New Cabinets for our Kitchen

They're finally here! We won't be able to have them installed for a month or so, but how cool to actually see them! It's so tempting to rip off all the packaging!

How cool to never lose anything in that corner cupboard again!

The lower cabinets and island are simple panels in a dark brown.

A pull-down space for all my sponges and scrubbies in the sink cabinet!

I can't wait to have room for my plates - two doors are going to be so much more practical than three! No more twisting the plates to get them out!

All of the upper cabinets will be a creamy white beadboard with a light brown glazing (built-in dust!)

Look at all this trim - so glad I don't have to figure out where it all goes. Oh, wait, I probably do - I just won't have to actually attach it myself!

For now I just have to imagine them installed! Everything has been ripped out for a while now and I'm excited to see how the kitchen will feel with an island and actual eating area instead of a cramped u-shaped kitchen. Although, I must say I am enjoying the space with only a sink, dishwasher, and fridge.

Countertops will be next and then figuring out the backsplash. I may have to repaint or save up for lots of tile. I don't really like the tile/wall contrast to the left of the venthood. Of course the tile I like is being discontinued so I will be rethinking the whole plan! Any ideas? Oops - almost forgot stools - counter height - and I haven't even started looking yet.

Sooooo gorgeous Miss Cottage!!
Totally my style too! I've been so into the dark wood lately but still love the shabby chic cream.
Can't wait to see your finished results :)

Just my taste too. I installed dark cherry cabinets and accented with white. The simple shaker style is classic. I can't wait to see how your kitchen gets transformed. My neighbor just installed small glass subway tile that comes in sheets. It's really nice looking against her dark cherry cabinets too. Gives the modern touch to a classic kitchen.

Wow! That's gonna look great. My mom had a corner cabinet like that. We loved spinning it around after she first had it put in. :-)

I absolutely LOVE the beadboard cabinets!!! What an exciting project ahead! It's rough to live in upheaval, but I'm sure you will LOVE it when it's done!!!

Everything looks so nice! I especially like the beadboard. Our kitchen was recently redone, and there were so many decisions to make - countertops, cabinet style, cabinet hardware, kitchen sink, appliances, faucets, colors! I know you'll enjoy it when it's all finished. ::Jill
