OUR HOME RENOVATION: Part One

I’ve been meaning to do this post for MONTHS, but I kept thinking I should wait until our entire house is completely finished being decorated.  Then I realized, that never really happens.  At least not in my house. Ha!  I’m going to go ahead and share the top questions we’ve received about our home renovation and then, as we get other rooms decorated in the house, I’ll share those.  I hope this is helpful!

FYI: We’ve lived in this house for over ten years.  We started our renovation last October.  It’s a one story home with a split floor-plan.  We knocked out the wall that divided the kitchen and the living room to open up the space and then completely gutted the kitchen.  We also took out the bathtub in our master bathroom and made it one oversized shower.  (Bathrooms and kid rooms will come in a later post). Aside from that, we repainted the entire house, updated the flooring, added the wood ceilings, created a mudroom, added a few barn doors, and changed the tile, counters, and lighting in all bathrooms.

PAINT COLORS 

Walls // Snowbound by Sherwin Williams

Cabinets and Trim // Pure White by Sherwin Williams

** Our entire house is painted the same colors!  We did this to help open up the space; we absolultey love it!

FLOORS

Wood Tile // The brand is Daltile and we went with Saddle Brook – Oak Trail

** We have the same tile throughout our entire house.  I am BEYOND pleased with how it turned out.  We had dark hardwood before and we like the lighter wood tile WAY better!  Our hardwood floors were so scratched up so we knew we wanted to go with wood tile during the renovation!  We have zero complaints!

KITCHEN BACKSPLASH

Name // Palisandro Chevron Polished

Stone Type // Marble

** Our backsplash is probably the number one thing I get asked about. It’s GORGEOUS!  We ran into a place to grab a few sinks and on the way out I saw it from a distance and fell in love!  It was the only backsplash we even looked at.  We made the decision instantly!  It’s so pretty and I love the neural tones!

APPLIANCES

All of our appliances are GE. We wanted the Advantium (rather than a microwave) and GE is the only brand who makes it.  For that reason, we went with them.  We have a double oven, but, technically, it’s  an oven on the bottom and the Advantium oven on top.  It’s been great!

COUNTER TOPS

We went with quartz. It’s mostly white with a few, very faint grey veins.  We didn’t want anything too busy.  It turned out great! They didn’t list an exact name on our order (it was just an item #).

PENDANT LIGHTS

We got the pendants over the island and all of our bathroom pendants from Shades of Light.

Bathroom Lights: HERE

CEILINGS

In the living and in our master bedroom, we have the raw wood accent wall in the ceiling.  It’s raw cedar and then they put a clear sealant over it.  It turned out GREAT!  This was something that I saw on Pinterest and fell in love with it!

ROMAN SHADES

We got them from Lowe’s and the brand is Levolor.  I can’t remember the actually shade color that we selected, but I’ll dig though our paperwork and try to find it!

FIRE PLACE

Our fire place had flagstone and then during the renovation we had it white-washed and added a wood cedar beam (they stained the beam).

NOTE:  These are not professional pics; all of them were just taken on my phone. There are several rooms not shown, but, again, I’ll get those put into a separate post soon!

    So beautiful!! Excited to check out that backsplash. We built 4 years ago and still don’t have one! We also did the Advantium oven as a way to have a 2nd oven. The microwave part confused all our friends for years. Lol

    • Yes! We had more shelving installed in my office space last week. Once we get them painted, I’ll add a post with that info along with the another room in our home that’s just about done.
