The cabinets are almost all installed!
Look! Cabinets! Not all of them are installed, though; some are just sitting there, waiting their turn. But at least I can finally visualize what this kitchen is going to look like! The color is a little off in this picture, though, because the wood looks a bit yellower here than it does in real life.
Today the guys are working on plumbing, the phone line, and leveling the counters. For a while we had a flooding issue that they managed to resolve while I remained blissfully ignorant. It had something to do with a “bib” that wasn’t right. I sat on my comfy couch in the basement and tried not to worry as the guys ran around the house to stop the water. I’m not wet, so I guess all is good. 😉
Our appliances, flooring, and appliances have arrived. They aren’t installed yet, but I took pictures anyway. Who wants to see?
This is probably my favorite part, the granite! This is actually our granite backsplash, but I’ve placed it here to show how beautifully it matches the maple cabinets. Isn’t it perfect? The granite color is “tan brown.” If you look closely, there are even silvery tones that match our stainless appliances and cabinet hardware.
Here are the floor tiles. The color is “nautilus cream,” which has the warm tones of the wood and the white colors of the kitchen’s trim and accents.
Appliances! They are sitting all lonely in the garage. Our old white one is in there, too, and we’ve been living out of it for the last two and a half weeks.
Here’s our sink, made of black granite composite. We want it undermount, which means it will sit under the granite counters. The contractors are going to have to send it and the granite to a granite specialist who can cut the counters exactly right. That will delay the installation of our counters, which is disappointing, but worth the wait.
Ally watched from a bench in the backyard today. It’s a gorgeous day out, so I’m heading out now to take her for a much-deserved hike.
