Yesterday we spent a good part of the day looking at the finishes for the kitchen. The first stop was the granite place, where we decided on this lovely slab of Crema Bordeaux granite -- actually two sister slabs, which is good since we have a big island in the kitchen plan that will use most of one slab.
Then off to the tile place, where we decided on this colorful porcelain tile. We decided to put a lot of color and pattern into the floor and counter top because the cabinets and backsplash are going to be white. You can also see the paint swatch in this photo, although the color is a bit off. (The color is Butterfly Wing from Freshaire.)
Things are moving along. The radiant flooring was installed yesterday and the city inspectors should be here this week. After that the walls and flooring can be installed and things will really start happening!
