A Sneak Peek At Our New Kitchen!

We are finally breaking ground on our new home this week!  HALLELUIAH!!! Now that means we’ve been given the green light to get all of our materials chosen, including cabinets and counter tops for the kitchen.  We had these done up at Home Depot and even ended up almost $1,600 BELOW our cabinetry allowance!  Now we’re trying to work that same magic on the counter tops and flooring.

You’ll have to imagine our invisible pantry door on that corner wall, and our fridge will be a 3 door, but it’s close enough for a rendering.  We will also have a more mid-tone variegated flooring and a warm tan/beige wall color, so the contrast won’t be so pronounced.

I left these two adjacent to give you a panorama effect of the back and side wall.  What’s scary great is that we’re such planners we already know what each cabinet shall hold!

And all of the drawers and cabinets are quiet close!  *Cue heavenly music*  Depending on when our builder orders them we may also get a free double cutlery divider in one of our drawers and roll-out bins rather than shelves in a few too!  Now we have to sit and count out how many knobs and handles we have to order.  We found some pretty ORB style hardware that run about $2.50 each so that shouldn’t break the bank either.

Lighting.  Check.  Cabinets.  Check. Counter tops.  In Progress.  Flooring.  Still the budget buster, final decision TBD.

  1. Your kitchen designs are beautiful!

    If you’re looking for a great countertop surface, I’d recommend quartz. Quartz counters have the look of granite and marble, but are less costly and more functional. Quartz is more durable than granite and marble, does not require sealing and is very stain resistant.

    Cambria makes gorgeous palettes and offers a lifetime warranty on its countertops.

    1. We actually are looking at quartz or Silestone for the kitchen, but have to fit it within our builder’s allowance which is tougher than we thought it would be. Luckily, we found a local vendor here in Alaska that might be able to make it happen. 🙂
