We’re moving. Have I mentioned we’re moving? Probably not here since I never blog, but its all I talk about on Instagram and Facebook. Part of getting our house ready to sell was updating our kitchen. You wouldn’t think it needed much, considering that we built our house in 2008, but we wanted to make it more appealing to new buyers. And now it is bee-you-ti-ful. Still not my dream kitchen, but I’m not staying here so it doesn’t have to be
First, a before. To see how far we’ve come!
And the after!
New granite counters. I do not recommend the company we used (Discover Granite, based in Manassas). The company had serious communication issues and terrible customer service. The installation was fine, but I can’t get over terrible service, delays, and lack of communication. It was beyond stressful dealing with them.
But man, are they pretty.
We removed the window treatment and it is SO BRIGHT in here now! So much light!! Tyler also installed hard-wired under cabinet lighting with dimmers. Now that light bounces off the white counters and backsplash and its so beautiful in the evening.
Love the mix of white and warm wood.
Herringbone subway tile backsplash with light gray grout. My favorite part of this kitchen!
Sink is from Lowes, the Giagni Fresco pull-down kitchen faucet, and we LOVE it. Will definitely re-purchase for next home. Link here.
Stools are Threshold Industrial Barstools from Target. Link here.
In addition to the new lighting (Lowes), we redid the pantry. Originally a crappy bi-fold door, its now a solid french door with frosted glass panels, interior lighting, and a solid handle. The wobbly wire shelves were replaced with solid wood shelving.
I’ll try to post more pictures of other rooms as we wrap them out. As of now, the professional photographer is coming out Friday to photograph the house. Anyone looking to buy in Bristow, VA?!
