New Kitchen Floor

After years of living with our ugly, outdated, beat up linoleum we finally got it changed to porcelain tile. I struggled with my decision of what color to choose. I am always keeping in mind the next buyer of this house and thinking in terms of what might appeal to a broad range of people. I thought our black countertops called for a darker tile. I finally found a beautiful darker porcelain tile at Lowe's that I felt worked well. The thumbs up from a friend with a good eye for color gave me the courage to take the plunge. I'm so glad I did. I used my 10% off Lowe's coupon from the Post Office change of address envelopes and saved a bundle on the cost of the materials!

After living without a kitchen for several days I am even more appreciative of our modern day appliances! I have a great admiration for those people that do larger remodels and live without these modern conveniences for months. How do they do it?

Here are some before and after pictures.
