I loved the unexpected sconce the builder put just to the side of the kitchen window and sink.We were also lucky to have neutral appliances, countertops and a backsplash similar to the one in the Delta Showroom to work with, but those are also easily paintable to keep a kitchen budget friendly.

This was not that much of a stretch since turquoise and blue are a main color way in the last home, but bringing that color into the kitchen really helped the orange look nicer.And I think when and if we update, when we are ready to sell, we might try staining the cabinets a dark chocolate to match the living room floors, or just go ahead and paint them, but for now we are happy with the changes we made…FYI, here is a link to when we were building the columns in case you want to see how we did it.Remodelaholic is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to We love hearing from fellow Remodelaholics, so let us know what you like about this and leave any questions below in the comments.resize=500,375&ssl=1" alt="" width="500" height="375" border="0" data-jpibfi-post-excerpt="" data-jpibfi-post-url="https:// data-jpibfi-post-title="Kitchen Review and Reveal" data-jpibfi-src="https://i1com/
