The new year is all about new spaces so I thought I would do a fun series and share our home remodel from beginning to end!
Our kitchen was completely redone and was fun. When we purchased our home, the kitchen had ikea cabinets and outdated appliances. We decided to update the space with mixed metals, white cabinets and black honed granite.
We choose beveled subway tile to give the back splash a three dimensional look. Another unique feature we decided is to get paneled front dishwasher and refrigerator. It keeps the space clean and fluid with the cabinets.
One thing I absolutely love, and glad we made the investment was the farmhouse sink. It’s so nice to have one large open space for doing dishes, especially after a large event. Another way to dress up the sink is adding post on each side. We invested in our kitchen faucet- and went with the Itailian brand- Rohl. I love the subtle touches of exposed cabinets on each side of the sink.
To this area up a bit, we used a mosiac tile for the backsplash. I do love to cook so we added a pot filler which has come in handy when cooking!
AFTER We decided to open up the wall where was fridge was located to the living room. The flow is much better once we got this accomplished. We added a peninsula which has been great for serving food and entertaining. I love marble so we went with a beautiful Italian Calcutta Gold slab.
AFTER The breakfast area was separated with a half wall so we demo’ed that and cleaned up the look a bit with window trim, new Ralph Lauren light fixture, and floating shelves.
If you have any questions on any of my selections feel free to email me. Below are some of our selections linked. 🙂
*BONUS*- Laundry Room
Our laundry room before was tight space with the water heater so we decided to go tankless, it’s been a game changer. In it’s place we added an extra pantry for food and entertainment storage.
I love how our utility room turned out. Being that I have two small children, we do a lot of laundry so I wanted it to be an enjoyable room when I’m working in it! I choose to paint our cabinets a navy and matched it with a fun ceramic tile. For the walls we installed bead board and placed rods and hooks to hold the kids backpacks and keep the brooms and mops off the floor. I enjoy having a marble slab on top of my washer and dryer as it allows me to fold and iron clothes.
One easy way to dress up your laundry room is to get rid of those plastic detergent monsters and put the solutions in pretty canisters. I found these at Crate and Barrel.
That’s it! I hope you guys enjoyed our first series! I would love to hear from you on your thoughts! Links below. 🙂
Until next time,
