Let's Discuss Kitchen Makeovers

Do you ever think about what your dream kitchen would look like? I do. The kitchen is the hub for most of our family activities.  It's where we do our homework and art projects, and it is where we eat together and talk about our day.  

I have tons of things I would change about my kitchen if I had the budget, but there are also many thing I like about my kitchen:

1) The color - I recently painted my kitchen, and I am really pleased with the colors I chose.  The main part of the kitchen is Great Plains (CC-334) and the accent wall is Hale Navy (HC-154)

2) My light fixture - I replaced the ugly light fixture that was above my table (when we purchased our house) with an inexpensive one ($139.99) that I like MUCH better.

3) My pull out drawers - I would love to have a walk-in pantry, but since that isn't an option, I am glad that I have pull out drawers in one of my cupboards. Pull out drawers really help with kitchen functionality and organization.

4) My windows -  I have two windows and lots of natural light in my kitchen.  I love how bright it is.

5) My floor - I really like the tile floor in my kitchen.  It is practical and easy to clean, and that's important for a busy kitchen like mine.

Now do you want to hear about what I would like to change about my kitchen?  (You can check out my Pinterest board here to see what inspires me.)  I'd love to have more storage space and a big island, but if I only had a small budget, here is what I would do:

1) I'd love to paint my cupboards white and update the hardware.  When I am browsing dream kitchens on Pinterest, the white kitchens are always the ones that catch my eye. (There is just too much light wood in my kitchen!)

2) I'd love to get some new appliances... especially a new fridge (as mine is scratched and makes weird noises).

3) I'd love a backsplash.  Right now, I have nothing, and I think putting in a glass tile backsplash would really make a big impact in my small kitchen.

4) I'd love to have a really organized "command centre".  With three busy boys, this project has been on my "to do" list forever.

5) I'd love to install some pendant lighting over my breakfast bar.  It's another small change that I think would make a big impact.

What changes would you make to your kitchen?
