I am so excited to finally be sharing our kitchen reveal with you!! It has been almost a year since we moved into our home. And while the kitchen reno was completed about 4 months after moving in, it has taken me this long to get the finishing touches all in place. I am finally “done” with this room – I promised Aaron I would be 😉
The before pictures are the listing pictures – and they are pretty shocking. My mom, who loves decorating and home design, took one look and said NO to the house ;). But I could see past the slate and the bad colors, and lack of lighting – the cabinets were a great style, the space was what we needed…I could picture it the way we wanted our kitchen to look.
I will list and link all of the items and colors below. To begin, we tore out the sink, microwave, the flooring, the counters, the backsplash. and the center island/table thing. It was rough living through the demo – as I am sure anyone who has lived through a demo will tell you.
I knew the overall feel of how I wanted the kitchen to be – a sort of elegant, timeless feel, but still warm enough to feel like a family kitchen. That vision started with white cabinets – as I mentioned, the existing cabinets were a great style, so we were able to use them and add a hood and a couple similar cabinets added in places the demo took them out. We then painted the ceilings white and the walls a beige. I went with a herringbone pattern for our light grey subway tile backsplash. One of the things I was most excited for was our full, size farm-house sink and beautiful faucet. I over-analyzed faucets for a very, very long time.
At this point, I was in need of help. I counted on my friend, Erica Bryant, to again help me with the final stretch of this room. She helped me select hardware (which I daily think about how much I love it) and rugs as well as stage my kitchen counters. She does such a wonderful job of understanding my style and always presents me with a couple choices – which narrowing all of the hardware choices for me down to 2 was a HUGE help! I struggle with the staging aspect sometimes and I can always count on Erica to bring up ideas I wouldn’t have thought of. I also appreciate being able to bounce ideas off of her and have her help re-arrange my current items. When putting this much work and money into a space, it is definitely worth having an expert help!!
