Remodeling The Kitchen...What A Job That Is!!!

As some of you know...my hubby and I purchased a 65 year old home last year and we purchased it from a family member. This home was never modernized over the years and needs a lot of work...however, we got it for a fabulous price so we are happy about that! Up until now, we have been doing little remodeling projects but this spring...we will be gutting and remodeling the Kitchen.

For our new kitchen we are thinking about stainless steel appliances, marble counter tops, a customized bar with stools, oak kitchen cabinets and we are thinking about adding Recessed Lighting as we really like that look. The kitchen only has 2 small windows and I am all about having great lighting in the kitchen...after all, the kitchen is the 'heart of the home.'

We found some great bamboo flooring that we are thinking about using on the floor (my choice) or hubby's choice is using gray stone. Not sure what type of flooring we will go with just yet. I picked out a country theme for the kitchen consisting of red & green crocks and some country apples sprinkled in.

In a few weeks I will make another blog post about our kitchen remodeling and will show all of you a few before and after photos! Have a great week!
