It’s an appliance party!

The changes in the kitchen have been less visible recently. Since the last update, the tiles were grouted and all of our appliances have come in! I worked from home the other day so I could be there for the deliveries. We cleared a space in the living room for the appliances since the kitchen isn’t ready for them yet.

We decided to get a small fridge since the space is so small. This LG model is one of the only ones sold that is 24″ by 24″. We went with all stainless steel and opted to not get a microwave. We just decided that the storage space was more important.

The contractors have patched up all the random plaster work including smoothing our the hideous popcorn ceiling that we were sporting.

Just disregard the nasty liquid nails residue on the subway tiling. It’s all going to be covered up again when the cabinets get installed. During one of our design ideas, we talked about exposing all the beautiful subway tiling. Thank goodness we didn’t go down that route. I don’t even think the liquid nails can come off those tiles…

And here’s a picture of the tile floor with the grout. I know some people were asking about what it looked like up close…

    What, what an amazing transformation. Everything looks fantastic. I’ve been looking at those metal-type backsplashes for when we re-do ours and I was a bit hesitant because while I like them I was afraid it would be too much. I like how you did it though so I’ll definitely have to keep some of this in my inspiration folder!

    I have loved these posts. Your kitchen looks amazing! Love all of the little touches (the spice rack, the cupboard doors that cover the radiator, etc.). Fantastic job!
