Happy Thursday:) Geesh I know they say April showers bring May flowers, but for real I AM SO over cold, rainy, snowy weather. Living in New England takes a toll on you this time of year because you are just like ummm Spring where are you??? Anyways, today I wanted to share with you what my kitchen inspiration has been for the new space. I know I shared some inspirational images with you on our moving post, but I wanted to dive into more of the details that we are going to replicate within our space. For each category I wanted to show you what we plan on doing within that part of the kitchen space.
Kitchen Hood: I think the white built-in vented hood look is so sleek, and wonderful in any kitchen space. The carpentry work is so unique looking and the vented hood turns into more of a focal point rather than an eye soar. We are working with our kitchen company to accomplish something very similar to the below.
Open Shelving: I LOVE open shelving anywhere in a space especially in a kitchen! I want to put some in our kitchen by the wet bar. These pictures are what I am thinking for inspiration. I plan on stacking the shelves with our colorful dishes, and glasses that we have. They have awesome options on Etsy and they are reasonanably priced as well. I like the concept of open shelving SO much because you can see what dishes and plates you have, I know often times we are all guilty of not even knowing what we own so this is a good solution.
Farmhouse Sink: Who doesn’t love farmhouse sinks? They are not only gorgeous, but they are big enough to hold plenty of dishes, and really are so practical. Here is one that I LOVEE. We want to have a white one in the new kitchen. The look is so simple yet such a statement piece. They also are a lot deeper than a typical sink so floral arranging will become a lot easier for me..haha these are the things I think about.
Glass Cabinetry: One of the other must haves I wanted to make sure was incorporated into our kitchen design were a few glass doors on our cabinetry. Similar to open shelving glass doors on your cabinetry allow you to showcase your pretty china, and colorful pieces you own. I am so excited to see how these turn out!
Wet Bar: We have never had an area designated to mixin’ up cocktails so designing this part of our kitchen has been super exciting for us! I mean what is more fun then an area to store all of your fancy cocktail glasses? We are even going to have a wine/beverage cooler similar to the one shown below. We will have a built in wine rack + wine glass holder above the counter top to make sure we have plenty of room for all the wines we love.
Runners: In this kitchen we will have a lot more space to place a pretty runner by the kitchen sink, so I have been loving some of these runners designs below. They are neutral and go with everything!
Today we are finalizing the tile and Friday we are finishing up the kitchen layout. We are so close to getting all of the larger details complete it is kind of surreal. The little details are what seem to be the most tedious, but we will cross the finish line soon enough! EEEK!
Have a great rest of your week my friends:)
