New House..Upgraded Kitchen

We moved into our new home Early September and already started working on a couple of upgrades.


1. Flooring: We wanted to get rid of the fake tile flooring and carpet in the formal dining room.


Before:


We moved into our photo 3262982-1 No backsplash, terrible flooring, needed a little love


After:


Flooring and Custom Backsplash


We moved into our photo 3262982-2


We moved into our photo 3262982-3 Hard wood flooring, Brazilian


After Backspash and Flooring comes uplighting:


We moved into our photo 3262982-4 Picture doesn't do it justice.. it's amazing! What a difference it made it look at night!


We moved into our photo 3262982-5


----------------------------------------------------


Before: BLUE colored formal dining room, short baseboards, and the worst.. carpet We moved into our photo 3262982-6


Part 1: painting it to a neutral color


We moved into our photo 3262982-7 


After: New paint, New flooring, and New baseboards! Love the 4 inch!


We moved into our photo 3262982-8 


 I still have to work on a couple of other things like the fixtures, I want them to be bronze!

Great job!!!


It's amazing how much of a different the backsplash made!


All of our fixtures (faucets, lights, etc) are oil rubbed bronze - I love it!  Just be prepared - anything that comes in ORB is more expensive than the same thing in nickel, chrome, brass, etc.

WOW!  What a difference.  It is absolutely beautiful!  I love it. 


I want to get a back splash too!  Just can't do it yet. 


 I also went with the bronze light fixtures and I don't regret it one bit.
