Kitchen Inspiration

Here’s the thing about escrow. It’s so involved, right? So involved, in fact, that you kind of stop thinking about the house itself and focus on the specifics of closing escrow. Then, as you approach closing (tomorrow, woohooo!), you pretty much have a panic attack because oh my goodness, it’s our HOUSE. We are HOMEOWNERS. We are totally (fiscally) responsible for a home, and all the ups and downs that come with it. I think I’m having a little anxiety right this very minute. Excuse me for a second.

I woke up this morning and D informed me that the demo crew is showing up at 8am on Monday morning. You guys, it’s on. Although the majority of our home renovations will be cosmetic (floors, walls, removing some funky fresh wood paneling), we are doing a complete overhaul on the kitchen. Totally starting from scratch, so I thought I would share my current kitchen inspirations.

Hello, I’m Sarah. I like white kitchens.

    I have the white kitchen with dark wood floors and dark brown granite. It keeps everything nice and bright and make my kitchen look huge. I do have to wipe the cabinets clean each weekend as small children leave their mark behind. Small price to pay but it does force you too keep it clean!

    Just in case you needed another time-waster, er, I mean source of inspiration (here’s looking at you, starts with a “p” ends with inter…ahhh…what? It’s 4am?? Help! Pintervention!?) Houzz.com has thousands of drool-worthy white kitchens. Enjoy/pretend you didn’t see this if you don’t have 10-12 free hours a day xo
