The start of our kitchen remodel

When we moved into our house we knew that the kitchen would have to be attacked ASAP. Well a year later and we are ready to begin. Well it won't technically start until after my parents kitchen is complete.

In the meantime we went to A&C Kitchen and Bath and found a deal we couldn't turn down! Someone returned a bunch of cabinets and we are able to get them for less than 50% retail. We then sat down with one of their design professionals and did a preliminary layout. We will still have to order a couple other cabinets, but all in all it really worked out well!

Originally we wanted a white kitchen but running into such a great deal we were willing to compromise. Now we are going with a Hazelnut Maple Slab cabinet. I know it will be so pretty once everything comes together.

<--this is what the color looks like

Here are some inspirational photos.

These cabinets are similar to the ones we are getting.

I love the dark handles!

Love the white subway tiles and the hanging lights.

A couple things we have to think about...

Tile floor or wood?
To move the stove away from the door and loose the corner bottom cabinet? Or leave it as is on the layout?
White subway tile? Or glass light green subway tile?


  1. White subway tile. It's timeless. Personally, I'd go wood, but that's just me. I love how warm it feels. Tile tends to feel cold for me.

  2. From experience, tile is cold cold cold. Wood is much more homey. The designs look fantastic. Good luck! Having been through a kitchen remodel I know it can take a lot out of you but the end result is so worth it!-Kirstin
