KITCHEN REFRESH – THE INSPIRATION
You guys! I am a bit late but heck we are giving our kitchen a little refresh in the next six weeks. Say what!
Yup! I am signing up for the challenge once again.:-) This picture below was my last makeover, THE COZY BREAKFAST NOOK.
I love challenges, and it seems like every time I sign up for the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda over at Calling it Home, it turns out to be a fantastic makeover. Why? Becuase I love to be motivated, and I love to finish every makeover in six short weeks. I know that if there was no deadline, I would maybe procrastinate with all my projects lol. You can find all my makeovers listed below. They were all fun!
So what’s in my basket this time?
KITCHEN REFRESH! I am so super excited about this project, guys! I’ve been itching to tackle this kitchen refresh for a long time but I just never got to it yet.
When we moved into our home, almost ten years ago, we had oak cabinets that were originally built in. I hated them from the beginning, but of course, we did not get to remodel it for a few more years.
Then fast forward four years, we decided to give it a go and remodel our kitchen. Back then I was all about dark cabinets. We planned out our kitchen using IKEA cabinets, and we assembled everything from the boxes. It was a huge remodel, but it was also a budget-friendly remodel. We did everything on our own and just to mention, I was 38 weeks pregnant. Yeah! I was hoping that project will help me to get into labor lol.
So this time around we won’t make huge changes. Outlined is my plan for this space:
- PAINT UPPER AND LOWER CABINETS
- PAINT BACKSPLASH
- TILE FLOOR
- ADD BUTCHER BLOCK TO THE ISLAND
- TAKE OUT MICROWAVE (we never use it) and ADD A RANGE HOOD
- TAKE OUT CABINETS AND BUILD OPEN SHELVES (to the right side of the window)
Well, I think this is it! And here is my mood board for this kitchen refresh and I am hoping to get the look close to what you see on my mood board.
So what do you think? Please help me to choose the right tiles. I really would love to stick to black and white, but I am undecided on which tile I should go with! Leave me a comment, and I hope you will be following along in this fun Kitchen refresh!
My beautiful tiles will be provided by Wayfair!
Thanks for checking in today!
Top left tile for sure.
I am trying out the challenge for the first time and doing a kitchen refresh as well!! Your past makeovers helped convince me to just go for it!! Your inspiration here is beautiful, and I can’t wait to see it all done!! Good luck girl!!
Girl, this is going to be goooorgeous!
Ooh, I love that top left tile option! Kind of faded but so pretty, that’s got my vote 🙂 I’m excited to see what you do! I wish we were going to be able to get anything in our house done in six weeks, haha, but I’m planning on doing black cabinets in our kitchen too 🙂
top right tile (the one with the least amount of black) – less busy!
You’re kitchen is going to look amazing when it’s done! I think the lower left tile would look best with your design.
Love the plans! Our new house has and ok-ish kitchen which I have been trying to make lovable, Taking out cabinets for open shelving really helped, Can.t wait for the finished product
I am excited to add open shelves, although I had to convince the hub first! He wasn’t sold completely until I showed him some awesome inspo images.:-)
I know it’ll turn out amazing, as usual Aniko! I see you’re going to be updating your backsplash by painting it – why not try Smart Tiles – they’re peel and stick tiles. You can stick them onto your existing tiles! Super easy application. Just a thought 😉
You are giving me some awesome ideas, Jen! I will look into it! Thanks for checking in!:-) XOXO
This is going to be amazing! I can’t wait to see how you pull it all together! You’re giving me all kinds of ideas.
I am excited too! Am I ready? Not really… I am still tired after the outdoor kitchen makeover lol!
I’ve loved your previous makeovers and was bummed when I didn’t see your post yesterday- can’t wait to see what you do! Your mood board is SO pretty and YOU!
Right? I was like…I can’t miss an ORC so last minute I jumped on the wagon.:-) Glad to hear that you will be following along! XOXO
