Tile and Wood

After a couple more days of scraping the old tile residual off the floor, the kitchen area was ready for the wood laminate floor to start going in! Mr. curiosity lurks just outside the door!This was a very exciting step! I know it will take a few days, maybe even a week, for the entire floor to get finished, but with the kitchen part almost done, the appliances and cabinets can go in! Appliances are scheduled for delivery on Wednesday and we just learned that the cabinets will arrive Tuesday or Wednesday as well! Hurray!
One big mistake was for the sliding glass doors. Somewhere along the lines, the measurements got off and we ordered the wrong size. Big Bummer. But Doug is working with Home Depot and we'll get it sorted, but obviously have to send them back, order the right ones, and wait, again, for their arrival. It's a drag but at least it's not an irrevocable mistake. With everything we've been ordering, it seemed almost inevitable that something like this would eventually happen.
Meanwhile, off the master bedroom the bathroom is looking like a bathroom! We love the tile we picked out and it looks so nice. The grout color is pewter! It really sets off the white with gray marble in the tile nicely. We also love the dark floor and think it will add a nice elegant touch to the whole room. Of course, it will better when it's clean! The toilet will be nicely hidden behind the shower and the double vanity will be spectacular. We planned to put some color tiles in the shower but we all forgot and now, I'm kind of glad we didn't. It looks sleek and nice with just the tiles. It's going to be so exciting when it's all done!
If the cabinets go in Tuesday, then we can have the countertop guy out Wednesday and with luck have the countertops and sink installed by March 11th! If we have a fully functioning kitchen by Mid-March, I'd be thrilled. But even without the countertops and sink, by Wednesday of this week we might have kitchen storage, a big refrigerator, a freezer, a range, an oven and a dishwasher! Wow, luxury awaits us!
