First off I wanted to say thank you to everyone for all the advice and tips over the past few months (especially you OntarioMom!)! We're all moved into our new home and are slowly getting settled in and unpacked. We actually moved in late August but I'm just getting around to uploading photos we took on the day we got our keys!

So here goes:

Very elegant & dramatic. Love the countertop/backaplash combo & the range. The stainless looks great with all your other elements. Beautiful floor! Congratulations!

Sherri58, the cabinet to the right of the dishwasher is our "critter cabinet." It actually opens to the side and holds all of our dogs' medicines, vet records, food, leashes, and collars as well as birdseed and suet for my outdoor feeders. I can also fit my binoculars and birding books inside! It's right by the back door onto the deck so it's very convenient!

And thanks all for the comments! I've edited the original post to include a product list! :)

I'm still shocked that a laminate counter can look that good! ;)

That's Formica!?!?! WOW. Love it! Everything coordinates beautifully. Especially love the flooring stain choice with your dramatic kitchen. Well done.

RE: New Kitchen Final Reveal!

Amazing looking with laminate counters. Can you post some close ups of the island counter edges?

I really like all your choices.


 o
RE: New Kitchen Final Reveal!

those are the best laminate countertops I've ever seen. amazing. i would never have thought they were anything but marble. again, great job.


 o
RE: New Kitchen Final Reveal!

I love it!!! Nice choices.

RE: New Kitchen Final Reveal!

Debrak2008, here are a couple iPhone shots of the edges. Unfortunately we were not able to get the seamless edge because of the shape of our island. Our builder and kitchen fabricator both advised against using seamless edge because of the seamed joints (miter seams). We actually would have had to sign a waiver saying that they were not liable for problems as apparently the bolt together counters are prone to problems.

There are no seams on the top of any of our counters (the island is one huge piece of laminate) but we do have the seam all the way around the edge. They did a pretty good job of trying to match up the design so that it was a more natural flow but of course, if you look carefully you can see the seam.

It's funny you ask about that because when it originally went up I was not happy because I was expecting the seamless bullnose edge but once they explained the problem to me it was okay. At the time I thought it would bother me a lot more than it actually does.

Ha, I tend to focus more on the backsplash (ooh shiny!) anyway! ;)

Oh, and one side of the island has the baking sheet racks and the stand mixer lift as pictured above...the other side has this built-in bookshelf for my cookbooks! That's one of my favorite things in the kitchen! :)

I would never have guessed that your counters were formica. They look gorgeous and the backsplash is beautiful against them. Very pretty kitchen.


 o
RE: New Kitchen Final Reveal!

Wow, I was going to say how pretty your marble counters were! Beautiful sparkly kitchen... how do you like your mixer lift?

I have that Farmer's market cookbook, too. Love it.

Enjoy your wonderful new kitchen!

RE: New Kitchen Final Reveal!

Nice job. Love the cabinets.


 o
RE: New Kitchen Final Reveal!

Thanks Sparkler. It was the orientation of that cabinet that made me ask. I wondered if it might be something like that. Great idea.

I'm going to echo the comments on the counters... Holy Cow Patties, that's Formica?!? I thought I read the product list wrong!

Beautiful in every way! Hope it makes you smile every day.


 o
RE: New Kitchen Final Reveal!

Beautiful! I couldn't wait to see the materials list to see what the countertop was. Formica! It looks fantastic!


 o
RE: New Kitchen Final Reveal!

Sparkler,

I am thrilled to see the photos of your kitchen and surrounding rooms. You have made outstanding choices. As others have said, the counter is stunning and the back splash is a winning element! I adore those floors -- having one floor throughout really enlarges the space. The wall colour is gorgeous too!!

Can you tell us where you ordered your cabinets from? How was that experience?

Enjoy your gorgeous home. I am sure it will be a dream to use and entertain in over the holidays!

Carol

Congratulations! The laminate is amazing -- it looks just like Brazillian Arabescato or some versions of Super White. I love how your range coordinates so beautifully with the cabinets. The strong horizontal lines of the double ovens look great with the hardware.
