kitchen remodel // inspiration

January 22, 2014

we’re on the brink of remodeling our kitchen and i’m thrilled and terrified all at once. the most difficult step is over, we’ve submitted our permit application to the city…it only took four trips to the permit office, weeks of unanswered phone calls and countless moments of “what the hell is this question even asking?!” but alas, we survived.

obviously the best part of a remodel is dreaming up your perfect room and then reconciling it with your literal budget. honestly the more time you’re willing to invest, the more bang you can get for your buck. we started with inspiration boards (thanks pinterest) and then researched the hell out of each aspect to see how we could achieve the look we want with the funds we have. at times you must be a little clever, but it’s doable. our kitchen vision is as follows:

kitchenour dream is a simple and minimal space with lots of natural light and touches of rustic detail. it’ll be an eat-in kitchen with reclaimed wood floors, dark lower cabinets with natural wood open shelving up top, and a classic subway tile back splash. we’re also going to build a gigantic farm table to sit in the middle of it all.

we break ground this week, so i’ll be keeping y’all updated as we go and sharing lessons learned from our trials and triumphs throughout this remodel process.

*we’re also converting our two car garage into a master suite and laundry room. holy hell i’m excited about that too. i’ll be sharing inspiration for that later this week.
