Gray and White Kitchen Reveal

It’s finished! It’s finished! I can’t believe it’s finally finished!! Remember eight weeks ago when I shared my plans for remodeling my kitchen?

Over the last eight weeks I took my completely outdated 1950s kitchen from this:

Original kitchen:

A kitchen with bench seat and table

After removing the built in bench and table:

Kitchen Reno 3

Kitchen Reno 2

To THIS:

Gray and White Kitchen Reveal - You have to see the before!!

To say I am ecstatic with the outcome would be a gross understatement. My kids keep asking me, “Mommy do you like your new kitchen?” I am thrilled. It came out just like I pictured – only better. This is definitely by far the biggest project I have ever taken on, designed and budgeted for and I’ll admit it was exhausting and it was scary. I opted to work with a contractor since there was no way I could DIY this, and quite frankly, I just didn’t want to. I wanted it done right!

It took a total of eight weeks to be finished, but while that was incredibly hard, it was oh so worth it. I’ll quit yacking now and let you enjoy the photos. There are a lot. I’ll share a source list at the bottom of the post.

The printables on the wall were created by me. They will be available to download in a separate post. I opted for clipboards instead of frames because I like the flexibility it gives. I’m looking forward to changing them out for the seasons (and sharing more fun sets with you!).

I am IN LOVE with this sink and faucet from Moen. Like, I want to sleep in this sink and take showers with this faucet. They are that awesome. The faucet is MotionSense, which means it has a motion sensor so you don’t have to touch the handle. This comes in handy when your kids have super messy hands and you don’t want them  touching anything. And I love the spot-resist finish!

The apron front, farm style sink has been especially handy with large cookware, and it looks beautiful.

I opted to change the layout of this side of the kitchen to allow for more counter space, something my old kitchen was sorely lacking. It feels so nice to have that extra space!

Yes, I know the fridge is huge, but I don’t care. I big double puffy heart love it.

I agonized over this stove. Gas or electric? Dual Fuel? Slide in? Gosh, seriously I spent HOURS reading reviews and trying to weigh the options. I love to cook so it was really important for me to make the right choice. So far, I LOVE it!

Hardware for the cabinets from D Lawless. It’s an amazing, family owned company and they were fabulous to work with.

I tried to get a good photo of the countertops but the lighting is so bad in the kitchen (very little natural light) that this was the best I could do. Another decision I agonized over!

  1. I do not see the grout brand or color listed. I am doing white cabinets & gray tile as well but can’t decide on light gray or white grout.

    1. I wish I had that information for you, but it was just something my ontractor brought by and I chose from. Sorry!

  2. Wow! That is really stunning. It’s really the first time I’ve seen stainless appliances that really work well in the kitchen. The color palette will stand the test of time (I grew up with an avocado range and mustard colored ah. other pieces and parts.) Good on ya! You’ll still be loving this kitchen when the kids are married and the grandkids come over to make cookies. Gas range — excellent choice. Clipboards as frames? Brilliant!

  4. I love the light fixture above the sink! I’m trying to find it on Wayfair, but they have hundreds! Do you have a specific model or keywords I can search on? Kitchen looks awesome!

  5. Nice job Kristen. Did you use white grout for your backsplash? My countertops are similar and tile is alittle darker trying to decide on grout colour? Thanks
