Inspiration for Our Kitchen

I've been sharing lots of updates on the exterior or our house the past few days: new front door, exterior paint job and front door color inspiration. If your new to my blog, a quick reminder our home is going under a huge rebuilding transformation after a fire to our home last July. As many of you may already know before the fire, we were in the midst of starting our kitchen transformation: just installed new counters and bought a new five burner gas range! I loved the range and I only had a chance use it a handful of times and never got a change to even blog about it. But that's life this experience has been life changing and has helped my grow as a person

So now its time to move things back in side for a bit and focus on the inspiration I used for our kitchen design. Basically I wanted to design a mini dream kitchen on a mini budget. 

My Mini Dream Kitchen Wish List: White Wood Cabinets that go all the way to the ceiling. A mixture of glass door cabinets & solid cabinet doors. Stainless steal wall mount hood, White Subway tile and floating shelves.Light kitchen counters in either Solid Surface or Quartz & 'U' Shape kitchen instead of our old L shape with a floating fridge layout. Not to much to ask for, right? 

I love glass doors in kitchens, they bounce so much light around and dress up the look of everyday dishes & glass

I love this snapshot of this kitchen. lovely wall mount hood, subway tile that goes all the way up and floating shelves. I love the how well glass doors and floating shelves work together! I would love floating shelves for cake stands, pretty mixing bowls & cookbooks.

U Shape Kitchen with lots of storage and tall upper cabinets.

A little birdie told me our kitchen may be getting installed late this week (Friday maybe?) or early next week. I can't wait to see the kitchen all come together! 

What's on your dream kitchen mini or large wishlist?
