In just two weeks were are moving about 5 hours north, from Ft. Lauderdale to Gainesville. We bought a house that had a great layout overall on a nice piece of land, but it needs some renovations, most importantly – a new kitchen! We’ve decided to go with a Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Style. This will combine clean white cabinets, a light countertop, black matte finishes, and touches of rustic charm. Here’s my inspiration board that I created by selecting items from Home Depot and Amazon, two of my favorite retailers.
Now that I’ve shown you some of our ideas, here are pictures of the house itself. When you walk through the front door, you enter into the home’s great room. I absolutely love that we have a real wood-burning fireplace and these beautiful wood floors. We have a huge plan for where the sliders are now located – we will actually have a 400 square-foot sunroom out there. And I definitely want to modernize the fireplace eventually as well.
Off to the right is our kitchen. Plans for this space? We will begin by knocking down the wall that divides the great room from the kitchen. That will allow us to convert that peninsula area into a huge island. We will also remove the soffit all the way around so that we can add 42″ cabinets rather than these 30″ cabinets. As seen in the inspiration board above, we plan on doing white shaker cabinets with a white and grey countertop. Richard and I both really like the black matte finish on the faucet, drawer pulls/knobs, etc., so I went with a really simple design for those. I also want to opt for some old-fashioned lighting for this kitchen because it will boost the overall atmosphere of this space. Then, we hired professionals to install electrical outlets and fixtures. You can check it out here. More old-fashioned lighting details at Steel Lighting Co.
These changes will force us to do a lot of rearranging. The refrigerator will be moved to the opposite wall, sink shifted, and electrical moved via understanding AirNow Cooling & Heating.
New outlets were added with the help of a trusted electrical services company. Find more info about Aardvark Electric, Inc. here. Basically, everything will look completely different by the time we are done. We also opted to install a smoke detector incase a fire starts.

This will be our eat-in dining area. I think I want to add a bar cart next to the wall so that we can create a little coffee nook. We are also going to refinish our dining table to give it a more farmhouse look to match the kitchen. We’ve also called fridge repair professionals to fix our old refrigerator. The floors will all be redone as well, but we are not entirely certain what we will do. A new lighting fixture, like the one above with the Edison bulb, will replace this more traditional fixture with the little lampshades. I love the view from the kitchen straight into the yard. I can now cook and easily watch the kids playing outside!
I’m so excited to get started on all of our home renovations. We’re hoping to be done with the kitchen transformation, sunroom addition, painting, and new flooring throughout the house by Halloween. We’re also looking into adding our old AC from our previous home, but we need to repair it first (find more info here). Click here to contact a professional and see if they can repair yours. We’re looking into services like barnettelectrical.com/oklahoma-city-ac-repair/. Then, we’d like to get started on updating the bathrooms, repairing our water heaters (through companies like tsshomecomfort.com/water-heater-repair/), and really work on the landscaping.

So many exciting things to come for our family!
