Being away from the blog this much is not something I planned on, trust me – I would love to check in more often but time has not been on my side lately *plus I started a new job …. again sorry, but don’t give up on me yet…
Luckily – there is a lot happening over at the house, with only one month to go.
Today I wanted to give you a kitchen update. The pictures are not super sharp but as you can imagine I am glad for every or whatever picture is emailed to me. Its my only way to stay connected and follow the project (being so far away).
We first received the pics above from Åraslöv Kök, showing our cabinets being prepped for delivery. A few days later, one of their guys started installing.
Also, above you see how the last top layer of our concrete floors turned out! Love what I am seeing and cannot wait to put my feet on it this Christmas!
We chose a custom built kitchen – a local carpenter in the south of Sweden focusing on Kitchens in solid wood! I am SOO glad we chose them over anyone else.
It might appear a little green but as always the pics dont show the exact true color. Its a warm light gray color with a drop of yellow if anything…
Inside each cabinet we chose white washed pine. Big Looove on that!
This will be our little “so called pantry – that along with the fridge & freezer on the opposite side is placed just “outside” the kitchen. Since we wont have any upper cabinets, the pantry is meant to help with storage.
In this picture you see the pantry space to the left, so outside but still connected. Another thing I wanted to connect was the fan – there are many different options out there but I really wanted one that matched the kitchen cabinets so we had made this box. It turned out great, however it was supposed to be the same color as the walls (crispy white) but there was a little miscommunication. We decided to move in, see how it feels and looks together with the stove and all. Its an easy fix if needed…
Another detail you spot in the picture above is our stairs to the right. The stairs really turned out great. I got a lot of new images, promise to show you all next time..
Here you see David from Helsingborgs Sten who came to double check the measurements for the counter tops. We decided on Silestone and Lagoon, a light white/grayish color that I hope will fit well with our kitchen. Countertops will be installed this week. I just have to say how impressed and glad I am that everyone is delivering when they say they will. Happy with our choices of people and companies to work with this summer house project of ours! It makes all the difference!
Here is a nice overview (a bit blurry). To the left you have a tall cabinet as well as a custom built bench. A big island is coming soon, really looking forward to that. The space just outside the kitchen up to the right is where the fridge&freezer will be (again, opposite the pantry).
Obviously there are a few details missing but again its all going according to plan and schedule. I noticed here they put on one of the copper lighting railings *the other ones are in our storage so have to wait until we move in before putting them up.
That’s all the Kitchen update I have today! Stay tuned for more in the next few days!
Have a wonderful Sunday.
