I remember when Josh and I went to pick our finishes for the house we currently live in and it was rough. I had NO idea what to choose. It was so stressful. I think most new home owners feel this way. The design center staff said they’ve even had people there for up to five hours! Torture. I went in and picked the whole house in less than two hours. It helped that I know what I like and I’ve spent a long time figuring out my style. If you are building a new home I suggest you spend a lot of time on Pinterest honing your own style.
I also did hardwood throughout the main level.
I love the look of dark wood but it’s not easy to keep clean and with this house being by the lake I knew it would get a lot of traffic and dirt. I chose a laminate to stay in the budget. I have laminate in my own house and we’ve been really happy with it. I will say that it definitely bubbles in any place where you let water sit too long. So that you have to be careful with.
In the master bathroom I chose a marble tile set in a herringbone pattern.
For the Kitchen I’m doing white cabinets, white subway tile and a gray island.
For the counters I chose a white quartz.
I’m doing shaker style cabinets. This is by far my favorite cabinet style.
I chose to do nickel finishes throughout the house. For the Kitchen hardware I’m doing bin pulls on the drawers and round knobs on all the doors.
I can’t wait to show you how I’ll be decorating this house! Stay tuned next week!
