Up and Running!

We  have a functioning kitchen!! We still cant believe how much Steve and Jordan have done in 7 days work, we are so lucky to have their help! For now we have a temporary sink, and are going to wait to move the new appliances into place. 

The only cabinet left to add is the one above the fridge, and then its on to tiling and painting!

There were endless options for floor tile, but we finally narrowed it down and ordered it last night. Everything else in the room is pretty light, so we went with an imperial grey, contemporary, porcelin tile. There are subtle patterns on it, but nothing too overpowering. I can't wait until it comes in!

We loved the rectangular shaped tile, but it didn't come in a small enough size, so we're going with 12x12 and are going to stagger them. The best part is that they have rectified edges, so the grout lines will be TINY!
I finally feel like it is coming together.
And I heard a rumor that the lower cabinets were installed today and we MIGHT (fingers crossed) have a temporary sink!
Still working on the paint color and the backsplash tile, though. What would you suggest?!
