Our kitchen is traditional with cherry cabinets, black countertops, white appliances
(small children, no finger prints!) and porcelain tile.

What I love:
~Trash compactor (never had one before).
~Tilt out sink tray.
~Soap dispenser.
~Air switch for the garbage disposal (under the sink).
~Full extension drawers.
~9" "cookie sheet" cabinet by the range.
~Blackstar Granite countertops by Wilsonart. The color and texture is wonderful and it's very easy to keep looking nice (finger prints etc.).

What I would have done differently:
~Purchased a range that didn't have a glass top. My pans slide around too much.
~Raised the microwave or moved it. It seems a bit close to the range.
~The 21" trash bin cabinet would pull out with the door rather than having to open
the door and then pull the bins out on a glider. The gliding system hits the door and
leaves marks (added felt recently and this has helped).
