There really is no better way to decide on how to redesign your own kitchen than to seek inspiration from others. It's highly recommended and when you start collecting inspiration photos, 9 times out of ten you start seeing a recurring trend (not in a bad way) that suits you. For my up coming kitchen project, there are a few things I know. A.) I have to work with the existing cabinetry and existing footprint B.) Light building my be required and I may have to sweet talk my husband and possibly my Father-in-law. C.) Counter tops, and this kills me to type this, are going to have to stay
So after quite some time collecting pictures and putting an idea book together at Houzz, here are the things that I lean towards.
I like the dark modern cabinetry lowers and white uppers. Cool.
The black cabinetry lowers, white uppers, awesome bamboo blinds, and check out the corbels under the uppers. Neat right? Replace that strange guy with Justin and I could move right in!
Again with the contrast of black and white
Ikea is known for it's inexpensive kitchen solutions and if I had one close to me, Lord help me. I like the lighting, open shelving, countertop, rolling work surface, the stools in the background, the cake in the foreground. This is a great one.
I cannot have an idea file without Candice. We all know she rocks, and she totally rocked this kitchen. There is too much to list with things that I like about this kitchen, so the only thing I don't like about it are the bar stools. Everything else is splendid.
OK, I know, I'm dreaming too big here right? All of these spaces and the spaces in the idea book are just beyond the stars. They are. But I can dream right? Marble, stainless steel farm sink....
I will take inspiration from all of these beautiful kitchens and shape them into something that is for me, for my family, and for this house.
Take a look at this idea book. I think my favorite is from Tommy Smythe
