Area Rug from

Has anyone purchased area rugs from this online company.
I found one I like, and their prices are better than others. Were you happy with the company? TIA

98% finished kitchen

Hi there - I have only posted a few times, but have lurked a ton, and learned a lot here (if only I'd found it before I started instead of halfway through!). My kitchen's not nearly as grand as some that are here, but thought you guys might enjoy seeing it anyway. Note there are occasional odd spots from a camera lens issue, sorry about that.

And close up of my lovely floors:


The cabinets are Shiloh, maple shaker style in hazelnut with a mocha glaze. Granite is Typhoon Bordeaux. My floor (which is throughout the home, my favorite part of this full remodel) is BR 111 engineered Amendoim in 5" planks. Backsplash is simple travertine and sink is an antracite Silgranit, both thanks to things I viewed in this forum; faucet is a Delta Bellissimo.

Oh, and hey, I also redid a small guest bath - off topic but just for fun; I love love love the black oak cabs and the granite vanity and really wanted them for the kitchen but it wouldn't have worked with my floors . . .

I'm still finishing up remodeling in other areas of the house but the kitchen has been near done for a month or so (just need a cab trim piece and a new eat-in table) and I finally got around to taking pics. Only wish I'd taken before pictures because the change is crazy . . . oh well. Hope this isn't picture overload and thanks for all the great info and ideas I have gotten here.

banquette? (Follow-Up #9)

Do you own or rent? The reason I ask is that your space looks ideally situated for banquette. Is that an option? Photobucket
