Getting ready to dive into a kitchen project and want to get it right!
Recently my husband and I purchased a mid-century ranch. It has a very mid-century modern feel. The kitchen, I must admit, was what I fell in love with first but after thinking it over we made the decision that it was not very functional and that it would be the first to go.
At first glance it seemed perfect, boomerang counter tops with chrome trim, solid wood maple slab cabinets... very vintage. Problem, the kitchen at some point was reconfigured and made very awkward and the cabinets do not have backs. We then decided to stick with the same modern style but bring it into 2012. I would love to stay with the 1950's look but have to admit I don't want to spend money on something that people will come over and think it needs a renovation.
While I have always been a modern girl at heart out last home was very traditional in a town where everyone had the same style, therefore I have not had a lot of contact with the feel I am trying to pull off. Magizines and showrooms have been my only guide. Everyone gives us assurance but I just want to make sure its not lip service. I am not having doubts but I just need some unbiased opinions before we dive into these uncharted waters. We have already purchased our kitchen items but at this point nothing has been installed or demoed, we can turn around.
We have not made any decisions on paint, flooring, foot molding or back splash so if you have any suggestions for this please let me know.
I am posting the items we have chosen and hope to post the kitchen layout, (my scanner is being naughty). Any feed back is appreciated weather negative or positive. Our only sticking point is we want a modern feel not traditional.
