If you’ve been following along with my Kitchen Renovation, you may recall in my last post HERE, when I showed the before photos of my kitchen. (Update: You can now also find the after photos of my finished kitchen HERE!!) At the time I was contemplating one of Home Depots services for updating my Kitchen Cabinets. The services that Home Depot offers include Replace, Reface and Renew. With the Replace service, they remove your old cabinets and replace them with gorgeous new ones. The Reface option, works with the bones of your old cabinets and refaces them with new doors, trim, veneer etc. And the Renew option takes your existing cabinets and refinishes the wood. Well… I’m ridiculously excited to announce that I applied for, and have been chosen for, the Replacement option!!! Woohoo!! I’m so excited to have been selected for this, that I can’t even begin to tell you! It’s like Christmas and my Birthday all rolled up into one, and maybe a few other holidays too! I couldn’t wait to run down to my local Home Depot and pick out the gorgeous new cabinets for our kitchen! Sooo, do you want to see what I picked out?!! I had to go with the Martha Stewart cabinets … yes had to! They are gorgeous and so perfect in every way! I love the simple classic Farmhouse style of them. So timeless and elegant. I can picture displaying some of my Vintage and Antique accessories with these, like my Ironstone pieces, or transferware, or some fun old signs! Here’s another view of the display kitchen. Don’t you love walking through these and seeing all the different finishes and counter tops? I don’t think I’ve ever gone to Home Depot with out talking a little tour through the kitchen area, it just draws me in like a magnet! Martha even put her name in the drawers! Squee! I didn’t opt for a lot of fancy things inside of the drawers, but I did get this double trash bin, that has a spot for trash and another spot for recycling!! How handy is that?!! My husband is pretty excited about that too actually. This is the style of the cabinets that we’re getting, they’re called Ox Hill. This is the color of the cabinets, it’s called Picket Fence. I picked out some Martha Stewart Hardware to go along with the cabinets. Some brushed nickel pulls and knobs. I love the Vintage Style of these! Mr. Fairy and I talked it over and we decided to go all out and get new counter tops and new flooring while we are at it! Since the Home Depot can do all of that too, it just made sense to do it all now, and have them install it all at once. We picked out black Absolute Granite for around the perimeter of the kitchen and we’re going with Silestone in Lyra for the island. I love how the Lyra looks a lot like Carrara Marble, but without all the worry, that you get with real marble. This is our flooring. It’s the same wood floor that we have in our Dining Room, Living Room and Foyer, we decided to extend it into the Kitchen and Laundry Room. The color is called Saddle, it’s a rich dark brown Hardwood flooring. If you’ve ever wondered about the process of having a Kitchen Remodel done, I would highly recommend making an appointment to meet with one of Home Depot’s expert Kitchen Designers. It’s free and such a fun process! This is Mike, he helped me to design my kitchen. I just brought in my measurements, and some pictures of my existing kitchen, picked out my cabinets and he worked his magic to create the perfect Kitchen for our home! Here’s a little peak at his computer. Yes, I’m nosy! I had to check out the program, it was so cool! Mike has been designing kitchen’s for years, he loves his job and he’s won awards for Designer Excellence, so I knew I was in good hands! At the end of the appointment, you get a print out of your new Kitchen to take home with you. Yay! And if you decide to proceed with the Renovation, you can have them come out to your home to take the official measurements. There is a $100 fee for that, but you get that back if you give the go ahead to get the work done. Once the measurements are done, they are sent to your kitchen designer and he makes any adjustments to make sure everything will fit just right! Want more info?
