Mallory’s Classic Colonial Kitchen: Renovation Selections

This post is sponsored by Elkay. As always, all opinions are our own.

I’m in the middle of this kitchen renovation and I feel like I am going a little bit crazy! With the holidays and all of the construction it can be so chaotic and busy. Not to mention, I am doing the baseboards and trim work myself, which is just a tad bit time consuming haha!

Seeing the progress each day is so motivating! I’ve been sharing everything behind the scenes on stories (@classyclutter) which has brought up a ton of questions and requests for links.

Now that we have finalized so many of the details, I’m ready to share what we have chosen for #MallorysClassicColonial!


The sink was one of the first things I picked out for my kitchen. I chose this stunning farmhouse sink from Elkay!

Elkay Quartz Luxe 35-7/8″ x 20-15/16″ x 9″ Single Bowl Farmhouse Sink with Perfect Drain

You guys – this sink has a feature called the “perfect drain” which means it is completely edgeless! The edgeless design allows the food to go right down the sink instead of getting stuck around the drain. It is way more hygienic and helps keep the sink looking clean. I chose the color “Ricotta” (white),, so keeping it nice and sparkly is very important to me.


White is BEHR Frost and the Beams are BEHR Carbon. Tried and true faves that we use over and over!


This also brings us to the floors! This is the flooring I had prior to the remodel but we did a herringbone pattern when it was reinstalled and I am never going to get over it!

My cabinets are being installed as we speak! I have several stories posted in our Kitchen Reno highlight bubble and I’ll update this post as soon as I have pics to share!

Our cabinets were done by Stradling’s and they have blown me away! This is my uncle’s company in Gilbert, AZ and I cannot recommend them enough. Give them a call and tell them Mal sent you!

I mean, can you even?!


I have the 12 light version (this is 8) but it is currently out of stock!


Panel ready fridge! My cabinets will lay so nicely on this fridge!

Okay, this is a real dream come true – I am going to have TWO dishwashers! This is panel ready as well.

And for the grand finale….

My new range! Somehow it is even more beautiful in person!

I cannot wait to see all of this come together! We are almost there!

    Ahh, the joys of working with that old plaster lath and the framing behind it! Forget about studs placed 16″ on center!
    At the risk of offering a suggestion you already know very well…….One great way of furring out the original framing to achieve plumb and square is to use steel track and studs screwed into the sides and slightly forward of the wood studs.
    I look forward to seeing if you decide to keep any of the old cast-iron and galvanized waste and vent piping.Garage

    I didn’t think that there are any consequences to it but there apparently are. As I am looking for kopar condo price, I am very glad that I came across this post because the content here is very informative. And it definitely helps people.Garage

    Structural improvements such as new roof, drainage, electrical, plumbing, etc. (done to local code by legitimate tradesmen and inspected!) are much more important to me. Ceramic tiles, granite counters and bad paint jobs are not going to cut it if the basement smells of mildew. If I buy a house I want it to be sound and I’ll decorate it my way and not because it was newly landscaped, usually with totally inapropriate plants that will either die or become too big. Unfortunately many prospective buyers don’t see beyond the cosmetics.BV Kitchen Design

    kitchen is a place where we all love to be especially when it is clean. A portable dishwasher would be great for a small kitchen.
