Kitchen floors

So I’m obsessed with the flooring in this house but definitely the most important right now are the kitchen floors. According to the contractor and the flooring person, I was very unconventional in my choice of flooring for the kitchen with the wood. But since we wanted the open concept look we really wanted the space to feel like one and not 2 separate rooms. Also I was told we chose a very non traditional stain for the floors but I absolutely love them. The contractor actually had chosen a much lighter stain but we have to have him redo the floors to get the color we were looking. 

here are the new floors unfinished in the kitchen

shined up and ready to be stained
  
  

this was rhe first stain that was far too light for our taste so we had him change the color
   
here are the nice deep rich floors that we were looking for!!

Lots of progress

So it’s been awhile since I have given an update and a lot has been going on!!! Drywall is up, counters and cabinets have been measured and ordered, and flooring is curing at the house ready to be installed! Move in day is quickly approaching but this whole project is coming together nicely. Just want to share a few photos with you!!

Open concept come true

So a few days I got a photo that made me fall in love with this house all over again!!!

Back Story::

This house was built in the 1930s. The room that was being used as the kitchen was actually an addition that was added later on. So the wall that was in between the kitchen and the living room was actually the back of the home and had a rear window as well. The dilemma was how to structurally remove this wall without jeopardizing the integrity of the rest of the house. 

Well I finally got the photo that gave me the open concept kitchen, living, dining space that we were hoping for.

 

This is the before with the wall in between the kitchen and living room. closed in and stuffy.
  
During the demo. see the cutout for the old window??
  
this is the view from inside the kitchen towards the living room. the old rear of the home.
  
open concept dreams do come true!! so open and beautiful
