NuCrete concrete countertop in Irvington Industrial Modern Kitchen project. We had that same one in our dining room when we moved in. It took us forever to find a replacement so I think we had to live with it for 2 years! This is where I added a pop of color to our all white kitchen!
I’m sure it would crush some fantasies which eventually are crushed after much effort from the homeowner and architect/designer/estimator. When we got to a piece that would have the cord, he notched out an area for the cord to come through at the top, and put an indention down the piece, with the router, so the cord would have somewhere to sit.
At the end of week 1 the kitchen looks much the same as it did after the demolition. We discussed a few different design options and decided that keeping it simple was the best idea. I tried to think of ways to have a proper triangle working space but in the end it was impossible.
It was a lot of money and you better hope everything works because in the end its buried under about an inch of mortar and tile. And after using the grill to toast bagels and cook the kids’ chicken pieces, we decided to return the toaster oven we bought. Most of the people who will answer you don’t have a clue – even if they are professional remodelers, they don’t know your space.
Now that the process is almost over, we’re glad we decided to up the budget and get (almost) everything that we wanted. Wait…the price for the subway tile is a little low b/c about a year after being here i had the guy come back and tile the entire wall behind the stove.
