Kitchen Remodeling – Part 6 – Installation Completed

Yesterday we left off that the kitchen cabinets, wiring, plumbing, back-splash, under-mount & pendant lighting was all installed and were waiting for the counter top.

Well, that was not all that was accomplished over the next two weeks.

During the counter top wait time, Bennett refinished the kitchen ceiling so it was more flat and smooth in appearance, finished off the edging with finishing strips in the same material as the cabinets or with caulking, depending on the particular edge, and a few other finishing touches.

Finally, the grand day arrives and the counter tops are installed by the counter top company.

But wait! The installers want to know where to cut the quartz counter top on the island. I called Jim who was over in less than 10 minutes and we got it sorted out. Bennett would do the cutting. However, Bennett later (before any cutting) had an even better idea.

He suggested to place the electrical outlet under the island counter top inside the door to the right of the oversized pot drawer pulled out in the picture above. What a great idea from Bennett. That way, the electrical outlet is completely out of site when not used (which is perhaps once every other week) and the counter top is not cut.

Next week we will review different features of our kitchen cabinets and work areas.
