kitchen reveal!

The contractors put the finishing touches on the kitchen on Monday.  I still have not unpacked any boxes, but I was able to get things cleaned up enough tonight to take some picture for you.  So, without further ado, here is our new kitchen!

Looking in from the living/dining room (remember when there was a wall there?  I can hardly even remember the house that way!) 

We are loving having this huge counter and all the extra seating too!  It's hard to tell size from the pictures, but the peninsula measures 9.5' long and 4' wide.  There are standard sized cabinets on the kitchen side, and 12" deep cabinets on the other side, so lots of storage space :)

Things you might like to know...

The cabinets came from Conestoga Wood Cabinet Makers Choice and the doors and drawer fronts are the from the Shaker Collection.

Our counters are Dallas White granite, which is kind of an off white with charcoal grey and egglpant purple specks in it.

The floors are a wide plank, carbonized bamboo and they are throughout the whole house (yay for no more painted sub-floor!!!!!)

The back splash is this tile from Lowes with pewter grout.

Wall color is Benjamin Moore Palladian Blue.

Pendant lights came from here.

Did I miss anything?

And just in case you've forgotten what the kitchen used to look like, you can see it here :)

just a peek at the progress...

Floors go in this weekend!  I think I'll wait until everything is done before I post more pictures.

almost there!

Counters are in and all the cabinets are hung!  Tomorrow all the doors and drawers get installed and tile work begins :)  Here are some pictures from this afternoon...

kitchen update

I took pictures a few days ago to share, but things have been a little crazy around here the past week (that is a story for another post) and I never got those pictures up.  So, this is where we are at as of this afternoon...

All but one of the base cabinets are installed plus most of the wall cabinets.  My oven and microwave are hooked up and ready for use (yay!)  There was a problem with the fridge cabinet, so we are waiting for 3 new pieces to be shipped before they are installed.  That blue tape of the floor is roughly where the counter will come out to. 

The cabinets behind the dishwasher and shop vac are my "hutch" piece.  The top cabinets will actually sit on the granite, so they won't be installed until the granite goes in next week.

The view into the living/dining room.  The cabinet on the left will be my trash pull outs, then sink, dishwasher and a small cabinet.

And here is the view from the great room.  There are a total of 4 cabinets on this side of the peninsula, the one in the corner (left) still needs to be build.
Things are coming along quite nicely, and pretty quickly too.  I love watching our new space take shape!  Back with more pictures soon :)  And I am happy to answer any questions in the comment section.
