SAS Day and a Dreamy Kitchen

by Chris on April 15, 2011

I pretty much fell on this kitchen remodel tonight, and it just had to be shared. It moved me, simply put. See the befores…

Are you prepared for the after?  Yeah well, I wasn’t so I had to check. Here you go.

white kitchen

There’s a couple of reasons I’m so madly in love. #1. The white. You know how much I love white. #2. It actually looks like a realistic home. I’ve never been so in love with a home that had such a great kitchen without 14-foot ceilings and a whole wall full of windows.

It’s such a magazine-worthy kitchen without looking like it has to be in a magazine-size space. I LOVE that. I want to ask…do you think these are 8 or 9 foot ceilings? They’ve gotta be 9, right? Please tell me they’re 8. :)

If you’d like to see more, go visit Jenny Springer Photography. As you can see, she’s basically a photography blog, but she does offer a few design posts–this one being one of them.

Okay! Let’s see what everyone’s been up to! As you can see, I’ve been very busy checking out other people’s homes. Shocker, I know.

Thanks for the linky-uppy! That kitchen is unbelievable! How is that even in the same house? I love it. So much. I'm going to stare at it some more now…..

Based on the top of the fridge it is 8' tall ceilings. Most built-in fridges are 7' tall, then the cornice they used looks to be about a 3-4"…so from my professional opinion I am saying 8…but I have been wrong before, just don't tell my husband!!!

OH!!! The Kitchen is FABULOUS!!!! Thanks so much for hosting! :)

Leanne April 15, 2011 at 4:47 am

Oh my goodness, that kitchen is gorgeous! Thanks for hosting again.

Amy April 15, 2011 at 4:47 am

I would say 8 foot also. If you look at the door in the picure, there isn't a lot of space above it before the ceiling,and most interior doors aren't quite seven feet in height…

So you might be in luck!!

Anna @ Take the Side Street April 15, 2011 at 4:53 am

Love love love that kitchen. And I'm voting for 8-ft ceilings too, the doorway looks just like the ones in my (less cute) house ;)

Kristen April 15, 2011 at 5:12 am

That kitchen is gorgeous!! Hard to believe it's the same space! I hope she is giving herself a big pat on the back for that!!

WOW that kitchen is UNBELIEVABLE!!! Thanks for sharing (and hosting)!

Southern Gal April 15, 2011 at 10:56 am

Wow. Gives me hope. The ceilings are 8 ft. Look at the space above the doors and windows. Definitely 8.

Kelli @ RTSM April 15, 2011 at 11:31 am

That kitchen is amazing! I love how clean all the white looks!
Thanks for hosting each week Chris!

Emily@remodelingthislife April 15, 2011 at 11:51 am

That made me drool a little bit, I wont lie.

Hope you're having a great Friday! It's alllllmost spring here.. :)


Krystal {Blue Ribbon} April 15, 2011 at 3:13 pm

I design houses (plans!) for a living, so I can tell you that it looks like 8ft ceilings. Windows are typically at 7'-0", and it only looks like there's about a foot above to the ceiling

Last Minute Mel April 15, 2011 at 3:27 pm

Wow, that really is an inspirational remodel…amazing….LOVE the white. Thanks for the inspiration :)

Wendy @ Ramblings from the Sunshine State April 15, 2011 at 3:51 pm

We had 9-12 foot ceilings in our first house. Never realized how much I loved it until I moved into a house full of 8 foot.

Thanks for hosting!

AllieMakes! April 15, 2011 at 4:13 pm

Thanks for hosting! Can't wait to visit the other links!

kayla April 15, 2011 at 4:15 pm

I had to do a double take of that kitchen, I didn't think it was the same house! Gorgeous!

Elizabeth (Blue Clear Sky) April 15, 2011 at 4:34 pm

I am in LOVE! Gorgeous and you are so right that it is achievable in a medium sized space. I'm guessing the ceilings are 8 feet, look at the door frame in the far left of the after, or in the before. They look like standard height doors. Thanks so much for sharing.

Carmie of the Single Nester April 15, 2011 at 4:56 pm

What an incredible before and after.

Kaye April 15, 2011 at 5:01 pm

Totally 8' ceilings; there's nothing over-sized/taller than a normal kitchen. WOW, what a kitchen!!! Makes me want to paint mine white!

Thanks for the eye candy!

jessicab April 15, 2011 at 5:45 pm

Yep! That is a gorgeous kitchen!! Thanks for hosting!

Patricia Torres April 15, 2011 at 6:45 pm

Truly unbelievable project.. The kitchen is gorgeous!! Thanks for hosting.. this awesome party! I've linked in again this week :-)

Shelley April 15, 2011 at 7:24 pm

What a jaw dropper kitchen!!! Really makes me want open shelving!

Gloria Fox @ Potentially Beautiful April 15, 2011 at 8:22 pm

That kitchen is fabulous! I love the open shelving and they really didn't lose any storage with that huge island and all that cabinets underneath. I agree that the ceilings are 8' looking at the door to the left. Amazing difference.

Lisa April 16, 2011 at 3:42 pm

The room is 8ft. based on the door. doors are 7' and there is about a foot above it to the ceiling. :)

Jenn S. April 17, 2011 at 4:39 pm

Man, I love your blog. The things you do and feature go so well with what I love to see.

We have a very small area for our future kitchen. That considered I have decided white is the way to go. I first wanted black counters and stainless steel, but I thought the fewer breaks in color, the bigger and more spacious it would look. I had already gotten used to the idea of white appliances, but after seeing these pics…gorgeous!

Talk to ya later! and thanks for all the inspiration.

Maura April 18, 2011 at 12:26 am

Oh, beautiful! I say 8 ft, too, judging from the counter height in front of the window. Standard base cabinet height is 3 ft, and you wouldn't be able to stack two more in the space above.

Thanks for hosting this party;)
Lovely greetings…

Jenny Springer June 22, 2011 at 2:33 pm

HELLO! Thank you so much for featuring my kitchen on your blog! I just saw it last night (?!). I’m so flattered. I am a photographer but also have a huge passion for design and crafty projects. I L-O-V-E your blog and am now going to be reading it all day :-) Oh, and yes our lovely little ranch house has 8′ ceilings! I really like 9 or 10′ so was really worried if it would bother me but with everything white and open I don’t notice at all. Have a great day! ~jen

Amanda August 10, 2011 at 8:56 pm

I am in love!!!! I have happened upon your blog and I can’t put my laptop down. (seriously, and I have a 2 year old!) I am so inspired! I too love to house stalk online. :) It is the most free fun I have. Thanks so much for sharing all your fab finds. :)

Chris August 10, 2011 at 9:20 pm

What a great comment, Amanda! Thank you for making me smile so much that my husband looked over and said, “Why are you smiling so much?” :) I’m glad I could keep you from tending to your two year old! :) Thanks so much for the encouragement.
