The kitchen project continues!! In the the last post I left off with the cabinets having been painted…now…it’s time for the new floors! We decided to go with an engineered bamboo floating floor from Lumbar Liquidators. I’ve been pretty excited for this particular update since that meant removing the stained carpet in the dining room and hallway. I knew the end result would look so much better.
Just as a little factoid about our home…when we moved in there happened to be 15 different kinds of flooring. Yes. 15. I am not exaggerating. Almost every room had it’s own type of flooring/carpet. So we have been working on fixing that and these spaces are pretty much last on the re-flooring list. We might recarpet the sitting room…but not anytime soon 😉
Here’s what the space looked like before Nathan started ripping up carpet.
Then the work began!
That same weekend Nathan built the forms and poured the first two slabs for the concrete countertops. He’s done a few in the past for other people and I’ve always loved how they’ve turned out. Now it’s our turn!!
We did try something new…the little pieces you can barely see are pieces of glass. Not sure if they will really show up…but it doesn’t hurt to try! We bought most of the supplies from this website.
Now I’ll show you what the kitchen/dining room looked like after the new floor was done.
SOOOOOOO much better, right?! I told Nathan even if we stopped here, I’d still love it. But…we most certainly are not stopping here! Still more to do! But, what had we done before we even started the kitchen saga? Glad you asked.
1991 called, they want their kitchen back. Actually remind…they don’t. 90’s decor is dead, never to be resurrected. (You can check out some of the updates we’ve made to this space in previous posts like removing wallpaper and moving the desk/dining area)
So what’s left to be done?
Also: switch out appliances to SS (when we can), replace the sink and faucet, add a tile backsplash, all counters will be replaced, and finishing details like trim around the top of the cabinets and the front of the breakfast bar.
There’s much more to come! Stay tuned!
Press on and have a great weekend!
