I haven’t done much with the kitchen as far as decorating. Mainly because I know the work will require some general contractor work with new cabinetry and stuff. Meanwhile, I did do a couple things to give it a fresher look.
Here is the realtor picture. The aluminum blinds were badly stained and probably original to the house. I updated with roller shades and just this weekend, I added some color with the valances.
Once I figure out a color for this area, I’ll rehang them so they’re even but for now it will due.
I saw this at World Market today and I think I can get it for my kitchen area. Even once I’m done with the reno, the colors will work too.
This is, however, one of those purchases I’m not being impulsive about.
Kitchen Reno idea –
While the kitchen reno will be a few years down the line, I’ve been gathering ideas already. The latest is inspired by the above picture. Clean, white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and red engineered stone or recycled glass countertop. For the back splash, I’m thinking a soft grey or something.
I think it would be just enough color to make the tiny kitchen pop without it being overwhelming.
On my wishlist – hopefully will get this summer – my chimney hood to replace my microwave exhaust that recirculates back to the room.
Thanks to my tax refund, I’ll be getting this stove soon. I sort of set my current one on fire thanks to a broiling bacon incident one night. I mean, fire extinguisher was involved and then I was quickly knocking down my smoke detectors from it. It was THAT bad.
