There is so much in the super susan; blender, toaster, several food processors, huge stock pot, cookie cutters, rolling pins, etc.
 photo IMG_9030_zps876b3fb6.jpg

A trim piece still needs to be installed under the counter from the drawers to the wall in the desk area(not sure if it's called a valance or an apron?) photo IMG_9041_zps4b8e6746.jpg

We had a hole drilled in the counter where the TV sits and used this grommet. The outlet and cable jack are down below in the cabinet. We did the same thing in the desk area for the computer and phone. photo IMG_9016_zps4b29abe5.jpg

These gray corbels were supposed to go on my island. They initially sent me the wrong ones. Now that I have the correct ones, I'm not sure if I want to use them anymore. I kind of like the island as is. I would love to find another use for them. photo IMG_9013_zpsc29b23cf.jpg

I had many inspiration photos from both Houzz and Garden Web. I learned SO much from this forum from electrical, to counters, to lighting, to plugmolds. Every photo and comment has been so very helpful. Thank you to everyone who has shared their knowledge. Some mistakes were made and we spent way more than we thought we would, but overall I am very pleased.

RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Stunning attention to detail...I love the cabinet hardware, the crackle backsplash, choice of colors and that darling seating area. Really a marvelous job, and you should be proud of your choices and enjoying it in a good health each day.

RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

How nice to log onto GW tonight & see your reveal. Very surprised to see the mosaic above your stove...no hints that that you were planning that. It is absolutely perfect, I just love it. The backsplash too.
I love the color of the island. Love the light fixtues. The sink color looks great with your quarzite. Your pulls & knobs are so pretty.
When you look at the "whole view" picture of your kitchen, you really did a great job. Beautiful kitchen! I know you are thrilled, congrats.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Thank you for sharing! Gorgeous! I love how you worked with a tight color palette and still made an interesting room.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Soooooo pretty! Stunning quartzite, lovely choice of knobs and pulls, love the color of the island, beautiful tile....I could go on and on. Enjoy!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Very nicely done! Love your island--the color of the cabs, the quartzite, and the edge--all, oh so special!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Congratulations! Your counters are so lovely, with a stunning edge.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

lcskaisgir , I am in love!! Polar White is the perfect White to go with your other colors used. I LOVE the counters so much! What edge is the island counter? I LOVE the color of the island with your Polar White beaded inset gorgeous cabinets on the perimeter. I love the floors and the stain you used for your hardwood floors. I love the fancy glass door. I love all the wonderful lighting and your beautiful windows. I love the pretty hardware chosen. I love the undercabinet lighting. I love the appliances chosen, the backsplash, the computer table/work area, the beautiful seating area, the dining table area, the sink color, and just the whole beautiful kitchen how everything ties so wonderfully together giving this beautiful elegant peaceful look! Besides the beauty of your kitchen, it is also a wonderful organized space!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Absolutely gorgeous kitchen! Please, please tell me about your quartzite. Is this a true quartzite or a marble? I spent two days last week looking at quartzite and didn't see anything remotely resembling this (which is exactly what I'm looking for). Everything I saw in a soft pattern was too gray looking and didn't have enough white in it. I just love yours.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Heck it looked fantastic before. I like the new paint much better though, the rest is just fluff.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Swooning here, that is just stunning. Your attention to details shows through. I particularly love and admire how beautifully you chose that cabinet knob that coordinates with the diamond mullions in your glass door! It's perfect, as is the whole kitchen. Great job!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Great job! I had to wait to see on a computer vs my iphone. Your old kitchen was sweet but you took the new kitchen to a new level!
I like that you were able to use the space below your cooktop for lids. I wasn't able to do that with my Wolf.

I love you tile with your kitchen - it is perfect.
Love you diamond glass mullions
Love your plugmold (OK, a bit biased :-)
OK - I love your kitchen and can't wait to see KAW pictures.

I am not normally a corbel person - but since you used them on your hood - it might tie in your island by using them. Where are you planning to put them. I was having trouble seeing a location with the color.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

I couldn't see anything wrong with your 1st kitchen until I looked at your new kitchen. Talk about a refresh! It is amazing how the small details make such a difference. You went from 1990s - 2000s to 2014, still in nice clean, cool. white. And you did it so fast!

