So, we had our first appointment to make design selections for the new house. Thankfully, Sam was a trooper for me and Mike was able to make it for the last hour!
We made several decisions, but today I wanted to share with you guys the kitchen selections.
Here our my inspiration images. Seriously, what did people do before Pinterest when building a house 😉
Ok, no real shocker with the black and white. Had it in our last house, loved it, wanted it again.
Cabinets – We’re going with the builder standard cabinets in white on the left. The black island will be the same style as the white cabinet, this is just up here for color.
Back splash – Plain white subway tile with a white grout. Clean and classic. And, I’m actually blown away by this, but the plain ‘ol subway tile (the same ubber cheap tile you get from the home improvement store) is an upgrade. An upgrade people!!! Grrr… So much for that being my stylish and cheap option.
Counters – Like practically everyone, I wanted the look of marble without having to worry about all the bad things that could and would happen to it. The counter sample here is Silestone Lyra. After getting home and checking out more photos of it, I want to see if we can do Silestone Lagoon instead.
Here’s the Silestone Lyra…
and the Silestone Lagoon…
and side by side because it’s impossible to tell from the above pictures…
The Lagoon feels much better to me when I see the photos of them side by side. Not so busy. I’m wondering if that would drive me nuts with the Lyra long term.
And no I didn’t forget! The winners of the Firmoo giveaway are:
Ronnie, Liz Floyd, ~Angie, and Mary Deckert
