Budget kitchen renovation-white cabinets and brown countertop
I would like to thank everyone for inspiring me to tackle this project. This is my first kitchen renovation in my first house. Its almost done and I finally got to use the kitchen tonight. Countertop was installed on the 27th after 5 weeks of delay, and then things moved along quickly. I still need the lower cabinet hardware and backsplash (still can't decide). I kept the foot print of the original kitchen, got rid of the raised bar, which made the space felt more open. The two splurges were Dura supreme cabinets and quartz countertop. I kept the old floor because it runs into the rest of the house and would be too expensive to replace the floor in all the rooms. My plan is to hire a professional to clean the floor tile grout line. I am at around 19.5k right now and once the backsplash is installed, I will be slightly over the 20k budget I set for myself.

I love the lack of grout on the countertop, the huge single bowl sink that can finally accommodate large pans, and the fact that my mixer is no longer wedged between the upper cabinets and countertop.
