    Looks amazing and was the exact push I needed to move forward with my kitchen plans! My cabinets are the same color as yours and also very good quality. I couldn’t see pulling them out and buying new.
    One question… is there a reason why you chose to do the tile after the cabinets were painted rather than before?
    Thanks! Amanda

      Hi. No reason other than scheduling. We are going to do the floor ourselves and most likely replacing the current vinyl floor with new one. We will be using the stick and peel tiles and just cut around cabinets. Since the cabinets were not removed, it really didnt matter when the floor was done. But if we were using real ceramic tile , I def would have done that first. Hope that helps. XX, Anna and p.s. excited for your project! I feel like kitchen remodels make the biggest difference!

    Any chance you can show the brushes you chose to use to paint cabinets?

      Hi – we didn’t paint them. We hired a company – and sorry I didnt take pictures of their brushes. Maybe reach out to them on IG or FB – company is Rinnovare. XX, Anna

      Hi! Thank you so much it’s actually vinyl stick and peel flooring. If you follow me on IG, on the “kitchen remodel” highlight I added a screenshot of the model number and brand name – from Lowes. We installed it over existing flooring.
      Thank you for visiting the blog!
      XX, Anna

    I love this! We have a similar situation with cherry cabinets and a white tile floor. I’m most concerned about the floor situation. We’d love hardwood but don’t think we can do without a total kitchen gut job. Can you share more about what you did with the floors?

    Hi Anna
    By the looks of your kitchen it looks like we didn’t live far from one another.
    Your kitchen came out beautiful!
    Did you purchase the countertop and backsplash from big box store or through a local? Also would you mind recommending the contractor that did the install? Moving to setauket in December and kitchen needs same facelift as yours did.
    Thank you

      Hi – We bought from a local small store – however I would not recommend their services. The product and price were great, however the entire process took longer than expected, I had to constantly call and follow up with the contractor, chasing them down to do work. And we had several design flaws that had to be corrected and sadly compromised on. Best of luck on your renovation. XX, Anna
