RE: Spice Storage help (Follow-Up #11)

posted by: breezygirl on 05.27.2013 at 06:23 pm in Kitchens Forum

I'm curious why you think a spice drawer isn't enough space. I could fit at least 96 spices in my 15.75" wide drawer, although I only store about 90 (including all my specialty salts). A drawer is so much easier to use than a cupboard. One pull of the drawer and everything is visible with labels. No hunting around or moving jars to get in the back. My spice drawer is one of THE best things about my new kitchen. (Ignore the blue tape labels with my hand writing.)

Large Reach In Pantry Pics - 55" Wide by 90" Tall

posted by: kiko on 02.24.2013 at 07:31 pm in Kitchens Forum

Here are some pics of our large reach in pantry. I just thought I'd share it for organization ideas (and because I just redid my labels!). It has 5 shelves that are about 18 inches deep. The shelves are generally 13 inches apart (except for the unpainted one my husband added at the top to create tray storage for me). The top shelf has 20 inches of room and the bottom shelf (from floor to first shelf) has 24 inches of room. My husband added the light rope and an outlet for the wine fridge. We added the Elfa door racks originally to store wraps and dry goods but I decided later to use them for prettier items instead.

Here's a very old "before" pic.

1. Drawers instead of cabinets for dishware and pots and pans.
2. Dimmable under cab lighting.
3. Toe-kick drawer for storing pizza stone, cookie sheets and fold-up step stool.

Extra credit: :-) Love my Impala Black granite so, so much.

If anyone has pictures of drawers under the sink instead of the usual doors, I would love to see them.

Thanks, Peke

RE: Granite to use instead of Lagos Blue? (Follow-Up #1)

posted by: EAM44 on 09.01.2012 at 04:27 pm in Kitchens Forum

Granite is a little speckle-y and busy. How about Inca Brown Marble with a grey linen floor tile?

Another option would be to embrace the movement and pick a granite you love, then choose another bs. This is honed antique brown granite with a possible bs alternative.

I'm not entirely sure which of the colors at the bottom of your mock-up was supposed to be the floor, so I removed the yellow and left the orange in this image. The left is with Inca Brown Marble, the right with honed Antique Brown granite.

Thank you for letting me share! I am sooooo happy with everything. My favorite part is all the sunlight that comes in through the french doors and windows on that one wall. I would be happy to answer any questions that you might have!

Beagles - you even outdid my drawers!
This isn't the final arrangement but new pictures coming soon!
The lower drawer has a few stacked fry pans that are too big to put on the side and there are a few larger pans left in the Super Susan!

Paper Towels--To Those With Built In Holders

posted by: 2LittleFishies on 06.08.2012 at 08:53 pm in Kitchens Forum

For those that have these.... do you still like them? Is it an issue with dirty/wet hands grabbing the towels (dirtying cabs and/or getting them wet)??

Would you do it again?

beagles I think?-

Just finished our Backsplash, thank you for your help.

posted by: nursetammi on 08.19.2009 at 05:28 pm in Kitchens Forum

We finished our backsplash last night. I ended up going with the Scabos tumbled 3x6 Travertine. I also decided to just frame the plaque in bronze rather than using 4x4 tiles. I was struggling over how to frame the plaque when all along I just wanted a frame. Sometimes the answer is so simple, you don't even think of it (ha ha). Thanks for all your help and suggestions. We are almost ready for the finished kitchen site :) We are just short of 6 months with this remodel.
