Earlier this week, we excitedly shared the before and afters of the Fullmer kitchen! We’ve done several kitchens over the years at a variety of price points and we’re excited to the Fullmer kitchen to our portfolio! I wasn’t originally going to share a budget breakdown of this one because it wasn’t my budget to share, but the Fullmer’s gave their blessing. It definitely came in as the most expensive kitchen we’ve ever done (we included donated products in the overall price, but put an asterisk next to those), but we still saved a TON of money doing most of the work ourselves.
Here’s a little trip down memory lane so you can check out the other kitchens we’ve done at a variety of price points. You can click through to see the full budget breakdown of each:
This Baltimore kitchen we did in a weekend for $4555! Appliances and cabinets included!
And the Fullmer’s kitchen came in at $48,676. The higher end appliances definitely attributed to the price tag, but also really made the kitchen!
Here’s how the budget broke down (I put an asterisk** next to the items that were donated by our partners. Most of these were brands that we worked with for the cabin and wanted to work with us again—-or things we got for the cabin and donated–:
Cabinet boxes: Ikea Sektion boxes $4,000
Windows: Pella $900
Gas line $400
Countertops: Silestone Ariel Quartz $5,200
Exterior Brick patching after making the window smaller $900
Can lights/electrical $4,700
**Cabinet doors: Semihandmade X Chris Loves Julia Cove cabinet doors mixed with Semihandmade Supermatte White doors $7,000
Open shelves $50
**Beams (coming for sale soon)

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
