Welcome to Our Kitchen.
The one room of the house that really begs to be changed is the kitchen. First of all, there’s no fridge and the stovetop doesn’t work. And secondly, it’s kind of an eyesore. Fluorescent lights in the ceiling, busy wallpapered or stained glass cabinet doors, and cracked Corian countertops aren’t exactly my personal aesthetic.
David and I set a budget for the kitchen of $9,000. That’s a lot of money for us, but we’ve also never renovated a kitchen before. Consumer Reports says a middle-of-the-road renovation costs more than $57,000– and honestly for that amount of money I feel like I could redo the entire house. I want a kitchen that is functional but also something I could see every day and enjoy being in it, too.
Here are some kitchens I’m really digging (courtesy of Pinterest and Houzz, my favorite sites in the world):
I love the yellow painted cabinets, see-through glass doors, blue accents, and the overall openness of this design.
