Construction is well on its way in all corners of the rental property – from stripping wallpaper in each of the eight rooms and hallways, demoing the waterlogged walls in the basement, interior waterproofing and most notably, rehabbing the kitchen!
Our plans for the kitchen are as follows:
- Update flooring in the kitchen and hallway with either tile or luxury vinyl tile
- Put in new granite countertops and backsplash
- Install new cabinet hardware (nobs and pulls)
- Replace light figures (there’s a ceiling fan in the kitchen!)
To keep within budget, my wife and I decided to keep the existing cabinets. While we originally wanted to replace them, the cabinets are in tremendous shape and are only a few years old. We’re optimistic that new flooring, cabinet hardware,backsplash and colorful granite will be sufficient to give this kitchen the updated look it deserves.
We just wrapped up demoing the existing square white (beige?) tile backsplash and removing the old countertops. Next step is to install drywall and select our finished – the fun part! We’ll be sure to keep you in the loop!
