Parental Kitchen Remodel: Potential

Starting from scratch on a remodel is always tough. Tougher still when your brain is constantly wracked with indecision and the knowledge that you may come to regret any decision that you eventually make. Imagine these are the thoughts you are plagued with every minute of every day for the rest of your life... Yeah, that's what it's like be a member of my freaky little clan. 

So, you are beginning a kitchen remodel. 

Do you choose dark wood cabinets?

Or light wood cabinets?

Or white cabinets?

Or cherry wood?

Or something fun and funky?

What about appliances? 

Do you pick white?


Panelled to match the cabinetry?

What about the floor?

Matched to the entry and living areas?

Tile floor?


Herringbone? (Yum)

Checkerboard? (My Fave)

What about the island?



Simple table as island?

With Seating?


What are your thoughts on beginning a project from scratch?

The only things I'm sure of are white cabinets and hardwood floors! Everything else is a hard decision, for sure.

We built our home 6 years ago and my tastes have changed a bit since then, but if I had to do it over again, I would have picked colors/ideas that are classics rather than of the moment for the high ticket items like cabinets and flooring.

Sometimes it's easier having limited choices, isn't it? LOL!

Honestly, I would take any of these.

Tough choices!! I am partial to white cabinets and wooden floors but also love kitchens with dark cabinets and light counters look too.

White cabinets in the next house for sure. It just makes a kitchen look so crisp and clean.

I cannot imagine a mirrored island. I have a mirrored nightstand and it gets so dusty and dirty. I can only imagine with food and drink around.

Oh, this is The Nanner from The Nanner Republic. hahaha. I didn't know if you'd recognize me by my name. :)

How overwhelming--I don't think I could design one from scratch!
