Every weekend we diligently visit our condo. The girls at the sales office give us the keys and we do a quick 10 min walk through to check out the progress.
This weekend was super special. The cabinets are IN!
And we couldn't be happier! Seriously... it is incredible to see progress and to see the choices you made in the space of a 3 hour appointment come to life beautifully. So far we are absolutely digging everything going into the condo. Especially our two tone kitchen. We paid extra $250 to have the cabinet differ in colour and it was worth every penny.
Also worth every penny? Extra cabinets under the island instead of seating! Love them, so much!
Next to the kitchen is a little desk area. Perfect for a laptop station and paying bills. The space felt awkward before the desk went in and now I love it. I totally get it and it totally works.
In other progress news, the bathrooms have tile on walls and floors. LOVE that we paid extra for brick pattern. Every time I see it I'm happy we made that choice. Now the tile is just waiting for grout: white standard grout for the walls and off-white upgraded grout to go with the off white brick patterned floor tile. It will be gorgeous when done.
After our 10 minute tour there are 3 things on my mind:
#1 - the hardware I chose for all the cabinetry was basic. I chose the simplest ones with the idea that these can be changed out at any time. Guess what? I love them and won't be changing them. They work perfectly with the shaker cabinet profiles and with the colours of the cabinets. Money saved!
#2 - I can't wait for the granite to be installed. Granite for bathrooms and desk area were our most expensive upgrade and I'm anxious to see the pieces that go in.
#3 - The space between the island and the fridge is very narrow. I am so glad I let hubby talk me into a french-door fridge.
Upgrades to date are: (1) two tone kitchen; (2) level 2 cabinets; (3) brick pattern tile on both floors and walls.
