Kitchen Update

The kitchen layout was complete and we were planning on going to IKEA to pick up our cabinets this Saturday.  Well the plan completely changed today.  After laying out the original plan and double checking measurements it just did not work.  The island was was to big and there was not enough room on each side to be completely functional (we have a galley style kitchen).  So today on my lunch break Rebecca and my Mom helped to come up with a whole new lay out.

Oh and I failed to mention that when Mom and I went to IKEA three weeks ago I picked a whole new door style.  Mom and I liked both styles below.  The one on the right is the one I was sure I was going with....until I brought it home.  I purchased one door of each style and thank goodness I did!  I like the door on the left so much better and feel like it goes better with the house.

The style is Lidingo

 Back to the rearranging...After we completely rearranged the kitchen today I ended up with a range hood.   This had never even been considered before but since the oven/cook top is going to be on one wall by itself I need a hood for ventilation or we need to buy a oven/cook top with a built in pop up vent (which can be pricey) not sure what I am leaning towards at this point.

I do like all of these hoods.

Another major change that took place is that the sink has moved from the center of the island back to the wall where it was when we bought the house.  I am considering hanging a cute light and maybe doing a chalkboard or picture under it.

Open shelves would be cute but I do not want them to look to cluttered since I will have several glass front cabinets. 

I think just putting a small size cabinet above the sink is my favorite option so far.

This whole remodeling process has just reinforced what I already knew....I am sooo sooo bad at making decisions and I change my mind constantly.  I know what I like but when it comes down to it have a really hard time pulling the trigger.  Needless to say I do not think we will getting our cabinets this weekend.
