Modest City Kitchen almost done, inset and Taj Mahal

posted by: ratrem on 07.18.2012 at 02:23 pm in Kitchens Forum

We finally moved into our condo after a couple of months of staying with family after our house sold. Still have a lot of painting and finishing touches and unpacking to do, but I thought I would share our kitchen. Still needs final touches but the basics are there.





it is open to our modest living area and dining area, my office is next to the living, as you can see a work in progress with all the painting.

98.627% Finished Kitchen - Transitional White Inset w/ glass tile

posted by: theanimala on 01.02.2010 at 03:00 pm in Kitchens Forum

After reading this site daily for 6 months now and getting tons of great advice it's time for us to post our finished kitchen. In keeping with the style of the house we needed to go more modern than traditional, but we didn't want something too contemporary. Also, we couldn't decide on painted or stained cabinets, so we decided to do both by painting the perimeter while having the island stained.

Although we moved no walls, it ended up being a bigger project then we expected as the old tile floor went through our foyer, powder room and laundry room. Also didn't have correct sub-flooring, and we wanted to move some of the appliances around, etc. The reason the it is only 98.627% completed, is we still have 1.373% left to do, such as glass shelves in glass front doors so in cabinet lighting can shine all the way through, etc.

We're putting in these 12" pantries around a 36" Electrolux fridge. Side-opening pantry on the side you can see here. On the other side, a drop down secretary w/charging stations. Above it will be bookshelves and below it our shredder and another shelf, all all behind doors. Good luck!

The left side is a pullout. The right side is a cupboard which opens on the side, around the corner. It was going to be a broom closet but quickly morphed into more food storage!fridge and back stairway

Here is a picture of our pantries flanking fridge. On the end is the utility cabinet and on the right side is a pantry with pull out drawers. Tray divider is over the fridge. We love the setup.

Mine isn't a pantry, but could be. It holds dishes on 2 shelves and small appliances (blender and food processor) on the top shelf. The bottom hold cookie sheets and racks. The very top door is only reached if I stand in a chair - I don't even remember what's up there. lol

Here are more pictures: My Kitchen

I had copper panels our the fridge in our last house, and got the copper from my HVAC guy. I have 2 copper backsplashes (left of fridge on pine hutch, in laundry room) in this house, as well as the copper hood and ceiling in the powder room. Got all of the sheets again from our HVAC guy. He came out to measure and cut the ones on the hood.

Rococogurl's kitchen has cabinets on either side of her fridge:

RE: Please recommend a range hood for me (Follow-Up #4)

posted by: kompy on 05.18.2013 at 12:22 pm in Kitchens Forum

A client of mine got this one last year. It looked great and they love it. Kinda pricey still but Zephyr offers other types too:

I've also had clients that really like the Broan Allure and Evolution....a step down but not quite the low end hoods you see in stock at box stores.

Broan has a few that look the zephyr too in the $400 range I think.

30" for hood flanked by 12" wall cabs, leaves a 1.5" buffer between the windows.
Have you considered an undercabinet hood? Example linked below. They can be nice, still allowing wall cabs to remain a focus. Storage above is partially consumed by vent pipe.

RE: Quilted Stainless Steel Backsplash (Follow-Up #8)

posted by: Mrs_Nyefnyef on 05.17.2013 at 05:43 pm in Kitchens Forum

Another idea is what Martha Stewart has done for her set for the PBS show "Martha Stewart's Cooking School". It looks like stainless steel tiles behind the range--or perhaps it's a stainless sheet made to look like tile. The stainless tile pattern flows seamlessly into her stone or ceramic tiles (I can't tell which kind they are). There is no demarcation between the two types of tiles, it's very cleverly laid out. (you can find the show on your local PBS if you want to see the kitchen in more detail.)

Almost Finished- Light and Dark Kitchen with White Alaska Granite

posted by: brianadarnell on 12.03.2011 at 10:25 am in Kitchens Forum

First of all, thank you to everyone who contributed so much to this kitchen. I learned so much and made so many wise decisions because of information I gained on this site. I found this site just as our new build construction began and was able to utilize all of the wonderful information into my kitchen design for function, even though I already knew exactly how I wanted the kitchen to look.

We ended up completing the house project ourselves so finalizing the kitchen and getting settled has taken some time. Hosting Thanksgiving for 14 was a major catalyst in the effort to at least get our main floor permanently decorated. Now the only thing missing is the barstools!

from the great room
Side by Side Refrigerator- Love it. I hated the previous french door refrigerator we had. So happy to go to the side by side.
Angled Corner cabinet- I know these aren't popular, but the storage is fabulous for all of our stemware.
Cabinet on the back of the island- its amazing how much fits under there!
Microwave cabinet- Since we don't use the microwave that often, I'm glad we hid it. With our open floor plan, I didn't want it visible from the great room and dining room except when in use.
5 Piece Drawer Heads- these were an upgrade, but I love the way they look.
Drawers, Drawers, Drawers- Love them! I had a lot of drawers in our old house and went with all drawers this time except for the sink base and the corner susan.
Pantry- Custom designed the shelf layout.
Lower Corner Cabinet-
Dining Room Table- just off the kitchen. Thanks for your help on selecting the table. It was delivered just a few days before Thanksgiving. It has one more leaf that we take out for everyday use.

RE: More range hood hell- re: height, depth (Follow-Up #6)

posted by: phylhl on 03.03.2013 at 07:46 pm in Kitchens Forum

Right - what GWlolo said. Do not install. First - how wide is your range? Most hoods need to be 6" wider than the range. I would totally forget the cabinet above - not with a 6'2 DH and your ceiling height. There are 10" high hoods. See if going 36" above your range will be good (otherwise the hood won't capture much, ,it will be more for show). You can certainly get one less deep.

If all else fails, you can get one any size, depth and height from Modern Aire. We found ourselves in the exact same position - the KD couldn't get anything like what we wanted in a hood so we went for a statement hood. There are lovely SS ones out there in varying sizes.

At then end of the long wall I have a broom closet, like this:

But there will be shelves on one side for keys/phones/etc

I don't have much backsplash space and I wanted it "clean" so we are doing outlets like this:

I'm totally splurging on my seems I'm splurging on all the details! Anyways, doing a 28 inch wide by 42 inch tall accent area behind cooktop with Artistic tile's Danse Lucido which is this:

so...this is what my builder wants to do. The lighting isn't great on this photo but you'll get the general idea. (plus, the WHITE dishwasher is

Picture the darker tile, in staggared brick pattern with tiny stripe of mosaic glass at the top (eliminate the larger stripe of mosaic)....the three decorative tiles under the window on a diagonal...and the ornate switchplate covers to match the hardware and faucet. Here's a photo if you can visualize it?


I admit that it feels busy at first but all of the elements tie something, our kitchen is wide open into our diningroom/livingroom area which has predominately dark wood furniture....thoughts? I have a terrible time visualizing a finished project like this but our builder is confident that we will want something to break up the large amount of BS that we have.

I had my doubts also with 8' ceiling but we did it and I love them. I actually think they could have been bigger....


Our penninsula looks out into the diningroom/livingroom. I think the trick is to keep them at a proper height. They can't hang too low.
