Kitchen Remodeling....All Of The Decisions!

Decisions, Decisions...So many kitchen remodel decisions!

Choose a counter top....Choose a backsplash....



Choose a cabinet style


......Choose a sink and faucet.....


Knobs or handles...Which handles....


.....Which knobs......And which way to have the doors open.......Do I want glass doors?


....Lighting.....


What do you want in the cabinets....Spice rack...Lazy susan?


...Appliances...Keep the old ones or get new ones...


Well...I am almost to the end of all my decision making and I'm so happy with how it is all turning out.  There is not one thing I would change.  

I'm in the process of doing the backsplash myself...A great way to save money and not a difficult Do it Yourself job!

One of my readers said "It must be fun doing projects for yourself"  ....It is!!

Happy Creating
Carol

Oh your kitchen is really coming along nicely. Kudos to you for doing part of the work yourself. Thanksgiving dinner at Carol's this year???

I'm sure it will be beautiful. I always avoid using knobs on the lower cabinets because I always catch my pockets on the knobs and end up whipping open the drawer. The joys of being short!!

Your new kitchen will be very lovely I am sure! I think decisions are always difficult to make. Sounds like you are happy with your choices. Nancy

I know how you feel it can be totally overwhelming. I always think about people who actually build their own house, and have to pick everything from the switch plates to the lighting to the floors, it's really never ending. I had trouble just picking stuff for our remodeled basement and bathroom. So glad to hear that you are happy with it all, that's the goal, isn't it?
Handy girl you are, doing the backsplash yourself!

How exciting! But, I can imagine that all those decisions can be hard sometimes. It's looking good so far! :-)

It's so nice when the decisions are made and you can relax a bit. I can't wait to see the finished product which I know I'll love!

Kathy said...

I'm looking forward to the big reveal and bravo to you for taking on the backsplash!

One of the hardest places to remodel in a home is the kitchen. No matter if you are starting from scratch or remaking. Can't wait to see yours.

So many decisions and so easy to over think it all. Love all your choices so far.

Oh I'm with you ... I love to have something new but I hate the disruption and all the decisions!! Looking forward to see the finished look!

What excitement! I remember all of the decisions we had to make when we built. But it's not overwhelming if you go into it with a sense of adventure!

sandy said...

What fun! Those are decisions I don't mind making! Can't wait to see the final reveal!

Kelley said...

SOO excited for you, Carol! Can't WAIT for the reveal! I can imagine you're saying that very thing yourself!

Carol, I cannot wait to see it all done! So exciting!! Have you ever seen what Holly over at Down To Earth Style did for her own DIY back splash? She did it with spackle and paint and I hope to one day be able to replicate it myself. So cool! Have a good night! ~ Jamie

Carol, I know it will be beautiful! I plan on adding tile to our kitchen soon so you can give me some pointers.
