Okay, so I think I'm done...Thank you ! (PICS)

posted by: margieb2 on 07.29.2008 at 10:38 pm in Kitchens Forum

So I think we're pretty much done except for the bar stools and a couple of other small items. The process went much more quickly than we anticipated. Demo began First week in March and the kitchen was complete by the end of May. The contractor was a dream and there were no major problems or surprises (other than the electrical safety hazards that were uncovered during demolition!)

I owe the resourceful, knowlegeable, creative, and talented members of this forum my heartfelt thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge and inspirational kitchens.

In particular, thank you to Zolablue, rococogurl, sharb, jamesk, allison0704, bella_4, charlie 123, momto4kids deanna1949, and artteacher, AMONG MANY OTHERS...for sage advice and kitchens that helped shape my kitchen vision. We had a number of setbacks, one big one due to DH's job loss. But I have to say, everything's worked out for the best.

We kept the original footprint of the room but swapped a peninsula for the island. We were a bit apprehensive aobut this as the trend is to do the revers but this setup works really well for us, creates better zones and a better flow.

SO here's a before:Before: From great room

And After:





Pantry cabinet

Spice storage


Knife drawer

Super susan

Julien Classic 30 x 18x 10

RE: Need help resolving fridge next to wall issue (Follow-Up #13)

I am in the same situation. I posted this same question a while back and had some good advice. Here is the link if you are interested.
After much reassurance from our KD, we decided to keep it as it is. My DH decided that if it a problem, our KD will be responsible... Our cabinets are being installed as we speak. My fingers are crossed! I'll let you know how it works out when our fridge is delivered.
Good luck!

Here is a link that might be useful: Oh No! Will my fridge open?

Tigerwood and/or Kempas wood floors

posted by: merimom on 04.19.2008 at 11:18 pm in Flooring Forum

We really like prefinished Tigerwood and Kempas wood floors. If you have these floors, could you please comment on them? Could you please post some pictures?

How are they wearing? Do you see a lot of the scratches? We have kids and a 30 pound dog, so we know they will get some wear, but we dont want them to look completely terrible in 5 years.

Did they get a lot darker? We dont get very much natural light and worry they will be too dark.

Since they are on the darker side, do they show all the dust/dirt? Or since the Tigerwood has so much variation in color and graining, do they actually hide the dirt?

We are thinking of putting them on the entire first floor including our kitchen. What kind of wood tones with work with this floor? We are remodeling the kitchen and wonder what kind (wood species/stain) of cabinets to go with.

Anyone installed a tigerwood floor in there new home. If so I would love to see pictures. I am leaning towards an engineered tigerwood (BR-111).

Pics of DIY remodel for 5K

posted by: holly13 on 03.31.2008 at 09:03 am in Kitchens Forum

So inspired from reading this forum, we just completed a DIY redo on this very dated kitchen.
Granite, sink & faucet cost $3,000.00 and appliances were $2,000.00 on sale.
Painting, beadboard and soffits were DIY.
The painting was a killer, but so worth it after all.

Titanium granite????

posted by: teched on 03.16.2008 at 05:13 pm in Kitchens Forum

I have searched and searched, but I can't find a post by someone who had granite called Titanium. It was posted sometime in 2008, but I think it may have fallen off the list. I thought the poster had white cabinets. If you can point me to that post, I would be very appreciative.

I Couldn't Wait To Show You Our Granite !

posted by: cactuscatie on 01.21.2008 at 03:42 pm in Kitchens Forum

I haven't posted much but I do read GW daily. I couldn't wait until our kitchen was totally completed before showing everyone our granite. It was just installed and we love it. It's called black titanium and I love the way it spills over the edge. I hope you get the idea from the pictures. Our kitchen is small and it is hard to get good picture angles.
