Hello, friends! The day is finally here. It’s been almost 6 months since the start of my kitchen remodel, and it’s time for the reveal! I hope you’re as excited as I am!

Now, before we get into it, I need to tell you a few things.

First off, in this post, I’m going to focus on the kitchen. My entryway and powder room were also included in the remodel, but I’ll share those in a future post.

Secondly, the dining room still needs some love. (This room was also altered as part of the kitchen remodel.) I plan to get a new dining room table, chairs, and buffet and also style it. My budget needs time to recover, however, so I will work on the dining room piecemeal as time goes on.

Finally, this is real life. Styling is not 100% complete and things aren’ t exactly the way I’d like them. However, I think the space is beautiful in its current state, and it’s time to share it as is.

If you’re new to IBC and wondering what the kitchen looked like before, check out this post here. I will include a few before and after shots at the end of this post.

Also, I am going to create a short video tour of the space. The video is not included in this post but will be coming soon. (I’m working on a Fall Kitchen Tour with my Seasons of Home Blogger friends next week. I will likely include it there.)

All sources will be linked at the end of this post.

Now with those items out of the way, let me show you around with a slew of images. Then we’ll chat.

I’m in LOVE. It was a long process, but I couldn’t be more pleased with the transformation.

First, let’s talk cabinets. I opted for custom cabinetry. The doors are inset shaker fronts with a little detail to make them a bit more interesting. The doors and drawers are soft close. I adore this feature.

Bayberry Kitchen Remodel Reveal - Kitchen Makeover Kitchen Design #kitchen #makeover #remodel #traditional #modern #country #design #decorating

The cabinets in the kitchen are painted Sherwin-Williams Egret White SW 7570 (Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel – Satin). The cabinets in the pantry are Sherwin-Williams Sage SW 2860 (Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel – Satin).

The cabinet knobs and cabinet pulls are from Rejuvenation. The refrigerator pulls and dishwasher pulls are from Emtek.

There are some fun cabinetry details. Let me show you!

One is this set of doors to the left of the refrigerator. The doors not only open but slide into the cabinet. There is a light built into the shelf that automatically comes on when the doors open. This is where my microwave lives.

There’s also a bifold door to the right of the sink. I haven’t decided what treasures to store in there. Currently, it’s home to my paper towels, some dishes, and my toaster.

With walnut stained interiors, the cabinets were designed to look beautiful whether the doors are open or closed.

Bayberry Kitchen Remodel Reveal - Kitchen Makeover Kitchen Design #kitchen #makeover #remodel #traditional #modern #country #design #decorating

Just below that cabinet is my trash bin which is on a sliding door.

Bayberry Kitchen Remodel Reveal - Kitchen Makeover Kitchen Design #kitchen #makeover #remodel #traditional #modern #country #design #decorating

As you might have noticed, I also opted for a panel front refrigerator and dishwasher. My kitchen isn’t huge, so I didn’t want to break up the cabinetry with appliances. (Read more about the appliances I selected here.)

I chose to have glass front doors in two places. There’s a lower cabinet in the dining room and an upper cabinet on the opposite side of the fridge. I love the tile detail behind this upper cabinet that extends down to the countertops. This tile matches what’s on the opposite side of the room.

The countertops are gorgeous. I went with HanStone Quartz. This particular color is Montauk. (More information on my countertops can be found here.)

Because my kitchen is fairly narrow, a big island wasn’t feasible. Instead, I installed a work table. This pieces was custom built for the kitchen.

Small but mighty, this has already been a handy piece in my kitchen. I did want to note that this piece will change slightly. The top is currently a finished piece of poplar. However, I wanted a walnut butcher block top to make it a bit more functional. The tops will be swapped out soon.

I chose a farmhouse/apron style sink, and I’m in love with it. This particular sink is from Bocchi. The durability of the fireclay is perfect for me. (You can read more about it here.) For my faucet, I selected this unlacquered bridge faucet from Rohl. It might be one of the nicest things I’ve ever owned. I gave it a little polish for the photos, but I plan to let the brass age into a beautiful patina.

