Kitchen Reveal~ish

Thursday, November 6, 2014

Hi sweet friends!

 I wasn't sure what to call this post.

You see, most everything has been installed except the pantry doors and a little crown molding, but there is still a bit to do before we can move back in.  So I am so excited to share our Kitchen Reveal~ish with you!

The cabinets are white shaker with a little beaded detail for the perimeter and cherry raised panel for the island.  The counter tops have been installed.

Here they are installing the piece of soapstone that goes in front of the kitchen window...

There is one more coat of sealer to be applied to the wood floors so paper is still down for added protection.  

Marble for the island...

Holes have been drilled for fixtures...

The front cabinetry still has the glass and shelves to be inserted...

The subway tile has been installed
and in this picture the plumber was on the way so all the plumbing fixtures had been laid out for him...

Next is the tile grout and sealer...

The floor guys were coming the next day to apply the last coat of sealer to the floors so the paper was removed.  The little pieces of blue tape are areas they will touch up prior to adding the last coat of sealer.

This view is looking in from the great room....

The oven wall...

The ovens and dishwasher are by Thermador.
To the left is a steam oven and to the right is a microwave, convection oven, and warming drawer...

Wrapping around to the front window wall...

As you can see there is still a bit of crown molding to be installed...

Wrapping around to the rangetop wall...

The drawers were built to accommodate the gas line but the top one needed a little tweak which is why it's missing. The rangetop is a 36" BlueStar with four gas burners and a griddle...

The Sub-Zero fridge panels still need to be installed...

 The dishwasher panel and one of the island cabinet doors still need to be installed also...

We are thrilled with the fixtures!  I can't wait to start using them...

The new floors are getting their last coat of sealer and the existing wood floors are being re-sealed so everything had to be cleared out (again!)...

The laundry was cleared out too.  Say bye-bye to the brown paneling, it's being painted...

Yikes...that sink is ugly naked without it's skirt!

The furniture and furnishings were moved to rooms with carpet or to the great room where the floor has already received the final coat of sealer.  Our house is a BIG MESS...

The floors have been sanded and are having the last coat of sealer applied.
Notice the shiny floors in the dining room with one last strip waiting for sealer...

Here's what we have left to do before moving back home and getting things in order...

~ Seal the grout
~Install the pantry doors / a bit of crown molding / appliance panels / cabinet door & drawer
~Fix several pot light holes that are too large for the light trim to cover
~After all is done our cabinet maker will do some final touch ups

Thanks so much for coming by!  I hope you are enjoying following along with our Kitchen Remodel Diary.

  2. Its all gorgeous and you are very fortunate to have such a beautiful place as the heart of your home. Don't know what your experience with gas burners is, but I have a range with 5 burners and I don't really care for how tight it can be when you are cooking. I think 4 is so much better!
