{Kitchen Reno} Design Plan

9 Feb

As important as the structural plan is, let’s be honest, I’m also super excited about the design aspect of the kitchen renovation. Since we’ve been debating this project for years, I debated the cabinet colors and backsplash for just as long. My heart, from the very beginning, wanted white shaker style cabinets. If this was my forever home that’s what I’d do. But it’s not my forever home and I needed to think about re-sale. That’s how the worrying starts. I know what I like, especially when I see it. I don’t, however, know what other people like. Oh, what to do, what to do.

I tried long and hard to talk myself into getting a more traditional wood but, in the end, I just couldn’t do it. If a future potential buyer doesn’t like white cabinets, they probably won’t want to buy my condo and I just have to be OK with that. White kitchens are classic and timeless (well, at least the ones that I like are) and that’s what I want to create. Plus, in a kitchen like ours with no natural light, I think it’s the best way to go. When the time is right to put our condo on the market, we’ll just have to find the buyer that agrees with me!

This is the image from a Better Homes and Garden Kitchen and Bath special that finally convinced me to never look back.

I’ll have more pictures and product resources as things are actually installed but, in the meantime, you can also check out the rest of my inspiration photos on my kitchen Pinterest board. You might even see tiles very similar to the ones in the photo above. ;)
