kitchen remodel: inspiration

were getting closer to occupying our little mcm home and that mean closer to our kitchen remodel project. it looks like we are closing on oct. 11! one week away, friends.

when planning for the kitchen i began by gathering images as inspiration for what i had in mind.

shockingly i love white, all white kitchens with carrara or calacutta marble. after some research it seems that the marble, while it occupies most kitchen dreams, is not the best choice for a space that would see the wear of someone who has children, enjoys wine, or actually uses their kitchen. so we are still debating countertops and searching for alternatives. for cabinets we are going with ikea again because it is affordable, well made, and fairly easy to install. in keeping with the mid century design of the house we are incorporating some custom wood door fronts, floating shelves, and a custom wood panel on the peninsula from semihandmade. we are switching to a gas range and upgrading on our appliances, going with the pro line from kitchenaid! we will be tearing out the tile floor currently occupying the kitchen and installing wood floors to match those on the rest of the first floor.

the plans are coming together and i can't wait to get started. any ideas on countertops are welcome...
