Kristen and her husband bought a 1960’s brick rancher that they had been slowly revamping on a budget. The original kitchen was cramped and featured a super awkward layout — think dishwasher on the non-kitchen side of the peninsula! They purchased their cabinets, countertops, cabinet doors, drawer fronts, hardware, sink, faucet, garbage disposal, free-standing island, pendant light over the sink, and brackets for their open shelves at Ikea. They loved that Ikea offered fun bonuses like multiple options for interior organizers, soft-close hardware and easy-to-remove snap-on door hinges, which saved them a ton of time during the renovation process.
