RE: Show your full depth fridge, made to look built in (Follow-Up #1)

posted by: kariwb on 01.03.2015 at 05:36 pm in Kitchens Forum

We did that! The wall behind the fridge is drywall to drywall, with the studs cut out in that spot and a beam overhead for support. Then the surrounding cabinets come out, I think, 2 inches past the standard counter depth. With this setup, it will never look truly built-in, because standard fridges need clearance for the doors so that they can open properly. So, the door part still sticks out (see second pic in post below). Doesn't bother me a bit. We couldn't have gotten it back any further anyway without recessing into the adjacent room or bumping the cabs out so far they would look strange.

I understand the lines you're talking about ... I have them. They don't bother me, I don't think they're noticeable.

kitchen reveal - completed staged kitchen - photo heavy

First, I'd like to apologize if you had to click into this and you've seen it already. I posted it before it was finished or staged for pretty pics and while I was asking for backsplash advice. So here it is completed and staged (as for staging, it's pretty much how I live except I have a lot more storage than I have things for now, so I had to put in fillers......I don't normally have a toy truck in my pantry or keep dominoes sugar or Morton salt out in the open, but since I think the packaging is pretty, I put it out). I'm including a link to the original post which contains kitchen details. Thanks for indulging me!

Don't judge me for storing supermarket bags :). Good storage for cutting boards and cookie trays.

Soapstone is here!! Pictures, pictures, pictures!

posted by: tinker_2006 on 12.01.2011 at 08:27 pm in Kitchens Forum

We've been working around the clock restoring an old 1937 Florida home, and finally.. it really looks like we are getting somewhere!

Today the rest of our soapstone counters went in (still waiting on a rebuild for laundry room cabinets). I have to admit.. I was a little bit afraid if I'd love in MY house, even though I have always loved in every kitchen picture. I was afraid it would be too dark, but knew I could leave it unoiled (which I fully expected to do) but now that it is here, oiled... it surpasses all my hopes, it is absolutely gorgeous! DH was not sure AT ALL about soapstone, but left the decision up to me, thankfully! Still need to finish the floors, install hardware, lights and appliance... but here is my kitchen so far!

They measured and cut everything in the driveway! They started Monday, but the rain came pouring down, and the rest was delivered and installed this afternoon.

I LOVE the Runnels, and would have never purchased soapstone or the runnels without GW - thank you all!

Still missing our window seat - curtains are old, old, dusty rags.. just to have something in the windows as we renovate (we don't live in this house yet)

Capegirl: good good, copy away if you like. I don't mind. Like posted above the 3M command strip hooks are what most people are using to hang their wreaths on painted surfaces. They're awesome.

RE: Soapstone...The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (Follow-Up #7)

I think people who are disappointed in their soapstone wanted it to look like this (actually a laminate!):

When in reality, it looks like this:

It's absolutely gorgeous, but it's not the same aesthetic as people who like polished granite, can't stand "clutter", and iron their jeans. ;-)

I love our paint color, it is Greenbrier Beige (Ben Moore). It is similar to Bennington Grey, and is tannish greige with some green for sure. It has worked out great! Unfortunately, this pic is darkish (stormy day when I took it), but the color is great!

I love the color of our kitchen. It is a a khaki color-Benjamin Moore Bennington Grey
Here is a picture of our kitchen, the cabinets are off white. Not much of the paint color shows, but I hope you can get the idea.
