Kitchens get a lot of attention — and rightly so! We make several meals a day in there, and it's where everybody tends to congregate when guests come over (even though you've set out the drinks and the snacks in the living room). So, why not start your home renovation design plan in the place where you spend the most time?
That's what designer and blogger Brett did and the result is this stunning kitchen, which she shares with her husband, Brandon. There are tons of things to love about it, but we made a list of our favorites.
1. The two-toned color-blocking.
Brett took a chance painting her peninsula navy instead of keeping it white like the rest of her cabinetry and the reward really pays off. This way, the counter really pops against the mostly white, airy kitchen.
Another plus: Scuff marks are less likely to show up on the dark paint. Huzzah!
2. Those tiles.
Cement! Hexagons! Two things we can't seem to get enough of these days. We love that she didn't just go with the same hardwood floor that runs through the rest of the home. The different material really helps define the space.
3. The fact that it hides a tiny secret.
That door that looks like a pantry? It's actually hiding a stacked washer and dryer, which the couple didn't have space for anywhere else. It's totally smart and so well done, visitors would never even know there was laundry hiding inside there!
