All the appliances are installed.
I got home from work last night to find my fridge and dishwasher in place.
I have not had occasion to use the dishwasher yet (I may give it a test run tonight just to see how it sounds, etc.).
And I haven't moved things into the new fridge yet.
But the icemaker and water dispenser seem to work just fine.
I want to give everything a good cleaning and get the shelf liners in before I move stuff back into the kitchen.
I started today by cleaning some of the cabinets, including the glass-doored ones. They look so nice.
I figure I will use the weekend to get stuff headed out of the spare room and back into the kitchen.
It took me a good solid day to get things out, I figure it will take at least that long to put it all back together.
Plus some stuff will not be coming back in, and I need to decide what that stuff will be.
When I emptied the kitchen it was simply putting things in boxes. This will mean more sorting and organizing.
Also, here is the shot of the finished floor that I have been meaning to post. It is now George-tested and George-approved. He likes flopping down on it and rolling around.
And, on my way to work today, I stopped by another tile place to look at backsplash options.
I found some beautiful stuff.
I think I may have found what I want.
The only problem is it takes at least a month to get it because it is made-to-order tile.
I want to make that decision and place the order by Monday.
For now, I have some (more) sample tiles to take home and look at in all the different lights.
I know it is just tile and if I get tired of the color I choose, I can replace it. But at $14-20 a square foot for some of these options, I want to pick something I really love.
To put the prices in perspective, the floor tile cost $1.79 a square foot. But it also was not handmade and special ordered.
So that means the kitchen may not be done until mid-November.
