Kitchen remodel using Lowes Cabinets

The kitchen remodel at the flip house probably has the most dramatic change compared to the rest of the house.  Remember what it looked like before?

70's Kitchen

It had nothing going for it. Popcorn ceilings, dropped soffit, a HUGE hood smack in the middle of the room, and dated cabinetry.  But not any more!

Kitchen remodel with quartz countertops and a honed marble island

It&#;s now modern, functional and beautiful. I just love how it turned out.  By taking out the window to the old patio, the kitchen gained more counter and cabinet space.

Kitchen remodel with quartz countertops and a honed marble island

I&#;m going to dive right into the details, because that&#;s what everyone eventually wants to know. The countertops are Quartz, in Cashmere Carrera made by MSI It took two slabs to do the kitchen, and I purchased the quartz locally from European Tile Art in San Diego.

Cashenere Carrera Quartz Countertops

Oh how I love that sink!  I love love love it.  It&#;s a Kohler white iron tones 33&#; double basin cast iron sink

You can wash big pots and pans and trays yet you still have a divide for washing dishes.  The faucet is also by Kohler

I put an air switch for the garbage disposal.  You can see it next to the dishwasher air gap on the counter, that flat round button.  The backsplash is a 2&#; x 8&#; glass tile from European Tile art.  It has kind of a grey green color to it

2 x 8 glass tile backsplash

To give the cooktop area a little pizzaz we laid the tile in a herringbone pattern.  It keeps the look clean yet adds some interest to the tall space

2 x 8 glass tile backsplash

Did you notice that there aren&#;t any outlets in the backsplash? When I do a kitchen remodel, and there is an electrician coming in, I ALWAYS have them move the plugs under the upper cabinets.  I hate breaking up beautiful tile with a bunch of ugly plugs

hide your outlets under upper cabinet

The only outlet I have in the tile is for the light over the sink. And since we are &#;plugged&#; in now-a-days, and those devices are always in need of charging, I added a USB outlet/plug combo next to the light switch.

Built in USB wall outlet

The cabinets all came from Lowes.  It was my first time using Lowes and I wouldn&#;t hesitate to use them again.  Their cabinets are quality and well made. I used the Diamond Prelude series in the Neslon Maple Square style.

Cashenere Carrera Quartz Countertops

I try to use all drawers on the bottom cabinets when I design a kitchen.  Pulling out a drawer is much easy to see the contents versus a cabinet door where you have to bend down to get to the stuff in the back. The two lower corner cabinets have a built in lazy susan to maximize what is usually dead space.

The small cabinet next to the oven has a spice rack pull out

I used darker cabinets with a different door style for the island. I wanted the island to look more like a piece of furniture. I stayed in the Diamond Prelude series, but I used the Lamar Cherry color in the Lamar Cherry square style to change it up.

Dark kitchen cabinets with honed marble countertop

The honed marble countertop was a remnant which saves money over buying a whole slab.  I love the movement it has, and it is just enough of a contrast to the Quartz countertops but not out of place

The pendant lights are from Crate and Barrel, and I thought they might be too large for the island, but they work perfectly.

All the appliances are Bosch.  The microwave drawer in the island is my favorite!

Bosch microwave oven drawer

It has a push button to open and close the drawer, so fancy

The floors are porcelain that look like wood planks.  I used them throughout the house and I love the way they look like real wood, yet are way more durable than wood.  I purchased them from European Tile Art in San Diego.

I like to go big with cabinet door hardware.  But going big also means a bigger price tag for each one.  It took me a while to find something I like within my budget, but I finally found these 9&#; thin polished chrome pulls from Pottery Barn on sale.

Kitchen cabinet hardware

I use the same size on uppers and lowers.  I like the uniformity it gives the kitchen.  Plus they make it way easier to open and close the cabinets

The light fixture over the kitchen nook area is from Ballard Designs.  I needed something that was simple but stylish.

When you stand in certain areas of the house, you can see all three hanging light fixtures at one time.  I wanted them to be different but not feel disconnected. The dining room chandelier is the anchor. It brings in the shine from the pendants, with all the crystals, and then the iron from the kitchen nook pendant.

