Shore Kitchen Floor Installed!

Monday, August 26, 2013

Yea the shore kitchen floor is in.  Excuse the post grout grimey mess.

The original plan was to use the same tiles in the bathroom and carry them through to the hallway and kitchen.  Instead, we went with a sort of similar tile that was half the price.  Still not sure if it was the right decision but I do like it a lot better than the laminate that was there before.

The cabinets are being installed now.  Woo-hoo.

In case you missed it, catch up on the shore kitchen by checking out an unplanned renovationthe idea board and the demolition.

  1. I haven't seen the original tiles you liked so I can tell you without prejudice, these look great. They look really good. That is going to be such a great color to decorate against.

    And I'm not just saying that because I have the same shoes.

    1. Aren't they the best? I'm never going back to regular tennis shoes.

    1. Thanks Christy. (Generally I keep the exact name of these things because of questions like yours but I can't seem to locate my receipt so I don't have the style number.) I do know that its made by Roca tile, they are 12x24 inch tiles and its $3/sq foot at Classic Tile. (The tile I was originally going to use which I think is nicer but twice the price was 12x24 EdiMax Space Spaz Porcelain.) I want to say its this one:http://rocatilegroup.com/products/index.php/avila.html but I couldn't be sure without finding my receipt.

      hope that helps!

    2. I just realized that I should have included my email address. It's loopydivachristy@gmail.com. I do have to do this on a super tight budget. Our insurance is only covering the floor, but I'd rather get the experts to do the cabinets and the floor at the same time. Is that logical? :) I hope so!

  3. Thank you, it does! I wanted to do a stained concrete floor, but I also want to level it. The contractor I talked with isn't sure how two types of concrete would work, or how pricey it would be.. I don't want or need a super fancy kitchen, I just want it to be functional. Thanks to a small leak in the line leading to our ice-maker, I get a new floor. And, since we're getting a new floor, I'm getting new cabinets. Are you familiar with the book If You Give A Mouse A Cookie? :)

    Our kitchen was once a carport. A previous owner turned it into a very poorly designed kitchen. I'm sure that his wife was happy with the extra space, but I would bet she was not consulted when it came to cabinet placement.

    Thanks so much for your speedy response! If you have any advice, I would be happy to hear it. I've never demolished a kitchen! I'm a bit nervous and stressed!

    1. If your kitchen is already on a slab, I'm not sure why you couldn't have a concrete floor. It sounds like your contractor just isn't experienced in that particular project so best to get someone who is rather than have him learning on your job. Hope that helps!
