Final Kitchen Pictures- Thank you Gardenweb!
It's been just under a year since our kitchen was complete. I, like many of you, spent hundreds of hours on this website prior to the design and subsequent completion of our kitchen. A special thanks to everyone for the following features that would not have been in our kitchen without your input:
Thank you to Bellsmom for her overall design help. When people ask who designed our kitchen and I try and take credit, my wife interjects with "Bellsmom"! You probably don't even remember, but we went with your changes and final layout.
Kitchen features that are thanks to Gardenweb:
1. Pressure switch garbage disposals
2. Two sinks
3. Defined work areas
4. Convection oven
5. Induction stove stop
6. Actual hood over range (not microhood)
7. Under cabinet lighting
8. Under cabinet electrical sockets (Adorne)
9. White shaker cabinets with slab top drawers
- Farm style sink
- Deeper counters
- Never MT soap dispenser
- Tapmasters on both sinks
- London Grey / London Gray Caesarstone Cabinets
- Deeper upper cabinets
- Knife block drawer
- Spice drawer
- Drawers instead of lower cabinets
My only regrets and changes looking back are that I would have had my electrician use the lights that come with the under cabinet sockets (LeGrande Adorne) instead of allowing them to use LED light strips. Our cats had to learn not to pull down the light strips.
The other thing is now I'm wondering if I don't like inset cabinets more. I think I went with non-inset cabinets to avoid losing space. I think I'd switch if I could. Maybe not. It's hard to remember my original reasoning.
Here's some photos. The final comparison photo is our kitchen at 99% completion; the range hood wasn't quite in, and the under cabinet trim wasn't in, so the power strips are visible.
