Renovation Crazy: Kitchen Inspiration and Design Elements

As promised, let’s talk about the new kitchen inspiration and design elements.  I haven’t finalized any of the details that will make the room fun and interesting but I’ve decided on a few key components: floorplan, cabinets, colors, and floors.

Here are my inspiration images (which I’m sure you remember from the Colored Cabinets Obsessions post):

Navy cabinets with butcher block countertop and brass pulls. Wall of interesting tile.

Navy base cabinets, white uppers, and great bar setup area.

Navy lower cabinets, white upper cabinets, subway tile, and brass pulls.

So obviously, I’m going for navy lower cabinets and white upper cabinets with brass pulls.  I haven’t figured the tile yet but I’m hoping it will make a big impact and provide more interest in the room.  To help visualize it, here are a few quick-and-dirty renderings I’ve compiled:

I’ll be spending some time working on the details about the finishes including handles, lighting, tile, etc.  I hope to be able to share some updated images next week!
