Kitchen/Dining Room

The kitchen, in its current state needs a little sprucing up, but it was actually one of the things that sold us on this house.  Of all the Capes we saw, the kitchen in this one was, by far, the largest.  We knew it had a ton of potential, just waiting to be tapped into.
Here, you can see the pass-through window into the Living Room (left) and the doorway.  To the right, is the wall with most of the main appliances (Stove/Oven, microwave, sink, dishwasher(!) and some cabinet space.  
We have big plans for this room in the future - we think we'd like to remove the wall between the kitchen and living room completely to open up that space and then shift the cabinets and refrigerators to the opposite wall (not pictured).  Basically, it would be one big L-Shaped kitchen, but on a connected wall and not separated, like it is here, by the entrance to the living room and hallway (right). We've also thought about adding an island right down the center of this room, for additional seating and put a dining table to the left (sort of like how it's pictured here).  Oh, and someone laid linoleum tile over the original hardwood floors in the Kitchen, so we're going to try to restore them.

Additional Room

This room wasn't original to the home, but it's actually my favorite.  It's about double the size pictured here (on the other side of the french doors) and it's SO bright and airy.  It has lots of windows, plus the skylights above!  I think the owner was using this as a formal dining room, but I think it would make a great family room/office/den, whatever you might call it.  I love the fact that right outside those doors is the upper level of our deck and I think it'd be a nice place to guests to hang out.  The other option would be to use it as a formal dining room, but since the kitchen is so big, we could probably fit a nicely sized table in there, too.  Lots of options!  

Downstairs Bathroom

This is one of the two full bathrooms in the house.  It's out-dated for sure, but we know all it really needs is a face-lift and some smart storage.  We can't wait to update this bathroom and say goodbye to the pepto-bismol pink toilet and tub.

Downstairs Bedroom (1)

This is one of the four bedrooms in the house, but one of the two that are downstairs.  It actually has two closets and it's an okay-size - we think it'll comfortably fit a queen-sized bed, dresser and bureau and two nightstands, but not much else.  
One of the first things we plan doing is ripping up the carpet and (hopefully!) revealing the beautiful hardwood floors underneath.  Also, that unicorn picture isn't staying. :)

Downstairs Bedroom (2)

This is the smallest of the four bedrooms in the house and was being used as an office by the seller.  We are contemplating doing the same since I work from home most of the time, but we're also toying with bringing the office area out into the additional room off the kitchen and making this small bedroom a designated guest bedroom.
Thinking down the line, we also think it would make a great Nursery, since it'd be right next to where we sleep.  We'll have to see what makes the most sense!

Upstairs Bathroom

When you get to the top of the steps, there's the second full bathroom in the house.  This one is actually the better-looking bathroom of the two, with white fixtures and glass sliding doors for the shower.  We don't have to do too much to it, except spruce it up a bit (walls and floors).

Upstairs Bedroom (1)

Here is the largest bedroom of all four.  You can actually only see half of it in this picture, but it's simply a great-sized bedroom.  We have big plans for the upper floor of this house - we'd like to extend the front to a full-dormer and split this big bedroom into two separate bedrooms, so that we'd have three bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs.  We also think it's a great option as a Master Bedroom in its current state.

Upstairs Bedroom (2)

Currently, there is no picture of this bedroom, but it's been painted BLUE (that will change), has two closets and the hardwood floors need to be re-finished.  But it's another great-sized bedroom (similar to the one across the hall).


There is also no picture of the basement, but it's partially-finished and down the line, we'd like to fully-finish it.  It has a huge bar down there and a decent amount of space that might make for a nice kids room or play room.  We may not keep the bar area forever, but it's cool that it's there for now.  There's also a corner down there that we think would make a wonderful wine cellar for us Oenophiles!
