It’s so exciting seeing your new kitchen emerge from the reno. We just reno’d our whole condo and the kitchen is my favorite.

@housebee:  Hey, thanks for posting that!  It looks great and I’m really digging the range hood! What are you doing for countertops?  Are you going with the wooden ones from Ikea?

We’re thinking about doing an Ikea kitchen when we remodel ours so please keep posting with info!

So depressed over here because my kitchen looks way worse than your *old* kitchen and all I’m planning to do after appliances is paint everything and replace the countertops. 

Love the new look though – totally jealous of your hood!

Is there a reason you didn’t do the floors while the cabinets were out/off the floor? It seems like that would be the best time to do it? Cabinets look great, BTW – my aunt has had her IKEA kitchen for almost 20 years and it is holding up wonderfully!

My dad’s house has ikea cabinets and they are pretty darn outstanding.  He installed all of them with the help of my very handy sister.  She has the patience required to put them all together and he hung them LOL.  Anyways, that was several years ago……probably close to 8 years now.  They still look great.  Did you get the cabinets that close softly?  Those are awesome (my dad’s house has ones down low where he puts pots/pans).  I actually didn’t mind your kitchen before really.  I probably would have painted them white if they could have been painted, and added hardware but I like the new ones too!  Congrats on the progress.
