There’s so much to share right now I honestly don’t know where to begin. But since it’s been awhile since I did a design post I thought I’d talk about kitchen remodels today because-- as most of you know-- we’ve been on a house hunting adventure lately.
And unfortunately I’m seeing lots of awful looking kitchens and bathrooms in some of these older homes.
I’m pretty clear about what I’d like in our kitchen remodel, but it’s always fun to hear what kind of materials others are selecting.

Apparently this is what folks seem to like in their kitchens these days:
- 75 percent of readers prefer having soft, neutral colors in the kitchen.
- 65 percent of readers prefer stainless steel appliances
- and half will select a tile backsplash for their next remodel.
If you could remodel your kitchen right now, do you know your taste?
What would you do differently?
Here’s a few kitchen photos I selected for various reasons…but one unifying theme of these photos is that I like a kitchen that feels warm and comfortable enough to be the hub of the house. Not too formal, but classic. And not too perfect either.
I love white, lots of natural light and big farm sinks.
And these windows would be on my dream list.
After years of having tile floors I’m ready for some warm looking wood,
the wider the plank the better.
And even though I loved the ease and beauty of granite in my former white kitchen…I’m ready for something different.

These days I’m keeping an open mind about other materials… like maybe wood on the counter or island…
Although I still can’t let go of marble countertops despite all the warnings I’ve heard about stains.
What is your experience with marble?
The other day I stumbled on this short video of Nate Berkus talking about his recommendations for a timeless kitchen remodel.
Are you curious about his opinion?
