In this post I really want to breakdown what we still have left to finish in the kitchen, since there still is a list. And also provide links/information on where everything is from.
- To start out we still need to putty the holes, caulk the window trim and finish it off by priming and painting it.
- When we installed the floating shelves, they were so heavy and difficult to get in that it actually made a lot of the screws from the drywall pop through. All of those will have to be patched and touched up with paint.
- Final plumbing has to be done. The kitchen faucet is just setting in the counter hole. It is not a functioning faucet. We also will have a pot filler that needs to be installed above the stove.
- Pendant lights will need to be installed.
- Final electrical needs to be done, lightswitch and outlet plates.
- Dishwasher needs to be installed as well as have the cabinet front installed to it.
- Range/Stove Installed
- Ceiling Vent Covers
- Hood/Vent installed- Which slides up in that white build out between the main cabinets.
- Trim kit needs to be installed around fridge/freezer
- Last, but not least the backsplash needs to be put in.
Paint: Ultra Pure White by Behr Paint in a Satin Finish , We decided to go with a satin finish to help with fingerprints etc. The more sheen a paint has the easier it typically is to wipe off. I prefer the look of flat paint a majority of the time, but need the convenience of having a sheen.
Floor: Impala, from Urban Floor
Cabinets: White Rift Sawn White Oak, using THIS stain. Cabinets were ordered custom from a family friend- but I know they can be ordered from most cabinet shops if requested.
Cabinet Hardware: Brandt knob (86695) in Satin Brass Finish, 1 1/4″ size
Counters: Sequal Quartz Bianco Venatino
Sconce Lights: I love that these are super affordable, but give a high end look. Buy HERE.
Pendants: My indecisiveness came in full force with this one, but I know that the cement look is going to give the perfect earthy, minimalistic feel that I want. So here is what I finally ended up choosing and I am in love!
Dishwasher: We went with a panel ready dishwasher to help keep a really clean look with our cabinets.
Stove/Range: We wanted to have something with a little more presence. A typical range/stove is 30″ wide, this one is 36″ and definitely gives more of an upgraded feel without having a major price tag along side it.
Faucet: Kingston Brass provides super high quality and I wanted nothing less in this kitchen. I love that this faucet nod that it gives to vintage, but that it still has a modern overall feel.
Pot Filler: We matched the faucet, and got the same style and finish (brushed nickel). It’s also offered in several other finishes. Buy HERE.
Farmhouse Sink: In my opinion this sink is perfect. Has a high divider and I love the clean apron front.
Backsplash: I have been obsessed with Chloe tile from Bedrosian Stone and Tile FOREVER. We used the green version in our powder bath, but for the kitchen we are going with the white. It is more of an off white and has tons of variation of shades throughout the tiles.
