San Antonio Kitchen Inspiration

When it came to thinking about remodeling ideas for our "new" kitchen, it was a pretty easy process - I wanted it to look like this!

I had ripped this image out from the March 2010 issue of Better Homes and Gardens - long before I knew I would actually have a chance to remodel a kitchen - I had just saved it as a 'someday kitchen'. I loved the warm feel, the mix of materials, the color of the cabinets and the look of the pendants. While I couldn't have the vaulted ceilings and beams (I wish!) in my current kitchen, I wanted to achieve a similar feel.

Maybe not the most creative or original approach to want to copy a single kitchen, but I knew if the final product looked something like that I would not be disappointed. Along the way, I collected other images of kitchens that caught my eye, like this one with an eclectic feel:

In addition to gray cabinets, we knew we wanted some contemporary pendants above the counter. Our current kitchen didn't have any pendant lighting.

I was pretty sold on having a subway tile backsplash as well. I know it is used a lot but there is something so sleek and (I hope!) timeless about it that I love.

Lastly our kitchen cabinets were calling out for some pretty hardware like these:

The big reveal of how the kitchen turned out is coming soon! (Here is what it previously looked like in case you missed it.)
