I love my little Arctic Fox RV but one of the things that I REALLY didn’t love about it was the kitchen area. With very little counter space, cooking was often a challenge.
Since this is my full time home and I love to cook – I decided to renovate. The first 2 images below show what it looked like direct from the factory. (I “borrowed” these images since I didn’t have any of my own.)
Here is the final result:
A good friend removed the sofa and the half wall behind it. While I might miss the extra seating and storage the sofa provided, I much prefer having a bigger counter. I also didn’t want to add a ton of extra weight so something had to go! Guests will just have to sit on the floor. 😉
The butcher block countertop, the sink, and the faucet all came from Ikea. I didn’t like the RV products that were available (They were expensive but felt cheap.) and Home Depot and Lowes didn’t have sinks that would fit in the base cabinet. My cabinetry skills are sadly lacking so I wasn’t about to try to build new cabinets.
That space below the sink was a recessed spice shelf but I had to remove it since the new sink needed just a little extra room.
All in all, I added an additional 42″ of counter space. The wire shelving (42″x21″) just squeezed into the space so it’s not going to move at all. The white storage bins hold dry goods and all my pots and pans finally fit into 1 place.
I’m not in love with the fake tile around the stove but the original wallpaper border just didn’t work for me and real tile wasn’t an option.
I love my new kitchen! What do you think?
