Finally, those years of living in tiny rentals and gazing longingly at home photos and magazines would pay off!
Asked if we could trade them in… could we paint them?
We shopped for all different kinds of counters, knowing that we wanted something solid-surface. Andy felt “meh” about it, the way he does about anything trendy that he hasn’t had a chance to adapt to yet. It’s so easy to sweep crumbs from the counter right into the sink, without that annoying little sink ledge that collects dirt and grime.It was a weird situation where we needed something between the fridge and the wall so you could open the freezer door all the way, but if we did a full-width cabinet there, it would take away precious counter space.
I had one that didn’t and the subs didn’t show up on a regular basis so the project took longer than it should have, costing us more. I had a number of conversations with him and he just hemmed and hawed about how he couldn’t do anything about it. I think hiring a professional home remodeling contractor is the smart idea as you can stay away from all mess while re do the kitchen. All of my mistakes can be traced to a desire to “cut corners’ and save money. But the marble floor tiles cracked in my 1925 settling house because the tile wasn’t floated properly on concrete.

Saved some money only to discovery that he installed the granite incorrectly: it has cracked all around the sink. I just had a custom kitchen cabinet maker come out and he told me everything that was wrong with them: pretty much everything. It may not be what you set out for, but then again you may not have even liked what you envisioned once done. But something went terribly wrong and the girl learned lots of lessons and to this day, has a kitchen for which she is incredibly grateful, but which looks nothing like what she originally intended to create and kinda bums her out from time to time, when she forgets to be thankful for the newness and freshness of it.
You know how they have all the little cabinet doors on display and you can choose the color, finish and style you like best?
They were a weird muddy brown color with greenish undertones. I tried to find a professional to paint the cabinets because we didn’t trust ourselves to get the perfect finish, and it was waaay out of budget. I didn’t love it, but maybe it would fix the cream problem?
Here’s a closer-up photo of the counters, with the blue walls in the background, and a sheet of the slate tile. He thought they were bathroom knobs and it might be weird to have them in the kitchen.
We had to twist the faucet so the knob is on the left side, which feels so awkward and wrong.
What do you get when you make a bunch of safe choices, combined with decisions based on what other people say you must want?
Five years into making lots and lots of decisions – and many mistakes!
I never would’ve thought to install one, but we lived in a rental once that had a hot water dispenser, and we used it alllll the time.
Our microwave is super fancy, with a touch screen, but we didn’t pay much for it. And check out this sweet, deep pot drawer that has a little lid drawer on top of it. And we have this tall skinny cabinet, which we actually had to include to make our kitchen work. And now we have a place dedicated to wine glasses, champagne flutes, and… um, juice. Have you ever redecorated a room and been less than thrilled with the results?
Andy will make your kitchen dreams come true one of these days!
He also didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings so when things were installed incorrectly or the wrong things installed (if you notice that all of the bathroom fixtures are the same except for one, doesn’t that tell you something is wrong?) he never said anything.
You have sort all the mess very efficiently and your kitchen looks fab after remodeling. My sister hired a contractor and she is pretty much satisfied with him. I wanted granite countertops, marble floor tiles, beautiful cherry wood cabinets (remember this was 10 years ago), warm limestone backsplashes and stainless steel appliances for my small kitchen.
I shopped for months for the perfect granite slabs for the countertop and then went with a recommendation for an installer that was clearly not experienced.