I also love your island edge. Very nice detail.
and your zebra stool. What a fun piece! :)

Enjoy!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Agree with CEFreeman! I looked at the before and thought "pretty good," then I looked at the after and thought "wow!."


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Very nice kitchen. Like with what you did with the above cabinet lighting. Very sharp looking. Curious, what is your ceiling height? I'm guessing 9' but not sure? The perimeter counters, 2 or 3 cm?


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Exquisite in every way!!! Wow! Love everything about it.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Thank you everyone! Initially we were just going to get new island cabinets, new counters, and new appliances. AND paint, oh how I was sick of the green! Anyway, we figured that if we were doing all of that, it wouldn't be much longer before the other cabinets would need to be replaced (they were 14 years old) so might as well just bite the bullet.

A2gemini, you were instrumental in helping me figure out the plug mold installation! Regarding the corbels, I really did NOT want THAT hood with THOSE corbels. However, the hood I did want was $$$$$ so I needed to find something by the cabinet manufacturer. They did not offer anything I really liked and could not make the modifications necessary to do what I wanted. After many back and forths with Shiloh I chose that hood out of sheer exhaustion! It was definitely one of the compromises along the way. That being said, I don't really think about it now and am ok with it. Now I am stuck with these gray corbels that I spent $ on and have no use for, ugh!

Smiling, that is why I chose that cabinet hardware!! Thanks for noticing! It really didn't look like anything I would like but when I got it in the mail and put it in the kitchen, I knew it was the right choice and I like it very much.

Cani123, the counters were the death of me! I REALLY wanted Superwhite, I mean REALLY wanted! I found some beautiful slabs that were very white w/subtle hints of gray. However, as if learned from GW, it behaves more like a marble and I have two messy boys and a messy husband, no can do anything that stains or etches. These have been great so far. They were definitely hard to find. I would suggest asking your local stone yards if they can transfer some in for you. Some stone yards have other locations throughout the country.

Crl, yes, definitely a tight color palette, which I worry borders on boring. I still have a little decorating to do!

Romy!!! Your kitchen was one of my inspirations! And you were so helpful and patient in giving opinions and advice. Thank you! Believe it or not, the mosaic above the cooktop was something my contractor had been pushing for the whole way through. I was very much opposed to the idea. At the end I gave in, another decision of mental exhaustion, lol! I am so glad I did though!

Lynn2006, I know you will find the perfect white for your cabinets! It can be frustrating, believe me, I know! Maybe you should just get the custom color you like so you can put the decision to rest and move on. Your peace of mind might be worth that $500. Oh, and the edge on the island is basically a ogee stacked on a straight edge, but he slightly angled the very top of the straight edge.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Aries61, yes 9' ceiling and 3 cm counters.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

What a beautiful kitchen! I love the island color & your hardware, but it's all stunning. Great job. Congrats!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Beautiful! What are the dimensions of your kitchen and the island? I have a similar layout and I am wondering if I have room for an island. Thanks for sharing!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

lcskaisgi, Thank you for your post and replies! Your post just came in time to make me realize that I do not like doing business with a kitchen guy who keeps pressuring me and has not made the changes I wanted on paper and keeps thinking his design was so special but was one of the worse without my changes. He only has it going for him that he came here to measure and then came back with an installer as the others want me to find someone to install the kitchen.

I really miss when I was dealing with this store in 2011 and he had me pick out everything first to get a total price so would see how the counters, floors and cabinets worked together. He make the mistake on pushing me to go with a door I did not love to get a price and that was wrong.

I may pass on locking in the price before the price increase with more knowledge now and revisit it after my tax season. I have so much going on right now with my little dog in congestive heart failure (other two little dogs passed), needing a new dentist, and my helper breaking his leg so I am working alone.

