Cabinets and Counter Tops Are In!

The long awaited day has arrived! My white kitchen is becoming a reality. The cabinets were delivered and installed over a couple of days. First the cabinets against the wall, and then the island. I would come home from work and a new cabinet would be in place. It felt like Christmas everyday! As the cabinets were being assembled we had our last appointment to approve the slab of quartz we chose for the counter tops. I still found it hard to picture it in the kitchen, but there was no denying its beauty! As with all professionals that have worked in our home Mike from VHI cabinetry was fantastic. He answered any questions we had and made short work of the installation. I know I have been continuing to praising all the tradesmen who have worked in our home, but its true all of them have been great! Once the cabinets were finished it was time for the stone to be delivered. I took the day off for this. I wanted to be present while my dream of white cabinets and counter tops was becoming a reality!

They’re here! I am already trying to decide what to put in the class front cabinets. I know a bit ahead of myself…

This is Mike the cabinet installer. He was a beast! He put the entire kitchen together by himself.

Voila’, the first piece of the puzzle: Done!

Now off to approve our slab of stone!

This is our slab!

Approval definitely granted!

The stone has arrived! You can’t see me but I am jumping up and down with excitement!

Jeff, Rob, John and Sam from North American Stone make it look easy!

This sightline from the family room will be gorgeous!

The piece of stone for our island. It still boggles my mind to say the word island in relation to our kitchen.

I am not going to lie. When the stone was all in I started to cry. It was so beautiful and I have waited so long the moment just took over.

We were gong to get a pull down faucet, but it did not come in the color that we wanted. Now, I am glad I love detail in this one!

We decided on a taupe color for the island.

Instead of stainless steel we went with a SILGRANITE white sink. These are the things you have to take a leap of faith with. In this case I love it!

There is still so much to do before we are done with this project! But, every time I see this kitchen not only will it bring me joy it will motivate me to keep moving! At this point I honestly do not know what next week will bring, but I promise it will be worth coming back! Thanks for letting me share with you!
