SOLSC Day 15
On Tuesday we met with Taylor, our kitchen designer for a second time. After our first meeting she took what we told her and did a design for us. Because of the way our kitchen is set up we are keeping the layout the same. We picked a natural oak cabinet finish, a speckled counter top, and a non-descript tile floor.
Here is the what the kitchen would basically look like.
To get a better idea this is the cabinet color and style.
This would be the counter top.
And the floor tile.
When we first saw things laid out with these colors we liked it but weren’t really excited by what it looked like. Although everything is new, it looks too much like what we now have. We wanted a change.
To get some ideas we went to Ollie’s where you can get good stuff cheap and bought several design books at $3.00 each. The more we looked the less happy we were with the color scheme.
We saw some painted cabinets that we liked so when we met with Taylor today we told her we changed our mind about the color scheme. Her response, “Not a problem. Many people do this.” We looked at the Thomasville color choices and found one we liked. The finish is “pearl”. It is sort of a very pale creamy yellow. The countertop we picked works well with this color so we are keeping that. The floor tile was definitely out. It is much too pale and doesn’t look nice next to the cabinet color. Back to the drawing board.
When we first began thinking about this project we had seen some Pergo flooring we had liked. We thought we would check this out with the cabinet color. It really looked sharp. It is a medium ash color that really makes the cabinets pop.
We then went and looked at the tile backsplashes to see if anything caught our eye and would work well with our color scheme. We found one. It took Taylor no time to change the cabinet color in the computer program. We are pleased.
After she fine tunes things she will send us the updated look. I will post it when we get it along with some other changes we made to the original design.
