The kitchen and dining room area was like the family room, a purely cosmetic update. In the photo below you will see that the cabinets were the outdated honey-color with lack luster hardware and beige tile that was “meh”.
|DETAILS OF KITCHEN BEFORE|
We needed to update the kitchen, but we had the countertops to work around. With the black/brown speckled warm-toned granite I thought black cabinets would look the best, but we didn’t want to make the space too dark and dramatic, so we went with white upper cabinets and black lowers. As for the dining area, I unfortunately didn’t take a before picture, but you can imagine the changes we made by looking at the photos.
These are the updates we needed to make:
- paint kitchen cabinets
- new tile backsplash
- new floor tile
- new hardware
- new barstools and dining chairs
- new wall paint
- dining light
- window treatments
- create computer space in dining
- The dining light is a favorite of mine – and it fit the space perfectly!
- And who doesn’t love some classic bistro chairs?
- Isn’t the white wall color classic? It’s my favorite go-to Benjamin Moore 50/50 mix of White Dove and Glacier White. Hasn’t failed me yet!
- The earthy/industrial stools are a great value and a must-have.
- The white beveled subway tile and black slate tile really complete the room. (locally sourced)
- And I am loving the cabinet hardware. The knobs and pulls are perfection.
- The kitchen roman shade is custom, and I love how it ties together the green accents and black in the room. It finishes off the space in just the right way.
