With our second home build underway, I find myself spending countless hours getting swept away in the bottomless pit of gorgeous Pinterest kitchens. Gold hardware is making a comeback and I am here.for.it.🤩My favorite are the brushed or matte golds like gold champagne mixed with white or gray cabinets and light hardwood flooring. Here are a few of my favorite kitchens!
I love the light cabinets mixed with the marble subway tile backsplash, light counters and gold accents in this kitchen. The stainless and gold hood is such a beautiful statement piece and the lights above the island are perfection (I’ll definitely be looking into this style for our build)! Here is the most affordable version that I was able to find. It comes in multiple shade and metal color options.
The fact that the island also has drawers and cupboards on the back wide is such a bonus too; think of all that storage space! It does however make it more difficult for people to gather around the island on barstools though since the counter does not hang over the cabinets providing a bar space. Which do you think is better: extra cabinets or bar space?!
This is another one of my top favorite kitchens at the moment..do you see a theme here?😅Very similar lights above the island, marble backsplash (but this is one piece versus as a subway tile) and gold hardware of course. I am also a fan of this hood that matches the cabinets. I do like how the backside of this island provides storage and also a bar overhang; the best of both worlds on my opinion. What do you think of this white kitchen?
These kitchens are all very similar but I love the unique touches and differences in each. Trying to figure out how to incorporate a bit of each into our own to find the right balance for the look and functionality as well as budget we will be working with. I love the look of that cute class cabinets balancing each side of the gorgeous hood cabinet but also don’t want to be cleaning the glass all the time. Have you had glass faced kitchen cabinets before? If so, let me know how they hold up against dust and everyday life!
If you know me, you know I love charcuterie and cheese boards. I love how they incorporated them into the decor in this kitchen; it makes it so warm and inviting! Here are a few of my favorite charcuterie and cheese board options.
The rustic wood beams add so much character and warmth to this kitchen. We had wood beams in our last build and absolutely loved them; such a statement piece. I am also a huge fan of this single basin, apron front farmhouse sink. We had this one in our last home and I plan to purchase the same one for our next kitchen. We had the white and it also comes in bisque. For our last build I spent hours searching for single basin farmhouse sinks that were affordable and had good customer reviews and this fireclay one beat out all of the others; highly recommend it!
