Lets talk kitchens....white ones to be exact. I mean I could talk about marble counter tops and farm sinks all day long and in to the night. Its my dream to have a gleaming white kitchen with a hood and pot filler over my stove. Beautiful marble counter tops and a herringbone backsplash or even maybe just some glossy white horizontal subway tile?!?!
Well the day is coming, I mean, okay well, its like some time next year but dagnamit Im closer then I have ever been!!
Brian and I have been talking a lot about what we want and there are some things Im still not sure of?!? I definitely know I want marble but Brian wants butcher block so we are trying to figure out how that is going to work? Do we want the island butcher block with the farm sink in it? I really like that look but Im torn because that is the location of the sink and I know I really like the way a white sink looks with marble framing it. Or do we just move the sink to another part of the kitchen? Brian sweats when I talk of these things. Ripping out the island, moving plumbing around but if we're doing this, I mean we're really doing it! Right?!
Ive never been crazy about the layout of our kitchen...i don't know if I like the flow? Will I like it if the counter tops and backsplash are in? Or will I wish we had refigured the space completely? I keep toying with the idea of swapping out our existing island for a long rectangular shaped one and moving the sink to under the window. Because honestly nothing would make me happier than having the sink under the window...I really believe that is where the kitchen sink belongs in all houses and those that think otherwise...well its a fight you will not win. But then that means we now have floors to think about? I really wonder if I want to take on such a giant project? Will we be happy with the investment? Because I have some time to think about all of this and trust me I have been thinking (obsessing) about it now for years now, I've been diligently scouring the internet for inspiration. Thankfully we live in a Pinterest world and the resources are endless! Here are some of my ideas so far.
Look at this....oh my heaven!! Could you just die for that subway tile!! I love how it goes all the way up the wall to meet the molding...gorgeous! I love the grey grout and how it makes the tile pop off the wall!
The hood for the range is another thing we are doing because I HATE, did you get that, I HATE the microwave over my stove!! Why is this ever a good idea? To this day I have never met anyone that had their kitchen set up this way and actually liked it! As far as hoods go... I'm dying for this one!
I swear I will love doing dishes when they are all dirty in my new farm sink! I swear:)
This sink...hello beautiful!
I have gone back and forth so many times about counter tops. Because boy oh boy do those stone people want to tell you how crazy you are for wanting to put marble in your kitchen! Be prepared my friends if you ever decide marble is for you because you will have to stand your ground. I have made up my mind about this one thing, thankfully! Ive done all the research and Im convinced marble is for me.
Something just like these... they make make hear skip a beat....swoon
But for now this is our kitchen and she isn't bad but how she longs for some sparkle in her life
I know people think Im crazy that I want to tear apart a perfectly good, brand new home. But I do. So I will. And it's going to be fabulous!!
Brian is sweating.
