The cabinets arrived and are all in place; they look fabulous. Our specific requests (blocky feet with curved apron for the kitchen) and a custom cabinet copied from a picture I found are just perfection. The next step is making sure the stains and finishes are what we want (mid-tone oak with a flat finish; not everyone understands that shiny glossy is not always preferred).
Today I stopped by and picked up floor tile samples and carpet samples. It is so mind boggling I have been putting this off for weeks. We will take all the samples with us to the house and see if we can choose from these, or if we have to go back to the floor store and pick out some others. Luckily I know the wall paint colors so I have the samples of those to work with against the floor samples. We are leaning towards slate look floors in a rather uniform coloration; I don’t do “busy patterns” very well. The carpeted living and family room will coordinate, and the kitchen granites and backsplash will also coordinate. The bathrooms will be a pale neutral “linen” finish floor tile.
A few pics of baseboards and door trims are attached. The doorway into the laundry will be covered by a sliding barn door to be installed at some point.
