We absolutely love the kitchen. The dark cabinets look great with the new stainless appliances and are nicely balanced by the light countertops. The only problem is, the kitchen only exists as a picture on the internet. Life in the real world is a whole ‘nother matter.
Israel left last night asking if it was alright if he arrived this morning at 6:30 a.m. I set the alarm early in preparation for a big day of kitchen remodeling. Technically, and to his credit, Israel did not actually say he was arriving at 6:30, just if it was OK if he did. He didn’t. He did arrive at 9 a.m., but made up for the tardy arrival by calling it a day at 10 a.m. Unbelievably, the kitchen was perfect.
The pantries were positioned in a non-standard, but super-convenient horizontal orientation. A lot of the kitchen was left open by positioning the remaining cabinets randomly in the dining room giving the kitchen a really spacious feel. Hopefully, we will have the opportunity tomorrow to make a few small changes, but we have not heard from the contractor. They aren’t returning our calls.
Looking forward to wrapping this all up on Saturday as scheduled! We’ve loved discovering how expensive and filling it is to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner in downtown Bethesda.
