Part 1 Kitchen Renovations: New Appliances

Over at Kelly’s Blog she’s doing a weekly post to share different rooms of her house. I know other’s have done the Home Tours post, which I’ve wanted to do. We’ve been in this house 2 years come May 15th and we knew when we bought it there was a lot we wanted to do with the home. It had some updates that we really like and a few additions also. The first thing we knew we would have to conquer was the kitchen since this is important in the Real Estate when preparing the homes. I believe at some point the kitchen was redone, but it’s very 70’s feeling and just ick! Summer 2007, right after we moved in we replaced most of the appliances. Here’s pictures of the original appliances and their replacements.

I think this old oven did a better job of heating the room rather than the food that we put in it! I LOVE my new oven. It’s great not have to bend over to check the food, etc.

1960’s stovetop – All the burners were so crooked and straightening them just made them worse. Everything cooked uneven and I had to worry about stuff boiling over on the one side.

New dishwasher is so quiet and has a timer, which is great. Load the dishwasher after dinner and set it to wash in the middle of the night so they’re clean the next morning!
