I’ve been SO excited to share how our kitchen remodel turned out! When I first saw our home, I immediately fell in love. It was in our favorite neighborhood and was the perfect size for us. It wasn’t exactly my style though and I felt like it needed some serious brightening. Luckily, my husband agreed and we started planning out our remodel. Not only did we remodel, but we did it QUICK. Like the major big stuff happened in about a week! We are seriously blessed when it comes to family. Both of our families helped us so much and we really could not have done it without them! We laid wood throughout our home, painted, retiled the fireplace, tore out and put in new backsplash, had our cabinets and countertops redone, installed new recess lighting, as well as light fixtures… and so, SO much more. We are not quite done with our remodel and still have to decorate and add some things, but i couldn’t wait to share how far we have come and hope you will follow along for the rest! Oooh and guys, fun fact, but my moms kitchen has always been my favorite… and since I knew I couldn’t copy it completely (although I reallllly wanted to, haha) we decided to use her backsplash and put our own little spin on her kitchen. My husband and I are sooo happy with how it’s turned out. It has been so much fun(& sooo much work!!) to be able to make our new house our home. Have any of you attempted a house flip? How was your experience? I would sincerely loveee to hear! Stay tuned for some more renovations at the Thompsy Casa and as always, thanks so much for reading! XOxo

    Absolutely beautiful! We are saving $ right now to put in new floors throughout our entire house and update the kitchen, next year. We have white modern cabinets but I’m dying for a pretty backsplash, quartz countertops, & dark ashy floors in the kitchen. You are so blessed to have your family’s help. Great job! 🙂

    It looks gorge! Can I ask what type of material you used for the white countertops? We are planning to re model our kitchen and right now my kitchen seriously looks just like your “before” pics haha! But the only thing I’m having a hard time with is finding and choosing new countertops that aren’t too pricey but that are white or white & grey.

      Hi Tiffany! We went with Quartz! Ours are in the color white Zeus. We really love them and they are great for families with kids. Hope that helps! I’m sure your kitchen will turn out beautiful! Xoxo

    Love this! Can I ask you what brand your appliances are and where you got them? I am currently in the process of a kitchen renovation!

    It’s gorgeous girl! That backsplash is so YOU! Haha love it all. What are your countertops made of? I’m wanting something similar for ours? And like I said on Instagram, serious props on getting started so quickly! We have been in our home for almost a year and we’ve only got to Ella’s Nursery! Haha

    You did a beautiful job on your house! I love it so much. We have been trying to pick wood floors FOREVER… But I’m so picky. Where did you get your floors and what color? They are PERFECT! Thanks for your reply and love your blog!

      We tore out the existing tile and just laid the new one! Our tile came in sheets and my father-in-law laid it for us! He had never done it before but it turned out great! I’m sure there’s a tutorial on YouTube or something 🙂

    I am DYING over your back splash! I am really curious to where you found the tile? I love it!! Excellent job and beautiful home!! Thanks!!

      Hi Ericka! Thank you! My mom actually has this backsplash in her home and I always loved it so much so she gave me her extras. Sadly It is now discontinued! 🙁

    Absolutely adore your kitchen! Did you use a general contractor that you recommend? Did you redo the cabinets altogether or just reface and paint? Looking to move to Cypress and renovate a home ourselves. This turned out gorgeous and so bright and fresh!!! Best wishes and love!

      Thank you! Nope, we did most of the work ourselves with the help of family. We kept the original cabinets and hired someone to paint them. It was a ton of work but we are so happy with the finished product. Good luck with your move~ I’m sure your home will be gorgeous. xo

    I love your kitchen remodel! This is very similar to what I would like to do. May I ask what color floor did you pick!

    1. destinyhthompson@gmail.com Post author

      Thanks so much! The brand is Urban Floors in the color birch ash bark! 🙂

    Beautiful! What color did you paint your walls?! We just moved to Katy,TX from California not long ago! I am having a hard time finding a neutral color that matches just right! Thanks!
