As a good Swiss would tell you, there’s no such thing as planning too early. And with that in mind, I’ve been slowly planning my house that will be built in… oh… a year from now! But in fairness, building a house and determining every single tiny little minute detail is going be completely and utterly overwhelming for me. Other people LIVE for this – the idea of decorating and designing all day long! Me, I’m more the kind of girl who actually never pays attention to any house details whatsoever. I can visit a house 5 times and still not be able to tell you the color of the couch, let alone the details of the faucets or what shade of faux wood the floors are.
So with that in mind, I turned to other people’s genius in home design for some ideas I can steal and pretend were my own. First, a little background: we have a huge open first floor with kitchen and living room and dining room areas all open. We are going to have a medium-dark hardwood floors all over and most likely all walls will be white. Now, here’s what I’m thinking for my kitchen. PRETTY PLEASE, if you know anything about this stuff and have some advice, TELL ME!!!! Lisa=needs help home designing!
This is the shape of our kitchen (with an island) and I like the placements of the fridge, stove and ovens in the pic below. I’m also thinking white cabinets and a gray granite countertop. Still undecided on the backsplash… thoughts?
