Kitchen Updates – Tile + Countertops!

If you remember, our kitchen originally looked like this when we moved in:

After taking out some walls, ripping up the floor, and painting the cabinets, we had a lot to do (err…our contractor had a lot to do).

Here are some updates over the last week or so…

Behold – TILES!

We chose to get our tile offset.

The start of a peninsula where a wall and wood paneling once was. (yes, that’s our Christmas tree in the background. I have been too busy with the bake sale to take it down!!)

And then we had GRANITE!

We chose black for the perimeter.

And we hand-selected this slab of Ecuadorian White (a tan-brown-beige-black granite).

Closer and closer to a Giada-esque kitchen. Hooray!

Here’s a quick before and after side by side:

Still to do:

  • select and install backsplash
  • select and install hardware
  • select and install pendant lights
  • install pantry cabinets
  • complete reassembly of cabinets
  • put stuff back in cabinets
  • new appliances
  • clean
  • enjoy!

We’re so close I can taste it! :)
