Dear, oh dear, I had no idea how many little decisions I would need to make when we decided to update the kitchen.
I have been having tons of fun picking out little things, but I am struggling making final decisions. So, I thought I would ask you guys what you thought! I love getting your feedback and hearing you opinions on what you think looks best.
I am trying to keep this project as budget friendly as possible, while still getting the look I want.
Sadly, it looks like I may not be able to knock out the wall above the bar. I am really bummed about this as I had my heart set on pendant lights. My contractor said it wouldn’t be worth the cost in his opinion. I have yet to ask exactly what it would be so maybe there is still hope.
So lets start with some fun stuff shall we?
There was never a doubt in my mind that I wanted to go with marble counters, but after my first post I had about 10 emails telling me NOT to get marble. It is horrible upkeep and with kids its just not practical! Ugh, so I am off today to go look at my other options. I have in my head a few that I am leaning towards, but I want to see them in person. Looks like it’s going to be quartz for the win. A few I will be looking at today. Does anyone have this in your kitchen? Do you love it?
Here are some kitchens with quartz that I love.
I have fallen in love with the farmhouse sink, but I have yet to find one with a price I love. The best price I have found is this one
from Lowe’s. The only other option that I like is this one
, and it’s half the price. What would you do, go with the original or save and go with the cheaper one?
Real farmhouse sink
Last on the list today…….faucets. I mean, who knew there were so many choices and who knew how expensive they could be?? I am going to go with polished chrome since that is what the existing hardware already is. I’ve decided the hardware we have now is going to stay. I just updated that a few years ago and since I decided against brass I am going to keep the polished chrome. I found a few options on Overstock that I am leaning towards. Do you guys have a favorite?
