With only weeks left in my kitchen renovation, I wanted to share more about the finishes I’ve selected for my new space.

It’s been almost a month since my last Bayberry Kitchen renovation update. Things are still moving along at a good pace. If all goes as planned, it looks like I will have a working kitchen by July 1! Please keep your fingers crossed.

In my update post a few weeks ago (which you can find here), I shared some of the finishing details for the space, including my appliances, sinks, and faucets. Today I’m going to tell you about my paint and hardware selections. Initially, I wanted to include details about my countertops, tile, and lighting, but this post started to get really long, so I’ll save that information for next week.

To start things off, let’s talk paint!

Bayberry Kitchen Finishes: Paint

As I’ve mentioned, my kitchen cabinets are custom with a lot of beautiful and unique details. (You can get a peek at them here and here.) They have a shaker-style inset with a small edge detail.

Here’s a look at two design boards my designer Katy Popple created.

As you will see, there’s one for the main kitchen and one for the pantry.

Kitchen Cabinets: Sherwin-Williams Egret White SW 7570 (Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel – Satin)

I opted for a neutral kitchen. The cabinets are a light putty color with white quartz countertops and a white tile backsplash. My reasons:

  • I love a light, bright, white kitchen. Always have and probably always will.
  • As a blogger, I use my kitchen and dining room a lot for photography. These neutrals will be a good backdrop for almost anything and everything I want to photograph.
  • I get bored with things quickly. As fun as it would be to have lavender cabinets (hypothetically), I know that I’d soon tire of them. Although a neutral palette may seem “boring,” it’s something I’m much less likely to grow tired of in the near future.
  • IBC readers know how much I love to decorate for the seasons. Having a neutral backdrop will let my seasonal decor shine.

I’m loving the Sherwin-Williams Egret White on my kitchen cabinets. It’s actually a light putty gray color. However, it seems to change in the light. Sometimes it looks gray; other times it looks creamy. Both are pretty to me!

Because I also did want to have a little fun with color, I mixed things up a bit in my butler’s pantry.

Pantry Cabinets: Sherwin-Williams Sage SW 2860 (Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel – Satin)

I had considered a deep blue color for this space but realized “everyone” was doing blue cabinets these days. For something different, I went with green. I love this sage green we ended up with.

I think it provides color and interest in the room while still acting as a neutral. I’m already imagining how great it will look paired with purples in the spring, yellows in the summer, oranges in the fall, and reds during the winter holidays.

Wall Paint: Sherwin-Williams Snowbound SW 7004 (Emerald Interior – Satin)

To help the kitchen, dining room, and pantry feel bright, connected, and uniform, they will all be painted with Sherwin-Williams Snowbound. This is a white color with just a touch of gray.

I think white paint is going to work well with the details in these spaces, but I am a bit nervous about it. Although I tend toward neutral paint colors, I’ve never gone with something so white. Down the line, I may change the color of the dining room. We shall see.

Trim Color: Sherwin-Williams Extra White SW 7006 (ProClassic Semi-Gloss)

This is my go-to trim paint. It’s Extra White in Semi-Gloss, right out the can. It’s such a beautiful bright white, and it looks so crisp and clean. This is the same trim paint I used in my previous home. The only time I’ve used something different was in my recent master bedroom makeover.

Speaking of trim, let’s talk about that next!

Bayberry Kitchen Finishes: Trim

During the demolition, all of the trim was removed from the kitchen, pantry, powder room, and dining room. While the trim in my house didn’t necessarily bother me, I thought this was an excellent opportunity to make it a bit more modern, substantial, and interesting.

Katy (my fantastic designer) and I visited Allegheny Millwork & Lumber to view trim samples. We ultimately decided on this base molding and this matching case molding.

Casing Molding: Casing #G3166 Poplar Contemporary Casing

Note: I’m not sure if these numbers are particular to this store. However, the links provide the profile and measurements should you be looking for something similar.

I must tell you that this was one of the harder decisions for me. I’m a visual person, so I find it challenging to make choices based on a 3-inch sample of something. However, now that the trim is hung, I’m confident we chose well. The trim ticks off all of my boxes and looks fabulous!

Now that we’ve discussed paint and trim, let’s take a look at the cabinet hardware.

Bayberry Kitchen Finishes: Hardware

All of the hardware is from Rejuvenation. I think it’s gorgeous, and the quality is unbeatable.

Without a doubt, Rejuvenation is one of my favorite sources for lighting and hardware. You’ll notice that their pieces show up a few times in this remodel.

One small note here: Although both of these are in an oil-rubbed bronze finished, they read more matte black to me. There’s also no copper distressing around the edges. They are just a solid black color. They also have a satin finish which looks and feels so smooth.

As you can see, I opted for pulls for the drawers and knobs for the doors.

Because I chose a paneled refrigerator and dishwasher (allowing them to blend seamlessly with my cabinetry), I needed hardware for them as well.

To my surprise, appliance hardware is rather expensive. For quality pieces, you’re talking $100 – $300+ for one pull. Who knew!

I needed four pulls: one for the refrigerator, two for the freezer drawers, and one for the dishwasher.

You may be wondering about the powder room.

My new powder room is going to be a special little space, so I’ve decided to save the details about that for a separate post. I will work on getting that together in the coming weeks.

Phew! That was a lot of information.

My goal in sharing all of this is to not only give you an idea of what I’m doing but also to help you with your decision making should a kitchen refresh or total renovation be in your future.

As always, if you have questions, please let me know in the comments. I will do my best to answer them. Thanks for joining me on this remodeling journey!

    I love the Egret color you chose. It’s a nice change from the stark white trend.

  • Jill McLain at

    Hi Michael! Love you style and ALL of your recipes! Your new kitchen is a dream, as well! I am currently agonizing over grout color in a beach house. Countertops are Silestone Lyra. Will use white subway tiles on backsplash and am wondering if you think the Mapei Warm gray grout that you used will be okay?

    I am so glad I found your blog, very impressed with what I have seen so far. Looking forward to your new adventures and your talents in décor.

    Were the cabinets painted by hand or professionally sprayed (a la Sarah Richardson)?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      They were sprayed.
