Time for the Tile

We finally made a decision and picked out the tile for the kitchen and dining room. It took a while, and I ended up picking something totally different than what I originally thought I liked, but we did it. Not only did we pick it out, we ordered it, and we're supposed to get it installed this next week.

I know it's going to look really nice when we get it done, and I'm glad we decided to do this instead of finishing the bathroom in the basement. We decided that having a ceramic tile shower with glass tile wall in the basement was just too much. Who really wants the bathroom in the basement that's only going to get used once in a while to look better than the other bathrooms in the house? So we decided to put the money into a part of the house that we will use and enjoy a lot more. It will be really nice to have a hard surface to walk into off the deck and not to have carpet under that dining room table any more. Looking back I wonder why we put carpet there in the first place, but we did, and we've lived with it for almost 12 years. It's time for a change.
