When Kalie and Travis moved into their house a year ago, they knew they had a lot of things to change to make it feel like home. Thrilled to finally have an outlet for their passion for decorating, they have been gradually implementing their big plans in their self-defined little house.

They changed out the light wood floors for dark, and installed new custom cabinets built by a friend. Stainless steel appliances, granite flooring counters and a subway tile backsplash all helped to transform this small kitchen into a better reflection of Kalie’s vision. Her favorite part? The new spot resistant faucet that her plumber husband was able to pick up with a $50 discount!
