Kidd New Build / Kitchen Design

Designing my kitchen has been a challenge, and I can see why people hire a designer ;) But, seriously! It feels a lot more challenging when it’s your own space, and I’m not sure why. I’ve dreamed of building a house my entire life, and the fact that it’s happening seems too good to be true.

My style is warm, welcoming, collected, and earthy. The handmade tile, wood island, and honed countertops give it an earthy feel. The rich aged brass, oversized island, and dark stove give it a warm and welcoming vibe. The mix of textures and metals give it a collected look.

I’m so excited to see this kitchen take shape in the months to come!

I shared inspiration and a design board a few months back, but a few things have been tweaked!

Kidd New Build / Kitchen Inspiration

When I say I’ve had a few sleepless nights thinking about the design of our kitchen, that’s an understatement… I have gone back and forth, in lots of different directions with this space, because it means SO much to me. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and our family has a lot of serious food allergies and an auto-immune disease, so having a safe, functional, beautiful kitchen is really important to us. I see it as a place for our family to find comfort and safety (since we can rarely eat out). I see it as a place where we will entertain and make lots of memories. Design is so much more than making a space “look good”, it’s about creating an environment that makes you feel 100% comfortable, inspired and at home. I think I’m finally getting somewhere with our kitchen, and boy… I’m excited about it!

Floor Tile Under $10 / Sq. Ft.

Floor tile is a great way to upgrade a bathroom, mudroom, or laundry room. It doesn’t have to be spendy either. We’re sharing some of our favorite floor tile that’s under $10 a square foot.
