Kitchen Tiles’ Arrival

The tiles for our checkerboard kitchen floor have arrived!

You can read about my kooky selection process here:

So, anyway, here’s what we ordered:

5 boxes each of Desert Gray Speckled + Black Speckled

12″ square porcelain tiles,

from Daltile’s Color Scheme collection @ only $2.99 sq. ft.!

DSC06204,

Let me tell ya, 10 boxes of tile are crazy heavy,

(I couldn’t even lift one),

so G.O. used a cart to transport them from his truck to our back door,

5 boxes at a time:

Once the boxes reached their destination IN-side the house,

we immediately laid out a few tiles for a look-see:

Hey, look!  It’s our new Maytag dishwasher!

Is it wrong that both G.O. are madly in love with that handle?

It’s so chunky!  It’s also stainless steel,

which pops so nicely against the white appliance.

But back to our floor:

Getting the layout just right is going to involve a whole lot o’ math.

Here’s G.O., getting a head start on said-same:

Definitely stay tuned!

    Your kitchen is looking wonderful! I wonder if GO is thinking the island shouldl have been placed a few more inches one way or another? I remember when I tiled.our bathroom I was wishing the vanity had been. Definitely some math problems to figure out. Do you have any idea when you will be moving in?

      Hi Nancy
      Well, we didn’t change the island’s position from my initial plan, but we did make it smaller. It was just too close to the swinging back door, so we took out one 18″ section of drawers. We might be moving in next month. Fingers crossed!
