Kitchen Dreaming

Good morning!  

I've been thinking more and more about buying my townhome.  It was on the market before it went up for rent, so I am hopeful that my landlords might consider selling to me.  That's a ways away, but of course that won't stop me from daydreaming about what I would do if this home becomes mine.  I thought I could share some of my musings with you.  Up today is the kitchen.

The kitchen is a great size with plenty of cabinets, a functional layout, room for a table and chairs and lots and lots of potential.  Here are some pictures of the kitchen from when i first moved in.  

Good bones, but there is so much I would do to this space.

First and foremost, I would paint those cabinets white. I would paint them white so fast it would be shocking.  And I would add gorgeous hardware.  Like this kitchen.  I like the mix of glass front and regular front doors.  But I'm not sold on that.  Oh and see that gorgeous gooseneck faucet? I want that too.   

Another thing that needs to go is the floor, which is currently a white ceramic tile.  I-hate-it.  It is impossible to keep clean. And it's just a little too white (ha! I know! this coming from me!).  I think I'd like dark wood floors to run through the entire first floor. I love the tone in this picture.  

Next up: appliances.  White/black out; stainless in. Look how pretty.

The counters need to go, too. They are a plastic laminate and just, well, boring.  I looooove marble but know that's not practical.  So I am thinking maybe a corian type material or butcher block.  I've heard mixed reviews about butcher block though.  I also love the subway tile backsplash in these pictures.  I think I'd love that as well. 


Finally, I'd like to add some custom plantation blinds to the windows.  I love how this looks.

So there you go!  A little round-up of where my mind is on my kitchen.  I've also got my mind on my money and my money on my mind. Sorry, couldn't resist.  

See you swoon,

  1. A year ago, I was feeling the EXACT same way!! We did it step by step.. first painting the cabinets, then adding new hardware, then the new appliances, then new backsplash, and then the new floors, and SOON new countertops :) Just because you can't do it all at once, doesn't mean you can't get started! (At least in my household lol) Your kitchen has a TON of potential! :)
