Sarah Miller's Kitchen White Cabinets, Black Island with Farmhouse deatils

My Home | Kitchen Renovation

I love a good project, and when we moved into our home almost 4 years ago, there were plenty (like the entire house) for us to do. The kitchen was the first large project that we took on, and boy did it need it. The exterior of our house is a white home with black shutters a very traditional southern style home, and I wanted to flow the white clean aesthetic into the interior. We wanted to update the kitchen without breaking the bank so we decided to paint the cabinets, replace hardware, replace appliances, and rip out the dark and awful tile.

 Our kitchen is not that large, but it is the main location that we gather in when we have guests over. I wanted to keep it bright and make the ceilings feel higher since our kitchen sits in the back of the house and does not get much natural light.  We chose a beautiful white herringbone marble tile and took it up to the ceiling so it gave the illusion our ceilings being a lot higher. We also grouted the tile with a black grout for the tile to pop and give it a more eclectic look to fit with my modern farmhouse style.

I wanted to showcase my own personal style while keeping our home cozy and inviting for our kids and family to enjoy. We added in soft touches of wood accents and baskets, jute rugs and potted herbs while adding in a chalkboard wall for a conversation piece and something fun for our kids to enjoy.  

The hardest part about the entire project was not being able to use our kitchen for about a week but I would do it all over again in a second.  I love the way our kitchen turned out and hope you enjoy for a little inspiration on your next projects you may have!
