Countertops, Cabinet and Brickwork Too

We updated our kitchen countertops.  Creamy laminate was updated with black and grey solid surface.  It looks really nice with our black appliances.  We also replaced the cream sink with a dark grey sink.  The real bonus of the new countertop was more countertop space.  We had a gap from when we moved the washer and dryer to the basement so we could install a dishwasher.  We had a cabinet built to fill in the gap which allowed us to extend the countertop the full length of the wall.  Some day we will find the time to install a backsplash.

We also had some brickwork done so the sunroom renovation can continue.  We were fortunate enough to have some extra brick that matches our house.  The brick is a really unique brown color with orange mortar.  A local mason removed the screen door and laid brick in the same pattern found under our other sunroom windows.  Next we will get a window ordered to fill in the gap.
