I also have painted walls only. Here are a few pics from my inspiration file with a backsplash.

RE: What's above your pullout trash? (Follow-Up #24)

posted by: olivertwist on 01.22.2013 at 10:49 pm in Kitchens Forum

I posted a very similar question last month:

I thought about installing an extra tall toe-kick drawer underneath, thereby raising the whole trash pull-out up and eliminating the need for a drawer on top at all, but instead settled on an interior drawer for paper recycling as shown in the picture. (Sorry, I forgot who this belongs to but it is in the thread I indicated).

Also not mine, but here is one similar to taggie's - with drawers on the bottom and shelves on top. This seems to be the best solution, I think. You have the ease of just pulling a drawer to get to a lot of your items (look at all that stuff in there!), and the flexibility of the adjustable shelves for the odd shaped items.

RE: Anyone here NOT choosing Shaker cabinets? (Follow-Up #9)

posted by: TorontoTim on 01.05.2013 at 05:34 pm in Kitchens Forum

No shaker here. In the right space they're great, but it needs to be the right cabinet for the house. We're in a 100 year old home and like marble etc. so went with a more traditional trim profile. BM Cloud White, no glazes. Clean and simple like a Shaker, but a little detail softens it up and frankly makes it easier to keep clean.

Avoid faux finishes like the plague in my opinion (i.e. 'glazes'). Faux is a fancy French word for fake.

RE: Shaker Cabinet Style (Follow-Up #2)

Here's the other style: still "wide" but not as wide.
As you can see, this one does allow be to keep the shaker style on the drawers, but the first cabinet style did not.

Mine is 14" deep, full overlay, and fits everything I want to store. Dinner plates, pasta bowls, cereal bowls, both sized of drinking glasses, mugs, etc.

I think you'd be more than fine with 15".

RE: Quartzite countertop (Follow-Up #47)

posted by: michelle16 on 12.03.2012 at 08:27 am in Kitchens Forum

donttakeitforgranite-you are mistaken- the stone yards do call this type of white macubus- calacutta quartzite. The difference is in the veining. White macabus that runs with lines running across is called luce di luna. When the veining is random like Na Ro's it's called calacutta quartzite because it resembles the pattern of marble.It also is not a cross between marble and granite- it is strictly a quartzite. VERY hard, will NOT etch, or stain. Very durable. I have it and have no issues with it. Mine is the calacutta quartzite like Na Ro's and Muskokascp's.Hope this help's you -island- in your decision, thanks, Michelle

RE: Pantry cabinets: pull-out drawers or shelves? (Follow-Up #5)

posted by: badgergal on 12.30.2012 at 11:30 pm in Kitchens Forum

I have an 18 inch cabinet with pullouts in both the upper and lower portions. I cannot reach the top pullout without a step stool so I use that pullout for items that are only needed occasionally. My previous kitchen had a wider (30-36 in ?) 24 inch deep cabinet. I was forever sliding cans or other items around in that cabinet to get to what I wanted. It is much easier to find items in a 24 inch deep cabinet with pullouts. I am surprised how much I can fit into my smaller pantry. It isn't exactly full in the picture below but it gives you an idea how an 18x24 pantry cabinet looks.

I think the general response will be pullout shelves. But I had a 36" wide and 24" deep pantry in my last kitchen and it worked great. Would not have wanted pullouts on it for the same reason you state. I do have a pullouts in 24" wide single-door pantry and love them.

Can you get the best of both worlds by doing pullouts in your 18 and adjustables in your 36? I realize this would involve some storage changes (e.g. some paper products in the 36 instead) so it might not work for you.

In any case, I would highly recommend doing drawers in the lower section of the pantry and then doors with pullouts or adjustable shelving in the upper section only. That gives you the best of both worlds (easy 'pullouts' aka drawers) in the lower section of both pantry cabs no matter their width.

He is a pic of ours with the drawers below and door above. Forgive the dog, he knows his treats are in that pantry and I can never get a pic without him running up and thinking he might be getting lucky!
