RE: Kohler Stage sink faucet location (Follow-Up #5)

I decided that I needed space for a garbage can more than the accessories rack. I also wanted a drawer for my prep knives. Also, the accessories rack only holds the plastic trays and the prep bowls (which are porcelain). They don't hold the mother of all cutting boards -- I knew I would need a special place for that baby. I asked my cabinet maker to configure the sink cab to have a drawer and garbage pull. This is what it looks like from the outside.


This is with the drawer and doors open. To store the wood cutting board and large tray, I bought this upright divider from BBB and put it under the sink. I'll store the small tray and prep bowls in a nearby upper cab.


There are metal bracket holders on the end of the sink to hold the accessory tray. They cut out the drawer back to fit under the shallow part of the sink and around the brackets - that side of the drawer is also about 3/4 inch shorter than the other to allow for the shallow part of the sink. This picture shows that part.


Hope I didn't bore you with my photos, but I'm glad I did this modification. It just seemed to make sense to have the garbage close to my prep area, and in my kitchen, that was where I was planning to put it before I discovered the Stages sink.

Keep us updated!

List of Materials Used for Kitchen Remodel (Follow-Up #11)

posted by: lmalm53 on 07.16.2009 at 03:50 am in Kitchens Forum

Thanks so much everyone for all the nice comments! My primary goals in doing the kitchen remodel were to update the look, improve functionality and to warm up the color scheme using vibrant earth tones for a slightly Tuscan feel. I have been very happy with the transformation. Its amazing how some paint and granite can make such a difference.

I had to look up my old notes to find the names of several of our materials used but here is the short list as requested:

My Granite is called EL DORADO and is from Brazil.

My Backsplash tile is a Mexican Travertine 3x6 Subway called DESERT CREAM IMPERIAL from Florida Tile

Kitchen Sink is a Blanco 1-3/4 Anthracite Silgranite

Kitchen Faucet is the Lady Grohe

Cooktop is the Thermador 30 inch Induction with the Popup Vent system

Double Ovens are the 27 inch Kitchenaid Architect Series II

Microwave is the GE Profile model PVM2070DM1BB

Beverage Center is the MARVEL 15 inch BARM-BB-G with the all black framed glass door

Original 20 year old dark cherry cabinetry custom made by Dutch Mills in Goshen Indiana. Under cabinet lighting is Seagull Ambiance Xenon Low Voltage Linear Lighting on dimmers.

Kitchen window shades are Graber brand light filtering pleated shades, Lucia model and the color is Elderberry 4050

We used all BEHR paints but some of the colors were custom mixed. The yellow kitchen walls and soffits were a Restoration Hardware color called SAFFRON which we had color matched in the BEHR paint

The burgundy accent color used on the kitchen windows and on the powder room walls was BEHRs CURRANT JAM

The Sunroom walls were BEHRs WHISPERING PINE

The Sunroom Ceiling was a Restoration Hardware color BAY LAUREL that we color matched in BEHR

Hallway to laundry was BEHRs CUP OF COCOA

Laundry room walls were BEHRs AUTUMN GOLD

Regarding the questions about removing the light box over the island. My neighbor did most the remodel work for me. He is a licensed electrician and just removed the wood box frame and fluorescent fixtures. We luckily had an intact drywall ceiling under the light box so it just involved installing new pendant and recessed can lights in the ceiling by repositioning the original wiring from the light box and installing the new fixtures. There was minimal drywall patching required. We upgraded to dimmer switches also.
