Creating beautiful things… repurposing vintage & found items-transforming them & combining them to create beautiful new pieces. All was not going smoothly since a surprise came in the form of additional electrical, plumbing and gas lines that needed to be run. Because the end of the kitchen by the pantry and the back door was freezing cold all winter I knew I needed to do a little something extra for insulation on the floor.
This did made it easy to work with each individual piece, to hide the electrical cords. In this last week we’ve already made some marks on the marble but they just leave a gray cast, which hello, the countertops are already white/gray anyway. I tore the outside-facing walls and floor out, sprayed some icynene spray foam insulation and sheetrocked things back up. I used to work for an outfit that did the sprayfoam so that was a really nice score.
Here again I wanted to do something extra on the cold end of the room so I found some insulated backer board. In Mark Egerstrom’s 1,200-square foot West Hollywood house, the wood floors of the kitchen extend out to an adjoining deck through glass shower doors, creating the illusion of a much bigger space.
I also shopped to make sure I was getting the quality they promised even though the price was low. I, too, will be remodeling within the next year and I have the same faucet requirements. Thanks for sharing your beautiful kitchen with us. I just love all your touches.
I absolutely love your blog.. Pleasant colors & theme. I decided to do the kitchen my way – one step at a time. See this post with cream subway tiles in my last house The soft turquoise tile is the perfect compliment to the Carrera marble counters. At 7 weeks old, have to wake her up after 6 hours because of nursing.
