House Hunters Renovation Product Review


hgtv blog main1

A few months back I designed a kitchen that was featured on season 3 of the HTGV show House Hunters Renovation. Once it aired, I received a flood of emails from people asking about the materials I used. So I thought I would go ahead and post it on the blog for all the curious minds out there! Honestly some of these are my favorite “go to” brands and products and I use them often!

In this design I used Benjamin Moore paint.  I love using Benjamin Moore paint because of it’s high quality and beautiful selection of colors. I get questions about the specific colors I used and they are listed below.

For the plumbing fixtures, Delta faucets are both beautiful and functional, especially with their Touch20 technology that allows you to turn your faucet on and off by simply touching anywhere on fixture. I selected their brushed nickel finish even though I used brushed bronze (GASP!) for the hardware on the cabinets…. but I have no problem mixing the metals!

Next is the glass back splash which was the highlighted materiel for the kitchen. The product is manufactured by a company called Hirsch Tile.  Their glass mosaics are unique and it added so much texture and interest to the overall kitchen. Check out their unique material sizes and options on their website. The one I selected for this design came from the Sillouette series.

The hardware was from Schaub and Company and in particular I chose the Northport Collection which features 4 classic finish options.  I chose to use a brushed brass color finish because I felt like this was something unique which most people don’t use and it also tied in the gold colors from the glass back splash. It gave a really elegant touch to the cabinets. See the photo below for more information on the products used in this kitchen.

The light fixtures in this space are both from Rejuvenation. The industrial styling and brass finish gives the space a lot of character and charm.

The counter stools came from World Market and were the perfect color and scale for this kitchen. The image below features more information on these items.

And lastly were the solar shades on the 2 windows which come from The Shade Store. This company makes one of the best solar shade products on the market in record time and with great quality. I use these all the time!

House Hunters Renovation Recap

It was such a blast working on this kitchen renovation. This was one of those designs that COMPLETELY changed the space from a drab 1970’s eye sore to fresh and up to date modernized kitchen. Below are the after pics from today’s episode of House Hunters Renovation.

When I first walked into this space I knew right away that something with the layout needed to change. It was as if there were a huge block in the middle of the room stopping this kitchen from its full potential. And then it hit me…. Open up the entire kitchen by eliminating the peninsula and get double the space!!

So that’s exactly how I designed the kitchen. I also used the hallway closet space to recess the kitchen pantry and refrigerator. This was a huge factor in allowing all that open space to breath.


Next was the color palette and it truly started off by the amazing glass tile backsplash. It has so much variation in color, sparkle, metallic hues, and wow factor. In terms of the cabinetry, I already knew that the clients Ani and Allen really wanted a light color in their kitchen. So I chose a clean and crisp bright white to allow the other materials to shine! I even designed the countertops with a bright white quartz so that it didn’t chop up the kitchen.

One of the most exciting details in the kitchen is the use of the brushed bronze finish in the pendant light, wall sconces, and door handles. It’s an unexpected change to the basic nickel finish which so many people use, and it adds a very unique and elegant touch.

So after tons of hard work and energy Ani and Allen get to enjoy their wonderful new and contemporary kitchen.
