Butcher Block Island made by my son, Andrew

This kitchen remodel sort of exploded from the kitchen, to the dining room, to the family room, laundry. Mostly the kitchen was done, we just tied all the ceramic floor tile all through the kitchen, dining room, family room and laundry.

My Cabinet are Laureldale Amaretto Creme Glaze, by in Culver City, CA Charlie Torres is wonderful to work with. This is an online store where you have to know what you want and they place the order for you.

My Granite Counters are Typhoon Bordeaux and were purchased from a Prefab Granite Company

My Stainless Appliances are from the GE Cafe Series, love them and ordered them online also.

Fabulous job! All of the elements work so well together. I love the glass cabinets, and the backsplash with the tile accents is just perfect. Although it is brand new, your kitchen is warm, inviting, and looks lived in and loved in. This is seriously one of the nicest renos I've seen.

chinkle- Your kitchen is beautiful. I am also getting typhoon bordeaux granite. I looked at the GE Cafe gas range and love all the features it has. I was just concerned about the stainless steel top. Does it scratch easily and is it easy to clean? Are you happy with your choice?

I believe this is what they call going from drab to fab! Very well done!

Your Kitchen is beautiful. If I could ask you a question please.
It's been a year, how do you like your GE Cafe' appliances?
We are about to move into a new home and are in the mist of being confused on what to buy.
Looks vs. reliability/performance etc..Thank You

I only have the GE Cafe gas range but I love it! I have had it for 2 years now and it still looks new and works wonderfully.

I love Chinkle's kitchen!
