before-after pictures of kitchen
Hi, all. I've only posted on here a few times, but I wanted to share pictures of our finished kitchen. I got a lot of ideas from this forum. So thank you!
We worked with a kitchen designer because (a) I'm very indecisive and overwhelmed by too many options and (b) we didn't have strong ideas about what we wanted, other than opening up the DR/kitchen space, having an island, and using the underutilized space at the far end of the kitchen.
The design our kitchen designer pulled together was inspired by the Mediterranean/Latin American colors & style our TS Post dinnerware (see photos). We love our new kitchen, esp. all the pantry space and the flow b/tw the kitchen and DR. It's so much easier to entertain now. Before guests didn't have anything to lean up on in the kitchen while we were cooking.
Here are the details:
Cabinets: cherry; custom by GlickÃ¢ÂÂs (nearby Amish business)
Cabinet pulls: Ã¢ÂÂCanterburyÃ¢ÂÂ in rust, by Top Knobs
Floor tile: didnÃ¢ÂÂt change
Backsplash: Ã¢ÂÂSan MartinoÃ¢ÂÂ series by American Olean (mixed 2x2 mosaic and 2x2 patterned tiles)
Countertops: Zodiaq quartz in Toasted Almond
Sink: Elkay Gourmet Elumina Stainless Steel 33" x 22" Double Basin Top Mount
Faucet: Moen Aberdeen classic stainless pulldown
Refrigerator: Kenmore Elite
Dishwasher: didnÃ¢ÂÂt change (hardly use it!)
Paint: faux paint color wash; base coat for DR = Rembrandt Ruby (Sherwin Williams). I canÃ¢ÂÂt remember the kitchen color off-hand; it was also SW. The accent color was chosen by the painter. He also applied a gloss, which makes the colors come through.
