We are remodeling our kitchen! I have wanted to take on this project ever since we bought this house, so the fact that construction has started is a dream come true. When we purchased our home, there was a lot that I didn’t love about the space. But we got a really good price on it and it had the potential to transform into a home we could love long term … with a little work. We’ve already completed two bathroom remodels, and after the kitchen, the last major project will be our bathroom.
Today on the blog I am sharing our moodboard for the kitchen remodel project. I really wanted to do something different. For a long time I thought I wanted a white kitchen, but after researching and spending hours on Pinterest, I realized that I was drawn more to kitchens with a little bit of color. Also the functionality of all white with my wild family seemed like more of a source of stress than inspiration!
I became obsessed with this Pinterest image and shared it with our designer for inspo. I loved the green/grey coloring of the cabinets, so we worked together to find a color that I would love in my home.
*Spoiler, we did a last minute color change just before production started, so you’ll have to wait to see the final color we went with in the final reveal!
I also really love gold accents and have purchased a few items that I think will really help bring the space together. We bought our half bathroom faucets from Amazon for our other remodel and I haven’t loved the quality over time, so we splurged a bit on the kitchen faucet. It’s going to be used every single day, so we need something that we can count on.
Our countertops have some great character to them, not too busy but interesting enough to really be the focal point of the room. I still can’t believe we are taking our ugly old L-shaped kitchen and transforming it into a gorgeous open space with an island. Ah! I can’t wait!
Keep following along on Instagram, as I share updates via Stories as often as I can. I can’t wait to share the big reveal soon. Things are starting to happen really fast. Do you create a mood board for your remodel projects? I feel like they really help keep me focused! You can shop a few items that we’ve purchased so far below!
