Farmhouse Chic Kitchen Makeover
I wear many hats as a Realtor, designer, home builder and remodeler,
and I am always working with clients to help them find and/or create their dream home.
It can be difficult, especially for first time homebuyers and in this current seller's market.
This lovely couple was looking for their first home.
After searching high and low without much luck, I proposed the idea of remodeling a home to make it meet their needs-
they went for it!
We did remodel this entire property, but today I want to start by talking about this beautiful kitchen.
This home was a great find because it already had an open layout for the kitchen, dining room and family room.
Unfortunately, this home had not been cared for in a very long time.
The colors made it look dark and drab, not to mention the mismatched flooring and cabinets that were falling apart.
It took some time and thoughtfulness to create a budget-friendly and beautiful space that included all of their desires.

White Shaker Cabinets
We LOVE white shaker cabinets.
They have a classic look that can’t be beat.
The popularity also means you can find these for a really amazing price.
If you're looking for a preassembled, ready to install cabinet, these Aspen White Shaker cabinets make any kitchen look bright and open.
We always select soft close doors and drawers to keep the cabinets in great shape, as it avoids them slamming.
We made a point to have drawers next to the range because we love the accessibility of storing pots and pans in drawers.
Another must-have for them was a pullout waste container to keep their garbage out of sight in the beautiful new space.
Marble and Butcher Block Countertops
For their dream kitchen, they wanted marble countertops on the perimeter.
Marble is a gorgeous choice but definitely comes with plenty of maintenance.
We often talk about our love of quartz (What We Love Quartz Countertops) because they have a marble look but are low maintenance!
With so much white in this kitchen, it was important to them to keep the space looking warm.
The walnut butcher block countertop is a stunning addition to the space.
It offers a large amount of workspace and if it gets worn, stained, or scratched, it can be sanded down to look new again.
For the backsplash they selected a white 3"x 6" subway tile.
We paired it with white grout to keep it looking clean and bright.
I personally love white on white and feel the texture of the shiny tile against the matte grout makes a perfect combination.
Subway tile is classic and also one of the most affordable tile choices you can make.
The most affordable place to get your subway tile is at a big box store.
