Kitchen Renovation - Week Four - Thursday

kitchen renovations, counter tops, Formica, Southern Kitchen Designs
We had no idea after the flurry on Monday and Tuesday that Wednesday and Thursday would be more of the same.

The different crews work together all the time so it was like a renovation ballet.  
It was the big day for the counter tops to be installed. 

I chose black matte Formica over stone.

Previously the kitchen had black Formica installed back in 1960. 

No chips.

No cracks.

Good enough recommendation for me.

The door stood open to everyone bringing things in and taking things out.

Look the plumbers were working to install the kitchen sink and dishwasher.

I chose a deep stainless sink.

The stove moved back into position.

It had lived most of the time in the breakfast room and on sunny days out on the patio.

Look there are handles on the cabinets.

More about those later.

The cabinet guy designed the counter top to run the entire length of this wall of cabinets separating the upper and lower cabinets.

I cannot even describe how they were able to bring it into the house.

It's twelve feet long.

As you can see a peek of the laundry room way at the other end.

Not much done there yet.

Smallest part of the renovation taking the most time.

Thank you, Greg, of Southern Kitchen Designs.

I will be back with more renovations soon.

See y'all!

  9. Love all the colors and the countertops! You will love having everything at your fingertips now. All that cabinet storage! YES!

  10. I hope you didn't pay too much for counter tops that you won't be using. But...that arrangement is a nice statement!!! It looks gorgeous! Cheap aluminum sinks work! I'm all for that!!! I want to see those handles on the cabinets up close!

    Did you get all new appliances? Did you get a new sink faucet?

    Your kitchen looks fantastic. Could I see it in person? Yes, I am inviting myself over. lol You can come and see my pink living room and dark aqua library. Next time I see you, I will have to ask about the process and how to work with a crew like you did. We'll need to do that for the bathrooms and kitchen. Katie and I just decided to nix the island in the kitchen, put in a spacious pantry and put a kitchen table and chairs in the center of the kitchen. As it is, our island is moveable, even though it doesn't look like it. It's heavy enough to remain where it is.

    Again, your kitchen is great, and I'm glad you had a wonderful crew who you could work with. If you have that, the rest is kind of smooth. Maybe?
