This is our amazing, big, and open kitchen. It is truly what sold us on our home. It is wide open to our family room and it is where we spend the majority of our awake time.
However- it needs a little help. We are slowly replacing appliances and I am still working up the nerve to paint or stain the cabinets and that inner battle has been going on for years! The oak cabinets with the oak floors and light walls are just to boring for me. However the 256 cabinets are scaring me that I might be painting for a year.
Since I am really dragging my feet on that project, my husband and I decided we needed a quick project that would give us some instant gratification. We hit Lowes, found a beautiful new faucet and replaced our old one in one afternoon!
Okay, I am not going to sugarcoat it- installing a new faucet if you have never done it can be a bit trying. The hardest part for us is always removing the old fixtures and is often a two man job. Just make sure you have a partner and the correct tools and you will be good to go!
Two kitchen faucets that we fell in love with were The Kohler Cardale and Elliston. We were looking for contemporary without being too modern and a clean look. These both fit many styles and tastes easily and beautifully.
Elliston Kitchen Faucet had a few features that really stood out to me and were important as we were looking for a new faucet. It has a scratch and tarnish shield, a high temperature limit to prevent scalding, a MasterClean (TM) spray face to resist mineral build up and ease cleaning.
Cardale Kitchen Faucet had the finish we loved and the two function spray head and temperature memory we were looking for. I am just in love with the contrast and versatility of this faucet!
How do you all freshen up your kitchen on a budget? I am still looking for excuses to avoid the cabinet painting project! Head over to Lowes, in person or on-line and find the perfect Kohler faucet to update your kitchen for a reasonable price in one day!
