I’m so comfortable to share that our kitchen and powder room reno is lastly full! The mission took about six and a half weeks and whereas I can truthfully 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 massive and daring, I used to be simply wanting a change – so massive and daring I went. I bought this pink wallpaper and Dan put in it. It is extremely pink however I’m actually into it!
Above you may see the earlier than and after video I made on Instagram. The world was wonderful – however we had been excited to offer the area a bit of replace. We did new flooring, cupboards and counter tops, new range with conversion to electrical, new sink and tap, and new bathroom 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 lightweight bronze, but it surely’s rising on me. I bought this mirror, and added a inexperienced hand towel to the gold towel holder I bought as properly.
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 properly 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 all the things white – and I’m actually glad I ended up with this. We additionally did cupboards as much as the ceiling, which supplies us a lot more room for storage and in addition makes the room really feel larger 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 intently, and changed each piece that wanted changing and stated we needs to be good to go. I used it at the moment and it really works completely, however fortunately it’s below guarantee, if something goes improper sooner or later.
I bought 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 proud of the way it got here out – however the one factor I’ve realized is that when you end one mission, you discover forty-five extra to do, so we’re already below contract to color our bed room and do some electrical work in there for a bit of updating as properly, so in case you’re into house stuff, keep tuned for that.
