kitchen dreams


I've been dreaming of a kitchen remodel recently. Our kitchen is nice, but it is the style of the family that lived in the home before Aaron and I bought it. I would really like to update some things in the kitchen to fit more in line with our taste... aiming for a rustic-modern look.

In an effort to keep the budget under control, I think we would keep the existing cabinets and just paint them white and add different pulls. I would also love to re-do the floors, but that would mean re-flooring the entire main floor of the house since it is continuous throughout all the rooms - so we will save that for another day ;) 


Notice the lovely craft beer collection growing on my windowsill?  Once the kitchen is re-done they will be moved to a new home - the basement ;)


Some changes I would like to make...

// update paint colors on walls - light grey?
// white/grey marble counter tops (and remove the raised ledge on the main island)
// white wash the exposed brick chimney// white/grey marble counter tops
// white subway tile accent wall above the sink {with grey grout}
// white farmhouse sink {notice a theme??}
// new light fixtures above island and dinner table
// natural wood shelves

What makes up your dream kitchen?

  3. I think your kitchen is so pretty! It's always fun to update though! We moved into a house in December with a total 1970s kitchen. Fake brick vinyl floor, orangy/brown appliances, wood paneling, the whole nine years. We plan to remodel this summer and I'm having fun looking at pictures!

  4. I think your kitchen is gorgeous! But I know how you love your white! ;) I love your inspiration and remodel ideas! Definitely would change the look of the room! I especially love a farm house sink! My brother and sister in law just redid their kitchen cabinets with a rustoleum (spelling?) white kit and they turned out amazing! So much more affordable than new cabinets!

  5. Love your kitchen now too! ha Gorgeous exposed brick! I bet marble countertops would make a big difference alone!

  6. Joanna Gaines has one of the most beautiful kitchens I have ever seen. I think that it is important to do some remodeling after buying a home that was lived in previously. Remodeling gives you a change to make the space your own and add your touch to it. Remodeling also makes transitioning from one space to another easier to deal with.
