RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!! I've seen pics here and there, (especially when you were so upset over the cabinet color)

It has turned out FANTASTIC! I love your pendants, your floor, everything. Your backsplash is gorgeous.

What size is your pantry? Is your freezer across from it? I think it looks kind of like Rhome's setup and I absolutely love hers. Looks like a walk-through? I kind of remember your floorplan, but don't remember the pantry part.

Hope you are enjoying that beautiful space, and so glad you ended up loving the cabinet color. I think it looks magnificent.

Congratulations to you and your family!

RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

See?! It turned out fabulously after all! But the best part is that YOU love it! Hooray for happy outcomes!

Envious of all your pantry storage, and that tile is TDF. I know I'll be back to look longer once the kids are in bed. Thank you for sharing it with us!

RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

The pantry is through the door by the fridge and yes it is a walk through. On the left side is the standup freezer and to the right is the pantry storage. The pantry is about 12 x 6.5 feet.

RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Sunny, it's a beautiful kitchen, no doubt. The tile took is what made me stop scrolling and just look. Wonderful. The quieter star is your floor; really love it. Is it as rich and rustic as it appears to be in the pictures?

And on a practical note, we all value a nice pantry!

Your backsplash is so mesmerizing. Is this what you used http://www.amazon.com/Bianco-Venatino-Marble-Polished-Random-Strip/dp/B0050DV2G8/ref=pd_cp_hi_0

They look so good with the grout.

 o

Wow, turned out beautifully! You really nailed it. Gorgeous. Love the pantry.

Spell-check is so funny! It took me a long time to figure out that "permitter" meant "perimeter"! Got it now! :-)

Enjoy!


 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Stunning! I loooooove it! Where did you get the backsplash? How many inches between your island and your stove top area? How big is your island? We are about to start our kitchen and I wouldlove to use some of your sameitems if you don't mind! Love it!


 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Great Job! love the backsplash and your floors!

 o

 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Agree with all the above and super ditto on the beautiful tile that you chose. So pretty!

RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Thanks for all the nice comments. I love my new space. I went from a 1930 plywood kitchen with a 20 year old fridge,one small sink and a cheap electrical stove to my dream kitchen. I haven't used it much yet because we have busy getting settled. The hot weather has made my husband anxious to use his new BQ area so cooking has been at an all time low. Tomorrow I plan on breaking in with homemade pizzas. I used to have only tile counters to work with so I will be nice to be able to just use the counter to work the dough.

To answer some of your questions I got the backsplash from Tierra Sol and it is called Venatino Polished Random Strip. The link that lily posted looks like what I put in. I love marble but it was not practical for us with the kids on the farm so I used it as my backsplash.

Colorfast the floor is rustic. We have young kids so we wanted something with lots of knots and grain. It does not have a UV finish on it. I got it from Antique Impressions. It is from the Castillo Collection called Cadiz in 8". It is a deep reddish brown.

oldbat - The ovens are 30 inches.

mjocean - The island is 10.5 feet by 4.5 feet.

Patty -The stools are from a local store called Finesse Home Furnishings,

bd50mom - The island is 52" away from the stovetop. With the stove, sink and dishwasher all being in the one area we wanted extra space and I don't regret it. Steal away!

Once I find my cord I will post better pictures. We built right beside our other house so you would think it would not be hard to find it with the short move.

It is just gorgeous! Sunny Alberta is a perfect description, it is so bright with all the windows. I do love that pantry too.


 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Gorgeous! Your backsplash and floors in particular are stunning! Enjoy!


 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Is the name of backsplash BIANCO VENATINO MARBLE RANDOM STRIP MOS POL. I wasnt sure if this was it or not, because I couldn't get it to come up in the exact name you gave me. Thanks again! Still love it! Have a great weekend!


 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

bd that is the tile I used.


 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Wow, that kitchen is stunning! I especially love the backsplash. Great job!


 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Sunny, Your kitchen is simply stunning! Does your marble backsplash really give off the rainbow of lights and colors in person as it does in your photos? They look pretty subtle close up but, oh, the long shot really shows the variation of colors, at least in the photo. Do tell...!

Love your kitchen!! My cab & counter colors are the similar to yours so it's nice to see what mine will someday look like.

Can you post how you like your KA ovens and cooktop after you start using them?

And is your SZ fridge the flush install?

RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Sunny, I went and looked at your flooring and it's really beautiful. It's also nice that it has 2-3 sandings potentially because it's thicker.

Here is a link that might be useful: SunnyAlberta's flooring

RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

I was away when you posted your finished kitchen, so I've just come across it now. It's lovely! Congratulations! I love your cabinet color.


 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Ooohhh, I missed this when you first posted too! So glad it got bumped up today by laurajane. A dream kitchen for sure. LOVE the backsplash and the pantry. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

mmhmm (another sunny, though lately somewhat stormy, Albertan)


 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Wow!
Not sure why my messages stuttered and repeated - sorry about that - but that is one gorgeous kitchen.
I'll take any part of it!
Love everything!!
What is your favorite part of the kitchen?


 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Your kitchen is gorgeous. What are the dimensions of the kitchen and dining space? Thanks!


 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

That's beautiful!!! Really really great job!


 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Absolutely breathtaking!!!!! Just one quick question, if you don't mind - where did you get the shelving for your pantry?

Thank you and you must be so proud!!


 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Sunnyalberta - so I found your finished kitchen...and your island dimension (should have googled first). I don't see your kitchen dimension though - if you wouldn't mind sharing. Very nice space! Great idea putting the marble on the back splash for preservation instead of on the work surface. You get to have the look without the stress!

I seen snbtwins above has similar questions. Hopefully you are finished unpacking and see the thread bump.

Thanks!

RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Sunnyalberta-
Hi! I am a new member to GW, I absolutely love this site and the information it has giving me with our kitchen/entire main level remodel.

Do you know a Sherwin Williams or Ben Moore white paint that is comparable to the French White you used? Like a lot of people on this site, my biggest struggle in this process is choosing the right white. I will have the painter of course, do some sample boards, but I am still having a hard time narrowing it down for samples.

I love your kitchen (probably because it is very similar to what I am doing). White cabinetry, Ceasarstone Raven (perimeter counters), Bianco Romano (island granite), marble backsplash (same as yours). I keep flipping back and forth with the white color- one minute I am leaning towrards BM simply white to blend with the cool white/grey tones of the marbe and charcoal gray Ceasarstone, and the next minute leaning towards BM white dove or something more contrasting vs. matching. Then found out my painter uses Sherwin Williams and now I just have more to confuse myself with.

If you have any idea what BM or SW your cabinets may be close to, I would appreciate it.

Thanks! Your kitchen is gorgeous!

RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Love the pendants--they are just the right glitzy and tailored! The dark island looks really great too. Very very nice job!!


 o
RE: SunnyAlberta's Finished Kitchen

Just gorgeous! What color grout did you use?