Lighting in a remodeled kitchen

This kitchen remodel transformation is exactly how I envisioned it when I first saw the house. Even though we ran into a little road bump with the glass tile backsplash, it was all worth it in the end.  I couldn&#;t be any more happier with the way it turned out.  I think I gave all the sources for the kitchen, but if I missed something, let me know in the comments, or email me.

Anyone used Lowe's for kitchen design?

As Lowe's kitchen designer, I'm probably a little biased.

I have 12 years experience in designing kitchens, and come from a line of custom cabinet builders (father, uncles, grandfather), so you could say it is in my blood.

At the risk of bragging on myself far too much

I'm very good at what I do, and always take the time to find out what my client's expectations, style, and budget are. I have an encyclopedic knowledge of what Lowe's offers in plumbing fixtures, appliances, flooring, as well as the detailed knowledge of what our cabinet and countertop manufacturers offer. I keep abreast of current trends, technology, and prevailing thoughts on designs. I've designed and coordinated installation of projects up to $, I attend the industry kitchen & bath show (K/BIS), and am a member of the NKBA. While certification as a CKD (Certified Kitchen Designer) is not something I choose to pursue, I know several CKDs and can hold my own.

All that being said, I am the exception. The people higher up at Lowe's understand that most employees in the kitchen department are not going to be as dedicated as I am. They push for our people to work on "cookie-cutter" kitchens because they are quick, easy, profitable and simple for everyone involved to understand.

There are some great designers at Lowe's across the country. If you're looking for something unusual, or have a challenging design problem, you may need to do a little hunting to find the right Lowe's designer for you. I'd recommend you ask a few questions when you get to the store. Start with something along the lines of, "What's the largest kitchen you've worked on?" While you may not have a large budget to work with, you may find it comforting to discover that one of the designers has worked on a large project successfully, and has photographs to show you so that you can see the caliber work he (and the installer) does.

I'd have more suggestions, but I think I've got a pretty long post already.

Countertops and Backsplash: Lowe’s Home Improvements DIY Kitchen Project

Kitchen Re-do: Lowe's Home Improvements

I&#;m so happy to share about countertops and backsplash today, as I recently partnered with Lowe&#;s Home Improvements for a mini kitchen re-do.

Let me say from the outset, I love our home! It&#;s been a work in progress the past 8 years, being a fixer-upper home, but it&#;s just the right size for our family and perfect for entertaining.

We were fortunate for this portion of the job to have Jack, our retired handyman friend, who came to help with the backsplash, and our friends at Lowe&#;s and their team of installers from Medford Countertops. Two outstanding experiences and such a quick turnaround for getting the job done!

When it comes to home improvements, I really like a quote I read in Better Homes & Gardens magazine from Gayle, their Editor in Chief. Gayle said:

&#;Because every time a problem is solved (in our homes) the life we live at home gets just a little better.&#;

A fresh kitchen with new colors and inexpensive ways to touch it up and freshen it up can be energizing and, in my case, it makes me more excited to entertain. Since the kitchen is the heart of the home, and the room we are in the most, why not make it &#;you?&#;

I&#;ll start with the countertops.

Before: Lowe's Home Improvement Kitchen Re-do

After Kevin came to measure the current countertops and and make a template, it took less than 2 weeks for them to make the new LG HI-MACS Solid Surface Countertops. They said our center island was probably the 2nd largest they&#;ve ever fabricated (in one piece). Here are the guys bringing it into our home.

HI-MACS LG Hausys Countertops

HI-MACS LG Hausys Countertops

The reason we went with this LG product for more than one reason:

-The material is acrylic and non-porous and doesn&#;t require any sealing
-The seams are very inconspicuous and oftentimes invisible
-The cost is less than granite
-It has a 15 year warranty, which you can&#;t get with a natural stone product

HI-MACS LG Hausys Countertops

That made our decision easy, plus we loved the white Milky Way color. Part of the mission of redoing our kitchen was to brighten it up! We also learned that Medford Countertops only use certified fabricators (you have to go to school to get the certification), which means the home owner gets a way better product.

