This is part of an ongoing project in Kansas City’s historic Waldo neighborhood. You can catch up on what happened in weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4 here, herehere and here.

The flooring really draws the new kitchen together.

Wow. Even just a week ago, the finished kitchen still seemed so far off, but a lot of great pieces fell into place this week.

This week began with flooring, and it really brings the whole space together. Since countertops and cabinets finished installation this week as well, the space feels nearly complete.

The dark countertops and new hutch are great focal points.

The finishing touches in the new kitchen are almost done, with the glass being installed in the cabinets, the hutch and backsplash over the range, and the bench complete under the window.

Next, all we had to install were the lighting fixtures and move some of the furniture in. The furniture is modern yet inviting, and the new lights bring a warm feeling into the kitchen.

Furniture is moved in and the kitchen remodel is almost done!

Next week, we’ll be finishing up the small bathroom addition and sharing final, completed photos. The Allmon family is ready to use their new kitchen (particularly the new cook-top) and are excited to complete the project.

Check back next week for before and after photos!
