Finished Kitchen! White, Arabesque, Labradorite Multi-Color.

mommyatlawOctober 3, 2012

At long last, we have completed our kitchen! This is a gut and remodel. We removed several walls, expanded into the formal dining room and updated the surrounding rooms. The formal dining room has now joined the formal living room. Many thanks to the patient and resourceful GW'ers. I will post "lived in" pictures when the kitchen has been, er, lived in! Here are the pertinent details:

Contractor: Charanza Contracting, Inc. Thank you, Kenneth, Jace and Mark!

Cabinets: Accent Cabinets in Sherwin Williams Snowbound. Thank you, Tammy!

Paint: Sherwin Williams Snowbound on Cabinets, Trim and Ceiling. Full Moon on Kitchen and Breakfast Walls. Blaize on Family Room Walls.

Granite Counters: Labradorite Multi-Color (Antolini Luigi Signature Stone Collection by Master Tile). Dreamy. I stare at it every day.

Backsplash: MT&S White Beveled Arabesque. Thank you, Beekeeperswife!

Appliances: 36" Gas Range, 30" Electric Oven, 30" Warming Drawer, Dish Drawers

(DCS/Fisher & Paykel); 36" Side by Side Fridge (Electrolux); Wine Fridge and Beverage Center (Summit); Microwave (LG Studio Series). So far so good, though too soon to say.

Sink: 40" Double Bowl Fireclay Sink (Alfi). As lovely and giant as I had hoped.

Faucet: Jaclo Steam Valve Original. Love the look of the faucet. Unfortunately, the plumber had to take it apart 3 times in order to achieve a respectable flow.

Hardware: Cliffside Polished Nickel (on Painted Cabinets); Atlas Legacy Crystal (on Stained Cabinets. From HardwareHut. Excellent vendor.

UCL: Kichler Xenon

Pendants: Benson Polished Nickel from Restoration Hardware.

Breakfast Fixture: Access Lighting Lacey Laser Cut Flush Mount.

Pantry Fixture: Trans Globe Lighting Crystal Sparkle Flush Mount.

Floors: Mannington Chesapeake Hickory in Cherry Spice.

Ceiling Fans: The Dagny by Matthews Fan Co. in Brushed Nickel.

On Order: Regal Bar Stools with Back in Charcoal Zodiac (a la The Fonz); LL Bean Chenille Braided Rugs in Vintage Multi.

It's so beeeeyouteeeefulllll

The whole thing is perfect! And of course my eye is drawn to the tile right away. I love that you did the tile all the way to the ceiling. I always wanted to see that done.

If you haven't done so, you should send that picture to MS&T. I can give you the email address to send it to. They would love to see it. Email me at beekeeperswife at gmail dot com and I can get it to you. (if you want).

Enjoy!!!

Wow, what a beautiful kitchen! There are so many details I love: the dreamy counters, dual islands, pendants, BS, stacked wine and beverage fridges, etc. Great job!

It's gorgeous! How long have you had the floors down? I love your lights, especially the pendents and the ceiling light that looks like big diamonds.

love the split island-once you're all up and using your space that will be terrific.I've seen that in a couple articles,wherein the owner needed a remedy for a long dimension and they were wedded to the island concept.Your space is very long isn't it? ...It'll be a lot of fun for you...and you didn't have to do an addition.

Thanks so much everyone! As soon as I get over my fear of actually using the kitchen, I hope to make the most of it. :)

That is one nice kitchen! Your granite and other finishes are fabulous. I don't think I've ever seen another kitchen with that much countertop space. I think you should invite your fellow GWers for wine tasting. Looks like you have a nice supply chilling there.
Congratulations on your new kitchen
