The bigger picture.
Our kitchen is finally coming together, its been a labour of love and planning, now just to add the finishing touches, we will be ready to move on to our next project.
Going back a while, when we viewed the house prior to purchasing it, this is what we walked in to.
The picture on the right shows the entrance from the garage into the kitchen. The floor tiles were having an effect on my eyesight!
The floor tiles were slate with rough grooves and totally unsuitable for a kitchen.
Wall and floor cabinets were the original units built in the 1980’s
Renovation underway. First, take up the floor tiles, then remove all the existing predated cabinets. The curtains had to go!
The floor had to be leveled, popcorn ceiling re-boarded and skimmed. Temporary cabinets in place (garage shelves). Did you notice that there is no sink, dishwasher or range. We were literally camping.
Moving forward –
Thank goodness I measured the floor correctly, the pattern we designed fit perfectly
Slowly our kitchen renovation project is coming together. Under cabinet lighting installed. My husband tried his hand at tiling the backsplash. Tiles from Home Depot.
Floor tiles from Tile and Stone Express Douglasville
Appliances from Appliance Smart
The floor tiles we decided to take into the hallway as you enter from the garage and also into the downstairs half bath. More photographs in our next DI Y series.
