The first week of the kitchen renovation process has already come and gone. While there isn’t much to really see in terms of progress as much of the electrical work was done. You can see a picture below of the emptied room with the original floor being the only original thing remaining.
Since there won’t be much else to show for another week at least, this post will be a showcase of some of the individual elements going into the space. One remaining TBD to decide in the next couple days is the wall color. Check back soon for more updates by next weekend.
If you look real close, you will notice the new electrical and recessed lights are in! The update pic isn’t flashy and I’d be concerned if it was since I didn’t want a strobe light in the kitchen. #wordplay
Shown above is what the floor tile will look like against the cabinets (sample is of color only, door style will be shaker.) The tile is called “Clasico Ivory” in a matte finish. It’s the same tile in my bathrooms. I was such a big fan I figured why not use it again!
And a shot of the granite slab I picked out (right at the warehouse). It’s called Bianco Romano. I was looking for something with lots of white and some gray. This was the perfect fit.
I decided that I wanted to go for a deep single basin stainless steel sink. It will be deep enough to wash huge pots, whole turkeys, and infants (in a pinch). After a misstep in ordering a new sink that was too big for the sink cabinet, I landed on the one pictured above from Kohler.
And the kitchen faucet. Satin nickel with a pull down faucet/head. Should be nice.
This is the microwave. Very exciting, right? At least it will be over the stove and not taking up counter space.
Perhaps the most exciting part of this renovation! That new sink should rarely see a plate or utensil. There’s nothing like not having to hand wash stuff to make my day that much better.
