I’m pretty sure most people would find our new kitchen cringe-worthy, but it’s my favorite part of the house by far. First off, it’s massive – we make 97% of our meals at home, and all from scratch, so we need a lot of prep space. And it’s not uncommon for the Mountain Man to be cooking while I’m baking, which just equals us typically crashing into each other. Now we’ll have separate prep stations, plus ample storage for all our supplies.
That said, the kitchen needs a little facelift. I’ve long loved black, white, and wood kitchens – in fact, I think they’re the most fabulous things ever. So I’ll be painting our cabinets white, putting in a subway tile back-splash, butcher block counters, and new appliances. And new lighting, which is a whole other long story to share…
Here’s some of the inspiration I’m working off of for the space.
I love the warmth of the wood against the white cabinets and black details – a trend I’m sure will repeat over and over again throughout the house. I really wanted a vintage stove, but finding an old gas range that fits in a 30″ spot is harder than one might think. So it goes – I’m just excited to see this space brighten up and cook our first meal in it!
