Galley Kitchen/Traditional Contemporary

Posted by: ktdid16 (My Page) on Mon, Sep 22, 03 at 1:22

We tore out our circa 1962 kitchen out last summer and redid everything from the
walls out. Work was done by a kitchen and bath contractor: demo to functional
appliances 6 weeks, everything but backsplash and finishing details at 9 weeks,
completely finished at around 16 weeks. I cook a lot and have lots of cooking related
stuff,as well as several hundred cookbooks. One goal of the remodel was to optimize
the space in the kitchen, hence lots of specialized cabinet features.

Cabinets: custom, local cabinetmaker. 30" deep rather than standard 24". Cherry,
natural finish. Full extension drawers and pull outs for all interior shelves.

Counter and window sills: Giallo Santa Cecilia granite, with lots of beautiful garnets

Kindred undermount SS sink, Grohe LadyLux Cafe faucet and soap dispenser, ISE hot
water dispenser

Backsplash: Sonoma Tilemakers, vanilla glaze

Wolf 5 burner cooktop
Venmar hood
Wolf 30" double ovens
Miele G892SC dishwasher
Kept relatively new Amana frig, but had it professionally painted (it used to be white). Left space in cabinets for a side by side when it needs replacing.

Tarkett vinyl flooring: Arizona Sand

The kitchen has been in about a year now and we love it! All the planning and agonizing over choices really paid off.

Ktdid16 - your pictures are no longer available. I'm wanting to see your granite mixed with your cabinets as we're doing a similar mix (I think!) can you update the link?
