The kitchen is literally the heart of my home’s open-floor plan, so since moving into our house just over 9 years ago, I’ve been working to upgrade it’s look.
We opted for oak cabinets when we moved in, so we purchased a big oak table with Windsor-style dining chairs to match. I know oak cabinets aren’t in favor right now, but I like the retro down-home look of our kitchen.
For a long time, I had my eye on Broyhill’s Attic Heirlooms china hutch, so when a local furniture store had a similar one at a great sale price during a going-out of business sale, I snatched it up.
I later replaced the ugly plastic globes that the builder had installed as ceiling lights with an oil-rubbed bronze chandelier over the table and an oil-rubbed bronze pendant light over the other half of the kitchen – the dark (almost black) bronze matches the hardware on the china hutch.
I’ve purchased dark Liberty oil-rubbed bronze cabinet pulls (that sort of match the pulls on the china hutch) for our kitchen cabinets, but I have yet to install them. I’ve installed cabinet pulls in our bathrooms, but I’m worried about installing these pulls — there are so many holes to drill, and I want to make sure all those holes line up.
I’d love to someday replace the laminate floors with either wood floors (preferably) or with tile, but as that is a big expense (especially since my husband and I aren’t handy), I am not sure if that project will ever happen. I actually like the color of the floors that Sarah of the Thrifty Decor Chick blog has in her kitchen.
