It is hard to believe our kitchen is twenty years old! We have enjoyed our kitchen over the years and it is the nucleus of our home.
Today is the day! It’s the 20th birthday of our kitchen!
We are celebrating today because I think our kitchen has aged so well. She does not look even close to twenty!
I get. asked all of the time. why I picked a white kitchen. If anything, I think a white kitchen is a safe choice. Twenty years ago when I picked this style, the “popular kitchens” had dark cupboards with dark green granite. They were so popular! But I held firm because I wanted a classic kitchen that could have been built in our house over 100 years ago.
The kitchen is the nucleus of our home and I am most creative when I am cooking and entertaining.
The windows are original and the cabinets and island were all custom made. All of the cabinets and trim are painted Dunn Edwards Swiss Coffee. The walls are painted with Farrow and Ball Cooking Apple Green paint.
We have two sinks and the large farmhouse sink is located on the back wall which overlooks our backyard. The. countertops are honed marble and the drawer pulls and knobs were from Restoration Hardware. The floors. are oak and were stained to match the rest of our floors.
So what has changed in our kitchen over the last twenty years? Practically nothing.
We replaced a dishwasher and the instant hot dispenser a few years ago. We have touched up the paint a few times and changed the canisters and some of the decor. But that is it!