I do love my tiles but I should have not picked them out until I had the cabinets picked out. They could work with the Polar White IF I find a counter to tie the tiles in with the cabinets. If the Polar White Cabinet color does not work with the tiles I have now, I need to be sure I will get 3,000K LED bulbs to make the soft white look more white and find a counter that ties in both the beautiful 18" rectified Porcelain tiles with my cabinets. I do want to go with the beaded inset door and I am still liking the flat panel door with the 5 piece drawers.

I want a kitchen that sings to me like your beautiful kitchen with everything working together wonderfully. I love the Polar White Inset doors in your kitchen as they work perfectly with all the other colors and materials you chose! Lisa, you have exquisite taste! I also adore your counters and maybe that is what I need to find first to see how a counter can tie everything together alone with hardware like you did.

Thank you for sharing Lisa and thank you for sharing on time right when I needed to see your gorgeous functional kitchen!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

A big thumbs up. To me the color combos are right on. Congrats. sigh.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

BEG17, the main part of my kitchen is about 13' x 15', which does not include the desk area, kitchen table area, and sitting area in front of the fireplace. The 13' measurement is from cooktop wall to end of the island.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Very elegant.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Thank you so much! Is the island about 3' x 8'?
Nice touch on coordinating the lattice designs.

RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

I agree that your pre-reno kitchen was pretty nice, but your new kitchen is stunning. Look at all that light you have now!! It's a really beautiful space. Congratulations!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Your kitchen is just perfect! Love all the details, the lights, counters, the counters, the cabinets, the handles...... all comes together so perfectly. Enjoy!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Lisa, I had to look again and I showed a friend as I feel your kitchen is so perfect in getting a space that is elegant, gorgeous, functional, and with everything just going together so well.

I just adore your counters! I love the Polar White Inset Cabinets you chose!

BEG17, the cabinetry of the island is 30" x 78". There are standard depth base cabinets with two 6" square columns attached at each end (if that makes sense). The counter is 38" x 80.5".

RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Lynn2006, thank you again!

What a lovely kitchen! The colors are perfect and that quartz - THUD. Enjoy!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Your kitchen is exquisite!!! Each and every detail is perfect! I especially love your backsplash!
(I must say you had one of the nicest "before" kitchens I have seen:)


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

So beautiful! I love the chandeliers and the counters especially. The knobs are also a lovely touch. I was a bit confused by the TV/under-cabinet picture until I realized that you were not trying to show that Shakira & co. were enjoying your new kitchen, but rather, to show off your plug molds! Enjoy your gorgeous new space.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Your kitchen looks amazing. It's incredible how much of a change it is.... sometimes I hear people on hear say "I have white cabinets now, and I like it, but I'm afraid if I get white again it won't be a big enough change...". This is the perfect example of why that's not true.

I love the choices that you made. It all comes together beautiful.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

BakerJen, I cracked up when I read your comment about Shakira!! I had to go back and look at the pic to see what you were talking about. I didn't even really notice it when I posted. Should have had the TV off!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Looks really awesome!! Well done!!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Back for another look-I love every aspect of your kitchen. As someone else said, every detail is perfect & it all works so well together.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Wow, so beautiful!! I had never heard of Shiloh cabinets. We went the custom site-built cabinet route and I'm certain that I would have been happier with something like these. Live & learn.

Love your backsplash. Love everything actually!!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

I LOVE your island choice for color. it goes so well with the white perimeter cabinets and is just stunning. I love the back splash tile and the design is absolutely beautiful. Very classy. Love all your choices!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Count me as loving the island color too!. The backsplash comes in a close second to my favorite things in this kitchen. It's great that you posted about Shiloh. So many people here seem to be asking about it. I have never used them but I find that they come up quite often.

Other things I really like: the glass corner upper cabinet door (super pretty!!), and the coffee nook.

Enjoy enjoy--it's beautiful!!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Like a few others, I thought your original kitchen looked quite nice.

But your new kitchen is quite spectacular. It's just on a whole other level.

