Project : Kitchen



                                                Project Kitchen : Complete
This has been THE longest reno. Not weeks, not months but years! We started renovation about 3 years ago and it has been a slow process for obvious reasons : TIME & MONEY. Kitchen renovations are not cheap but we need manage to save a lot by doing 90% of the work ourselves , it just took a little longer. The only that in the kitchen that stayed was the kitchen boxes , everything else got updated.

SOURCES : 


Wall Color ––– Nothing that I love more than a bright and airy kitchen so we lightened up with room with a coat of White Metal by Behr.

Cabinets ––– The cabinet boxes were solid and in great shape so we kept them , painted them and added new shaker doors from Cabinet Door World and had a local painter spray them. SHOP AFFORABLE CUSTOM CABINETS HERE

Backsplash ––– Originally we didn't have any sort of backsplash besides paint . This was one of the very first improvements we made. The marble subway tile was super affordable from Lowe's but makes perfect background for the kitchen.SHOP TILE HERE

Moulding ––– Just Mould It. My life motto. We added moulding from the top of the cabinets to about an 1 inch from the ceiling, all around the base of the cabinets and also on the island. Moulding adds that custom look that we were lacking.

Hardware ––– When we moved in there wasn't any hardware the cabinets. I feel like hardware is like jewelry for cabinets so of course we had to add some.  We went with sleek pulls from Hickory Hardware –– various sizes from the Skylight collection. SHOP SKYLIGHT COLLECTION HERE


Lighting –––We had to get the kitchen LIT! I found this company on Instagram , LighingDirectNJ. They are a privately sourced lighting company which means they are able to find you exactly what you're looking for , for a fraction of the big box store price! You can contact them on IG , E-mail or by phone.  @lightingdirectnj ––– 732-552-7518 ––– lightingdirectnj2@gmail.com


For the island lighting , we wanted something timeless but unique - love the traditional vibe these lanterns give off but the cubed crystals add the touch of glam and interest.








The Dining room fixture is what I like to call understated glam... for this room at least! The dining room has a very modern , minimal feel but we also added traditional picture frame moulding to the walls so I feel like this fixture helps marry two together! Although it looks super luxe it was SO affordable , like sooooo affordable! You guys have to check out LightingDirectNJ!



*The "mood" lighting in the cabinets and above are from amazon! The are battery operated and  come with a remote which is super cool and are under $30 for a six pack!SHOP "MOOD" LIGHTS HERE


Appliances ––– All of our appliances were mixed matched  which isn't always a bad thing but it pulled your eye in different directions and made the kitchen feel busy. All of the new appliances are by Whirlpool and we are loving them!


Sinks ––– We had our solid surface sink replaced by Surface Savers LLC. We went with Stainless ( Emoderndecor.com) for prep sink and Fireclay (QualityBath.com) for the main sink .


Facets ––– Sleek and simple was the theme. The main facet is a touch-facet which is super helpful when you're cooking and don't want to fuss with food all over your handles. I honestly wasn't sure how i was going to end up liking it but it's just tap and rinse now and I've grown to love it! SHOP FAUCET HERE


Flooring ––– Since the flooring continues into the dining room , I though I'd show you a sneak peek of what we have so far . Were  almost done and barely done at the same time . Basically what I'm trying to say is that we've done a lot already but we still need to furnish the room and decor a bit more but were loving the direction that things are going.
  We went with Luxury Vinyl Plank for 3 reasons; the price point is on-point , wide-plank wood look, extremely easy to clean ( water-resistant) AKA : kitchen friendly! I wanted a grey hue in the flooring but not solid grey , I love the classic-ness of the lighting beige wood and this one had it all.

Countertops––– Marble! J/K! Could have fooled you though, right?? They are actually... Epoxy! It was a DIY project we did about a month ago.

  I hope you guys love what we've done as much as we do!
