KitchenAid Renovation: Before & After

We recently finished building our house and today we are excited to share our favorite part of our new home: our KitchenAid kitchen. The building process was long and sometimes stressful, but we are beyond thrilled with the end results. We designed the home around our kitchen because we love cooking, baking, and entertaining. The kitchen is the heart of our home and we know we will be spending most of our time here.

We hope you enjoy a little sneak peak into our kitchen.

Our dream kitchen is complete! Our kitchen includes this beautiful KitchenAid® Built-In French Door Refrigerator, Double Wall Oven, and Warming Drawer. The KitchenAid® Gas Rangetop is at the back center of our kitchen. We also have a KitchenAid® Built-In Bottom Mount Refrigerator and a Custom Hood Liner. I absolutely LOVE the sophisticated look that these stainless steel and panel-ready appliances provide in this space. Each and every appliance works just as beautifully as it looks!

We’ve turned this little kitchen nook into a baker’s corner; the open shelving houses decorative pie plates and fun cookbooks and the extra countertop space displays our baking necessities – which, of course, includes the KitchenAid® Stand Mixer.

Here is the view looking towards the great room. Josh is excited he can load the KitchenAid® Dishwashers (yes, we have more than one Dishwasher) while he watches sports.

Here is our second island with a KitchenAid® Ice Maker and Built-In Microwave. We also have a KitchenAid® Undercounter Refrigerator, making this second island the perfect entertaining prep space for hosting parties.

We are so happy with how our kitchen turned out and we can’t wait to share more about our favorite features of these appliances (and the delicious recipes they help us make!) soon.

KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series 7-Qt Bowl Lift Stand Mixer
KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series 7-Qt Bowl Lift Stand Mixer with 1.3 HP Motor. Motor horsepower for our mixer motors was measured using a dynamometer, a machine laboratories routinely use to measure the mechanical power of motors. Our 1.3 horsepower (HP) motor reference reflects the horsepower rating of the motor itself and not the mixer’s horsepower output to the mixer bowl. This robust motor, the backbone of our new mixer, delivers .44 HP to the bowl enabling your mixer to deliver consistent power to small and large loads with less heat build-up; resulting in years of dependable mixing. When combined with and guided by our new advanced motor control board, this is our longest lasting and most efficient motor yet. Simply put, our new, highly efficient, special purpose motor delivers the power you need when you need it. Learn More
