Finished Kitchen - Creamy with Walnut
We've been busy unpacking and moving. I keep planning to post my finished kitchen, but have been so slow actually getting it done. Always messy, and never quite "done." But, not sure it ever will be!
Thanks to all for so much help and inspiration. My layout definitely was made more functional after asking for help from you all, and the details and pictures are so helpful as well. I have enjoyed watching so many kitchens come together on this forum and I hope my pictures and details will help some people with their decisions. Thank you all!
The house is new construction, so I was able to get out my graph paper and outline my ideas. It has been a really fun process, though it is nice to finally get to live here!
Cabinets: Local guys (Hogan and Co) --- painted Benjamin Moore Manchester Tan. ( It looks doesn't look tan at all though because the floors are dark)
Paint: Walls BM Greenbrier Beige, Trim Manchester Tan
Backsplash: Honed Crema Marfil 3x6
Appliances: Subzero all-fridge, Subzero all-freezer, Wolf rangetop, Sharp microwave drawer, Kitchenaid fridge drawers, U-line fridge freezer drawers (in butler's pantry), Kitchenaid dbl ovens and kitchenaid dishwasher drawers.
Floors: Random width walnut (3, 4, and 5 ") finished with oil based poly in satin.
Counters: Island: wide plank walnut finished with Waterlox, perimeter granite: White Diamond granite
Sinks: Prep sink- Ticor, Island sink- Shaw's, Butler's Pantry - hammered copper from Copper Sinks online
Faucets: Kohler Fairfax in prep, Perrin and Rowe at island (the water sprayer annoyingly drips) and Kohler Vinnata in Butler's pantry
The main part of the kitchen is really just the range wall (with fridge and freezer flanking), opposite the island, which has the sink, a dishwasher, trash /recycling and microwave. The other cabinets /drawers are extra storage. Things I love in here: The big drawers below the rangetop for pots and pans (definitely big here on GW), the spice pull-outs, and the floors.
Here are some shots...
If you look the other way, the range wall is opposite the fireplace in our keeping room. We love the openness of the layout. There are hidden doors above the window seats (see the paint on either side of the fireplace, those are big toy closets, accessed from above the windowseats, we love this)
Breakfast area. The drawers on the right are fridge drawers. This is very handy. My kids have zero reason to get into the range area fridges. We keep milk and all drinks in here. This I love!
Prep pantry: Small little area, so hard to get a good shot. It is hidden behind these barn doors....
Sink side, with pass-through to breakfast area:
Pantry (before we organized):
The other side of the pantry, we put a counter. This works great for setting down groceries, preparing stuff, etc. I still want to find baskets that fit in the cubbies below.
And that's it.... now that I just previewed, I realized all of these pics came out giant.... how annoying! I am not sure how to re-size them without uploading again. Sorry about that!