The window above the sink was enlarged to allow for more light to enter the kitchen. Previously, there was only a single window; now there are two!

Bayberry Kitchen Remodel Reveal - Kitchen Makeover Kitchen Design #kitchen #makeover #remodel #traditional #modern #country #design #decorating

Above the windows, there are two brass picture lights. I wanted something different from the standard pendant light. There is an identical picture light above the pantry sink.

The workhorse in my kitchen is the Wolf range. This thing is a beast. I’ve done a lot of baking over the past couple of weeks, and it’s been a joy to use this appliance. It’s dual fuel. – The range is gas and the oven is electric. To me, it’s the best of both worlds! Above the range, I have a range hood from Zephyr. I never thought I would get excited about a range hood, but it works beautifully.

In case you missed it, between the sink and the range is the dishwasher.

On the wall behind all of that goodness is floor-to-ceiling subway tile. This was a feature I knew that I wanted in my kitchen, and I’m so pleased with how it turned out. (Additional details on the tile and grout can be found here.)

Before the remodel, the long wall had two doors. (Well, it was one door and one panel that looked like a door but didn’t open.) To make room for the range, the doorway was bricked up and a new Dutch door* went in its place. I’ve long been a fan of Dutch doors, especially when they’re in the kitchen. The dutch door hardware is from Emtek.

And if all of that wasn’t enough, I added a butler’s pantry to my kitchen. This area had been a full bathroom. I decided to remove the full bath and replace it with this butler’s pantry and a small powder room.

I’m so glad I did because this is such a fun space. It might be one of my favorite details of the remodel.

As you can see, it’s mostly used for storage, but it has fun and stylish features as well.

One feature is a built-in coffee maker which freshly grinds beans to make coffee, cappuccinos, lattes, etc.

The cabinet makers even built this adorable shelf so I have a space to be my own barista!

There’s even a sink in this space. This is the round undermount sink from Bocchi along with a matching unlacquered brass faucet from Rohl.

Open shelves provide lots of space to store kitchen goodies and collections. There’s likewise this fabulous drawer for storing cutting boards and baking trays. Love this!

Right now I’m testing out this gallery wall of vintage metal trays. I’ve been collecting them for a few years and thought they’d make a fun art installation.

The walls in the kitchen, pantry, and dining room are painted Sherwin-Williams Snowbound SW 7004 (Emerald Interior – Satin). The trim is Sherwin-Williams Extra White SW 7006 (ProClassic Semi-Gloss) right out of the can.

You’ll notice that the floors in the kitchen are new. As part of this remodel, I chose to have new hardwood floors installed in the kitchen, entryway, pantry, and powder room. They were integrated into the existing hardwood floors in the dining room and living space. Now the first floor is entirely hardwood. They turned out beautifully. The floors are red oak with Bona Dark Walnut stain.

I did want to point out several changes made to the dining room too. The most significant change was the addition of these three windows. This had been a solid wall.

The windows flood the room and the kitchen with light. The sun rises on this side of the house, so the mornings are especially magical.

Bayberry Kitchen Remodel Reveal - Kitchen Makeover Kitchen Design #kitchen #makeover #remodel #traditional #modern #country #design #decorating

I also installed this fabulous chandelier. It’s the Radcliffe 30″ round chandelier from Rejuvenation. It brings in a modern element to the space. I’ve had my eye on it for a while now. I was thrilled to be able to use it in this room.

The French doors are also new. While the size of the doors is the same, the window panes are much larger which allows in even more light.

I now have Phantom Screens on both of these doors and the dutch door. I will be doing a post on them, but they are virtually invisible. They are hands down the best screen doors if you want a seamless look and an unobstructed view.

