Hillside Kitchen Remodel Webisode

This week's episode is especially fun because we're sharing the kitchen remodel of videographer, Beth Fielding of Fielding Films! She's usually behind the camera so it was fun to have her in front of it for a change. We partnered with Semihandmade for all the doors, drawers, and cabinets in the project. We usually go custom with our cabinets, but when we can't Semihandmade is the way to go.

Beth and her family lived in the home during the renovation, so we were motivated to put the kitchen back together as quickly as possible. We were impressed by the ease of the Semihandmade process! Ikea came to the home and covered the measurements and details, providing a detailed list of what was needed. Based on Ikea's shopping list, Semihandmade made a list of all the doors and drawers needed for the kitchen. You can get cabinets fronts from Semihandmade that you can paint a custom color, but we choose their prepainted shaker option and the install process was easy! Semihandmade is a great option if you want something that feels custom. Plus, if you lived in the house during the remodel like Beth did, it's a great option for a fast install. You don't want to lose your kitchen and living room for too long when you've got a family!


Sarah Sherman Samuel designed the Semihandmade cabinets to be a show stopping green/gray (Pigeon & Wimborne White by Farrow & Ball), which gave this entire kitchen a beautiful custom feel. We love the cabinets paired with the solid slabs of Calacatta Marble — it's sleek, clean, and takes the kitchen to the next level.

One of the biggest benefits of Semihandmade cabinets is how fast the install is. Ikea is extremely helpful in the process and installed the boxes quickly. After that, it didn't take any time to complete the cabinetry. The one hurdle that Beth's kitchen faced was in installing other parts of her kitchen. Fortunately those hiccups didn't prevent her from being able to use her kitchen and other rooms since construction in one room usually means another room is taken over by storage, prep, etc. In this kitchen remodel, Chris Loves Julia completed renovation in only 6 days with the help of Semihandmade!

If we didn't read this on Amber's Instagram account the other day, we would have NEVER guessed that these cabinets are from Ikea with Semihandmade fronts!

Smart lighting and hardware choices instantly gives this kitchen an upscale feel. We love how the shaker cabinet option from Semihandmade can look completely different from kitchen to kitchen because of paint color and hardware.

As much as we are loving colorful cabinets right now, we'll always have room for a beautiful all-white kitchen!

We love the warmth of the butcher block and the brass hardware combo!
