The Countertops Are In…

…and they sure do look amazing!  As I mentioned when we ordered them we went with Giallo Ornamental.  We love the pattern and color!  We think it helps to keep things light and bright in the room, yet still has lots of interest.  Here are a few shots of the completed granite!

Here is our new, amazing peninsula that opens up from the kitchen to the family room!  We are in absolute love with it!  The new cooktop hasn’t been secured in place yet… just set in its spot after the hole was cut.  We hope to get it all hooked up this weekend.  As you can see though we still have to complete the wiring to it and install the vent for the built-in downdraft.  Hopefully the hubby can figure that out!

Here is our new stainless steel, under-mounted sink which we plan to finish the plumbing on this weekend!  I can’t wait to have a working sink in the kitchen again… washing dishes in a basin in the bathtub is getting really old really fast!

And here’s a little, last minute splurge (which the granite people didn’t charge us for!) in the laundry room!  I asked the installer last week if they could use the remnant pieces to make a countertop and backsplash for the base cabinet we installed a couple months ago. So glad I threw that out there… just goes to show that it never hurts to ask!  We plan to add hardware that will match the kitchen to help tie the two rooms together even more.

I am so glad to get the countertops checked off of the list… because this means we are now one HUGE step closer to having a usable kitchen (perhaps in another week?!?)
