Living in the same apartment unit for six years now, we’re finally looking forward to moving to a new home. Due to time constraint [work and all] it’s not going to happen anytime within this year but hopefully in 2014, we’ll already be able to start fresh.
As a chef, my boyfriend gets curious every now and then about what my dream kitchen is. He wants us to find a place with a kitchen that’s fit for a chef. Truth of the matter is [and he knows this already], I actually do not have the complete picture of my dream kitchen inside my head – well, not just yet. Considered as the heart of every home, I don’t want something that’s over-the-top. I want it simple, tidy and every part of it functional. And if the budget allows, I want to have these in our new kitchen:
✽ For the backsplash, the classic subway glass tile design, please.
For the backsplash, I want something that’s light and pleasing to the eyes. The subway glass tile idea is a classic [and my heart calls for it]. Choosing the right combination of shades can add a touch of sophistication to it just like this Tao Toffee backsplash that is one of the many projects of Glasstilestore:
Isn’t this backsplash subway’s simple design and on the spot color combo make this kitchen space look neat and subtle to the eyes?
✽ Gray-stained cabinets and shelves.
I have nothing against white cabinets but after having them for so many years now, I’ve gotten tired of them. This time, if ever given the chance to pick a color, I’ll definitely go for gray-stained cabinets --- in a heartbeat. It’s neutral effect will match just right with the subway inspired backsplash.
✽ Off-white marble countertops.
For me, marble countertops picture durability, elegance and timelessness. Although I’ve read quite a few notes on how it is a fuss to maintain its beauty and finish, I still want to give it a shot. With lots of tips and tricks plus great ideas scattered all over the internet from experts, I’m certain that I can handle marble countertops’ maintenance.
Well… for now, these are the top three on my kitchen wish list.
