We have been remodeling our kitchen bit by bit. Two years ago, we had all of the very old appliances replaced with stainless steel ones. We also replaced the light fixtures and put in brushed nickel/white fixtures and replaced the knobs on the cabinets with brushed nickel
In September/October, we painted the kitchen and repainted all of the cabinets white. We also replaced the old hinges on the cabinets with brushed nickel. Last weekened, we replaced the old metal mini-blinds with two-inch white blinds.
Yesterday, we had granite counter tops installed that are dark with flecks of nickel in them (it's called Blue Pearl).
I've ordered new seat cushions made for our bench seating and extra material to make valances. The material is a dark grey. They should be here in about a week.
As I'm writing this, DH is reconnecting the facet and garbage disposal. (Thank goodness for him.) We still have to retile the backsplash and paint part of the bench seating. We're having family over for Thanksgiving, so I'm hoping that part will get done over the weekend.
Once the tiling and painting is completed, we are getting our oak hardwood floors refinished in the kitchen and the rest of the house.
Bit by bit, it's getting done. It hasn't been bad at all as far as kitchen remodels go. I think it will be completed by Christmas!
This is what happens when I watch HGTV while I Spark!
