Progress has slowed down substantially since the holidays. Substantially. But apparently today was a good day because we came home to find our kitchen and mudroom countertops installed. (Enter sigh of relief here)
They look fabulous. Full stop. Caesarstone was definitely the way to go. It has all the characteristics of concrete without the upkeep.
It has a nice consistent color to it, looks very impressive and seems easy to clean (based on the first wipe which no doubt tells a lot...). In fact, it looks almost identical to the real concrete countertops that we put in our bathrooms. I'm not sure if I'm ready to admit it, but I'm pretty close to committing that we would have been better off with Caesarstone everywhere. Gasp. They are beautiful and easy. What a combo.
The wall tiling is scheduled to be completed tomorrow. It doesn't seem feasible to do it all in one day, but I've certainly been proven wrong before. These two items get us much closer to the "complete" feeling. Then again, I'm sure there is something else waiting around the corner to get done that we haven't noticed yet. Let's just hope it's not a biggie...
