The Cactus House – Kitchen Vision Board

By Kylee Niederhauser

We are rounding that corner of renovation where things will soon start to look better instead of worse. Know what I mean? We took an extremely dated, but ultimately functional, kitchen and ripped it to pieces. For weeks it has been a mess of torn-up flooring and torn down-wallpaper scraps and knocked-down cabinets and DUST.. so much dust. But we’re rounding the corner.

Try to imagine this space filled with crisp white walls, natural clay tile floors, warm wood cabinets and countertops that look like a swirl of desert sand. It’s subtle and casual but still polished with bits of antique brass and black. It feels organic but intentional – mimicking the energy of the back yard – with textural details instead of patterns. That’s what I’ve been dreaming up for this room since we first walked in here a few months ago.

If you’re more of a visual person, my vision board for the space may help you “see it”:

Flooring: Saltillo tiles stained and sealed by hand (an upcoming project!)

Cabinets: RTA (ready-to-assemble), purchased from H Cabinet in San Diego

Countertops: We picked out the slab (granite) locally but have not yet purchased

Faucet: Amazon

Pot Filler: Amazon

Pendant Light: Anthropologie

Sconce: Etsy

Barstools: Pottery Barn
