KITCHEN UPDATES THAT WON’T BREAK THE BANK
I’ve been on the lookout for a new kitchen table for some time now and fell in love with the beautiful Live edge trend.
COMPARISON SHOPPING IS KEY
Live edge tables are everywhere. I really love what Bassett furniture offers because of their custom features. There you can choose from several finishes and sizes. If custom is not important to you however, you may find what you need elsewhere. I landed at wayfair for my selection. The table suited my size, budget and aesthetic needs.
CHOOSE YOUR SEATING
When selecting your chairs, decide what your vision will be for the set. Should it be casual, dressy or somewhere in between? These days, benches are popular choices, along with mixed finishes. Gone are the days of the perfectly matching dining set. I chose these Trattoria side chairs for my seating and added two upholstered chairs for the ends.
My light fixtures were a tad dated and just didn’t work with the new look I was going for.
This Round Chandelier was the new replacement
The shiney metal chandelier added a nice juxtaposition with the tables’ dark woods and harmonized with the 4 metal chairs. While similar ones can be found at Ballard Designs, I found this one at our local Lowes.
UPDATE YOUR PENDANTS
If there are pendants in your kitchen, consider updating those too. While the pendants don’t need to match, do make sure the finishes blend nicely. Depending on the type of fixtures you have, you may be able to update the shades, as I have done here.
Instead of replacing the entire light fixture. Lowes had the industrial shades I was looking for.
These small changes created the perfect refresh for my kitchen. Can you achieve stunning results with a conservative budget? Yes you can.
I saved a bundle by comparison shopping and assembling the table and chairs. I did have my chandelier professionally installed, but if you are up for the challenge, you can learn how to install a light fixture here
