Since I’ve given you a sneak peek of the bathrooms at the flip it’s only fair I fill you in on what we’ve got in store for the kitchen, right?
The kitchen is basically being flipped upside down and will looking nothing like how it started out, once we’re finished with it. Just like the bathrooms, we’re aiming for a kitchen design that is streamlined and non-frilly, without feeling too cold and modern.
As you can see, the modern elements of this kitchen are lots of stainless steel in terms of appliances, cabinet hardware and the kitchen faucet, all of which also have very clean lines. The beautiful faucet was provided by Kohler and I am completely in love with it – to me it’s the epitome of “modern classic,” as it’s a timeless bridge design that has been updated in a brushed stainless finish with a modern profile. It’s just about the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen! We’ve opted for a sparkly glass subway tile in crisp white for the backsplash, and were lucky enough to have it provided by Subway Tile Outlet, and it’s also a great mix of classic and modern since it’s a traditional subway tile updated in a contemporary glass finish. It’s shown in a linear pattern in this mood board, but we’re actually planning to lay the tile in a brick pattern to add a little more of a traditional feel. The cabinets are a simple profile in a pretty gray color – this is our first time trying anything but white for kitchen cabinets and I’m a bit nervous! After doing 6 white kitchens I think it’s about time we break out of our comfort zone, ha! And finally, the countertops will likely be Bianco Romano granite, like in our 4th flip - it has lots of gray and white with specks of cranberry, and I think it will bring a lot of energy and dimension to the kitchen. Or at least I hope!
What do you guys think? It’s a bit of a departure from our past kitchens – are we getting it right?
