Another gorgeous kitchen on the way!

We are in the midst of creating yet another gorgeous kitchen. I am really beginning to love doing kitchens!

The clients are young and hip, but love classic design.  I suggested earthy tones and cool shades. I suggested the following design to the client and she immediately loved it!

Classic yet chic!

This is the old kitchen before we started demolishing:

We started off by demolishing the kitchen. The old cupboards, tiles, everything had to go.

After that, we laid the floor.  I suggested the following sample for vinyl flooring:

The client chose a similiar colour and design but in porcelain.

Then we installed the kitchen structure:

As with all projects, there are always challenges.  At the moment the project is on hold after we a realised the granite we chose and the slabs that were delivered today does not look at all the same!! Eish! (aysh) – a very popular saying in South Africa used to express surprise, wonder, frustration or outrage.

As you know, granite is extremely expensive and this colour is totally different to the sample we chose!
If you’re able to distinguish, the bottom square is the sample we chose.  It is called Ghibli.  It is very neutral and has a light brown tone.  The actual slab has a definite red tone that will definitely spoil the original design.
So tomorrow the client and I are heading to the manufacturer to try and sort this mess.  I am very hopeful that we will be able to.  Until then, all is again on hold.
Otherwise I am very excited about this kitchen…will keep you updated!
