I’m so pleased to share that our kitchen and powder room reno is lastly full! The mission took about six and a half weeks and whereas I can actually say I felt each hour of that six and a half weeks, it was value it.
Let’s begin with the powder room. It’s a small area and whereas I really feel uncomfortable going huge and daring, I used to be simply wanting a change – so huge and daring I went. I received this pink wallpaper and Dan put in it. It is vitally pink however I’m actually into it!
Above you’ll be able to see the earlier than and after video I made on Instagram. The world was superb – however we have been excited to offer the area somewhat replace. We did new flooring, cupboards and counter tops, new range with conversion to electrical, new sink and tap, and new rest room within the powder room.
We stored the pedestal sink we already had and swapped out the fixtures. Initially I didn’t love the black and wished I’d gone with gold or a lightweight bronze, but it surely’s rising on me. I received this mirror, and added a inexperienced hand towel to the gold towel holder I received as properly.
I really like that the blue island matches the blue of the eating room.
I really like the feel of the tile – it is porcelain and designed for interiors but it surely kind of jogs my memory of blue stone. I selected it as a result of Buckles doesn’t do properly on slick or polished tile (which is why you see an enormous runner within the earlier than video) – and he has no downside with this in any respect!! I debated concerning the blue island – whether or not to do a White Island and blue backside cabinetry, or every little thing white – and I’m actually glad I ended up with this. We additionally did cupboards as much as the ceiling, which provides us a lot extra space for storage and in addition makes the room really feel greater and brighter to me.
For home equipment, I stored the identical fridge and dishwasher I already had, and we made the choice to change from electrical to fuel, and I used to be capable of finding a 30” Wolf vary in inventory at a close-by equipment store. When it arrived, it appeared to have been dropped (!!!!) and was dented, however a Wolf rep got here out and inspected it carefully, and changed every bit that wanted changing and stated we needs to be good to go. I used it right this moment and it really works completely, however fortunately it’s underneath guarantee, if something goes mistaken sooner or later.
I received these handles, which I cherished as a result of it picked up each the gold and the gray – and so they have a little bit of texture to them that I felt regarded cool.
I’m so proud of the way it got here out – however the one factor I’ve realized is that when you end one mission, you discover forty-five extra to do, so we’re already underneath contract to color our bed room and do some electrical work in there for somewhat updating as properly, so in case you’re into dwelling stuff, keep tuned for that.
