Kitchen Remodel: Week 5

End of week 5:

New this week:

Tiling has begun, and the onyx decorative tile trim is beautiful.  Part of the Grohe kitchen faucet has been installed — unfortunately it needs a bigger sleeve to accommodate the spray head hose.  The new GE Profile microwave looks very sleek, even though we didn’t feel like paying for the trim kit to make it look like a built-in appliance.  I hope it works as well as it looks; the reviews have been inconsistent at best . . . .  yes, I admit, I bought that microwave because it was the only one out there that fits the depth and width of the cabinet.  And then there is my third favorite part of the remodel: the bank of floor-to-ceiling cabinets!
