TOTAL KITCHEN OVERHAUL

The next step on the home tour is the kitchen.  Everyone's favorite place to hang out!  We truly have learned that in the short time we've lived here and the few get together's that we've thrown, the kitchen is the heart of the hangout!  



The kitchen was originally pretty small, dark and not all that functional.  Since we didn't have a ton of space to work with we knew that we needed to not only maximize the space but make it feel visually larger.



We were lucky with this house because right off the kitchen there was a mudroom/laundry space that wasn't big enough to be functional that we were able to combine into the kitchen which made the space far larger than I would have ever imagined.  My husband and I both love all white kitchens and so deciding on white cabinets and subway tiles was an easy decision for us.  We chose a medium grout so that tiles could pop a little and also bring out the veining in the marble.  An all white kitchen look is great because it serves as a blank slate and allows for fun and eclectic decor.


I'm so glad we chose the hardware that we did, I absolutely love how it contrasts all of the white but still keeps the space so simple.  I also like the visual interest of the vertical and horizontal lines it creates. 
 

This is my husbands favorite thing about the kitchen.  It's our pantry and extra storage for all those appliances you forget that you have.  It's currently about half full but we know through the years we will be happy with all the extra storage!  Plus, the hardware looks especially cool here.


After a lot of back and forth we finally decided on these chairs and I'm so glad that we did! Since making so many decisions through the whole process some of the smaller ones were really hard for me to commit to.  These chairs ended up being a great choice because they're pretty affordable and honestly one of the most comfortable barstools I've ever sat on!  And the dark wood really contrasts nicely with all the white.
