ORDER KITCHEN CABINETS ☑

After a bit of indecision we did go ahead and order the kitchen from Home Depot. We liked the cabinets (Thomasville gloss white thermofoil), the kitchen design and the service from Shirley, our kitchen designer…and we were able to take advantage of a $1600 savings so the price was right. The cabinets will be just under $10,000 installed.

The kitchen plan did have to be altered again a bit once we had their installer do exact measurements. You can see the previous plan below to compare. The window wall didn’t have quite the space we thought once the window and patio door trim, etc. was taken into consideration. So now we have five upper cabinets instead of six. She wanted to keep all of the upper cabinets the same width and made the two cabinets beside the window open on opposite sides to give it more symmetry. I also lost my little corner shelf by the window which I thought was a charming addition but I’ll get over it…I’m telling myself it would have just been a dust collector anyway.

And I am still dreaming about these robin’s egg blue Elmira appliances. They would look so beautiful with the white cabinets…I love them.

Unfortunately, they are not cheap so I will probably end up having to go with stainless. I was also considering white appliances but someone mentioned that the white of the cabinets may not be the same as the white of white appliances which makes sense, so white is no longer an option.

So now that the kitchen is on order I can’t wait until we are ready to install the kitchen. There is lots of work to do before the kitchen cabinets can be installed since currently the kitchen and dining room is down to 2x4s…not to mention the house is sitting on blocks until spring comes and warms up the frozen ground enough to dig a foundation and pour a basement. All of the interior work is on hold until then so I am hoping for an early spring.

While we wait there are plenty of design and decorating decisions we’re still working on like hardware, flooring, counter top, appliances, lighting and that’s just the list for the kitchen.
