finished kitchen

srg215August 18, 2010

sorry i took the pics a bit far away. we moved in 2 weeks ago and we still have a lot to furnish, but i figured i'd start off showing the kitchen.

this is a view into the family room from the kitchen. the built ins are all ready with the mount installed for the 65" tv.

Wow. The crown molding and the backsplash give you such drama! That is one impressive slab on your island, and I love your lighting, too.

Small detail -- I'm curious about your drawer pulls, because they look unusual. What are they and where did you find them?

Your new kitchen is gorgeous. I like how you have black and white cabinets. I also love the table and the light above it. Where did you find the light fixture above the dining table? I would love that table base with a black glass top.Where did you find that as well???

Where are your barstools from? Are they brown like the table chairs? Exactly what I'm looking for. Your kitchen is gorgeous!

Oh, I love those chairs, the granite and the chandy over the table.

I like the way the windows wrap the table space and the location of the ?deck? door.

What are those tiles?

Stunning! This is going to be an inspiration kitchen for quite a few! I love the mix of modern and traditional. The light fixtures are phenomenal, the calm color palette is perfect. And the backsplash is hot! I remember the old thread about your crown molding, it turned out beautiful. Enjoy your new kitchen!

Absolutely stunning! I remember when you were trying to choose a backsplash and beekeeper suggesting the mandala. I've been anxiously waiting to see the finished product and it was definitely worth the wait!! I love it! Definitely going into my favorites!!

Love the cabinet color and style (what brand is the cabinet and is that considered a shaker style?), love the crown molding and how you made the cabinets look like they go to the ceiling, love the range hood, love the appliances, love the floors but most of all I adore your granite! Thanks for sharing. Just beautiful!

I remember when you were trying to figure out the crown molding detail. You hit on a perfect note with your choice. Please tell me more. How tall is the board between cabinet molding and crown molding? TIA!

The size of the tiles in your backsplash work perfectly with your hood. They look substantial and rich.
I also love your lighting fixtures and all the other choices.
It does have an amazing mix of modern and traditional. Clean lines and a strong presence.
It looks like a pleasure to work in ;)

I love it. You did a wonderful job with everything.

Do you mind if I ask what faucet is at the island and what are the inner dimensions of that sink? I have a similar placement, I believe and I'm so nervous to take the plunge without seeing it done IRL!!

Thanks!

I showed my friend this link and now he wants cabinets the color of yours and wants to use crown molding like you did on top. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful kitchen.

Beautiful job. All of the details are so perfect. Everything just works so well together.

I have a couple of quick questions. 1) Where is your pantry? (sorry if I missed this in the info.) 2) What are the dimensions of your kitchen and your island?

If you can get to replying .... what type of wood floors to you have? Nail and stain or engineered? Type of wood? They are beautiful!

odiegirl13: the pantry is next to the butler's pantry which is through that open header next to the range wall. it's a huge walk in pantry. not sure of the dimensions of the kitchen. it's big. the island is 9ft x 4.5ft.

shermp: we have quartersawn white oak flooring w/a dark walnut stain and a satin finish. i actually like the regular oak flooring w/the dark walnut stain that we have upstairs better but we had to do quartersawn on this floor because we have radiant heating underneath. but the stain came out a bit darker on the upstairs floors w/more grain detail and it's really pretty up there.

albanynyjen, i don't know the brand since i used the place my builder gets cabinets made. the color is white dove though. we live in northern new jersey (i went to suny albany). the hardware was picked out at the cabinet maker too so i don't know the brand of that. sorry i couldn't be more helpful.

Like wear_your_baby, I'm curious about your faucet. Which one is i?

No wonder I like BA. It's GORGEOUS!!! And all of the details compliment each other perfectly. The way the molding is finished above the cabinets is something I want to file in the memory bank. I think we voted on that at some point, didn't we? (It's been a while....and a long summer with the kids.....)
