This is our full kitchen remodel. We spent a lot of time measuring, designing, and changing things to get to the layout we wanted. We both worked full time jobs and did this after work and in the weekends over three weeks (mostly). The kitchen is our own design and we ordered through www.UDUIT.co.nz. It arrived as a flat pack kitchen. Very pleased with the quality of it all.
John shows us how to install the Lazy Granite (lazygranite.com) kitchen countertop system. This is all natural granite, mini slab solution. It's a lot nicer than 12x12 tile but a heck of a lot less expensive than granite slab. Remodel your kitchen counters on a reasonable budget. Install granite for the same cost as formica. http://www.lazygranite.com

Learn how I transformed an outdated and ugly kitchen into a trendy modern paradise for under $4500!
Day 1: Demo Day!
We ripped out the countertops, all the tile backsplash and the sink.
Day 2: We laid out the plywood which will support the new Chop Bloc countertops.
Day 3: If you've ever thought about tackling a tile project yourself, you should! It's not terribly difficult and it's very rewarding. So save yourself some money and Do-It-Yourself! Home Depot even has free classes and there a million and one tutorials online that can help guide you. You will need a tile saw or a grinder like the one I used in this video. I went with white subway tiles for a clean modern look. They were also inexpensive.
Day 4: Painting the cabinets!
I decided after a lot of thinking that I didn't want Ikea cabinets. My cabinets were in good shape and I like the idea of knowing my kitchen is totally unique and not like every other remodeled kitchen out there. So I opted to sand, prime and repaint my cabinets. Prepping for painting takes a lot longer than actually painting. Apply two light coats and make sure to wear a mask or respirator!
Day 5: Countertops!
My ABSOLUTE favorite day! We finished installing the Chop Bloc mahogany countertops and they're so smooth and perfect. I couldn't believe how rich the colors were after I applied the mineral oil. It was amazing!
