KITCHEN UPDATE WITH CAFE APPLIANCES / THE LOVELY COTTAGE


 As most of you know, our kitchen is pretty small.  It's the one room in our home that we didn't update when we renovated.  Sure, we painted the cabinets, put down a new tile floor, and added/updated a few light fixtures, but for the most part - we left everything as is.  The countertops were new and the cabinets could be salvaged with a little paint, however, the appliances were BAD.  They were so aged, beyond basic, and didn't give the space a cohesive look at all.  We decided the kitchen would be a full renovation itself one day, whenever we could do it, but until then, we would only focus on one thing - updating the appliances.

J and I love to cook + entertain and fully believe the heart of the home is in the kitchen.  From hosting a party to a weeknight dinner with friends, we live for gathering people around our table.  Or on the other hand, we love a good date night in, just the two of us, and a big home-cooked breakfast on the weekends.  Whatever it may be, we spend so much time in our little kitchen.  

When thinking about which appliances we wanted to update our space with, we knew we wanted something that would blend with our style, but also have amazing features.  We found out about Cafe Appliances, a sister brand to GE, and immediately fell in love.  They were so different, yet high-end, and the options were endless.  From multiple color combinations to custom-designing your range + refrigerator, we were so obsessed with this beautiful brand.

We decided to go with the matte white finish and brushed bronzed hardware on our refrigerator, range, dishwasher, and microwave.  We were also able to customize specifics like a double-range oven (convection and gas), over-the-range microwave, counter-depth fridge, and built-in dishwasher. The entire look is so high-end and beautiful - they without a doubt, completely make our space.  Everyone who walks into our kitchen no longer sees old cabinets or tight corners, they're immediately drawn to the appliances.  Cafe Appliances is a total game changer!

As we did a little research and compared the brand to others, we quickly learned that the unique look wouldn't break the bank.  When you put the products beside others, they not only look amazing, but they also have way more features + custom options for the same price.  The Cafe Appliance team was so great to work with with all shipping + installation questions and within about 6 weeks, our kitchen was updated + refreshed.  The matte white is perfect for our space and if we ever decide to switch out the hardware color (doubtful, but love having the option), we simply order new hardware in the finish of our choice!  

From finding the brand, researching the products, and seeing them in our kitchen, we have been so impressed with Cafe Appliances.  We've used the appliances for about 6 weeks now and have zero complaints.  Both ovens have been broken in with family dinners, the microwave is a life saver when we're in a pinch, the dishwasher is SO quiet and holds so many dishes, and the refrigerator is so easy to stay organized!  We're excited to enjoy our new appliances for years to come, gathering friends + family around them in the heart of our little cottage.

Hope you all have a great week - thanks so much for stopping by!  X.
