Win This House! The Kitchen Reveal

Win This House! The Kitchen Reveal

Whenever we get the chance to restore an old home we love working on the kitchen because kitchens are basically the entire life center of a home. Everyone tends to congregate in the kitchen sooner or later because that's where the magic happens, right?

Right.

What happened in this kitchen turned out to be pretty freakin' magical indeed. From the custom stained glass windows (patterned after the original wallpaper sample we found during the demolition process) to the floor to ceiling subway tile wall, the charcoal cabinets YOU chose, the waterfall peninsula, the pendant lights. It's everything we could have hoped for and has all the components to make whoever wins this house extremely happy...we hope (insert prayer hands emoji)!!

If you haven't seen the kitchen reveal episode you can find that HERE

At any rate, here's the charcoal kitchen that YOU chose, packed full of all the upgrades a person could ever want. It's all kinds of fancy and functional, two of our very favorite things!

Find all the sourcing details at the end of the post and be sure to keep watching Win This House and enter our sweepstakes to win!

Art In The Kitchen – 5 Things To Consider

Art In The Kitchen – 5 Things To Consider

Art in the kitchen, let's discuss. After featuring this gorgeous image from Chris Barrett Design last week on our Instagram feed, I've been spending an unholy amount of time thinking about it in part because it's beautiful and also because I'm hungry. Someone feed me already!

Considering that the kitchen is a natural gathering point in a home, you think it would be a great place to display some art but for logistical reasons,  some people are hesitant to do that. Even still, I think the kitchen can be a great if unconventional, place to display some art as long as you make a few considerations.

Open Shelving – Is It Right For You?

Open Shelving – Is It Right For You?

Deciding to commit to open shelving can feel a little bit like opening up your underwear drawer for everyone to see. A real risk if you know what I mean.

If you're not the most organized or have any hoarding tendencies whatsoever, open shelves have a way of forcing your hand. You can't just jam stuff in a cupboard and shut the door. No more "out of sight out of mind". There's also the argument that open shelves just give dust and grease a place to settle in and get comfy. This may definitely be true if your shelves are hosting stuff you don't use on a regular basis.

EVEN SO, we're big fans of the open shelving done right (and organized underwear drawers) for a lot of reasons. Adding open shelving in place of more traditional cabinetry can really open up your space and instantly make things feel bigger and brighter. You can count on easy access to your most used kitchen goods and say "bye Felicia" to clunky cabinets and slamming doors.

Do This/Not That: Kitchen Cabinets

Do This/Not That: Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen design is HARD, but one thing that shouldn't be up for debate is whether or not to take your kitchen cabinets to the ceiling. Spoiler alert: we are definitely on team tall cabinets...TAKE THOSE PUPPIES ALL THE WAY UP!

Cabinets that stop short present some challenges. Aesthetically, they just don't look as nice. That open space just acts as a landing place for dust and grease to stack up. Remember every kitchen in the 90's and all the silk plants people used to stick up there? We're talking plastic ivy people, time to tuck that away into the archives of "never again".

What’s To Love About A Waterfall Edge Countertop

What’s To Love About A Waterfall Edge Countertop

Adding a waterfall edge isn't anything new.  Design-wise, I've noticed a huge uptick in their popularity which I think can be partially attributed to how many people are foregoing traditional layouts with separate dining spaces in favor of living areas that are multi-functional. We're talking flow here people, and waterfall edge counters make that transition so smooth.
