Day 26: My dream kitchen [our kitchen is finally up!]

It's awesome. It's merrily awesome. 95% of our carpentry is up and I'm thrilled. It's like a dream come true.. 

I was half dreading the installation as I really didn't want any possibly wet wood damaged from last Friday to be placed onto our cupboards. Thankfully, Absolook kept to their word and changed the cabinets. I rushed down after school for them to start work at about 1.40pm.. 

The cabinets being put into place after being screened by me.. 

Our water pipes in the kitchen.. If you can't conceal it, make it pop! (: 

The other side of the kitchen was actually completed earlier this week. 

We had the skirting in our unit painted black! (: 

The shelving for the bookshelves were up too... and so were the glass doors! 

The feature wall was completed together with the console.. 

And the moment arrived... kept my fingers crossed! 

Thankfully, it was good! 

I ended up playing with the cupboards in the study.. I love our Blum system! (: Only part of the house that's lacking the blum is the wardrobe which I forgot to request for! 

Love it so much! 

The uncles were really busy at work.. they had 3 hours to complete the job! 

The vanity counter for our MBR toilet is up with the sink too.. waiting for the quartz top now... 

Grey and black living hall walls! (: 

Our feature wall has shelving (: 

I was thrilled the moment the doors went up!

The view from our service yard... 


The awesome pull out table.. it even has the 45 degree finger slot for me to have a better grip of the table! LIONEL AND RICHIE YOU ROCK! (: 

The stove and basin were up too.. The L shaped kitchen gives me a little more counter space! 

Same for the dish drainer and cooker hob. 

My 2nd pull out table! (: Perfectly concealed as a drawer! 

Love the sink! 

Super slim hood! 

The oven went in too! (: The space above the oven is for the microwave oven.. 

Love how the white brightens up the whole kitchen.. and the orange frame is just perfect for it! 

According to Lionel, this is the first ever bright kitchen he has ever done.. guess we kinda broke his record! I truly truly love my kitchen.. Thank you Absolook, Lionel and Richie for making my dream come true! Can't wait for the rest of the unit to be completed for our move next Saturday! (:
