One of the best things about buying new construction is definitely getting to pick out all of the internal finishings. Because our home is a townhouse we don't have much say over the outside - but we have complete and total control over the inside. When it came time to decide what we wanted our kitchen to look like, I was so torn. I love dark woods but also love the crisp, fresh look of white cabinets.
We have a beautiful kitchen in our current apartment. It really is so attractive for an apartment (aside from the fact that our dishwasher never works properly). However, it is so, so dark. I sometimes say it feels like a cave. And forget trying to photograph any food to share recipes with you. It is just too dark! While the cherry cabinets are gorgeous, the white in our old apartment was certainly more welcoming.
On the morning of our design center appointment I still had my heart set on espresso. Then, I decided to go by the model one more time and look at the model for every floor plan to compare. Corey's mom and I visited the models, grabbed a quick lunch from Panera, and then headed over to make our decisions at the design studio. All the while, I couldn't get a couple of the model kitchens out of my mind.
Ever since we made the decision to go with white cabinets (almond, actually) I have been completely obsessed with white kitchens on Pinterest. Here are a few of my favorites that are inspiring our future home.
I love how the white cabinets make each of these kitchens look so crisp, clean, and bright. I also really love how each of these kitchens have incorporated other colors to add some gorgeous contrast and really make the cabinets pop.
If you could design your own kitchen what would it look like?
