Hello all, hope you had a wonderful weekend. We had a great weekend. The Mister went fishing, I did a little shopping, and J was a typical teenage boy, which means gaming! I thought I would show you the kitchen today. We have been in our home six years, although we were able to pick all flooring, countertops, tiles, etc., the choices were not always what I wanted. We have been slowly upgrading here and there, mostly in the kichen since it is the center of our home. We have a very open floor plan. When you come in the front door there is a foyer with the living room to the right and dining room to the left. From the front door when you look into the dining room you can see all the way into the kitchen.
The picture above is standing just inside the kitchen area. The showpiece of the kitchen is this 6x5 island. The first update we did was add granite. The builder had only about 8 choices and since I was not in love with any of them, we opted for laminate. We have added "Red Dragon" to the island. It is a beautiful red with black veining.
We painted the island black just before the new floors where laid a few weeks ago. It really pops with the red granite and reddish floor. This side of the island has six shelves. As you can guess, I am always adding and removing items from this area. Here is how it looks now.
On the other side of the island, coming out of the dining room is the kitchen desk area. This is where we charge laptops, i phones, i pods - you know all those things we cannot live without, but have those pesty cords! On all the rest of the countertops we did "Black Galaxy".
Next to the desk is the fridge, pantry and then the double ovens. I wanted black appliances, I know most people prefer stainless, just not for me.
Looks like I have ran out of room, so I will continue the rest of the kitchen tomorrow. I hope you enjoyed the kitchen so far and will come back for the rest. Thanks for all that stopped by to see my Secretary and left such sweet comments.
I will be joining the following parties:
