Seafoam Green granite update from today. More pics:

posted by: dorothyct on 02.13.2008 at 04:42 pm in Kitchens Forum

Today was not as productive as I would have liked. Remaining appliances were delayed yet AGAIN - don't get me started on this appliance store. Plumber did not finish. Granite guys could not finish becuase cooktop did not arrive. So tomorrow the plumber will be back to finish. The granite guys will be back to finish. The electrician will be here to finish. The appliances will be delivered at long last (we hope) so the electrician can install. 24 hours from now we should really have: running water, all working appliances, all lights (pendants, over sink light in). Yet to be done, panel on DW, knobs & pulls, window sill, finish crown moulding on half the cabinets (waiting on parts from Decora), finish the custom hood (again - waiting on parts from Decora). Tomorrow marks the 4 week mark since demo day #1 so I think I will not complain any further.

I watched all the granite work today - it is so interesting to me. I have a lot of photos if anyone wants to see (it can be boring unless it interests you I guess).

The sink is Kindred. The faucet is Grohe Bridgeford. Let me tell you how badly I want that running water.....never mind....you all get it or will eventually. Washing dishes in the bathroom sink is for the birds..........

I need sleep. Now the task is for me to choose paint color for the walls. Painters are coming on Monday.

Before/after pictures-oak to cream/glazed -pictures

posted by: nodirthere on 02.05.2008 at 10:48 pm in Kitchens Forum

We re-did our standard builder's grade oak (nothing wrong w/oak, we had just had them for 4 houses and 20 years)- Re-used all the cabinets we had,filled the wood grain, painted and glazed-cut out the inside and put some glass. I actually had a painter paint and I did the glazing. We redid this for under $9500! That includes the granite, but not the new appliances. We recessed the "ovenwall" 1 foot-and added the foot to the island overhang for more stools and put the GE Cafe slide in where the gas cooktop was. A much more functioning spot and added much needed stool space-So glad it's over-and happy w/the results- gained 10 pounds during the process ordering out so much!

RE: Please help! Wall ovens driving me crazy--Wolf, Miele, Dacor? (Follow-Up #23)

posted by: jeff256 on 07.15.2006 at 09:52 am in Appliances Forum

One point is that there are six advantium models, all different. The newest, and the one that has all the features, is the Profile (not Monogram) built-in 120 (not 220). This is the one that can double as a second oven. It is slower than the 220 Advantium, however, being only 120. Read the GE site very carefully. It also has the advantage of being 27" (comes with a 30" kit) so that it can be used with a 27" oven to save some space.

Custom Dividers for cutlery, sharps, flipper, etc. I have 4 organized drawers.

Deep base drawers for pots & pan, serving dishes, salad spinner, etc.

Waist-height drawer for tupperware -- so much easier than in a base cabinet or upper cabinet.

I have power in a drawer for cell phones, similar idea to above. I have 4 of these -- one for each family member so that's where their junk goes when cleaning up. (Got that idea from a friend.)

Pull-out shelf for toaster oven & coffee grinder. (Can grind behind closed door ahh, quiet. Outlet in back.

Hidden niche for phone jack, power, internet. I have mine behind a false cabinet back, but others have put it just below the counter in a base cabinet. Use a grommet.

I have a unique "McDonalds" flapper trash cabinet, with the trash can on wheels (rolls right out).

Shallow pantry drawers for cans (on their backs so you can read the labels), plus deep ones for cereal, etc.

I don't like the exposed wicker baskets. They just look like they'll get gunky, and be hard to clean.

I used tray dividers in the deep cabinet over the fridge--I bought two sets and spaced them more closely than most people seem to. Nothing leans.

I have a two-can trash pullout under the sink (on the far side from the dishwasher)

And I put a chrome shelf and basket combo under the sink.

I wish I'd done a pantry pullout like beatrix's.

Beyond that I didn't do much, bcs the organzing gadget itself takes up some room, and I don't have much to spare.

I have few drawers, so my spices sit on an upper shelf in this perfectly sized plastic box (though I threw the base away, and I just set it on the shelf. That way I can just take it off the shelf completely, which is easier. I write the spice names on the side of the lids, so I can see them.

Put a couple of outlets inside a cabinet so you can tuck away charging cellphones, bluetooth headsets, iPods, etc. I'm so glad I did. It gets that whole mess out of sight.
