White Cottage Kitchen Renovation Reveal

It’s reveal time for my white cottage kitchen renovation.  All the cottage details you want in a kitchen; white cabinets, open shelving, a custom wood island, and pops of color!

How many emojis can you put in one sentence, because today I am using them all!  It’s the BIG reveal day and I couldn’t be more pleased with how our white cottage kitchen renovation turned out!  It has been a process fraught with delays and complications, but we persevered and I am so happy to share it with you today!  After 5 long months, the last and final pieces were installed this week and we are thrilled with the result.  This kitchen has everything I ever dreamed of for a kitchen space. A combination of gray and white cabinets, a farmhouse sink, open and closed shelving, a custom island, a peninsula, a coffee station, a bar nook, and professional appliances.  Girl!  WE DID IT!  PLUS, it has all the cottage charm and pops of color I need to satisfy my decor-loving heart.

Grab your coffee or favorite after 5 cocktail because this is a LONG post with as many photos as I could pack in!  All the source details are linked at the bottom along with each and every post describing the design process.

Let’s start with the pretty photos!

First, up is our cooking area with this gorgeous Thermador Professional Range top with a griddle!  This is definitely my husband’s favorite feature!  I am really loving the convenience of the pot filler for filling large pots and he loves the griddle for Saturday morning eggs and pancakes!

The open shelving makes it very convenient to grab dishes and glassware when we need it and my kids know exactly where things go when they help unload the dishwasher.

This gorgeous farmhouse sink and faucet from Elkay not only look pretty, but the depth of it hides dirty dishes away until I can get them washed.  Makes me feel like the kitchen is clean even when it might not be!  I’m really glad we decided to go with one large bowl instead of two because it makes it easy to wash large pots and trays.

We went with a double oven combination from Bosch.  The top oven also doubles as a microwave.

You can read all about this custom island and these gorgeous antique brass schoolhouse lights from Barn Light Electric in this POST. I used antique brass accents throughout the space to warm up the cool tones of the stainless steel and white.  It adds not only a pop of color but warms up the room.

Moving around the space, on the exterior wall, we added a hutch in a pop of gray.  I use this to store my green and white dishes that I do not use every day.

In the bay window, we added lots of plants.  Can we stop for a moment and check out these incredible shutters that we had installed by Sunburst Shutters?!  I’m going to do a full post on these next week.  They were the final touch that really brought home the cozy factor and made this kitchen design all come together.  I’m so in love with them!

And for the very first time in my life, I have a walk-in pantry!  Behind that green door is all kinds of shelves for storage.

Having an extra little space as a bridge to the family room, I added a whole peninsula of large deep drawers and cabinets for extra storage and stools for seating.  We use this area constantly for breakfast, snacks, and with the dining room right to the left of it, it’s a perfect place to set up a serving station.

Another favorite little spot is our coffee bar.  Greg and I really enjoy coffee and even whip up our own cappuccinos on the weekend.  This is the Espresso machine we bought at Target and we love it!  I use the top of the hutch to store my glass pitchers and carafes, in the cabinet underneath is extra coffee supplies.

Lastly, facing the family room space is a wine and beverage bar nook.  We used this fun Menza Gray tile from Home Depot and the same open shelving as the kitchen.  Our beverage fridge is stocked full of sodas, juice boxes, and water to grab for movie watching!

  4. Justin says:

    This kitchen is so beautiful! Reminds me of farmhouse to a tee! It’s unbelievably gorgeous! That range hood cover is insanely gorgeous too, and the white and wood accents really make the kitchen feel like home!

  5. Karina says:

    You’re correct! White color is simple yet elegant and stunning. The color combination is perfect! It adds more vibrant to your home. This is an extensive kitchen renovation. Keep it up!

  6. I like how you applied a classic design for the exhaust fan of the stove. I like that it is applied in a smart manner as it is aligned with a white background to stand out. We will need an interior designer to help us in making smartly planned custom kitchen cabinets.

  7. alice says:

    This is a beautiful kitchen and i love the neutral colors you chose because it makes it very easy to decorate and change out decor through the year. Very pretty and I wish I had a double oven again but oh well.

  9. I love you backsplash! Also you the center island is what I am dreaming for. Those shelves were also beautiful. I can now picture out my dream kitchen. I will be starting tomorrow to redesign my kitchen. Wish me luck!

  10. Great looking kitchen renovation. It looks so classy and sophisticated. Really nice. Great job.

  13. […] We did a complete remodel of the kitchen.  We removed all the cabinets and appliances, reworked the space to include open shelving, new appliances, a custom island, coffee bar, and added an additional peninsula space with seating as a breakfast bar.  We painted the whole space Alabaster by Sherwin Williams. Around the corner, we redid the wet bar into a wine and beverage nook.  You can see the full White Cottage Kitchen Renovation Reveal, here (LINK).  […]

  14. Portella says:

    I loved that! Just one quick question – I thought that open shelving results in much dust. Is it so? I didn’t choose it just because of that.

    • Amy says:

      Yes and no. The bottom 2 shelves are things we use all the time so I don’t notice much dust. The top shelf, I do wipe down the items when I use those.

  15. Meghan Jones says:

    Wow, Mindblowing. It’s an excellent kitchen renovation and some outstanding kitchen design guide. This tips will help me which kitchen design would be better for me. I like your great idea. Thanks for sharing this helpful idea.
