Kitchen Reno Update!

Hi all! I hope you had a great weekend! Our kitchen renovation has been a slow process (we started tearing out the tile flooring over a year ago and moved onto other things!), but we are in the last few weeks - I cannot wait! We've been without a real kitchen for a while - SO excited for our new and improved kitchen!

You may remember this mood board that I shared the other week.

We'll keep the base white (it's pretty dark here, so we want to keep everything as light as possible - including adding lots of additional sources of light - sconces, under cabinet, pendants). And adding contrast and warmth with pops of black and accents of natural wood.

Here's what it looked like when we moved in. 

It was so cramped and the layout of horrible! You couldn't have two people work in there at one time - having ample clearance between countertops so that two people can easily walk past each other (42" is a good measurement) makes a kitchen so much more functional.

We installed hardwood into the kitchen and refinished the floors - since then the floors have been stained - all cabinets removed and most of the painting and drywall are up! So excited to fill this blank slat!!

We're working with Home Depot and I love how it's coming together! Here are a few renderings!

We'll be using KraftMaid cabinets, Silestone quartz countertops, Samsung black stainless appliances 

If you couldn't tell from above I'm just a little excited :) I can't wait to see how it comes together! Stay tuned!!


  1. You've come so far already. I'm always baffled why people cut a room in half with different flooring. I have a deep dislike for that look ;) and it just shows once again how much better and bigger a cohesive floor makes a space look.

    1. Thanks for your comment! :) the new flooring is my favorite!

  2. I love the design you came up! There is a lot of storage which is great but I love that you put some open shelves to break this up. I am a Interior designer working on remodels and new construction. What computer program do you use for your 3d rendering? Is that Sketchup Pro? I use Revit but I feel like I can get stuck with the limits that it has.

    1. I'm not sure what program Home Depot used but I like sketchup!


Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts! I love hearing what you think! :)
