Even though we're getting things prepared for demolition on our back porch
and the building of the new screened porch
my mind is still on our kitchen.
Last week I showed some pictures of what our kitchen looks like now.
As I mentioned...we haven't done much to it because we knew we would be doing
some renovations one day.
I really don't want a major renovation...been there done that in another house.
This is a little farm cottage in the middle of 'no where' so spending a lot of money on a kitchen renovation just wouldn't be practical.
So we'll do a cosmetic reno that will include a beadboard ceiling with a plain crown molding and a small crown molding along the top of the cheap cupboards that were already in the house. Those I will paint. The walls we may just leave but re-do the trim work around some of the doors and the window. The floor...I'm not sure what I'm going to do there. The counter top will be changed too....something lighter for sure!
Everything will have a fresh coat of paint.
One thing I MUST have is a solar tube installed for the light I'll loose because of the screened porch being built right out the sunny east facing kitchen window.
I really don't want to loose my sunshine but it will be worth it in the end.
I'm hoping the end result will be light and airy and have lots of country cottage charm.
Here are a few inspirational pictures that I've found.
We certainly don't have the archatectural details this kitchen has but I like the 'feel' of it.
This is a cute kitchen. I like the red but I don't think I'd want THAT much of it.
I love the feel of this kitchen. I wish I had my country sink we left in our last house we renovated.
You can see pictures HERE
This is the look I'm leaning towards.
I love that green and I think it would make our kitchen light and airy and would blend in with the rest of the house colors.
Here is another picture of the same kitchen.
I think white subway tiles for the back splash would look great.
So what do you think about this green kitchen?
I'd LOVE to hear what you have to say.
