Lifestyle The Big Kitchen Reveal!! May 30, 2017

A huge thank you to Shark® for providing the Shark® Rocket Complete with DuoClean™ Technology to help facilitate the clean up for my final kitchen reveal! All opinions are my own. I can’t believe it!  We have finally made it to the end of our kitchen remodel and we are so happy with the results. When we began this journey, I wanted to make some changes without going overboard financially and without changing the complete overall structure. I am so proud of the fact that we were able to make the changes and stay within our small budget.

We began our journey with new appliances from Nebraska Furniture Mart. As I have said before, the store is super massive, but the salesman that assisted us figured out our needs and was so helpful. We chose stainless steel Whirlpool appliances and a vent-hood. It took about two months for delivery, which was great because it gave us time to prep the kitchen. Truth? I have finally learned to clean the appliances the right way. Who knew there was a special way to clean a flat top stove.

Next up was the new counter tops. We shopped at our local Seconds & Surplus and found perfectly priced granite counter tops, and we are still in awe of the price because we went in looking to purchase laminate. From there, we found a contractor to do the installation and guess what? He threw in the 10 inch deep sink for free (Yay!). After that was done, we added the new faucet, peel and stick back-splash, Philips Hue lighting, cabinet door knobs and pulls, electrical and switch plates and new microwave and toaster to bring the look together.

As you can see, our old kitchen wasn’t bad, but full disclosure…. the appliances needed to be replaced after 17 years. The stove didn’t heat properly, the ice maker stopped making ice and the dishwasher didn’t clean the dishes anymore, so it was time!I am amazed that just a few changes have made a world of difference.

No reveal can be complete without a bit of clean up. We bought all of the stainless steel products needed to get the appliances clean along with the cleaner to clean the counter tops. The only thing left was the floor. This is where our new Shark® Rocket Complete with DuoClean™ Technology comes in. The Shark® brand was gracious enough to provide us with what we needed to facilitate the clean-up of our floors after the renovation was done. 

Take a look at some of the features this upright has:

  • Shark’s most technologically advanced ultra-light upright, provides remarkable floor to ceiling cleaning and obliterates embedded dirt and stuck-on dust, while providing improved flexibility.
  • With Triple Particle Cleaning designed for an incredible clean, the new dual brushroll system automatically transitions from floors to carpets.
  • With two brush rolls working together, the Shark Rocket Complete with DuoClean Technology picks up large particles, small particles, and stuck-on particles — on all types of floors and carpets.

This beauty is the perfect lightweight vacuum cleaner for us because it not only cleaned our carpet, but also did wonders on our laminate wood floors. In our kitchen, that’s a necessity because when we cook, things “just happen” to end up on the floor (I have no idea how it gets there). I am amazed at the sound because it is not as loud and overpowering as some of our past cleaners and it picks up even the biggest or smallest particles on our floor. The Shark Rocket Complete provides a smooth glide and is easy to maneuver. Not only is it functional, but it’s good looking too.

For the moment you have been waiting for. Are you ready?? Time to see the final results.

Not bad huh? We are so happy with it and I think it fits our needs.

Now that I am in that zone, I think that we will now direct our focus to our laundry room / pantry. Maybe we will add one of those glass doors, some different shelving and a new washer and dryer. Who knows, but I’ll keep you posted.

Until Next Time!
