Kitchen update!

13 Mar

Woohoo!!! Things are finally wrapping up at the house. The interior should be 100% completed by the first week of April! I am bubbling with excitement!

Today I have photos of our beautiful custom kitchen cabinetry and new fireplace surround and mantel. Our contractor made all the cabinets as well as the mantel. The floors have all been refinished and stained a dark mocha color. The whole house has been painted, we went with Benjamin Moore colors. The first floor turned out to be a gray blue when originally I thought it was more gray. I still really like it. Our granite countertops are being installed this Friday and the electrician is working on getting all the light fixtures installed. So now onto the reason why you’re here, the photos!

Excuse the unfinished trim as well as the missing door fronts

The empty space in the peninsula is for our beverage center, it’s a glorified wine fridge that has 2 different temperature settings to chill different types of beverages at the same time. I love the open shelving on the end.

To the right is the little desk area. Our pantry still needs hardware and the empty space is for the fridge.

View from the dining room. The empty space under the window is for the dishwasher and the empty space on the right is for the range and hood.

Better view of the desk space

We decided to use the leftover marble from the master shower to do our fireplace surround. The floors are currently being protected by cardboard but once they’re unveiled for good I’ll share them with you.

I have been purchasing furniture little by little in an attempt to have all the basics covered by the time I move in in the beginning of June. I can’t wait to share all the great deals I’ve gotten so far online.┬áNext time I’ll be revealing our granite counters and hopefully the entire kitchen finished! We’re soo close to being done! Stay tuned!
