Out with the old and In with the new

You have probably seen our new kitchen on Diane's Blog. The kitchen awaited us when we returned from Sydney last week. Here is what happened behind the scenes by Kitchen Magic, Keith, Jason and Joanne:

The old 20 year old kitchen is removed

Nearly all gone.

The old cork floor looked a bit worse for wear so we had engaged a new flooring contractor to straighten out all the bumps and squeaks of the floor once the old kitchen was removed. Again, Kitchen Magic came to the rescue by recommending the flooring contractor and helping him fix the old floor.

Before we left for Sydney, Joanne from Kitchen Magic drove us to Rocklea to inspect the fabricated kitchen cupboards and drawers and pick the handles.

The day arrives where the new kitchen is delivered. Joanne took this shot from their balcony.

Jason then started installing the new kitchen.

The new kitchen is in and all that remains to be done is fit the splash-back glass under the window and above the cooktop.
