Home Plans : Kitchen

Hi everyone!  Today I'm going to be sharing my room plans for my favorite room in the house- the kitchen.

I absolutely love to cook, so finding a kitchen that I liked was a big priority when we were house hunting.  The apartment that I live in now has a tiny kitchen with no counter space and minimal cabinets, so I was excited to have a kitchen where I can actually move around!

While this isn't the biggest kitchen ever, I love the style and the layout.  I'm relieved that I don't have to overhaul the entire room, which could be extremely costly.  It's a great blank canvas, so I'm really excited to add some cosmetic updates!  

Before








 

Projects

- Install under-cabinet lights : This is something that Dan requested, so I'll be adding these ASAP!

- Replace cabinet knobs : The current cabinet hardware is fine, but there are a few missing and I want to revamp the kitchen.  Changing out the hardware is an easy and (potentially) cheap way to change the look of a kitchen!

- Replace faucet : This is another quick and easy way to change up the look of a kitchen!

- Add back splash :  Right now there's no back splash in the kitchen, so I would love to add some.  I'm still deciding on the style and type that I want, so this won't happen right away!

- Organize : I want to do lots of fun organizational projects, like changing all my spices and dry ingredients to canisters.  I also want to add some wall storage to the kitchen (you can see what I have in mind below!)

- Add some greenery : I love when kitchens have lots of plants, so I definitely want to add some in ASAP!

I love the cabinet hardware, and I think the floor would actually make an awesome back-splash!

This is what I have in mind for some wall storage- the Ikea RIMFORSA system looks amazing!

How cool is this tile?!  I'm in love...




We actually have an eat-in kitchen, so make sure you come back next week for my plans for the dining portion of this room!  To check out the other plans I've shared so far, be sure to check out the house plans tag!

  1. I adore those herring bone tiles. They'd be a gorgeous backsplash! I love cooking too so that would be my main focus in the house. It's a great looking space, and you're right needs hardly anything doing to it. Can't wait to see what you do!

  2. oh i love your kitchen! super cute and definitely a blank canvas for you to put your stamp on and all that. i don't hate our kitchen but next time i don't care what it looks like, i just want plenty of counter space. heck, i'd be fine with an 80s oak style kitchen as long as it had plenty of counter space haha

  3. LOVE that backsplash - and the IKEA organization system. I just moved into a new place and IKEA organization is definitely in my future.