Congratulations - enjoy!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Stunning kitchen!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Love the gray colors you used. Awesome colors. Not boring at all! Congrats, your kitchen turned out fantastic. NancyLouise


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

lcskaisgir - It's fabulous!!! Love the pendants, the backsplash, the backsplash focal point (which I almost never like-always feel like it detracts vs. adds - in your case, it adds!), the gorgeous, rich color of your island, your hardware choices, and your granite. A home run :)

Best, oldbat2be


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Your kitchen is so lovely. I am in the midst of a kitchen remodel and am also going from white cabinets to white cabinets again. Your before picture looked quite nice but I was so taken by your after picture, just beautiful! There are so many details that can make or break a project and you made so great detail choices!!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

lcskaisgir, agree with kateshome that your new kitchen is so beautiful showing that picking out everything in the kitchen to complement each other and making great choices is what makes your kichen a wow! It is what I am going to try to do but on a smaller scale.

I am back into liking the Polar White again feeling I want to go with a counter with gray and off-white in it as my tile has gray veins so if I get the right counter to tie in with my floor and cabinets, I will be so happy. Initially I was looking at more creamy busy counters which I feel was throwing me off and the busy counters were fighting with my busy non-slip Porcelain tile (that to me looks like real stone) with all the gray veins in it but also beiges and off-white shades.

Your kitchen is such an inspiration as I am in love with everything you did. I love the counters so much and have printed pictures of your kitchen and Michelle16's kitchen that used the same counters. I also love the mixture of your hardware and the big drawers for the pots and pans.

What is the width of the big drawers used for your pots and pans? Do you have a picture of the cabinet used for the trash? I am still going back and forth on buying from Rev-A-Shelf the trash can with a lid that opens when the door opens to put the trash inside the under-sink cabinet or using up one of my small cabinets that was going to be all drawers for the trash. Does the trash can have a lid or does it not need it?


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Lynn, my cabinet guy was JUST here to take pics and I discussed the trash issue w/him, ironically enough! I am not housing the trash in the cabinet I originally planned (which is part of the reason of not getting all drawers for me...flexibility to switch things around at any point if I so choose to). It has really been a pain in the rear for me to figure out what to do w/it. I have had a problem finding a trash pullout that attaches to the door of an INSET cabinet. My cabinet guy says they don't really recommend them because of having to get the door mounted EXACTLY right for it to fit. So basically I have to get a pull out that does not attach to the door, which is what I had before. I had a Rev a Shelf before. Not sure if I'm going to do that or another. It is not exactly what I want, but I guess in the scheme of things, it's a small compromise. And about needing a lid, I have never been able to smell my garbage while being housed in a cabinet, even with no lid, so I'm not sure it's necessary.

The width of my drawers under the cooktop is 36". I love having my pans there and the lids in their own drawer above. In the lower drawer I have all of my baking dishes. While I mentioned the flexibility of not having ALL drawers, the one cabinet in my island I DO wish was drawers. Ahhh, hindsight....


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Lynn, maybe you should post a pic of your floor tile and ask for opinions for counters. Sounds like one of the white granites might be what you're looking for...maybe river white?


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Thank you so much lcskaisgir for your two timely posts! I am having three drawers where there is now a cabinet that only has a tiny shelf in the back causing so much wasteful space. I was worried the drawers were too wide as they are 36" wide in the plan I had with everyone since 2011. They all wanted me to go with a cabinet but I wanted drawers for my pots and pans and I see I am right.

Thanks for letting me know that I do not need a lid as I never had a trash can without a lid before or in a cabinet so this is new to me. I moved my Human Solution Stainless Steel trash can with the foot pedal and soft closing lid to my home office and I love it there. But to keep walking from my kitchen through my family room, dining room and then into the formal living room which is my home office (clients never walk through my house as that is the room next to the foyer area and front door) to throw out trash is not working. I need a trash can in my kitchen.

My client is here.


 o
Counters - RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Lcskaisgir, I like the idea of posting a picture of my tiles as each tile looks a little bit different. I will do this as soon as I get out what I have to get out in the next week for work deadlines as I can't remember how to post pictures and must figure it out again.

Thank you so much for being there for me, along with all the other members on this list.

I guess I have always been a numbers person and I am not good at seeing the whole picture. But I see now that a kitchen looks nice not by one item but by how everything in the kitchen complements each other.

I think you are right that maybe river white granite will go nicely with my tile.