HI-MACS LG Hausys Countertops

This is true. Let me tell you why. Our countertops that we put in 4 years ago cracked around the stove area, which is why we looked at new ones.

securedownload-1

We also learned it&#;s all in the installation (which is why you want a certified fabricator installing the product), and that the corners need to be rounded with a seam block. Below is the Medford Countertop crew, with Mark in the center who orchestrated the quick turnaround for us!

HI-MACS LG Hausys Countertops

When they removed the old countertops, they showed us what happened with the original ones. One more no-no was they used particle board instead of plywood. Four years ago we really trusted the company that installed our countertops, but now working with the Medford Countertop guys, we see the how important it is to have the very best installers.

Kitchen Re-do: Lowe's Home Improvements

Happy with our new product, Jack came back to help us install the new graphite strip backsplash. Here&#;s Jack carefully laying out the pieces, which were like a jigsaw puzzle. It took time and detail, but it was so worth it.

It turned out beautifully and we love the new look! No matter the era or latest trend natural stone never goes out of style. Here&#;s a picture after the grout was put up!

Little tiles of colors that combine the color schemes of our kitchen is why we chose this pattern. Cherry red, charcoal, blue hues and with the white cementing, all tied it in to the countertops.

Here are the details of the tile we put up: in x in Gray Mosaic Wall Tile (Actuals in x in)

Kitchen Re-do: Lowe's Home Improvements

The backsplash matches the cabinets and floors, and the white in the new countertops and stainless in the appliances. (New stainless fridge is coming from KitchenAid &#; stay tuned.)

I was able to reuse my 2 stainless kitchen sinks &#; it made me very happy, that Medford Countertops worked with me on this.

The final pictures are yet to come, as there is one more piece coming to add to the kitchen re-do. A brand new KitchenAid refrigerator. More on that later, with before and after pictures, in a dinner party post!

Kitchen Re-do: Lowe's Home Improvements

Our mini kitchen remodel increased storage (it made me sort through a lot and get rid of extra tools and dishes I wasn&#;t using), improved the style, and I love walking into a bright and airy space!

If you could change 2 things about your kitchen, what would they be?

Diy island lowes kitchen

VERDICT

Overall, I think for a starter home, flip, or DIY renovation, this is a great cabinet option. We’ve installed these in homes ranging from $K-$K and they really always look beautiful. In fact, Brian was working on a job once where they installed custom Lowe’s shaker cabinets (to the tune of $11K) and I honestly couldn’t tell a difference by looking at them. Plus, after living with them now for years, they have held up very well. The biggest draw-back is definitely the rough delivery which could be avoided if you select and pick up the cabinets yourself.

Check out my Instagram stories (volume up) for a walk through of my current kitchen with these cabinets and an overview of what I love and hate about them: https://www.instagram.com/stories/highlights//

Home Depot also has their own line of stock white shaker cabinets called Hampton Bay Shaker Assembled Kitchen Cabinets in Satin White. We’ve never used this line (mostly because we never have a Home Depot close to our project). They do seem to be comparable in quality and price. One minor difference that I noticed is that the shaker frame on this style cabinet is chunkier and has more prominent seams where the degree angles meet. I’d love to know if anyone has used the line from Home Depot and what their thoughts are.

Also, has anyone reading ever installed Ikea cabinets? I’ve never personally installed them and wonder how they compare price and feature-wise as a budget-friendly cabinet option. I also see that Lowe’s recently added a gray collection to the Diamond Now series called Wintucket. They look really pretty and I would love to use them on a future project.

I hope this review is helpful for anyone considering the Diamond Now Arcadia Collection. Feel free to leave me any questions in the comments.

How to Install a Kitchen Island

Wait Until You See This Kitchen Island

Are you ready for this friend?

Me toooooooo.

I mean&#;I have been without an operational kitchen sink for 49 days&#;so yeah I am ready too.

Let&#;s go!

If you followed along in IG stories this week then you already know..our Lowes Kitchen Island that Shawn installed received her crown jewel on Wednesday in the form of a quartz countertop.

And friend&#;.her crown is magnificent!

