Kitchen done in 2001, before I found this forum. I'm still hooked as I have another bathroom demo and remodel in the future (gone the pink and gray tile!) so I thought I needed to get in the gallery for a frame of reference.

-Cherry cabinets with natural stain made by local cabinet maker
-laminate counter tops with cherry edging (Alaskan Slate)
-delta faucet
-stainless steel sinks - Elkay
-paint Chili Pepper by Benjamin Moore
-all Kitchen Aid appliances (are 2 yrs old now...won't post model number as things have probably changed), range is gas thru glass, love it!
-flooring is Congoleum Ultima
-knobs are brushed nickel
-stools are seconds from the Holland Barstool Company...uneven stain on the seats, were a steal! Love the stools...big enough for a real fanny, with backs!
-Ceiling is pretty busy with lighting, a/c vents and speakers but love the well lit can always turn them off.

This is our "forever house" and even thou this kitchen remodel has vinyl floors and laminate counters, it certainly didn't stay within any budget that I had. Went for the gusto on the cabinetry, when the post was active on "what did you pay for your cabinets," I think mine was the highest except for someone in the NYC area, but I have about 2x the size of a normal kitchen. DH knows that when I die I want to be "baked and shaked" and that I'll be using that granite that would be my headstone someday on my counters, and the floors will go to cork.

Love THS....have shown the gallery photos to many friends thinking about remodeling, and the forums are fantastic. Keep posting!!!
