This kitchen was done on a budget, but didn’t it turn out wonderful? It looks completely custom done, but here’s the million dollar secret: it’s IKEA. IKEA is obviously known for its Norwegian looks – very streamline, but the Brubaker’s changed that look with some molding and a couple of custom add ons from Home Depot. The glass pane cabinets, pictured at the top, was too narrow for ordinary cabinets. The clever innkeepers of the Connecticut River Valley Inn took cupboards and put them on the bottom to keep the door going into the dining room.
This pantry is also to die for. As someone who just lives in a home, I’m not sure I would like the refrigerator, microwave and toaster separated from the stove and oven, but for a B&B, I think that this setup has to be close to perfect because it eliminates clutter in case there is a function. The first renovation that they did to the house was to put up this chandelier, “because ever panty needs a chandelier!”
