If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I’m in the process of remodeling my kitchen. It is hard for me to make a decision on this project because of a lot of different factors. So, I thought I would share with you the process from the beginning!
(Also, if you aren’t already following me on Instagram you can follow along daily with the kitchen progress…HERE.)
So here is what my kitchen “sort-of” looks like currently (these were taken a few years ago)…
The light over the island is different now and the eat-in area has a bench, but other than that it’s all the same!
Here are some of the inspiration photos that I’m starting with…

My kitchen is smaller so I’m going to stick to a lighter color cabinet, but I want to incorporate some wood tones to bring in some warmth.
Here is my list of things that will absolutely change:
- Cabinets will get a fresh coat of paint
- Replace both faucets (sink and pot filler)
- Install a new range
- Replace the range hood
- Replace the chandelier with a recessed light over the eat-in table
- New tile backsplash
Her is my wish list for the things I’m HOPING to change:
- Replace all the cabinet doors with a Shaker style
- Change out the countertops to something lighter
- Replace the sink with a single basin
- Convert the built-in microwave to a cabinet with doors
- Add a set of cabinets to both sides of the patio doors
We plan to live in this house until our girls graduate from high school, which is at least another 7 years. Knowing that, and the fact that this is the last shot I’m going to get at making this kitchen what I want…I’m having trouble pulling the trigger on some of the design choices.
If you want to get a better idea of what the room looks like and see my thought process, you can check out this video ↓:
Next week I’ll share my design board with you!
You’re so funny…faucet bandana!
I’m eager to watch the progress. We live in a house we don’t love but own. When we married, I moved into his house. The cabinets are still honey oak and I have no words for how badly I dislike them. hahaha
Trying to decide what upgrades to make and what’s worth it and what’s not. I’m home all day so I need to love it. Thanks for the video showing the plan. Love that Bistro sign.
Thank you!! I understand being home all day. Even simple changes can sometimes make a huge difference. Good luck!!
