We have been in a working kitchen for a few months now. We are just waiting for the backsplash and to frame the opening in the wall. Otherwise, we are done!! It’s fabulous and SO NICE to have the cupboards, drawers and counters back.
This is the main view of the kitchen when we were just waiting for the final visit from the electricians (the 2 hanging lights above the counter haven’t been installed in this photo).
I’m really happy with the choices we’ve made. The cupboards are a really nice colour and tone. I wasn’t sure about the counters when they went in but I’m really happy with them now. They are quartz. The company we had make them did a beautiful job.
The only problem we ran into with the counters was the next day when Avery said to me that she doesn’t like the counters. I asked why. She said because every time she walks through the kitchen she has to stop and look at the beautiful blue sparkles! Oh, the horror!
We had a few hiccups with the orders from Home Depot. Initially they sent us the wrong bottom cupboard under our beautiful glass-fronted cupboards. When they reordered the drawer and cupboard door, the drawer was the wrong size. They also forgot to send 1 pane of “rain” glass. On and on. Fast-forward about 6 or 8 weeks and we finally have the cupboards we ordered! YAY!!!
In this photo we have all of our glass but still not the proper bottom cupboard. It’s beautiful anyway. <3
After having lived with a weeny-teeny sink and then a gimungous laundry sink, we finally got our sink that was just right. I had no idea that there were so many decisions to be made about a SINK. We finally chose an undermount, stainless steel double (same size) sink with this plain-jane tap. Colour me happy.
