Hope everyone has had a great start to the year! I'm excited to show you guys the new cabinets and countertops. I'll tell you that it wasn't until these bad boys were installed that it felt like things were finally coming together. Here we go!
In this first picture, you'll see the cabinets are going into the kitchen. I helped assemble the upper and lower cabinets and then my carpenter installed and trimmed them out. One of my favorite parts of the kitchen is the cabinet over the fridge with the custom built housing for the new counter-depth fridge.
Here's a shot of the island being built and the framework for the it is shown above. I designed the island to house additional storage, a large under mount sink and dishwasher. Don't forget about the extra seating!
Here you'll see the island is finally coming together. I love the clean lines and the space it gives for additional seating. And did you notice the appliances are in??
I had the island painted black to match the cabinets and the natural light is awesome. Since the countertops weren't in yet, I used a sheet of plywood in the meantime to use for workspace. Here's a better shot of the fridge in its new home. The fridge fit the cabinet like a glove which was awesome.
And here are the new countertops! I went with a classic white quartz slab which pairs nicely with the black cabinets. The industrial pull-down nozzle faucet works well in this space.
Another shot of the countertops from the side. I can finally appreciate how much better this kitchen flows now that the island is in its place.
And here we are.... the kitchen cabinets and countertops are in!
