We commend Greg and Ashley Brown of 7th House on the Left blog — their gut renovation of their Hanover, Virginia kitchen was a huge undertaking. And the results are amazing…



We really like the modern meets industrial look of the Industrial Pendant in Glass. It’s so simple and sleek and the darker hardware really helps it stand out against the white subway tile and cabinetry in our renovated kitchen. We love how it makes a statement without taking up too much visual space.



The Rustic Counter Stools are the perfect touch of warmth the kitchen needed. The dark metal legs tie in with the oil rubbed bronze hardware throughout the kitchen and helps make the whole look come together. We love the clean simple lines paired with the wood tones — a great example of “Modern Rustic”.


Not only is the transformation inspiring — Greg and Ashley blogged the entire process — from choosing counter stools to hanging artwork on tile — they cover it ALL. Find all their resources, advice, budget (and missteps!) of their kitchen overhaul in their post, Everything You Might Want to Know.

holy wow! amazing transformation. absolutely love the white – esp the breakfast bar area. those barstools finish it off perfectly and bring a nice warmth to the space.

It looks fantastic!!

The Idea of swapping the light floors and dark cabinets and putting in hardwood floors and light cabinets and walls makes the room look bigger and compliments the room so much more and hardwood is the way so many people want to go these days. great job. oh and the subway tile on the walls perfect. MUCH LOVE!!

gorgeous!! what a beautiful makeover! I wish I could rip out my crap rental kitchen 🙂


February 21, 2013

Im curious- were the cabinets replaced or refaced? I do love the bar area and stools also. ANd- approx what was the cost?


February 21, 2013

Beautiful transformation. I love the subway tile especially.

Looks like a kitchen in a sanitarium
Like the cabinets & sink…..but stainless steel (hard to take care of) and mono-tones are out.

Thanks so much, everyone! To answer your questions… The entire kitchen renovation totaled to approximately $28-$30k – lower than the average kitchen gut-job renovation in our area. This price includes everything from outlet covers and flooring to appliances and cabinets. The cabinets themselves (including installation) took up around $17,000 of that final number, the countertops came in at $3,985, and all of the tile (including labor) came in at $1,000 even. As for the prices of the other details in the kitchen, you can get an idea of the pricing from the links we included in this post:

Hope that helps!

It’s gorgeous! What type of surface are the countertops? I love their simplicity.


February 21, 2013

Love it. We are doing something similar with my kitchen. It will look great with my collection of Fiesta dinnerware!


February 21, 2013

complete transformation!

This is beautiful. We are beginning the process of our own kitchen remodel. Even more excited!


February 23, 2013

I love the crisp, clean look of your remodeled kitchen! I did a gut reno on my really small NYC studio apartment kitchen and so I know how involved the process is. Although my choice was a warm wood tone (like your breakfast bar stool), I am rapidly becoming a fan of the light, bright, white kitchen cabinetry. I blame it on Pinterest and so many well done renovations like yours! I’m a design fan and I’ll be checking out your blog.


February 23, 2013

This is amazing! I have dreamed about white tile with black grout for so long now. I have been trying to convince my husband how nice it looks. This is the perfect way to convince my husband that I wasn’t crazy 😉 It is so vintage looking, yet clean and modern at the same time. Great job – it looks amazing!


February 23, 2013

It’s just not my taste at all. You did an amazing job, it just wouldn’t be for me.


February 24, 2013

Wow this is beautiful!!!!! Love walls 🙂 Nicely done guys!


February 24, 2013

I liked it better before.


February 26, 2013

Love it! Very similar to what I want to do with our kitchen. Thanks for sharing…great inspiration for me to get going on our project.


February 27, 2013

Did you use pre-fabricated cabinets to build the shelf/bar area? Would you be willing to share the dimensions and source? Such a fantastic idea!


February 27, 2013

It looks good. But you can do a lot if you have a big budget.

What did you use for counter? What material?

I can’t say how much I love this transformation!!! One day I’ll be the proud owner of an all-white kitchen. 🙂

I love the before and after shots of your remodel! It’s amazing what you guys did I am so jealous! Great job! I also love the dining area it’s so fresh and organized! My husband and I are comtemplating a kitchen remodel also, so thanks for the inspiration!

Wow! This kitchen is absolutely gorgeous! I love how open this space looks. When I remodeled my kitchen I used this measurement guide: It was SO helpful and it saved so much time.

We bought our 1984 house 18 months ago and it had a TON of honey oak cabinets everywhere. After about 6 months I couldn’t take it anymore and decided to paint all the honey oak in the kitchen-greatroom.

I just bought and received the same industrial pendant from west elm. I was really surprised by the size of it ( it is much larger than I thought it was- looks smaller in the pictures). How do you feel about the size?
