Kitchen Planning

We're been living in our new house for three weeks and I wasted no time getting started on our kitchen renovation. The wall between the dining room and the kitchen has been torn down, another wall with two doorways has been made into one. Now for the fun part--designing the kitchen!

I found Pinterest invaluable for kitchen ideas. I print out the photos I like and keep them in a notebook that I can carry around with me when I'm shopping for cabinets. Here are some of my inspiration photos with some ideas that I hope to incorporate in our new kitchen.

I plan on doing grey base cabinets and white uppers. I'm also adding open shelving to keep things light and open and also save money!

Benjamin Dhong designed this kitchen--the contrast of dark and light is so dramatic.

Why not mix the counter tops? These are stone and butcher block.


Here are other great ideas I "pinned": putting the outlets under the cabinets instead of on the back splash, adding extra shelves in a cabinet for cookie sheets and large platters, paper towels tucked under the kitchen sink, great lighting from Schoolhouse Electric.
