Woohoo we’ve made it through the kitchen remodel; the kitchen is finished! In case you forgot, here is kitchen remodel PART 1 and PART 2 . But before we dive into the pictures of the finished kitchen, let us pick up where we left off.
There were only minor things left for us to do such as touching up holes in the crown moldings, adding the chandeliers, painting the walls, giving the kitchen a good wipe down and so on!
Drilling in for the knobs was easier than we thought, but definitely time-consuming. I am very happy with the result of adding the knobs and it really adds a nice pop to the cabinets. We went with an oil rubbed bronze finish for our knobs and kitchen faucet.

We also had to trim out the other window in the kitchen, and whoops, we bought the wrong trim because it was slightly smaller than the one on the other kitchen window, but since they aren’t directly next to each other, I said it was fine. You wouldn’t even notice if I hadn’t told you; did I just tell you?! Anyways, I was just ready to be DONE with this kitchen.

Next we had to fix a minor hiccup ( my fault ) with the kitchen window by the sink. In the midst of all the craziness during the initial kitchen remodel when my brother-in-law was here, I apparently was scatterbrain. My brother-in-law asked me if I wanted the subway tile back-splash all the way up to the window, which I replied ” yes of course “, thinking he was talking about bringing the back-splash past the window and up the ceiling. Well I miss-understood and he thought I DIDN’T want a window trim piece on the bottom of the window, but wanted the back-splash up to the window. So I was left with a half trimmed window, that really bothered me. Once again, my fault, but we needed to fix it, or at least try! We ended up making a larger window ledge and boxing it in with some nice trimmed edges to give it a more finished look.

There were so many little details that went into this kitchen remodel. We had to rewire for the stove, move a wall heater, add new electrical outlets to the walls and the island and plumb in the water line for the refrigerator. A few more things to show you before the final reveal.
The Kitchen Details
We bought our cabinets, knobs, sink and granite from YES Cabinet and Granite. Thank you Johnny Lee!
The cabinets are all equipped with soft close drawers and doors
The drawers are all fully extendable, which means more storage room way in the back
The brand of cabinets are ProCraft
I made sure there were enough deep drawers for storing my pots and pans
For more storage we added a lazy Susan for misc big bowls and a corner cabinet which now holds all of my mason jars!
We Made sure to have the Spice Rack Drawer by the stove for easy accessibility when cooking; which I still have yet to fill with all of my spices
I really, really wanted a trash can drawer, so we put one on the island. But now I am actually using it for my potatoes and onions instead
We added two outlets with usb ports on them. One on the kitchen island and one on the back splash by the stove.
The Appliances we bought are from Home Depot ( black friday special ) and are LG brand
The dishwasher is all touch screen. Fancy Shmancy!
Ultimately it was the refrigerator that sold me on the LG brand
The refrigerator has a button on the door that you push to open up half of the door ( to easily get to your condiments and such )
Then if you open the door without pushing the button in, it opens the entire side of the refrigerator
Kitchen Faucet is Moen brand
We also added under cabinet lighting, which I love!
Let me introduce you to the new kitchen on The Inspired Prairie!
BAM! What do you think?!
How about one last before and after?
Up next… kitchen decor post. I have some really cute ideas for decorating my kitchen and plan on getting onto that next week. Also, I will have our master bathroom post up soon as well!
