What did we decide for our kitchen tile? I asked myself a hundred times before we decided with installing the busy, patterned tile.
You guys! This is the 5th week of the One Room Challenge, hosted by Linda over at Calling it Home and today I should shave shown you images closer to the finished look, but that’s not what happening here. I have done many One Room Challenges like our bathroom remodel or family room makeover, and yes, every time I push our limits and leave everything for last minute. I can work better under pressure lol. But to tell you the truth it does not help my marriage. My hub is a great guy, he helps with everything and deals with this crazy woman, but this kitchen refresh is testing our limits. Not having the heart of the home and basically not being able to use any room downstairs is quite miserable. Eating breakfast from Wawa and lunch at Chick-Fil-a is also not very appealing for my man.
This stage is temporary, I know and will be gone in a few days (fingers crossed), but it is not a good stage to be at. When I started this “kitchen refresh” I wasn’t thinking much of having to remove EVERYTHING from the kitchen. I only realized that this project is bigger than I thought it would be! Oh well, I learned my lesson!
Just for you to see the war zone in the house, here is an image for ya!
Today I am cleaning the doors and tomorrow, and the weekend is for painting the doors. I can’t wait!
So back to the busy tiles!
Yes, we chose busy tiles. My husband and I LOVED it so much and we said -“Heck, life is too short! Let’s make our house a home!”
I asked my followers of what they thought of my choices, and some people loved busy tiles, some hated it. I used busy tiles in my Guest Bathroom, and it’s still one my favorite rooms to walk into. Kidding you not!
I was debating between these two options if you remember:
( Thank you for Wayfair for providing my gorgeous tiles!)
The tile we chose was the Kenzi Paloma porcelain tile.
I could see this kitchen finished with the white upper cabinets, dark lower cabinets and butcher block countertop going with this tile wonderfully. And I still think it will be a fantastic transformation.:-)
The tile guys are finishing up as I am typing right now. Tomorrow we will pull the cabinets back to their place, and hopefully, all will come together by next week! Phew!
Another race with time!
Stay tuned and be sure to check in here next week! I can’t wait to show you the finished space!
