On Monday, we asked you which of these five kitchens you would choose to copy if you were remodeling your kitchen today. And the results were unanimous towards these two:
As promised, today we are sharing with you (1) the source of our new inspiration and (2) details and cost estimates for each kitchen. First, the source.
We already love using Zillow for real estate searches, but we recently stumbled upon Zillow Digs and quite frankly got lost for several hours perusing their pictures and posts. What is Zillow Digs? It’s part Pinterest…part Home Depot…and all fun…especially for those of us who love home decor and remodeling projects. But the official answer is:
Zillow Digs is a hub for home improvement and interior design ideas. Get the information to make your project happen with cost estimates, paint colors and product details.
When we are considering a home improvement or remodeling project, we love looking at pictures around the web and in magazines for inspiration, but Zillow Digs goes one step further. It provides comparable information to the materials used (paint colors, flooring, cabinets, decor, etc.), links to those materials, and cost estimates for the whole project.
For example, let’s look at one of your favorite kitchens from Monday:
According to Zillow, the cost estimate for a country kitchen like this would be $76,200. This includes their estimate for materials and labor. To recreate this beauty, you would need Pottery Barn Aaron barstools, Stonemark Granite Countertops in Absolute Black and Azul Platino, and Sherwin WIlliams paint in Camelback for the walls. But what about the ceiling, the subway tile, and that faucet? Get the full details (including links to each material) for this kitchen here.
Now, let’s look at the other favorite kitchen:
Building this traditional kitchen would cost you an estimated $89,000 and would require Georgetown Bronze chandeliers, a Whirlpool stainless steel range hood, and Hampton Bay shaker cabinets. Check that granite color, floor material, and hardware details this kitchen here.
And it’s not just $75,000+ kitchens! You can explore inspiration ideas on Zillow Digs by room type, cost range, color, and style. Also found there are several home project guides like choosing the best bathroom lighting. And Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year. Wait, we already told you about that😉
Zillow Digs….we’re in love. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to measure my kitchen floor….