In 2011, I had picked out samples (still have the samples here) of Santa Cecilia, Giallo Ornamental and New Venetian Gold here as when I called to return them, I was told to keep them. So far every kitchen place has told me they do not go with my tile as they compete and I need something less busy with some gray in it. Seeing your kitchen, I see that Shiloh's Polar White really does look nice with off-whites and grays. I have a red tea pot that I keep on the stove and some red pot holders and towels so I will just add touches of red for color in my kitchen.

I have so much work to do. I am glad I put the kitchen decision off as I am still learning and I will be ready to make a decision after tax season once I pick out my counter. I still love the beaded inset cabinets by Shiloh.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Lcskaisgir, you really have done a lovely job with the reno and that's saying a lot considering how nice your original kitchen looked. I love the way everything goes together - it's perfect. I think I have the same light fixture that you have in the eating area - I must be headed in the right direction!!! I can't wait to actually look at the photos on my lap top versus phone.

Congrats and enjoy!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

What an elegant kitchen! The pendants are great and I really like the counters, too. So pretty. Perfect island color and the edge on the counter is pretty spectacular!

Did you find a good recipient for your old cabs, which are nicer than anything I've ever had up to now, btw? :)


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

So pretty! Everything ties together so nicely. That crackle tile...sigh. Love the cab hardware and pendants also. I appreciate you taking the time to post the susan and the wood hollow inserts as well. ;) Enjoy!

I can't wait to get my silas island up! My cabs are still sitting in the garage waiting for install...soft white though and that is making me a teeny tiny nervous. If my kitch turns out even half as nice as yours I'll be thrilled!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Mgoblue, Pottery Barn? I actually got mine a couple years ago from Overstock and it is identical to the Pottery Barn one. I was a little worried about keeping it after the remodel because the finish does not match the pendant lights finish but I haven't even noticed since the kitchen has been done. Somehow it just goes....probably because the crystals tie it together?

Deedles, we gave some of our cabinets to a friend. The others are still sitting in my garage. With the frigid temperatures we've had in Michigan this winter, we just haven't wanted to spend any time out there to sort them out and see what we have left.

Autumn.4, isn't it driving you nuts having the cabinets sitting out in the garage?! How long before they will be installed? I hope you love the Silas as much as I do. Did you get a glaze? And about the soft white, every color of white looks different in every kitchen so I'm sure yours will look beautiful.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

You got it lcskaisgir - pottery barn! I bought mine several years ago and took it with me when I moved. I love how it looks with all the crystals. It works really well where you have it.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Wow - I actually liked your before picture but your new kitchen is absolutely gorgeous. I was just pricing the KA pro series appliances, calacatta quartz and Shiloh cabinets for my kitchen a few months ago. Great choices!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

lcskaisgir, did you decide what you are doing with yours corbels?


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

NO! Sadly, I really don't see many options since I never even wanted the matching ones on my hood to begin with. I am going to leave them off the island for sure. What's funny is that they originally sent me the wrong ones...much more transitional and simple. The cabinet guy still has them and I have considered getting those back and having him order matching ones in white for the hood (and swapping those w/the current ones on the hood). I'm sure it would be more hassle than it's worth though. My contractor suggested using them for bookends!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Just want to add my admiration for your finished product, it is like a piece of art.

I will admit to loving your old kitchen too, though, for that scheme is very close to what i had in mind for my own kitchen, but with a lighter, slightly more silver green. I cold see it getting o your nerves after awhile, though.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Expensive set of bookends. What they charge for them is ridiculous. Shiloh's cabinets are reasonable, but their accessories I think are overpriced.


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Oh snap! My "facelift to sell" is looking a lot like your "before." LOL. I think I commented earlier but your transformation is really top notch. I'm glad this thread keeps popping back up. So fun to see your pictures. Gorgeous!


 o
RE: White & gray kitchen reveal, lots of pics!

Aries61, I have intentionally NOT looked on my paperwork to see how much I paid for them! Lol

Losmobo, I liked my old kitchen and have gotten many comments from others about it as well. So hopefully potential buyers will feel the same about yours. We really didn't plan on doing a complete overhaul, but one thing led to another...
