I seriously need some help!!

warden291March 16, 2014

I have been lurking around this forum for several months and am so overwhelmed with our kitchen redo I've decided to join the fray and post a question before I start pulling my hair out!!
My wife and I are planning on starting our kitchen remodel in a year or so and the decisions to be made are well...you know.
Here's my short list so far...tell me if you would change anything....
Sub zero 42" fridge
Kitchen aid or Wolf 6 burner stove top
Kitchen aid warming drawer
Electrolux electric double wall oven
Still deciding on the steam oven option...Viking or Wolf
relocating our 1 year old Kitchen aid dishwasher...it's just to new to discard in my opinion.

I initially was interested in a few of the Viking products but from reading this forum I'm holding off even though they are under new ownership and have revamped many of their appliances.

I would really appreciate any and all thoughts on our appliance choices so far.

As a side note my wife has picked a knotty alder wood cabinet setup with granite countertop and island. I finally talked her out of the marble.

This sounds like an extensive job. I suggest you seek professional design help immediately.

I am not really sure just what it is you want help with. Do you need some reassurance about your appliance choices? We don't know what your space will be like, your layout, your budget, anything. So, we don't know how those items would work for you, other than to maybe say, "oh yes I have that fridge and this is what I like or don't like about it." Is that what you are looking for?

When your floorplan is drawn up, post it here. There are many good GWers here to help you "tweak" it. Sometimes, someone else sees something we miss.

Yes raee....that's exactly what I need...feedback on my appliance choices. Space issues and layout are not a problem...we've got that figured out already. Budget is not an issue. I just need to have an informed opinion on these appliance choices before I start writing the checks. I really hate those woulda ..shoulda ..coulda's.

and to the other comment...I don't need any professional design help. We have already consulted with the cabinet guy who will also be the general contractor on the whole project.

Sorry for the confusion...I should have been more clear about what I needed advice on with the initial posting....my bad.

I have the Elux Icon double ovens. The ovens have a warming feature. That may help eliminate the warming drawer if you wish to have more storage space.

If the six burner top is a range top a lot of gw members seem to lean a bit towards Capital Culinarian or Bluestar.

I would post in Appliances. They know this stuff inside and out. Here it's mainly about marble. ; )
