Save vs. Splurge
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.
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.
