Nicole saved some cash on her dream kitchen renovation by buying new builder grade cabinets and painting them herself, instead of paying for pre-painted dark grey kitchen cabinets. Nicole chose a beautiful dark grey kitchen cabinet paint and paired it with white subway tile, white solid surface countertops, and nickel and stainless steel hardware and appliances for an amazing full kitchen renovation before and after! We completely gutted the kitchen, replaced the electrical and then built it to our needs. Luke really wanted to put a breakfast bar separating the kitchen and the dining room.
Ultimately we decided that doing that would not be a very space savvy plan so instead we built a 30 inch long wall to center the entryway of the kitchen & dining room. Sources: Dark Charcoal Grey Kitchen Cabinets + Subway Tile
Hardware- Home Depot – similar brushed nickel cup pulls here and brushed nickel cabinet knobs here. Our dishwasher was from Home Depot and our microwave, stove, and fridge were from the local Sears Scratch and Dent store (all together under $1500!!

The fridge was originally $2500ish and had one small dent on the back and a very very small scratch on the front- I think we paid $800 for it) The sink came free with our purchase of the solid surface countertop came free with our purchase of the solid surface countertop The hanging shelf under the cabinets is from IKEA under the cabinets is from IKEA Counter tops are Corian with gray specks in them from Home Depot.
(I think this was it Silver Birch — closest currently available is probably Antarctica) Ceramic Tile flooring– once again the cheapest stuff we could find. Those babies were $1/sq ft. We matched them up to the expensive stuff we really liked and they were the same thickness so it was a no brainer to save as much $ as we could!