Drumroll&#;&#;

If only my Instagram Reel &#;snap&#; of a finger were true.

The truth is this kitchen has been an evolution of twelve years.

A lot has taken place over those twelve years&#;and while I am bursting to have you skip to the end of this post to show you the many, many pics included below&#;

I think it&#;s only fair to recognize that this transformation did not take place overnight or with the snap of a finger&#;even though I do love those fun IG Reels.

The fact is&#;I think we all look at those pretty pics on Insta and Pinterest and swoon but often times it leaves us feeling kind of down about our own home.

That is NOT how I want you to leave this blog post today.

I want you to know that we have loved our home and been grateful for it at every stage&#;and I hope after reading this you will feel encouraged and inspired to do the same with your own space.

I want you to know that you too can slowly edit, tweak and paint your way to a new way of loving your own home. More than anything I want you to see that your space has so much potential and I hope this evolutionary story of our kitchen inspires you to start small and slowly (remember this baby is 12 years in the making and we still have work to do) and mostly be grateful for the running water your kitchen faucet pours out&#;because THAT is a blessing in and of itself friend.

Amen?

Now&#;are you ready?
Let&#;s take a walk down memory lane into present day shall we?

This was our kitchen in

I snapped this pic AFTER we upgraded all of her appliances. We were so excited to have a brand new refrigerator, stove and dishwasher. I remember staring at the new appliances and being so thrilled with our big purchases. You can also see from the picture above that we used to have our kitchen table and chairs off to the left of the island.

In we gave our kitchen an update by adding a ceramic glass subway tile backsplash (backsplash is &#;Arctic Ice Ceramic Glass Subway Tile in 2X4X8, we ordered it from a local dealer but you can order here.) and granite counter tops. I added the curved semi-circle edge to allow for two stools to be pulled up for island seating which we did not have before.

Once we added the curved courntertop and our family grew to a total of five we decided to ditch the crowded kitchen table and chairs and began eating as a family in the our casual dining room just off the kitchen.

We also decided to convert the double window to a French door to lead out to the stamped concrete patio we had put it in and converted the original door that led to the deck into a long window.

If we have been hanging out for any length of time&#;then you probably already know that Shawn and I have been patiently planning, praying and pursuing options to tear out the white ceramic tile floor and replace the current kitchen island with a larger island that offers more seating.

And then quarantine came&#;and I got antsy.

While we continued to imagine a new and improved kitchen island and new floor&#;I impulsively decided to do what I could with minimal cost and effort to give our current island a facelift.

I wound up loving a painted blue island which helped us later decide on the current new island cabinetry.

The island in the above picture is painted with Sherwin Williams Gray Screen. I fell in love with this color and as most of you know have gone paint crazy on bathroom cabinets etc. I loved this look! It was a simple and cost effective improvement that offered big impact.

We also gave our back cabinets a fresh coat of Sherwin Williams Pure White paint and replaced all the knobs with these champagne bronze pulls.

After this fun little yet effective update we continued to pray about a larger kitchen upgrade as it was appearing that I would be spending more time at home with our three daughters navigating the world of home school and virtual learning.

While we had previously priced out a larger kitchen remodel about a year ago, it simply was not affordable given the impact COVID has had on our personal finances.

However, we still felt peace about moving forward with improving the two main pieces of our kitchen that were not serving our family well.

The white ceramic tile floor was cracking and continued to be impossible to keep clean and our curved kitchen island was not large enough to fit our full family around it.

After a lot of prayer and discernment&#;we opted to jump into a DIY kitchen upgrade.

We made an appointment at Lowe&#;s with a kitchen representative and after two hours we walked out having ordered exactly what we wanted to build our own kitchen island.

Additionally we reached out to a family friend who used to lay hard wood floors with Shawn&#;s father and hired him to lay new hardwood in our kitchen.

But first.

Shawn had to channel his inner Chip Gaines and demo the entire floor and island himself&#;well with a little help from our tiny assistants.

And then&#;the fun part.

New floors!

