Our Home Renovations

Kitchen remodel plans

We have been dreaming about renovating our home for the last 5 years. We knew it had the potential to deliver the beachy/coastal vibe we were after but the floors, cabinetry and layout was old, tired and dated. So last year we embarked on an extensive remodel of our kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, etc. It was 2 months of living in only a few rooms of our home, with dust (omg, the dust) and noise but the end result is everything I’ve ever dreamed of. And at least we can say we’ve lived through a home renovation during a pandemic! I have been sharing more of the process on my Instagram so follow me there for more behind the scenes and images: @alidaryder.
