Good news: On Thursday, the counter top was installed. On Friday, the appliances were hooked up. Now the kitchen re-do is nearly complete!
I say “nearly,” because the contractor still has some cabinet tweaking to do. Also, I haven’t yet selected a tile backsplash. And lastly, only the room’s south and west walls have been tackled. Matching base cabinetry will be installed on the east wall later this month.
Some pictures for you:
I love the gray-veined, white quartz counter top. I love it so much that I can’t bear to clutter it up with my batterie de cuisine. Give me time, folks.
I love the sink! It’s wide enough (22 inches) to accommodate my large baking sheets and cutting boards, and deep enough (10 inches) for my tallest stockpots.
The gas cooktop, from General Electric, is the best I’ve ever owned. (The contractor has yet to install the drawer panel that goes in the empty space below.) I purposely selected this cooktop because its knobs are on the side, and out of reach of a certain counter-surfing canine.
The counter-surfing canine in question. (Hi, Avery!)
The double ovens are a dream. I’ll discuss them later in a separate post (or in a video).
Wondering about the yellow Post It notes on some of the cabinetry? These indicate problem areas that the contractor will address. One cabinet door was poorly finished — the new replacement door has already arrived.
In closing, I’d like to thank you for staying by my side throughout this krazy kitchen project. Please know that I kept your comments and suggestions in mind when purchasing the new cabinetry. That’s why you see more drawers than doors!