Above, you will see that we sanded the hardwood floors in the adjacent room which used to be our family room. In the Spring we rearranged our furniture and transformed this room off the kitchen to our casual dining room space. Sanding the existing floor along with the newly laid kitchen hardwood enabled us to achieve the open floor plan feel we have always desired.

Above you will see the area that we tested our floor stain out on the unfinished floor.

We selected Minwax Stain 3 parts Weathered Gray and 1 part Special Walnut.

Once we had phase 1 complete, Shawn got to to work with our handy neighbor and began building our new kitchen island which had been delivered to our door in 3 short weeks from the date we ordered it from Lowes.

Here are the sources for our selections of the new island:

Kraftmaid Cabinetry in &#;Surfside Deveron Maple&#; from Lowes. We LOVE this soft blue. Be aware that online the color looks totally different. I highly recommend you go to the store in person to shop. The color of the cabinetry is the softest blue helping us to achieve that &#;coastal kitchen&#; look we are after.

We also love our new Farmhouse Sink by Sinkology.

The Delta Trask Faucet offers clean and simple lines. The faucet came with a soap dispenser as well which we opted to not install.

blue-island-minwax-stain-floor-home-decor-kitchen-renovation-on-a-budget

I am also loving these Turkish hand towels that are on sale right now.

The kitchen runner is from HomeSense and was a steal for $ I happened to find it&#;s matching Momma to it a few weeks earlier at HomeGoods to go under our farmhouse table in the dining area adjacent to the kitchen.

I almost got sucked into paying WAY too much money for rugs online&#;and I am so glad I was patient and kept circling the rug racks at our local stores for these deals.

blue-kitchen-island-built-in-table-white-kitchen-budget-decorating-home-blog-fresh-inspiration-home-reno-project-lowes

The quartz countertop by Allen & Roth is also from Lowes. We selected an &#;eased edge&#; and a quartz pattern called &#;Peaceful.&#;

Don&#;t you love that?

Me too.

I also opted to not have any overhang of the countertop because I wanted a more flush look. This decision gave us the option to hang two sets of cabinets on the back side of the sink and trash cabinet.

I LOVE this extra storage space because our next project that we are working on in the kitchen is converting our old pantry into a floating shelf space with a built in beverage refrigerator. (More on that later.)

These new island cabinets provide plenty of storage space that we lost when Shawn demo&#;ed the pantry near the patio doors.

Stay tuned for THAT pantry conversion project coming once we have recovered from this big DIY project.

kitchen-island-table-painted-white-kitchen-cabinets-gold-hardware-farmhouse-sink-home-with-heather-krout-blog-local-designer-bel-air-harford-county-maryland

The stools are from Overtsock.

Like the rug situation, I could not bring myself to pay BIG money for kitchen stools. I fell in love with amazing stools from Serena & Lily. However, at nearly $ a pop that was out of the question. I pulled the trigger on these stools that came in a set of two that are still on sale right now for $ for TWO.

Now that is a DEAL.

However, once they arrived I wasn&#;t in love with the natural looking wood legs as much as I had hoped I would be.

Enter my AMAZING MOM.

She gave these babies some love yesterday using this chalk paint from Home Depot. She gently painted a light coat using the foam brush and then used a clean t-shirt rag to wipe the leg for a simple white-washed look. I am after a more &#;coastal kitchen&#; feeling and this gave it just the touch I was hoping for. Thanks Mom!!

I also considered metal stools from Amazon that happen to be popular right now. However, I want the stools to be comfortable as we plan on doing a lot of sitting at this new island so we opted for a cushy seat to rest your tush.

In the above picture you will notice the area that is still &#;under construction.&#; This is the pantry area that Shawn ripped out and we will eventually be giving a facelift.

This was the very sad state of affairs a few months ago. In desperate need of help and attention. Simply, this space was not serving our family well and so it had to go.

You probably noticed that we opted to maintain our back wall cabinets, countertop and backsplash.

This could be viewed as &#;risky.&#;

The thing is&#;simply.

We could not afford to do an entire kitchen remodel.

And?

I really did not know how it was all going to look once we upgraded the island but kept the existing countertop and cabinets.

But?

