Finished Kitchen Renovation



White Kitchen Renovation and Design

Our kitchen is finally done! It is so amazing not having contractors come to our home every week to work on cabinets,  paint, backsplash…the list goes on and on! So today I lots of pictures and I’ll give you details on everything as well. Let me first say that redoing our kitchen was a lot more work that I had anticipated on! However, I think in the end it was all worth it. I had a vision of what I wanted the end result to look like and it’s just as I imagined. Below are two pictures of what it looked like before the paint and backsplash.

And here is everything after.

Our cabinets are painted with Behr Swiss Coffee (semi-gloss), which is the color of our trim all throughout the house. When they first painted it I thought it looked so bright. But once the backsplash was installed (which is a bright white), the cabinets actually look much more creamy. The counters also look more grey no with everything completed. The counters are quartz and the color is New Carrara from Arizona Tile. We chose to use two slabs because I wasn’t a fan of pre-fab color options. Also, I don’t know if you remember, but we used to have a giant pantry to the left of the stove. We decided we’d rather have more counter space, so we extended the countertops to the wall. Now I use that space so much and I don’t even miss the pantry. Instead we have our spices, baking supplies, vitamins and other things in the two doors to the left of the over. We have all our canned goods and snacks in the drawer below the microwave.

We had glossy standard subway tile installed (non-bevel) with a light grey grout color. Originally we weren’t going to go all the way around the window, but I am so happy that’s what we ended up doing. I think it adds much more of an impact and completes the whole room.White Kitchen Renovation and Design White Kitchen Renovation and Design

Our hardware is from Home Depot and it’s by Martha Stewart (pulls & knobs in brushed nickel) Andrew ended up installing all of them and he did such an amazing job (I was super impressed)!

Like I mentioned in my part 1 of the reno, our sink (32 in.) and faucet are both from Kohler. Everyday I love them more and more. The faucet is not only beautiful, but it is so functional. It has an extendable spout and three different settings (normal, spray and one that cleans the bottom of the sink out). I’m really happy I went with an apron front sink. I love how wide it is so I can fit all my pans in it completely and I swear I enjoy cleaning our dishes more now!White Kitchen Renovation and Design White Kitchen Renovation and Design White Kitchen Renovation and Design White Kitchen Renovation and Design White Kitchen Renovation and Design

It ended up taking around two months to complete everything. Instead of having it all done at once, we wanted to space everything out (cabinets first, countertops next etc.) so we didn’t have to pay for everything all at once. It worked out great because we had a lot of time to decide on the exact thing we wanted done. Overall, I am so pleased with how everything turned out and I am also so thankful we did it all before our twins are born!
