THIS IS MY KITCHEN RIGHT NOW!
WE ARE REMODELING IT.
(There is a before picture, but it is on Tom's phone, not mine.)
We actually have the subfloor down again, and the wiring like, started.
The white thing in the wall is actually the shelves in the bathroom, and the shiney thing is the back of the bathroom medicine cabinet.
I'm going to have a dishwasher, and an even tile floor! (Not shitty linoleum was a bad subfloor!) And tile counter tops! (With MORE counter top space!) and a microwave vent hood <3
Here is my dishwasher: http://www.homedepot.com/p/203947135?N=c3njZ1z10atjZz2Z1z10atj It was a damn good price at 450! (Seeing my price limit was 500, and without the sale I would not have been able to get one this nice or quiet.)
This is the Microwave Hood: http://www.maytag.com/-%5BMMV6180WW%5D-1101129/MMV6180WW/ (roughly, It's in the same models, I think) for 120
I'm really glad I did research of dishwashers weeks ago. It was totally worth it to walk in and be like "Oh fuck, this is a steal." and order one. If anyone needs a good website about features on dishwashers / sound levels / etc, let me know. I found a pretty decent one that helped me make decisions.
I don't know shit about hoods, but for 120 I was not going to pass it up. (It was a display model they were getting rid of, and 20% off the clearance price.)
At this point Tom needs to get the electrical done, the dishwasher hook up in, and then we are good to throw up walls and tile the floor. Tiling will probably be my job. I plan to do pretty large floor tiles, medium-sized tile for the counter tops, and glass tile for the back splash. I'm really excited. They're going to be mostly earth-tones, because the back splash I chose it mostly earthy tones.
That being said, the counters may just be white. Also I'm going to look into getting a 1ft butcher's block counter top section. We have a section that may be good to be just a built-in cutting board.
