It’s no secret I love a good kitchen renovation. We’ve gone through two of them – in our first house in Cincinnati where we went with lots of cream and bronze details and in our second house in Milwaukee where everything is white and silver and perfect.
I miss that kitchen probably too much.
Today’s post is part of the summer series Room by Room hosted by Amy from My Life at Home. A group of bloggers are each sharing a room from their homes each week, and you guessed it, today is all about kitchens! You can see everyone else’s blog posts linked below.
If you missed last week’s post on foyer decorating, be sure to check that out!
Our current kitchen in our rental house is pretty dark, and we haven’t done much in there aside from painting it Aesthetic White, so we’ll chat about our other two kitchens today. 🙂
We learned a thing or two after going through two kitchen renovations, so I’m linking to my most popular kitchen renovations posts below, like why I LOVE quartz counters and the easiest way ever to get more storage in your kitchen cabinets.
Plus I have a free kitchen renovation checklist, so be sure to download that if you’re planning a renovation.
If you’re new around here (hi and welcome!), here’s a peek at our Milwaukee kitchen before and after.

Of all the rooms in our Milwaukee house, I miss the kitchen the most. White bright kitchens really are the best, aren’t they?!
