I’m so blissful to share that our kitchen and powder room reno is lastly full! The venture took about six and a half weeks and whereas I can actually say I felt each hour of that six and a half weeks, it was price it.
Let’s begin with the powder room. It’s a small area and whereas I really feel uncomfortable going large and daring, I used to be simply wanting a change – so large and daring I went. I received this pink wallpaper and Dan put in it. It is rather pink however I’m actually into it!
Above you’ll be able to see the earlier than and after video I made on Instagram. The world was nice – however we had been excited to provide the area slightly replace. We did new flooring, cupboards and counter tops, new range with conversion to electrical, new sink and tap, and new rest room within the powder room.
We saved the pedestal sink we already had and swapped out the fixtures. Initially I didn’t love the black and wished I’d gone with gold or a light-weight bronze, but it surely’s rising on me. I received this mirror, and added a inexperienced hand towel to the gold towel holder I received as nicely.
I like that the blue island matches the blue of the eating room.
I like the feel of the tile – it is porcelain and designed for interiors but it surely type of jogs my memory of blue stone. I selected it as a result of Buckles doesn’t do nicely on slick or polished tile (which is why you see an enormous runner within the earlier than video) – and he has no drawback with this in any respect!! I debated in regards to the blue island – whether or not to do a White Island and blue backside cabinetry, or every part white – and I’m actually glad I ended up with this. We additionally did cupboards as much as the ceiling, which provides us a lot more room for storage and in addition makes the room really feel greater and brighter to me.
For home equipment, I saved the identical fridge and dishwasher I already had, and we made the choice to modify from electrical to gasoline, and I used to be capable of finding a 30” Wolf vary in inventory at a close-by equipment store. When it arrived, it appeared to have been dropped (!!!!) and was dented, however a Wolf rep got here out and inspected it carefully, and changed every bit that wanted changing and mentioned we must be good to go. I used it at the moment and it really works completely, however fortunately it’s beneath guarantee, if something goes improper sooner or later.
I received these handles, which I cherished as a result of it picked up each the gold and the gray – they usually have a little bit of texture to them that I felt appeared cool.
I’m so pleased with the way it got here out – however the one factor I’ve realized is that when you end one venture, you discover forty-five extra to do, so we’re already beneath contract to color our bed room and do some electrical work in there for slightly updating as nicely, so when you’re into house stuff, keep tuned for that.
