Dream Kitchen


If there's one home improvement that we would do, my priority would be our kitchen.  It is so outdated that it really need a face lift so bad.  Sometime in November, we went to a  kitchen and bathroom remodeling company here in our area to find out  how much it would cost to  renovate our  kitchen.  Upon consulting the guy in-charge and  told him what we want to do, the amount  he gave us is a staggering 40 grand.  Holy Smoke! That's almost half if the  the amount of this house is worth.  There's no way we would really pay for that!  So we modified  the design and the agent said that he would get back to us but he never did.  Maybe he realized that we can' really afford their price lol.  Oh well, at least we have  an idea now what to do with our kitchen.  Hubby said that he would try to work on improving our kitchen this year, we will  see. 

But anyway, browsing the beautiful  designs  at Danze website makes me wish that we have a much bigger bathroom at our home.  That is one wish that would probably never realized because the way this house is designed, the bathroom is too small.  That's one reason we built an additional bathroom downstairs, a bigger one.  With our 8 years of living at this house, we have updated some features in our bathroom including the   bathroom faucets, shower heads, the bath tub, and flooring.  It's better that it used to be but still not the dream bathroom that I want.  It serve the need of the family  and that's what is important.  
Anyway, if you want some inspiring designs for kitchen and bath, check out the website I mentioned above.  They do have some beautiful designs that would make you say "Wow!"

That's so beautiful! I have always dreamed of having a very nice kitchen. The kitchen is where I'd spend most of my time, so I want it to look great.

It is staggering how much it costs to redo a kitchen. Maybe it is because it is the most important room, so they feel they can charge more. I love watching Property Brothers redo the kitchens on their show, it's amazing!

Jenny said...

I would love that kitchen! We just redid our bathroom which is amazing all in itself.

One of my guilty pleasures is looking at interior design websites and daydreaming about my "one day" kitchen or bath. But my absolute favorite thing to do is to find some small aspect of these sites that I can incorporate into my current home so that I can enjoy a little special beauty at home!

wow! what a bright and spacious kitchen! I can totally see myself being happy here. Kitchens are really the heart of the house, and there nothing like having a dream kitchen in the home.

Kitchen is a big factor in our home, to have this kind of luxurious and spacious is a winner. I am just happy for what I have and motivate me to stay more in the kitchen.

I agree about the kitchen, BUT the bathroom with the fireplace would be my ultimate escape!

When we were looking for houses back in 2012, I really really wanted open concept, we looked at dozens of houses, but the one we settled on was far from open concept like I wanted, I fact the kitchen and living room were on different floors, however that kitchen had so much counter space and custom cabinets and stainless steel appliances, we decided to settle and go withheld it because we know how much kitchen upgrades cost. Most days I'm not sorry for the choice we made, we just turned the dinning room into a den, so it's easier to be together as a family. Sometimes in a home you don't get everything you want and have to end up paying for those things later.

I love interior design, but it's so easy to get carried away and fall in love with expensive things. I'm sure if you and your husband work together you can create a dream kitchen with a better price tag :)

Manu Kalia said...

Wow the interior design was so breathtaking, The highlight would be the kitchen stunning beautiful. If we have to move on other house, my wife first look would be the kitchen lol.

That kitchen is so spacious! Love the table by the window and the big window! That bath tub is big enough for several people. Very nice!

Franc said...

That's a really elegant kitchen and bathroom design. It should make a really comfortable household.
