We recently remodeled our 1970's ranch. We gutted the entire house and started over. Here are the details of the kitchen remodel:

Appliances-
Thermador 36" rangetop
Thermador 42" fridge
Thermador Microwave/ Oven combo
Thermador Dishwasher
(Went all Thermador b/c buy one- get one free deal!!)

Cabinets- Custom maple cabinets by a local shop stained tradional cherry. Pulls are Blackrock by Amerock in oil rubbed bronze.
Granite- Dakota Mahogany
Sinks- Kohler
Faucets/ Pot Filler/ Soap Dispensers- Danze Parma
Flooring- Sand and Finish 3 1/4" red oak with natural finish
Backsplash- Ivory 4" tumbled travertine with cornsilk grout
The column in the corner of the bar was something that we couldn't change. It supports the entire room. This was 4 seperate rooms before the remodel.

Beautiful job! It's so open and airy -- hard to imagine it as 4 rooms. Great choices -- Bon Appetit!

Very nice! I like the way that you did the backsplash behind the stove. It makes it stand out but in a really nice, tasteful, interesting way. With your gorgeous colored cabs, it's great you chose something that didn't take away from that. You must be loving the open room after what was a much smaller space!

That is so big and pretty! It also looks like it really ties in with the living room, of which we can see a little bit. I am also remodeling a 1970's house, lots of brown formica to remove...

What a wonderful kitchen! Gorgeous cabs and backsplash--any chance we could see a close-up of your granite? I'm sure you'll have many years of wonderful family meals and events in your newly remade home. Thanks so much for sharing and please, please, PLEASE get it included on the FKB!

Looks beautiful! Congratulations on transforming your home.

How do you like the thermador appliances so far? I am looking at that same deal.

We like them. We had a slight problem with the fridge when we got it- the crushed ice and cubed ice wires were switched. However, I called Thermador and they sent someone out right away. My plumber also accidently scratched my rangetop. The scratch was 1/2 inch wide all the way across. We called Thermador and they sent new face for the rangetop free of charge. I have been extremely pleased with the customer service. The only thing that I can really find wrong with the fridge is that it is a little loud at times. The compressor seems to run louder than my old fridge. The microwave oven combo has been awesome. The convection bake in the microwave browns and bakes just like an oven. It does a great job on brownies, scalloped potatoes, and cakes. As for the oven itself, we love the rotisserie and convection bake and roast features. One warning though- make sure that your cut out for the oven is exactly level front to back. The oven does not come with leveling legs, so you will have to shim it if it is not level or have lopsided cakes :) As for the rangetop, I love the six burners and continous grates. It is fairly easy to clean. We are very pleased with the hood. We chose the 1000 CFM internal blower. It is somewhat loud, but removes all cooking odors even on the lower settings (1 and 2). FYI--When planning your vent, make sure that you will have enough room for the vent shaft. The shaft is 12 inches in diameter. This was something that we overlooked in the planning process. The dishwasher is very different. It uses a different drying process than my old one. The dishes will not dry unless you let it run the entire cycle. It also takes a LONG time to wash (over an hour). It does a good job though. I never rinse and everything comes out clean! Hope this helps!

RE: Kitchen remodel- What do you think?

Are you still happy with all your Thermador appliances? We are trying to pick out our appliances for our remodel and love the look of Thermador but have not found great reviews on built-in refrigerator.
Thanks!

RE: Kitchen remodel- What do you think?

Wow, very classy renovation! Everything looks first class. Your carpenter is really gifted as those cabinets are gorgeous. By the way, please see if you can get better photos for the FKB. I've seen Dakota Mahogany granite with cherry stained cabinets in a showroom, and the color combination is a classic. DM includes a coral tone which is beautiful with a cherry finish.

Beautiful kitchen! Thanks for sharing. My hubs and I are building our home and I purchased the whole Thermador package. It was a tough decision because I wasn't sure who to choose from. I too took the free item marketing technique. I'm praying I made the right choice! I love to cook and bake and I am looking forward for my brand new kitchen!
