Given the considerable expense a good kitchen renovation can run, we
descided to wait until after condo conversion to do a real kitchen
renovation. Unfortunately, kitchens are hard spaces to avoid!
Although the kitchen desperately requires a reconfiguration of
and appliances to be truly user-friendly, at this time we're opting to
only take on finishing the trim work and some other minor carpentry work
(baseboards, etc), new light fixtures, and warm up the room with a new
paint job. We hope bringing the room in line with the color palate of the
rest of the house will make a huge difference.
(The picture below was taken when the previous owners lived in the
flat - it a lovely big room, but we hated the colors).
