Cabinets and Countertops

 The cabinets are officially installed.  Of course they may be uninstalled soon because Mitch is freaking out about the cabinets being on top of the laminate flooring.  He is afraid that they will end up buckling since it is a floating floor and there is no way for them to move.  Anyone have any experience with this?  Our contractor says he does it this way all the time and never has had any problems.  Mitch isn't convinced though.

Here's our sink.  I can't wait to have a kitchen sink again.  The things we take for granted!!

The countertops are being templated today.  Woohoo.  They are scheduled to be installed next Monday.  In a week I should have a some what functional kitchen again.  Picking out the countertop was probably the hardest part of the kitchen remodel so far.  When we started I was pretty set on Silestone, but someone at one of the granite places we visited talked me out of it.  So we spent way too long trying to find granite that we both liked.  The problem was we didn't really find anything that we were in love with.  Well, except for some high end marble that was not very practical.  Then we stopped at a place to check out some soapstone and the person that helped us happened to be our neighbor.   He showed us Caesarstone's quartz surface, which we both loved.  So basically we ended up right back where we started.  Caesarstone and Silestone are basically the same product just different brands.  We choose Pebble, which has a honed finish.  Hopefully ours will look as good as the photo below.

I am trying to decide if I should hold off on kitchen updates until we are finished, so that I can have a big reveal.  Or just keep posting updates so that you guys can see the progress.  Any thoughts?

I am very much enjoying the progress posts. Please continue!

(Also, I wanted soapstone for our counters, but damn it's expensive!)

I love the progress reports too - especially since I'm living so vicariously through your kitchen. I LOVE the countertops and the floor is gorgeous!

Ok, so from my experience (admittedly many years ago) making/installing custom cabinets: if they are installed properly they are much more secured to the wall than resting on the floor. That little section of floor would not expand much even with nothing on top of it, and you honestly should be fine. I've installed cabinets both on top of and behind flooring, and never had a problem. Hope this helps.

It is coming along so well! I love your new floor and that color of the countertop is very nice. I am sure you are missing your sink, too...and pretty much the rest of it right?? Doesn't look like too much longer. :)

How are you doing this with 3 kids going to school in the house?

Oh my goodness it is going to be beautiful!

Our cabinets sit on a floating floor we bought it this way but have been in the house for 8 years......no problems to report.

Happy sewing if and when you ever get the chance again :0)

The hardwork behind the making of these beautiful cabinets is really commendable....your sanitary items are really very stylish as shown in one of your shared photo... :)
