As you all know from my previous post this is when we discovered the profile of the doors wasn't quite right. We have decided to keep them now that I have seen it all up as to me it is such a tiny little variation and the doors in the bathrooms will be changed over to panelled to match the kitchen. It seems that this was an M paperwork issue and not the kitchen company as such. So glad we made the last minute decision to have panelled doors in the bathrooms as I think the panelled just looks so pretty.
Kitchen will be installed in two bits, they will come back and put on the island skirting once our floors are put down.
The kitchen must have been put together on the Friday but I was unaware as I thought due to the door issue that it would not go up, it wasn't until very late Sunday that I made a last minute decision to duck out there just to check if our water tank had turned up and I also had a mat that I wanted to check the sizing of for the laundry. I was literally standing at the back bifold doors trying to see if they were open not even seeing the kitchen. I got quite a shock when I finally noticed it. Luckily a window was still open and the girls and I were able to get in to look. I'm such a chicken I made my daughter look it all over before I would actually myself look at it haha.
Our new kitchen
As you come down the hallway from front door.
Island end gables with skirting detail
Over head cupboards.
Banks of drawers either side of oven.
Open shelving above fridge space.
The laundry was something my husband and I came up with. I love open shelves to store baskets in. There is also a shelf in the middle up the top and underneath that we will put a rod to hang ironed clothes onto. I am so happy with this and can't wait to start doing laundry haha. It's missing doors on top on the far side and the kitchen company is going to pop them on after the build is over.
Shelf on top and rod to go underneath to hang things.
I am thrilled with it. The gabled ends and skirting feature on the island are perfect and exactly what we were hoping for. To think that we struggled to convey to M what it was we wanted and it was all up in the air on whether it could be done even right up to the day our block was being levelled. Overall happy with everything I am quite amazed really that we all managed to do this via email and pictures and that the kitchen company had never done this style of kitchen. Island is a great size and not so large that it obstructs the walkway to the front door.
Hope no one minds but I will probably post all these pics again once the caesarstone is on...and probably when the pendants are installed too. Caesarstone is due to be installed on the 25th of this month, woohoo!
In other amazing news we are booked to have our walk through on the 8th of March! They will then take 2 weeks to do any fixups needed and then they are allowing another 2 weeks for our bank to do their thing. Too exciting and I have so much I need to get ready still.
Hope everyone enjoyed the pics (sorry for the blurry ones) I'll keep them coming.
