Remodeling a kitchen can be quite an undertaking. There were a lot of changes we wanted to make, but we also wanted to keep our kitchen remodel as simple as possible.
Most of our remodel was cosmetic, so there wasn’t too much to tear out.
Our Kitchen Remodel Objectives
Here’s a breakdown of our kitchen remodel:
- Uninstall a cooktop and replace it with a stainless steel gas cooktop/range.
- Upgrade our old fridge to a new, stainless steel model.
- Reface all cabinet doors and drawer fronts.
- Install a small cabinet space in-between a wall and the new range.
- Install a few shelves where the wall oven used to sit.
- Remove a cabinet above the fridge.
- Repair some cracked cabinet doors.
- Install new hardware for the cabinet doors and drawers.
- Paint the walls and cabinets.
- Install a tile backsplash.
In the future, we plan to replace the ceiling lights, flooring, and countertop.

New Gas Cooktop/Range
Most of the demo work in our kitchen involved taking out the existing cooktop, tearing out the cabinet that housed it, and replacing it with a gas cooktop/range.

Refacing the Cabinets and Drawers
Changing the look of our cabinet doors and drawers was a long process, but nothing about it was difficult.

Installing The New Backsplash
For this project, I chose Peel and Stick Backsplash Tiles from Aspect, and they turned out great! Click here to see the full article on our backsplash installation.
Next up for our Kitchen Remodel
So this was a basic kitchen remodel. As I mentioned, in the future, we’ll take on the more involved projects like the ceiling lights, flooring, and countertops. We have only begun to deliberate on the options available to us.
For now, we’ll take a rest and enjoy our new-looking kitchen!
