After Monday’s post about our new dishwasher I have been dreaming about what to do with our kitchen. Basically our kitchen is two separate parts. The first half of the kitchen has the appliances and what appears to be the original cabinets, which have probably been painted over a dozen times. Warning: old pics coming up…
The other half of the kitchen is the tiny eating area and additional cabinet and counter space that was added more recently.
Ha, I just realized the blind in the sunroom in the background looks like a hot mess (as well as the tags on the seat cushions, but oh well). Those blinds are long gone, and we now have pretty clean ones that actually fit the windows!
As far as the kitchen goes, obviously a lot has to be changed, and who knows if and when we will get to any of it, but a girl can dream, right?
Let’s start with the cabinets. I am loving the look of two toned cabinets (all pics via Pinterest-and thanks to a tip I have the sources below).
What do you think? Light gray or white on top and a medium shade of gray on the bottom? Would this look like too much gray next to our blue-gray dining room? The other option would be white on top and a light khaki color on the bottom.
I also like the white subway tile backsplash. I know it is so popular, but it looks so clean. I think I would do gray grout instead of white though.
And the flooring, boy oh boy, do we need new floors! The terra cotta tile is sooooo bad. Thankfully this (and the connecting 1/2 bath) is the only room that needs new floors. Kevin and I love the look of this:
It’s porcelain tile made to look like wood; it’s genius!
I would also love to have a cozy little breakfast nook…
I think the breakfast nook is the perfect solution to our cramped eating area. I’m picturing a round table and possibly a built in bench…
So much to think about! Hopefully we can make some of these dreams come true
What have you been dreaming about lately? Your house, family, going on vacation? I can definitely talk about some vacation dreams, but I don’t want to bore you!
Have a fantastic weekend!
