Cabinet Installation Day 2

We came home the second day of cabinet installations to find that all the cabinets had been installed!! WOOHOO!!

Upon further inspection we found that actually part of the cabinetry had been installed incorrectly. This is the first hiccup we’ve experienced, so we calmly called our contractor and the carpenter. It was after hours, so we left voicemails and we’re hoping to get in touch with them in the morning before we leave for work. It’s nothing major, so don’t worry, I’m sure it’ll get taken care of. And it was in this area around the radiator, where our kitchen designer had to get creative to say the least!

They also put the stove and dishwasher in their places. It’s all starting to come together!! Oh and they added the crown molding on the top of those incredibly tall cabinets and added the shelving for the cabinets.

    So exciting!!! We are in the middle of a kitchen redo too! Our faucet just went in yesterday! Along with the new dishwasher(we didn’t have one before) is now hooked up!! That may be my favorite new part 🙂 no more washing dishes by hand!!

    We’ve been looking around for backsplash. The area behind the sink, stove, and counters is just so bare… we can’t seem to make up our minds about which tiles we like… or if we prefer small bricks. It’s going to be a long process!

    And p.s. my boyfriend is obsessed with the faucet you got. We don’t need a new one, but if we did, that’s the one we’d get!

    Steph – Oh I can’t imagine not having a dishwasher!

    Megan – I love the look of the glass mosiac subway tiling for a backsplash. We had an interesting obstacle in that we have REAL subway tiling on the wall to about 4 feet and the previous owners used liquid nails to attach a laminate backsplash. So we needed something that could be glued back on.

    Wicked jealous, I love it. My wife and I talk about our kitchen re-do all the time, even though we don’t have a dime put away for it. But when we do, it will be so fun. The kitchen is by far my favorite room in the house.

    Jen: The sink and faucet look beautiful. What I can see of the blacksplash and spice rack, it looks fantastic too. I love, love, love the Vulga Blue granite in our kitchen and I think the glass tile backsplash, although very pricey, really gave the kitchen the splash of color and uniqueness we were looking for! Ok, I really love the chandeliers….they are a real conversation piece and also unique (not for everyone, especially if you are in to simple, clean lines).

    Jennifer – Thanks!

    Joe – The kitchen is our fav room too. A renovation is a fun/exciting/stressful time. Good luck if you ever get around to it.

    Nancy – Thanks – I need to write up posts about the backsplash and spice rack/shelf. We just painted today so it’s all coming together!

    It’s so funny – after reading your post on your kitchen and fancy new faucet, I saw the same faucet while at an open house and was showing off all its features to Andrew. Very cool!

    I see that your faucet is on the right. Are you right-handed? I have seen it both ways and need to make a decision. Thanks.

    Yes we are both right handed. I actually never thought about putting it on the left.

    Yes the green patina looks cool on roofs and awnings. Although we’ll only be at the apartment occasionally and I admit if we arrived after being gone for many months and found the sink had turned into green patina, I might freak out!
