Last week I was all about purging and cleaning and the kitchen was definitely on the list. I thought it time to spruce up this space with some spring touches and snap a few fresh pics of our kitchen since it’s been over a year since I did so. I get a lot of questions about our kitchen, especially about the appliances and the countertops and how they’ve held up over time. Now that we’ve lived in this space for almost six years, I’ll try to provide some answers to those FAQs.
As for the spring touches, greens and blues are my favorite colors, so when I spied these little striped pots at Lowes last week for $3 each I brought two of them home to sit in the garden window.
The bay window is wood and we ordered it from Jeld-Wen when we built the kitchen – it brings a ton of light into the space. That faucet is Price Pfister from Home Depot. Our kitchen is west facing and because of that we don’t get a lot of morning light, but in the afternoon on a sunny day it’s the place to be. Plants thrive in the window, and I’ve grown just about everything here from herbs to succulents.
The cabinets were semi-custom by Kemper, they’ve held up really great over the years and I only have to wipe them down about once a month or so. I’m still loving the off-white color which is officially called “Toasted Almond” by the company but the closest paint color matches are “Floral White" by Benjamin Moore and "Ivory Dust" by Valspar.
