Kitchen Makeover Day 2: My Cabinetry

Yesterday, I shared photos of my brand-spanking-new kitchen. Today let me tell you about the cabinetry.

This whole remodel endeavor started with a need for new kitchen cabinetry. I had old peeling laminated cabinetry, with very few interior storage solutions. When you opened the cabinets you would see clutter.

Then more clutter.

Not because I’m particularly messy, but because all I had inside my cabinets were big empty spaces, for things to pile up and fall over.

I’ve mentioned before, I would always walk through the Lowes Project Design Center and eye the Shenandoah Cabinetry display. So when it was time to start the remodel process, I knew exactly the brand of cabinets I wanted in my kitchen.

With your help, we decided on linen maple cabinets in the transitional “Misson” style, because we felt they would give our kitchen a sleek look, yet would work well in our older home. But choosing the style and color was just the tip of the iceburg.

Although I love the way my new cabinets look, the storage options you can place inside your Shenandoah Cabinets are what I find really spectacular.

Let me show you.

By the way, showing the inside of your kitchen cabinets feels a little like showing the inside of your underwear drawer.

I’m feeling a little exposed so bear with me…

It’s so easy to find things now, without digging around. I feel like my baking stones and dishes are safe, and I’m no longer worried about them falling and getting cracked. The kids have their own space for snacks and kiddie dishes, so they don’t have to climb on the counter tops to reach things.

These elements have revolutionized my little world.

Thank you Shenandoah for all you’ve done in my beautiful new kitchen.

It is a dream come true!

  8. Really lovely! We just redid our kitchen an the design with the pantry and fridge location are very similar. How do you keep your pantry doors from smacking into the fridge? I’m concerned about long term damage to the pantry doors as well as the refrigerator.

  28. I just got the exact same cabinets, getting installed today. They are gorgeous.

    I have a question about the finish – on the face of the doors, the vertical joints are visible on some doors, almost like they are slightly cracked or the paint didn’t fill in, but on others they’re perfectly smooth and invisible. Did you have that on yours? I’m wondering if this is just part of the deal with these cabinets (about 2/3 of the joints are like this), or if I should be asking for replacement doors. My contractor thinks this is not right.

    Valentina, I have the double wastebasket pull out cabinet too – mine is 18 inches wide, and the wastebasket bins came with it – they are Rev a Shelf RV-35 (35 quart).

  33. Your kitchen turned out beautifully! We just had these exact cabinets installed and I’ve got a question for you. Right now, I’m treating them with kid gloves. They are so pristine and beautiful. I’m kind of nervous about them getting dinged or the finished getting damaged. Are yours holding up okay? I’m hoping they are more durable than I’m giving them credit for. I figured since you’ve had them for awhile now, you’ll have some good advice for me. Again, your home is just fabulous!


    • Hi Kathy, they are holding up great for me! No visible wear that I can see. I also love the knowledge that if something does get damaged, Shenandoah replaces it. :)

      • That IS reassuring! I don’t think our sales person mentioned this to us. They replace them for free? Anyways, thank you so much for info. In a week or so when our kitchen is back up and running, I can’t wait to re-visit your site and try some of yours recipes. I miss cooking & meal planning so much (never thought I’d hear myself say that!!)

  35. What is the name of the color paint? Beautiful Kitchen!!!

  36. So, did you have any trouble with these? My cabinets came last week and were installed over the weekend. I got the EXACT same cabinets as you. 3 doors need to be replaced, which is a bummer. One has a crack and the other two were had finish damage. Other than that, I am very happy with my purchase.

  37. “showing the inside of your kitchen cabinets feels a little like showing the inside of your underwear drawer.” Truer words have never been spoken! And don’t even ask to go through my veggie crisper drawer of my fridge!

    I am greener than my Big Green Egg with envy, LOVE LOVE LOVE your new kitchen.

  38. Oh Sommer, I am in love with how your kitchen turned out. IN! LOVE! And I’m so glad you went with the white cabinets. It makes your kitchen look so bright and spacious. And now I’m going to spend the next 2 hours researching how to paint my cabinets white. :D

  39. Love, love, love all the pull-outs – I have a couple, but w/an 8×10 kitchen no room for some of the wonderful ones you have! Congrats!

  40. Beautiful!!! I love all the pull out drawers everywhere!

  41. So beautiful Sommer!! I really love all the pull outs, that is something I desperately need i my kitchen.

  42. Gorgeous. I love the pantry shelves. I’ve been trying to decide (wishful planning?) for when we remodel because I don’t have a pantry at this point and will end up with large cupboards as a replacement. I love what you ended up with, and they look amazing.

  43. Beautiful! I am also putting in Shenandoah Cabinets, and they are spectacular! I have some of the same pieces you have. I can’t wait for mine to be finished!

  53. Man, Sommer! It’s all so functional! Maybe I can talk my husband into moving into a fixer-upper and doing a kitchen remodel again. I would use your kitchen as my inspiration kitchen. I love it so much!

  54. Soooo gorgeous! Love the pull out shelves.

  55. These are the exact cabinets I just bought. I’m waiting for them to be delivered to the store on May 1st! I can’t wait to install them in my new house. Your kitchen looks awesome!!!!
