Remodeled Kitchen with Unique Granite Table

Our 20+ year old builder grade kitchen was looking a little tired so we took the plunge and remodeled it. One unique feature I do not see too often is the granite table attached to the center island. The table is 54” round and seats 6 comfortably or 8 tight. We were a little nervous about the table concept but have been quite pleased with it, very functional. The area to the left was originally a small walled in laundry room which I blew out and replaced with a wet bar\butler pantry type area.

The second pic shows across from the wet bar area which was also part of the old laundry room. We cut a new door through (2×6 bearing wall) to the dining room. Had to relocate a cold air return to cut the door through, never fun, but well worth it. I struggled with how to handle the corner and the large corner pantry made sense, the fridge and stacked, full size washer/dryer then fell right into place, in fact I did not even have to relocate the original laundry’s gas line and outside exhaust vent line if you can believe that. My Dad and I redrew this area 10 times before we felt we got it just right.

Third pic is just another angle of the main kitchen from the wet bar/laundry area. Rewired, redrywalled, all new windows and doors throughout . Cabinets are cherry, floor is Oak. A little disapointed with the oak floor but it matched the rest of the house and was budget friendly, the rest of the kitchen was not:)

-- DONE is a "four letter word" at our house, we don't say it often.

Sweet! Cabinets and counter tops are beautiful.

Did you build the cabinets? They look great.

Nice. Everything goes together so well. I really like how the recessed lighting hits the cabinet’s. That’s a hecka of a table.

Great job. My remodel is posted, but she is thinking I need to make changes and put the island back in. Maybe I’ll try the table idea out myself.
