Kitchen help needed!
Ok you wonderful people! I have lurked on here for quite a time, and have been amazed at how everyone helpful is and all the fantastic information given. So here goes my virgin post ;)
Kitchen remodel. Dear god help. I have so many ideas and so little sanity to process any of them! I am in desperate need of another set of eyes and some solid advice on this thing.
My decorating style seems to have taken a traditional approach throughout this house. I love white cabinets and white subway tile. I have the stainless steel appliances. The floors will be a dark wood. (yes I know about the cleaning:) ) The ridiculous bar area has been torn out. Where the wall oven/MW is will become a range and OTR MW to free up some counter space. An island will be added to the now empty space between the wall of windows and kitchen. This will remain even with the cabinets on the wall with the sink to allow the walkway to flow freely.
So. I suppose my question is what the heehaw should I do with this! I am uncertain what route I should take with the cabinets. I could have new doors made but cannot decide what kind I should do. My current (everchanging) decision is to keep the doors, paint them white, have doors made to match on the sections that will need slight modifications and spiff them up a bit with some crown and such. The doors are so well made that I hate to throw them out, and I really don't mind the style.
I have no idea what to do about the sink. ATM I am considering tiling up to level with the top cabinets. I have also considered some type of shelving, but I really love the openness without anything there. In my head I see a picture or something of the sort hanging there, changing frequently with my mood lol!
Crossing my fingers these pics are sized and all that jazz! Don't have the greatest images to depict this, I'm afraid.
Pic of doors. also proudly shows prior color ha ha!!
Windows on rightt, island will go on the left, even with the cabs you see the end of. Laundry room, master bed, and garage is here. (disclaimer - I work a lot, ignore those clothes!!)
Ok, this is the sink side of the kitchen. I felt immensely better when I tore that valance out!
Other side of kitchen. Hideoderous bar included free. The island would be directly in front of/under the photographer in this shot. Range and MW will be in oven/MW current slot.
This view shows how the kitchen opens to to living room. Yes, that's a pink living room :)
The cabinet modifications and island building will begin Monday morning. Any and all suggestions/comments is so greatly appreciated
