Kitchen Trend Mushroom Cabinets

One of our favorite kitchen trends right now is mushroom cabinets! We hate to say it’s a trend, because they’ve been around for a while, but they’re showing up a lot more regularly now. They’ve been used in Europe for decades, and Martha Stewart has them in her kitchen (so we know they’re cool. Ha)! We particularly like them because they’re warmer than white, they hide dirt, and they tend to bring a more earthy look to a home.

Spring Drive Project - Kitchen & Mudroom

Today is the day we are sharing the Kitchen and Mudroom design boards and photos from our Spring Drive Project! This was a really special project for us. We renovated the dreamiest old home, with so much potential. When we drove down the secluded side street, we knew it was going to be good. Last May, when we walked inside, we saw SO much potential, and knew the home could be great. The family is an active family, always on the go, and needed really durable finishes. They also needed LOTS of storage… Hence all the cabinetry in the mudroom! We moved their laundry room downstairs to the basement, which allowed us to make this space a proper mudroom/drop zone from the carport. We left the cabinets and layout in the kitchen to save on budget, but completely changed the look by replacing the countertops, painting the cabinets, and adding gorgeous handmade tile. This is our favorite transformation in the home!

Here are the AFTER pictures:

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!
