Lovett Kitchen Reno

We’re getting close to a kitchen renovation. Haaaallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. I’ve been patiently waiting for this since we moved in.

I’m not trying to do anything groundbreaking here. I just want some classic updates that will make the kitchen feel brighter and less dated. Less sad, basically. We lack serious counter space, so they’ll be some tweaks with the layout that will hopefully not be too costly. This isn’t our forever house so we don’t want to install too many high-end materials but just want something fresh and new.

And with the amount of cooking TH does, this is sure to be a great investment.

Here are some kitchens I’m inspired by.



I love the look of an open floor plan. I was thinking of partially knocking down the wall that adjoins the dining room to allow for that open, brighter feel.


I like the idea of a shelf designated just for cookbooks.


I thought the painted glass cabinet trim was a creative way to add just a small amount of color and depth.


butcher block countertops add durability and organic feel.

subway tile is a bit of a no-brainer. I’m leaning towards dark grout to coordinate with our existing slate floor tile.

And just because I’m hoping to get the ball rolling on this, I’ve already rounded up some items.
