My Kitchen Remodel: The Phases

November 16, 2012 — 5 Comments

My kitchen is small. It is basically a glorified galley kitchen but that works for me because I live alone and if I cook it’s just for me. When I was deciding to buy this house the kitchen was a non-issue because while everything in the kitchen outdated it wasn’t outrageously so. The appliances are white and the cabinets are original and the countertops/backsplash/floor are beige… nothing crazy going on. When I moved in a new I would change things but the first phase was going to be paint/decorating.


Yeah, it wasn’t really what I was going for. The paint color was way more tan than I thought it would be. I was going for more light grey but it ended up being the exact same color as the backsplash and countertop. Not cool.


Much better.

Next up, Phase Two:

It may be hard to see in this picture but the floor has changed. My next big project is to replace the old peeling linoleum with cork. I’m so excited! I’m thinking it will happen in January so stay tuned.

This is the cork floor I want, it’s Lisbon Cork in Rossio. It’s hard to tell from this picture but is the exact same color of my hardwood floors so they will blend in perfectly.

Phase Three:

The backsplash and counter tops have got to go.

If you looked past the fancy Pellegrino bottles you can see that the backsplash is 12′ floor tiles. Cost effective but not so cute.

I haven’t decided for certain what finishes I want but I’m toying with butcher block counter tops and a white subway tile backsplash. Kind of like this:

I'm a single female homeowner who loves all things interior decorating. Especially if it involves thrifting.
