Save vs. Splurge

Cottages & Bungalows - - Cottage Kitchens -

SAVE:

1. BACK­SPLASH: With a farm­house-for­ward kitchen style, a sim­ple and bud­get-friendly back­splash is a great op­tion. An abun­dance of de­tail in the dark wood helps the light, sim­ple back­splash bring the space to life.

2. LIGHT­ING: Mod­est light fix­tures work gra­ciously with the style of the kitchen. Min­i­mal and sim­ple lights can lead to a larger bud­get for more func­tional pieces later.

SPLURGE:

1. HARD­WOOD FLOORS: This kitchen has truly stun­ning hard­wood floor­ing. Spend­ing a few ex­tra bucks on a show-stop­ping el­e­ment like this can in­stantly el­e­vate a room’s el­e­gance.

2. CUS­TOM IS­LAND WITH STOR­AGE: Along with the floor­ing, the large cus­tom is­land was a splurge. This was the piece that tied every­thing to­gether and gave ex­tra stor­age, seat­ing, din­ing space and style. If some­thing adds a huge amount of func­tion to your space, it’s worth the splurge.
