Happy almost SPRING!
We are finally experiencing Spring-like weather which is giving me an extra bounce in my step!
Today I will be sharing our KITCHEN!
When we built our home a couple of years back, white kitchens were all the rage. I know the white trend is still going strong, but today, people are starting to experiment more with other colors, such as black, forest green, and greige to name a few.
To be honest I still love my kitchen, although I am excited to try something new and polar opposite in the fixer. More on that later.
I’ll make this short and sweet.
Faucet. I wanted the polished chrome look so we went with this Danze faucet ordered off amazon (linked below.) It’s definitely an eye catcher and has served us very well . Snag this baby while it’s on sale!
I wish I could link this backsplash from the Tile Collection however my brother in law was the one who got it and I believe it’s no longer in stock. You can order similar backsplash from Lowes. I will link it at the bottom of the post.
I was worried that the gray honeycomb would clash with the warm tones of the granite but it turned out perfect! The gray tones pulled together the white cabinets perfectly with the warmer granite.
The granite is white delicatus. Unashamedly, I chose it for the sparkle.
Our cabinets are a standard white shaker, 48″ in height. Tip: When buying cabinets, try to buy those whose color was baked after being painted rather than just painted cabinets. The baking prevents chipping and peeling in the long run!
Hardware linked here from amazon. I liked the unconventional sparkly knobs paired with the more modern chrome handles.
Appliances are Kitchen Aid apart from our GE cafe series Refrigerator. TOTALLY HONEST OPINION HERE: I am not a baker. While I love my double ovens, but if I have to be honest, I only used both top and bottom on Christmas. Every other day, I only used one. So in our new home, I am definitely opting for a pretty vintage range and oven combo instead. (fingers crossed)
My favorite part of the kitchen is definitely the pot rack. I bought mine from Ikea but you can order a similar one from Amazon that I linked below if you don’t have an Ikea near you. The linked one is longer than the one I have! The copper pots were a lucky find from our trip to France. I would encourage scouring your thrift stores on the daily to build up your collection if you can’t make it out to a parisian flea market.
And of course, the runner and little accessories are from Home Goods, thrift stores, or Target. You can find a similar runner on Amazon!
That’s pretty much it for the kitchen! It has served me wonderfully these past few years and I’m so excited for the next homeowner to enjoy it as much as I did. As for me, onward to the next kitchen in the Fixer and in our next build!
