Well, I am making some progress in my Kitchen Refresh project that I mentioned here. Working off of this palette of textures that I put together, I have officially chosen the hardware and rug for the kitchen!
For the hardware, cost was a major factor, since we want to do this entire project for only a few hundred bucks. We need 35 pulls for all the cabinet doors and drawers in the kitchen, so ideally, I was looking for something UNDER $3 a piece. These came in at $2.39 each at Home Depot. They are made by Liberty, and I just love their dark finish, with hints of the warm copper tones, which I think will tie in nicely with the wood floors and trim.
For the rug, I loved the idea of using the Flor system. The best part, to me, is that if the rug gets stained (a likely possibility seeing as it’s in the kitchen), I can easily swap out a carpet tile, and carry on! I spent hours on their site, looking for just the right carpet. The Home Movies collection is modern and contemporary, with just enough pizzaz. Most importantly, it’s made tough for the heaviest-traffic areas, like our walk-through kitchen. I love the color options available, and felt like Popcorn fit with the overall palette I had chosen.
So, there you have it… two decisions officially made! Now I just need to purchase the pulls and order the rug. I’ll be back (hopefully) soon with more progress on the Kitchen Refresh project!
