Counter Top and Appliances

Things are moving along!  The quartz counter tops were installed and all the appliances are working.  I have begun to move things upstairs from the basement back into my lovely new cabinets. Finally can cook some meals.  Next up:  The porcelain tiles back splash and the Xeon under cabinet lighting. Tiles are on order from Canton Tile Distributors. Installation around March 20th. THEN the kitchen part will be finished. We have some baseboards to finish in the kitchen and dining area yet.

 I can not say enough great things about my KitchenAid Induction Cooking Surface range! Never going back to another type of cooking. So fast and responsive, and absolutely nothing sticks to the surface. Energy efficient.  First time I've had an over range microwave.  I like it.  We had it installed just slightly higher than most. 

I LOVE, love, my new Blanco Silgranit Diamond series 64/40 sink! I ordered it from www.Buildcom. They have great prices on everything. I am loving the stainless steel grates in the bottoms too. Well worth it to add those. They have little 'feet' on the bottom and so the grate sits up just slightly off the bottom of the sink. Also purchased the matching color drain baskets. I am very pleased with the size of the larger of the two bowls. Big pans with long handles fit down in it making clean-up easy. In the area behind the sink (picture below) we are having a decorative addition in that space.  It will be of the same tile but just different size tiles laid in different direction so as to give a 'framed in' picture like look. That should give it a little interest over that large space. The wires hanging down are for the under cabinet lighting.

Have placed my coffee maker under that longer cabinet next to the refrigerator. All the coffee suppies handy right above it. 
 Things will look a lot different with the back splash tiled and under cabinet lights! In the meantime before that is done, it has been great to play in my new kitchen.
Here is the sample board we picked our tile from, a porcelain tile by Gazzini.
