What Does An Olympia Kitchen Designer’s Kitchen Look Like?

Original kitchen during first stages of remodeling

For Cabinets by Trivonna, the answer to that question begs another question: When?

We bought a 70’s vintage fixer-upper in 2005.  Before we could remodel the kitchen, we decided to open our business – thus delaying our dream kitchen.

The original kitchen was so bad that I didn’t take any “before” pictures until after we had begun to tear out the wall separating our kitchen and family room.





Our refrigerator would not fit in the hole provided.  I had to chop of the cabinet above, and take about an inch off the cabinet to the left.  When the dishwasher was open, one couldn’t open the freezer door without hitting it.

The cook top was on the end of the Island near the refrigerator (couldn’t open it while someone was standing at the cook top).

It was hard on Trivonna to come home to that kitchen for over five years!







Having removed the wall, Trivonna placed the refrigerator in what was the family room, making room for a gas range. She moved the wall ovens only slightly, thus saving the cost of moving the electrical and making room for a pantry.

I love my new kitchen – but not as much as I love my kitchen designing wife – Trivonna!!
