This kitchen remodel was a total DIY job, except for the granite countertops, that took almost 7 months to complete. There were a lot hassles and problems, but we made it to the finish line. I want to publicly praise my DH for all his hard work and the long hours he put into making it a reality.
So far I love the island the best. I never had one before. We got reduced size cabinets (18"W) so I could have an island. The island measurements are 21"W x 75.5"L. I know that sounds small on paper, but it is a great workspace. I use it constantly. I store all my appliances underneath and it will be my prep area. I do love the red garnet in the VB granite too. When the sun from the skylights fall on the island it sparkles. I love it!

I just purchased the cortina tile for my kitchen and googled it to see if anyone had photos.

Can you tell me what color grout you used for this?

By the way, the kitchen looks great.
