I designed nothing in here because it felt like a losing battle against poor quality cabinets and finishes that just weren't us.
I never thought these words would escape my mouth, but the kitchen is now my favorite room in the house. (That doesn't mean I'll start cooking though)
I gave the room a fresh coat of paint, we replaced the cabinets and lighting, reused our previous countertops, and added a tile backsplash. As one of my favorite completing things in the room- the backsplash was extremely cost-effective, coming in at only $150 total!
With just a few simple and relatively low cost accessories, the kitchen finally feels complete.
As a bonus, the added cabinets have now allowed us to hide away the microwave, trash, recycling, and all the other ugly stuff that cluttered up the room before.
Even with the bumps we hit in this project, I'm so happy with the results!
So, tell me, what do you think? Is it what you were expecting to see? Better? (I hope) Any tips on photographing a room that gets bright direct morning sun and bright indirect afternoon sun?
