Our kitchen…so close!

I owe you a kitchen remodel update. I also owe you a bathroom remodel update, but let’s stick with the kitchen remodel for now. Deal? Thus far, we’ve chatted about our marble countertops, our cabinet installation, and our hardwood floors. And let’s not forget about where we started. Now, let’s talk tile. We went with counter to ceiling white subway tile  with delorean gray grout. It’s a lot of tile, but it’s clean and subtle enough that it doesn’t take over the room. The island will do most of the talking in this kitchen, so once that’s in (it’s only halfway installed in the photos), I’m hoping it will steal the show. All in all, the kitchen is a functioning space, and you can see the outline of where we’re going. Perhaps it actually looks like a kitchen?! I was dealing with some mad sun in these photos, so they aren’t the best, but again, hopefully you can get an idea of how things are shaping up…

What’s still to come? Let’s see if I can remember all that’s still in store…

1.) Installation of cabinet faces/hardware

2.) Installation of open shelving

3.) Paint wood windows

4.) Trim

5.) Final coat on wood floors

6.) Installation of island – only half is in place in the photos

7.) Installation of butcher block island top

8.) Decor, decor, decor!

Oh yes, and the unpacking of dozens of kitchen boxes is in store too. Ugh. Makes me tired just thinking about it. Sometimes I hesitate sharing these photos as there’s still much to do to make it look like an actual kitchen, but hopefully you can see the potential in this room:).

    Oh my goodness! Those pendant lights have been on my wishlist for YEARS. Where did you get them?? I pinned them a long time ago after seeing them in Made By Girl’s kitchen, and I always said they’d be in my kitchen one day!

    LOVE it! I am a huge fan of subway tile & also having it go all the way to the ceiling. It makes a simple, clean and modern impact. Looks like an entertaining kitchen to me… ;)

    The remodel looks amazing! My hubby and I are jealous of the sq. footage you have for the kitchen. We are re-doing ours right now but only have 10×10 ft! Yours is so inspiring. Love the marble. xo kk

    Well done! May I ask who supplied your cabinets?

    How gorgeous! Are you painting the wood windows throughout? The warm wood looks so great with the brick, and painted windows get so sticky! :( I hate mine, and wish they were still just wood. You could always stain/ebonize the wood rather than paint to get a similar effect but avoid the build-up and stickiness…all the designers are doing it. ;-)
