We finally get to start the finishing details on week five of our kitchen remodel. We installed the range hood fan after receiving a partial approval of the final electrical inspection. The inspector said we called too early - the dishwasher and rangehood needed to be in place. We won't call again until the entire project is done.
Next, we put up the mini-blinds. We looked at new ones, but the cost of replacement convinced me to spend the time cleaning the old ones. We bought a 24-inch-by-8-foot piece of laminate shelving to make additional shelves for the corner units. I was able to purchase extra shelves for the standard cabinets but the Innermost company didn't offer corner shelves. We still need those extra pins to install them though!
What a joyous feeling to begin putting our dishes back into the kitchen. The storage bins in the porch held the glasses and plates. Our thoughts are very fluid at this time and my original placement ideas are changing as I ponder the spaces. I love-love-love the extra shelves so that things don't have to be stack on top of other bowls. And see that empty space on top? That is what I gained by getting rid of the soffit! Yea!
Here is my favorite - the corner base cabinet with the easy access door. Wow! This replaces a blind corner cabinet where I had to get down on my hands and knees to access these pots. I still have the entire lower shelf for roasters and such. I love it and can see how the lazy Susan would have been a waste of space.
