I’m so blissful to share that our kitchen and powder room reno is lastly full! The challenge 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 value 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 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 bathroom within the powder room.
We stored 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, however it’s rising on me. I bought this mirror, and added a inexperienced hand towel to the gold towel holder I bought 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 however it kind 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 thing 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 extra space for storage and likewise makes the room really feel greater and brighter to me.
For home equipment, I stored the identical fridge and dishwasher I already had, and we made the choice to modify from electrical to fuel, 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 each piece that wanted changing and mentioned we ought to be good to go. I used it in the present day and it really works completely, however fortunately it’s below guarantee, if something goes fallacious sooner or later.
I bought these handles, which I beloved as a result of it picked up each the gold and the gray – and so they have a little bit of texture to them that I felt regarded cool.
I’m so proud of the way it got here out – however the one factor I’ve discovered is that when you end one challenge, 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 slightly updating as nicely, so should you’re into residence stuff, keep tuned for that.
