I’ve been over on Pinterest, pinning and sorting through kitchen images like a mad woman as we hustle to make our design choices for the reno. Yesterday we ordered our countertops – Silestone quartz in Marengo
I was tempted to go with a black option they had, but it was $30 dollars more per square foot. yikes! I also saw this picture, which convinced me that the dark grey was the right choice.
We went with a basic ‘eased’ edge profile, which is the most simple option. It’s just a slightly softened square edge. We put Silestone in our old house and I love it. It’s totally impervious to stains and requires no sealing or maintenance, like granite. Again, Home Depot came through with a great deal so we saved about $400 bucks – bringing the cost of the counters and install to $2k. Now we just need to get a sink, faucet, new hardware, a garbage disposal, and a new pendant for over the sink.
and I’m torn between these two light fixtures…
I think the top one will coordinate better with the dining room fixture, but I love that edison bulb. Both from Home Depot.
I love these pulls that are on sale from Restoration Hardware.
We’ve decided to go with a clean white tile backsplash, but I’m debating about whether or not to do a greyish grout that would highlight the tile.
I’m leaning towards the white grout. Since we’ll be installing the tile, I don’t want to highlight any of our mistakes! I do love that the darker grout would hide stains though…
I feel like our plan is coming together but of course there will be tons of other things that come up. Hopefully we’ll get a delivery date for the cabinets so we can plan the demo and prep work. I can’t wait!
Hope you all are well.
