Hey Lovelies, as I’ve been talking about home remodeling in a few past posts, I have currently been in the middle of a huge kitchen remodel! After a couple of months of work, the project is finally finished! Thank goodness!
My kitchen was pure 1995, with yellowish-beige cabinets, a pinkish laminate countertop (that unfortunately shows up throughout the whole house – which will certainly be updated at a later point!), and super out-dated laminate flooring (which they had put over tile for some reason!) Luckily, I brought my nice LG stainless steel fridge from my old place, and the house came with an LG stainless steel dishwasher and Stainless Steel GE ovens.
The kitchen remodel started with new black quartz, with a gorgeous sparkle countertops, replacing the super old-fashioned laminate countertops. Once in, the yellowish cabinets were painted white, and replaced with new hardware. Then I went nuts with the tile, to give it a much more modern look. I realize it might be a bit too much tile, but I wanted the whole idea to be, “WOW!” when you first turn the corner out of the entry way and see the kitchen. After all, the kitchen is the focal point of the home, and for a modern-style home (which is my decor style all the way), I wanted the kitchen to reflect that. I In my new kitchen, you will find tile lined around the bar and island, as well a pretty huge backsplash, which indeed gives my home a much more modern feel.
The tile is a new cracked grass multi-colored black, white, and gray tile that is really having a moment right now. I used this tile to bring the black countertops and white cabinets together, as well as the new gray luxury vinyl flooring that was going in the kitchen as well as replacing the rest of the old, coming apart, badly scratched by my super hyper border collie, flooring on my whole main level.
So here are the before pictures:
