Like I mentioned yesterday, we did a lot of work to the kitchen, and after living with it for about 6 months we decided to add in some extra details to enhance the kitchen even more
We added wainscotting to all of the sides of the cabinets. This is a nice detail, plus the area that you will need to cover probably wont be that much, so its a detail that wont cost that much.
We added molding to the top of all the cabinets to give it a more expensive look, in the picture below you can see what the cabinets looked like before.
Just plain boxes...not too exciting.

We also decided to add a chair rail around the room and wainscotting below it. Again we dont have that much wall space to cover, so it wasnt that expensive for the materials. This is the largest empty wall
There are about 4 areas in the kitchen with this amount of wall. So we were able to get the look of wainscotting all around the room, with very little wainscotting. Which makes my wallet happy
This is our hardware. I love oil rubbed bronze. This came out of a box set from target. I think like 10 for $15, something like that, I think they were also on sale. You can still buy them individually at target for $1.78 each.
This is our faucet, also in oil rubbed bronze. It was $250 from Home Depot which was a lot. I loved it and had to have it. For me personally since the cabinets were old, I wanted to make sure to splurge on the faucet and appliances.
Close up of the tile design. I also think these would look great painted. We kept them white to make the room feel bigger.
Hope you enjoyed some of the details of our kitchen
Do you have any before & afters that you're proud of? If so I'd love to see, comment and put a link to your post about it!
