Quickies - Kitchen Choices

kitchen renovation choices, Mannington flooring, pewter gray
I have a vision in my mind about the kitchen renovation so it is rather easy to make quick decisions about choices so far.

Flooring was chosen in ten minutes.

It had to be vinyl because of the odd shape of the kitchen and the three slight changes in the level of the floor.

I knew I wanted gray.

I knew I wanted a pattern.

I knew I wanted something that did not show dirt.

We had a Mannington floor installed back in 1992, and it held up except for a couple of issues.

I narrowed down the paint color to four until I had a sample of the cabinets.

Easy choices - Victorian Pewter paint and antique white cabinets with a pewter glaze.

I chose a simple cottage style - resembles a plain Shaker style - for the cabinets. (Not the sample shown.)

As we work to clear out twenty-seven years of collected junk, the cabinets are being made.

Demo Day will begin when the cabinets arrive in the warehouse.

See y'all!
