It’s reveal week for the One Room Challenge! If you want to check out any of the other transformations definitely head over to  One Room Challenge page to see the amazing other spaces! It has been the final crunch like in those design makeover shows! Monday counters were installed and cabinet doors, panels etc were delivered. Upper Cabinet hung, doors and panels installed, water hooked up, tiles installed. It feels like we really accomplished a lot. It was such a great feeling when the water was hooked up because we could finally wash dishes again. The kitchen area is my favourite little moment in the kitchen, it is beautiful! I am so glad I installed Ikea cabinets and got custom doors and panels through AllStyle Retrofit, I loved partnering with them for this project and can’t wait to use them in clients homes in the future. Also, the counters!! Another partner for this reno was Hanstone Quartz, and the counters make the space, especially the apron front on the sink that I had done. If you want this for your own kitchen, they can definitely do it for you!

Honestly, there is still a little bit to do but I am so proud of how it came together this week and how it is looking. I promise I will come back and update this post when the final little details are finished. The banquette is still a little problematic with sizing but that will be fixed soon, and I styled it for the photos! Once I fix that, I will install shiplap along that back wall and hang up the wall sconce and some art!

A little reminder of the moodboard and renderings! It is pretty close! I swapped out the tile for something else, and I am much happier that I did that, the rest stayed pretty similar!



I hope you enjoyed following along as I participated in the One Room Challenge. It was definitely a challenge and I learned so much! Of course I will be posting updates as I finish off little bits and pieces. Don’t forget to follow on Instagram and Youtube to stay up to date will this project and future ones!

    It’s an amazing transformation and I love how you took the cabinets all the way to the ceiling. Can’t wait to see how the banquet turns out!

    Thank you so much. The cabinets to the ceiling was so important to me even though some disagree with it. I have 10′ ceilings and it is such a shame to waste that space!
