Creating a Kitchen Remodel Mood Board

My friend, Sara, recently shared a few elements of her dream kitchen with me via a virtual mood board.

Here’s Sara’s board with cabinet, lighting, and granite:

I added a few Chic Shelf Paper contact paper design selections (Oak Leaf Marsala, Climbing Vines Greige, and Tobacco Tiles) to give her a sense of the range of patterns that she could select from, which is easy to do by clicking on the zoom feature under each design and saving the pattern online.

Mood or design boards, virtual or not, allow you to easily share ideas with vendors and family members (your Mr, Mrs, etc.) and helps you to envision how patterns, colors, and textures work together.

Today,  you can search for and capture these details on Pinterest, Houzz, or print them out on the handy home printer and tack them on a actual real life mood board.

(That sure beats the days of cutting out photos from magazines and pasting them on paper with Elmer’s Glue. Yes, friends, I’m that old.)

Sara’s investment in her kitchen will really contribute to her home’s value and she wants to keep the new cabinetry pristine so she immediately thought of Chic Shelf Paper contact paper. It’s twice as thick as regular contact paper and has SO MANY more pattern choices.  (Plus she’s my friend.)

Her pattern pic? Oak Leaf Marsala.

As she fine-tunes her kitchen remodeling project, Sara will add design elements such as faucets, flooring, appliance color, paint, furniture (bar stools and kitchen table) and artwork.

What’s your favorite tool for creating mood or design boards?
