The Hartland: Kitchen Plans

Kitchen Plans

After going through what seems like a million people to get a good cabinet bid we finally have a cabinet maker yall!

Staying in budget has been the hardest part of this whole remodel (its true what they say, so don't take it lightly!) And with our kitchen being sort of massive for a small home, we had to go over budget in order to fill it up. Lowes and Home Depot (even though I love both for everything else they supply) was coming in at OVER $10,000 for cabinets that weren't even what I wanted.  Aint nobody got time OR money for that!

So, we branched out to a few people off craigslist, a guy that would NEVER email or call back and an amish guy. I knew he would be expensive because they do beautiful work fast  (I thought I'd get lucky) But, no such luck. Finally, we found a guy through a church friend that has done cabinets forever. He came to look at the space and came up with exactly what I wanted! Not only did he keep it in budget but will also do a farmhouse sink cabinet for no extra charge. I heart him.

Here is our basic layout 
Base cabinets
Upper Cabinets/Open shelving

We have a little bit of everything going on here. Pantry, bookshelf on the end of the island, open shelving etc. So pumped.

A few inspirational pics I found for the kitchen helped me make some decisions this last weekend about colors, tile and countertops. I only hope my kitchen turns out as a cute as these.

Basically we are doing white cabinets, subway tile and black countertops. I also have big plans that include using a pop of red & chalkboard paint!!

Drywall goes up this week!! It's starting to feel like a real house now :)

Stay tuned !