And there you have it, my friends, Bayberry Kitchen is complete … mostly. Ha!

Before I go I need to give a shoutout to my fabulous designer Katy Popple. (You can read about why I decided to work with a designer here.) The overall design ended up being this beautifully collaborative effort. Katy provided amazing guidance, assistance, and a voice of reason throughout the entire process. I’m so thankful for her great eye and enormous skill set. Thank you, Katy!! If any of you are in Pittsburgh and need a designer, check out her website here. She comes highly recommended.

Avanti Construction was my contractor. I highly recommend them as well if you are in the Pittsburgh area. I will definitely be using them again.

I’m not sharing a full breakdown of the budget for this entire project (or sharing the budget at all.) However. I did want to mention that roughly 93% of the budget came out of my pocket. As a blogger, I have an excellent relationship with many fine brands and several brands offered me products to include in my space. I wasn’t paid to use their products. I chose the brands myself and was honored to include their products.

I’m certain I will do lots of follow-up posts because there is a lot more I want to share about the space and the process. Stay tuned for those. Also, if you have questions, please leave them in the comments below, and I’ll do my best to answer them there or create a follow-up post with more details.

Finally, thanks to all of you for joining me on this fun (perhaps once-in-a-lifetime) journey. It was a joy to take you along on the adventure. As I said, there will be several follow-up posts and, of course, a look into my new powder room and updated entryway will be coming soon!

Until then, I hope you enjoy seeing my remodeled space and creating your own happy place!

        Instead of changing them out paint them the color of your pantry cabinets. Would allow your budget to rebuild. I think that could add some major impact. You did a spectacular job designing your new kitchen and pantry.

          I thought about painting the chairs at least for some color. We’ll see!

    This is absolutely beautiful, Michael. I know it was hard to live through, but hopefully those are distant memories now. I have to agree…your butler’s pantry is the the star of the show. I am trying to figure out how I can swing that in my tiny kitchen. Enjoy your new rooms!!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      They are distant memories. Now all I can think about is baking!! Thank you!!

    Michael, you have done it again. No matter what or where the space – your talent takes over and you make the place wonderful. I have seen you work your magic in 3 homes now – and the great results keep on coming. I bet if you landed on a deserted island – you would make that incredible too!!!! Be proud of your talent. It always shines and we LOVE watching it.

  • Phyllis at

    Wow, just wow! I’ve been anticipating this reveal since you mentioned you had started the kitchen. Your choices reflect your style and are timeless. I’m hoping to do a reno on our home as well and would love if you could share a drawing that reflects the sizes of the rooms. It’s hard to know if something will fit unless I can see how much space you started with and especially the space you allowed for in the center of the kitchen. This is at the top of my favorite kitchens on Pinterest and I will be stealing as many of your ideas as I can. I hope you will reconsider and post some ballpark costs, especially for the design service and things that were unexpected. The custom cabinetry looks extremely well done…I just cannot get enough of this space. Looking forward to the posts on the adjoining rooms.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Phyllis, Thank you so very much. Back when I shared the design plan, I gave layouts of the space that have measurements. Those layouts are the most specific things I could share. If you click on the plan images it will make them larger. (You may have to do a little math.)

      In case you missed that, you can find the post here: https://inspiredbycharm.com/kitchen-design-for-bayberry-house/

  • Maria Oxender at

    Michael, the kitchen is perfection down to the very last detail! I love everything about it. I was wondering about the source for two different items…where did you get the little stainless steel pitcher next to the stove (is it for oil?) and the basket under the work table?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Oh yes! I should have sourced those. The pitcher is for oil. It’s from Schoolhouse. The basket was a find from a local store. It may be vintage. I don’t really have a source for that. Sorry!

