheeled cart that can be rotated when we need to use the dishwasher, or it can be rolled out of the space into the barn if we want to use it as a serving cart.
I’m so happy with my cute tiny kitchen!
It took us about a year to get this tiny space to exactly where it is these days. This kitchen wall offers me great hope for the untouched locations in our residence, the bathrooms, basement, screened in porch…it’s such a excellent reminder to appear back at exactly where a area started and examine it to where it is these days.
