Hi, it’s Gabrielle from Savvy Home here again! You don’t need to splurge on all the fancy gadgets in the world when renovating a kitchen, but sometimes, a little luxury goes a long way.
This is the kitchen of Lauren Gelb Weisbarth, sister of Alison Pincus, co-founder of One Kings Lane. Sure it’s a nice large kitchen with marble countertops, but it also features a few money savers like vintage stools and a modest subway tile splashback.
In the end, it’s the little luxuries that make this space seem accessible and functional but yet polished. Here are a few tips to take away from this kitchen.
1. Add a spotlight over the important task areas such as the sink.
2. Lanterns are a great versatile lighting option in the kitchen. They’re the practical version of a chandelier.
3. Don’t be afraid to paint your island a different color. This one is Benjamin Moore’s Newburg Green.
4. Add a small table for the kids to play, help prep the food or eat breakfast.
5. Give your kitchen a more youthful look with vintage pieces like these diner stools. Very D&D.
6. Bamboo shades are ideal window coverings for the kitchen. Go for electric shades for extra luxury.
7. A second sink on the island is perfect for smaller tasks and cooking with two or more people.
8. Cover your range with millwork for a more seamless look.
9. A pot filler above the cooktop is one of those little luxuries that come in so handy! No need to carry heavy pots back and forth anymore.
10. Invest in hardware. They really are the jewellery of a room.
How have you added a little luxury to your kitchen?
See you next week!
