Finished Kitchen-better late than never

suzanne_slSeptember 19, 2012

onedogedie pointed out that I "forgot those magic words "Finished Kitchen" in your post title" yesterday. You're right! Here's a re-post for those who missed it.

Although I've posted all sorts of photos of things in my kitchen, I never got around to posting a "finished kitchen." Hence, better late than never. In my defense I will say that I kept waiting for the ceiling trim and the light rail trim to be added, but it turns out that my DH is opposed to both. We'll see.

On the Finished Kitchens blog, you get to choose the size of your kitchen. Mine came in 5 sf over the "tiny" category, moving it up to "small." It is small, but of all the kitchens I've used over the years, I'd rank it at the top end of usable and convenient. I think it's having an opening at both ends of the L that does the trick. It also helps that the dining room is right the other side of the peninsula which keeps the space from being claustrophobic. Enjoy!

Beautiful cabinets, pendant lights, love the blue painted wall! What is the paint and color blue is the wall? Counters compliment the cabinets, what are the counters? Bet you really like your faucet! Nice tall pantry cabinet next to the table! Congratulations, now you can really enjoy your new kitchen! Wish we were finished, our kitchen is in the gutted stage - still trying to select a turquoise blue for the cabinets so they can be built!!

Very functional, and beautiful, too! I agree that having the dual openings is a great functional element. Your cabinets are beautiful as is, I don't blame your DH for not wanting to add anything more to them.

Love the stools, too. Very pretty!

Totally lovely! The cabs are so gorgeous, love the rich depth of color and the granite sets them off perfectly. What are your counter stools? They look fantastic too.

Congrats on your beautiful new space!

I almost missed this!
Very, very nice. I also love how delicate your stools are against the more tailored cabinets.

You've done a beautiful job!