    Stunning! I’m not typically a fan of predominately white rooms, but I LOVE this, especially with the darker grout and black hardware. I’ve been following along on your kitchen adventure since the start. Congratulations and enjoy it! And just in time for baking season!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      I feel you. I went back and forth on this, but knowing how I like to change things for the season and needing a neutral backdrop for the blog, it just made sense. Tha’st why I added as many unique details and moments of texture as I could. The dining room walls may get some color down the road, but I’m still deciding.

    Michael it is truly breathtaking. I do have a question for you did you make a pop-up shelf for your stand mixer that is the one thing that I wish I would’ve had room to do in my kitchen even though it takes up a lot of space. It looks like your flour and sugar are in your pantry Are you going to have to take them in to your kitchen every time you bake? You are a better man than I am woman.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Mary, The pop up mixer is a great feature. However, I didn’t really have the space for it. Like you said it takes up a lot of room and I don’t mind moving my mixer around. And my pantry is steps from the kitchen. Grabbing the flour and sugar from the pantry just takes a couple steps. No biggie! 🙂

  • Barbara at

    Your kitchen remodel is just stunning! I did have one little question though. How did you hang that picture on your tile back splash? I have the same tile for my kitchen backsplash and wanted to hang a picture too, but was concerned about it coming loose and then damaging our countertop.Did you use command strips or ?? Thanks!!!!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      I used a small command hook. But that ended up falling down. Thankfully the glass didn’t break. So now I used a hook at the top and a large command strip at the bottom. It seems very secure. I honestly don’t trust the command strips with important things. They always seem to fall at some point. I’m thinking the combo of the two should work really well. The picture is pretty light.

      The metal trays are also hung with command strips, but I’m not concerned if they fall.

  • Lyn at

    Absolutely perfection. I just returned from 2 weeks in Italy to face over 350 e-mails! Unreal! When I quickly scrolled down yours was one of the first I opened. Some of the things I love are first of all the use of a different piece of furniture for your island. Also, I love the glass doors on the cabinetry that display some lovely items. I will take more time in the days ahead to really enjoy this post. We are downsizing in the next year, and I was thinking of a way to keep some memorable pieces from my grandmother, Mom and Mother-in-law. The pieces vary from silver cream & sugar, silver water pitcher, etc. We also want to display some of our wedding china in the cabinet. I want to also have some glass shelves and light the interior of the cabinet. Your kitchen design is the ultimate in how to incorporate everything we foodies/home bodies need in a compact space. I hope our townhouse kitchen turns out half as well as this.

Quaint, cozy, and the cabinets and Butler’s Pantry are devine! When I left Boston to move to Arizona, I was living in a house that was built in 1793 by a sea captian, Moses Endicott. I always dreamed of redesigning the home, but I didn’t own it. This is the kitchen I would have put in, and the entire wall of windows overlooked the river. You never know, someday, I may be able to own that dream home and bring it back to the past and into the future. I truly enjoy watching your adventures. Congratulations, Michael!

    I just happened to stumble upon your blog (Pinterest rabbit hole…) and my jaw dropped. Your kitchen is STUNNING. So stunning that I had to leave a comment, not just lurk. Wow. Well done!

    I’ve seen the sneak pics on Insta and finally checked out the whole post, on giant work computer screens because…wowza! So beautiful – I just want to come visit and bake up something pumpkin with you…and pull one of those muffin tins out of that amazing slider drawer with the vertical dividers…mind blown. All of the details (inside of the cabinets being walnut) are so special. OK – going to go back and drool over the photos some more!

    Also random question – can you fit all of your serving pieces, glasses, etc. within the kitchen/pantry? I am a “collector” of all things entertainment, some people might call it a problem, but always love to see how other people have theirs organized behind closed doors!

      Caitlin, Thank you so much for your beautiful comment. I have a lot of pieces too. I blame being a blogger for needing them all. Most of my things I’ve been able to fit within the kitchen and pantry. I do have some larger / heavier / bulkier items that I don’t use as often in the basement. (Which is just down the stairs in the kitchen.) Everything is really handy.

      xo Michael
