Well my kitchen is scheduled to be installed the middle of June and we move in on May 30th. All the floors are currently being installed, I will be posting on what I chose soon.
Here’s the old kitchen with the uppers already gone!
Now you can see the existing pink that it was when the original kitchen was installed!
Already looks better with the wall opened up 55″. For those of you who have not seen the entire plan, here’s the elevation of this view (below).
Here is my awesome contractor/finishing carpenter Clinton Adrian.
He’s just finished the steps in my sunken living room today and they look great, pics to follow soon.
We taped the footprint of the new layout onto the floor last week and ended up taking 6″ off the island. It didn’t seem like there was enough room to get around it on your way out the back door to the laundry room.
It’s a great way to get an instant feel for the new footprint. Also it confirms that the lighting plan you have chosen is working well too. I originally had chosen this light fixture to hang over the eating area but in order for the island to work I have to have bench seating instead of a round table which means that the light would not be centered with the windows.
So as much as I simply adore this light, I’m going to do wall sconces on either side of the bench I’ll design for the space and I will have a recessed light in the ceiling instead.
Have you noticed how much UGLY lighting is out there? Wow, I have spent days sourcing lighting because it all needs to be replaced, inside and out! My Pinterest board is getting full of lots of pretty lighting so go there if you need some inspiration!
