You might want to go ahead and pop a Xanax before you read this.
Let's start from the beginning...
Doug had I have been discussing a kitchen renovation for about a year and half (prior to closing on our house). For the past couple weeks a funky smell has been coming from our refridgerator- a mix of shrimp, oysters, and death. We took everything out- scrubbed, baking soda'd the ish out of it, and gave everything a nice long soak. The smell still will not go away. Since we have been planning on renovating the kitchen we decided why not start now.
Here is the contents of the fridge getting a bath.
After gathering all my thoughts and pinning for about 5 hours straight I am just confused.
My first thoughts go to a white lacquer kitchen with marble counter tops. Issue #1- Appliances. I would need to skip the stainless steel, which is no problem because I am kind of over it. This could hurt the resale. Evidently, if you live in Raleigh NC and do not have stainless steel and granite counter tops you might as well not have remodeled your kitchen. Issue #2- Brass hardware is difficult to find and we are on a budget.
Option numero dos. I am still getting my white kitchen but going a little more traditional. It does make me sad that I am not incorporating any gold. I love gold and white. The black counter tops are safe. No etching or stains to worry about.
The floors are about the only thing I am 100% certain about.
Add this and call it a day.
Unfortunatley, this is our first house and I do not plan on it being our last. So if you were buying our house what are you looking for in a kitchen?
