I’m not sure I’ve ever posted photos of our kitchen before, mainly because it’s not done, heck I haven’t even started it. The only thing we’ve done was take down the ceiling fan over the kitchen table and added a hanging pendant light over the sink.
I know some people love the look of wood and I like it in small doses but the cabinets are just not working for me. If you notice there is no backsplash and the outlets for some reason are black and stick out like a sore thumb.
At first we thought about tearing up the floors and taking out the eat in area and extending the cabinets to the french doors and putting in an island but in reality that just isn’t in the budget anytime soon.
I’ve decided to work with what we’ve got and make some simple updates next year like new curtains, painting the cabinets, new hardware a backsplash and some area rugs to hide the floor a bit.
Below are some inspiration photos for my kitchen update.
I’m for sure going to paint the cabinets 2 different colors. They’ll either be gray or black on the bottom cabinets and cream on top.
I’ve posted the above photo on my Facebook page before. Honestly it’s my most favorite kitchen everrrr! Don’t you love the backsplash? If marble looks good against my current countertops that’s what I’m going to pick and have it installed in a herringbone pattern like the floor and perhaps all the way up to the ceiling.
(Oh and that lantern…I must find one to put in my living room stat!)
Of course I’m loving the brass handles and I plan on mixing medals in the kitchen. Oh and see the tile all the way up to the ceiling? It makes a great impact don’t you think?
Now that we have a bit of a plan for the kitchen I can’t wait to get started!!
(On the pregnancy front, the cerclage removal last Friday was fast and surprisingly pretty easy, no pain involved it was just uncomfortable. Lots of contractions for the last few days but unfortunately not at regular intervals, so I’m progressing very slowly.) Thanks for all the emails, txt’s and phone calls everyone!!)
