HOME-SPIRATION: Unique Vent Hoods

One of the last and final steps of our downstairs renovation is to finish up the tile backsplash in our kitchen and put up our new vent hood. We decided to get rid of our clunky microwave/vent hood combination and replace it with an update and GORGEOUS vent hood (Thank you David for this amazing idea!) Here are some of my favorite home-spirations for unique vent hoods. They really can create a whole new look for a kitchen.

REINCARNATION: Kitchen Island Carts

David and I love to eat. I mean who doesn’t? But what we really love to do is cook. We usually cook dinner together every night, which is a great bonding and catching up time, but we need more counter space (desperately!) So we are thinking about getting a kitchen island cart to add extra storage and much needed counter space for all the fun we have in the kitchen! Ours will be pulling double duty as a kitchen island and a breakfast table for the two of us! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for kitchen island carts and a few of the front runners in our search!