We kept the faith to only tackle the two main problem areas that really bothered us about our kitchen and took a leap of faith that it would all work out.

I still love our back countertop that we installed years ago and it does work with the new quartz countertop on the island.

Here I have displayed my Mom&#;s famous recipe for peanut butter Rice Krispie treats along with my Grandmother&#;s peanut butter cookie recipe.

Yes, I have a weakness for peanut butter.

Also, a big treat I gave to myself for my 40th birthday was the splurge on the Aria Essential Oils Diffuser. I am currently pumping Thieves and &#;Stress Away&#; on the regular&#;because you know&#;all of the reasons. If you need an YL representative, comment on this post and I will connect you to my girl, Erica. She is super knowledgeable and has helped me tremendously on how to use oils in your home.

I have to say this diffuser is exceeding all expectations and even plays spa sounding music while the girls and I have been doing homeschool at our new island over the last two days.

Friend&#;I hope this LONG post&#;leaves you feeling encouraged.

I know how easy it is sometimes to scroll and slowly shrink down because you feel like you, your home or your situation has you feeling &#;less than&#; when you look at everyone else&#;s home or life or exciting adventures.

The thing is&#;none of us are exempt from feeling that way from time to time.

And as fun as it is to think that things come together with a trendy &#;snap&#; of the fingers..we all know that there is blood, sweat and tears behind that tiny touch of two fingers making it all seem to easy.

The good stuff that we somehow manage to weave together in this life&#;it all hinges on how we hang in through those tough days, weeks and months.

&#;I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.&#;

Psalm NIV

I know right now&#;things are getting heavy.

My hope is that we all take stock of the systems that are serving us well in our lives but more importantly take notice of the systems that are in place that may not be serving us well.

Take time to pray and thoughtfully discern what needs to go and what needs to stay.

I know that for us&#;we could not tackle an entire kitchen overhaul&#;nor did we need to.

And even when our life feels like it needs a total overhaul and upgrade&#;often it is just 1 or 2 things that need a reset&#;or perhaps an unplug.

Similar to how our cell phones start to type slower, the screen begin to dim and the entire operating system starts to slooooowwww down just before it runs out of battery life and dies.

The same goes for us.

There is so much to do&#;I know.

But the day I realized and accepted that I am going to go home to heaven one day and there will still be things on my &#;to-do&#; list&#;that gave me freedom to be OK with whatever gets done in a day.

Freedom to live joyfully even if I don&#;t get it all right let alone &#;done.&#;

Six feet under with a crossed off checklist of chores, clean kitchen and perfectly collected home is not the finish line.

Docking the systems that are running us down or leaving us feeling sad or bad about ourselves. That is real system maintenance that needs attention.

Taking time to re-charge our batteries so that when we come back our operating system can function with full brightness and ready mindfulness power to scale what is ahead&#;that is the offer we have the option to say &#;yes&#; to.

The finish line is actually the starting line of being on the hunt for the hiddennuggets of soul nourishment.

Hunt and Gather them.

I think we all want to bring energy and life into the world&#;and friend, I think we do that best when we take time for required &#;system maintenance.&#;

Shutdown our systems with multiple tabs open so that we can walk into tomorrow or next week with increased capacity to operate out of gratitude for what we do have and the gifts God is blessing us with right now.

They are there&#;but they are hard to see with tired eyes.

Remember&#;

God hears the heartfelt cry.

I know, because he answered mine.

Father God,

Thank you for your guidance. Thank you for your wisdom and discernment as we make our plans and weigh the options ahead of each of us.

Help us to hand over our burdens to you. Thank you for your great love and compassion. Please draw us back to you when we get caught up in temporary trials. Help us to accept your invitation to rest in your forever truth&#;that you will never leave us or forsake us.

Please help us to take time to seek you and receive the peace that surpasses all human understanding.

I praise you God that you alone are the Prince of Peace.

Amen.

Living on a prayer,

Heather

PS &#; Thank YOU for all of your kind messages and concern for our sweet Willa Puppy. She is currently going into surgery today for an &#;intestinal blockage&#; We appreciate your prayers for our fur-baby.
