I'm foolishly letting myself believe that Emily and HGTV will not only give us a fab living/dining room, but also take down half of the wall between the dining area and our kitchen AND re-do our kitchen because if they knocked down that wall they'd have to. She already told me this will most likely NOT happen, but I am a fool and like to believe that things will happen even if they probably won't. I'm optimistic to a fault. My husband is the exact opposite.
I want a kitchen that is kinda modern, but kinda traditional and really white. I heart the one above SO freaking much.
If I had to "sell" HGTV on giving us a kitchen make-over, I would tell them that butcher block countertops are much less expensive than granite, but super beautiful. I would also say that open shelving instead of upper cabinets in all the rage right now and it would be super inexpensive. I would also tell them we'll buy our own appliances (aka put them on credit at Sears), so that would cut down on some of the cost as well.
I might even be tempted to buy all white dishes from somewhere cheap like the dollar store or Target to make the shelves look all crisp and clean.
This layout is very close to ours. There are just two problems: this one has a half wall bar thing where we have a whole wall closed off thing AND our laundry area is where the open shelving and fridge are. I really want that laundry wall closed off for more kitchen space and the laundry to be its own room, but that requires way too much reno :(
These shelves seem like they would be super cheap. I heart them. And those blue bowls.
I also really want a chalkboard wall somewhere in the kitchen. It would be so cool to write menus, lists, and notes on the walls!!
Hello farmhouse sink. Nice to meet you. Want to come in for a drink? Bring your friend white subway tile backsplash with you.
What does your dream kitchen look like? Am I crazy for hoping for something that will never be?
