Our historic home in Sherman Hill was built in 1880 and came equipped with a 5 by 5’ kitchen —teeny tiny. At some point the main kitchen was located outside the home which is now our neighbor’s garage about 20 yards away. The internal “prep” kitchen was virtually left untouched besides some cosmetics for the past 139 years so it was time for a big change.
We removed the built-in hutch, removed the wall, moved the back door over a few inches (every inch counted in this small space), moved plumbing, added can lights, new cabinetry, flooring and appliances. It’s still small but way more functional with the peninsula.
The original kitchen was so small it made it tough to even get before photos but check out what I got below. Shopping list provided below as well. Enjoy :)
