  • Cabinets are IKEA Askerum - european ash with a gray stain.
  • Cabinet pulls - stainless steel bar pulls are a mix of Siro, Omnia, Sukutsune choosing by the lengths we needed. Also have some Atlas Homeware's Modernist pulls for the tall uppers.
  • Counters - Blue Night Granite (basically a black granite with cobalt blue confetti-like irridescent inclusions). We have 30" deep counters over the oven to fit that recess defined by the bumpout in the back of the room. The sink side got the regular 25.5" deep counters as defined by the doorway. 30" counters rock - sort of wish I'd moved the doorway now.
  • Backsplash - two. On the oven and fridge side, rift cut white oak with 5 or 6 coats of varnish (or sealer or something duly painful to apply). This lives behind the fridge and beneath the top shelf too.
    On the sink and stove wall, plate glass backsplash from GlasskoteUSA. This is tempered sheet glass - green glass not the clear starfire.
  • Stove, oven, dishwasher - Bosch.
  • Hood - Gaggenau.
  • Fridge - pre-remodel and don't recall manufacturer. It works and doesn't look broken down so it stayed.
  • Paint - Halfway mix of Restoration Hardware Silver Sage reduced by half with white paint.
  • Stools - Lem from Design Within Reach.
  • Room is 10.5x 13.5 + 8 x 5.5.
  • Floor is 12" Italian through-body porcelain tile. Its carrara marble-like but porcelain - our floor joists were rated for tile but not for stone else we were going to get Vermont slate.
  • French door - Loewen (love this door!).

We haven't found counter stools yet, but there's a 12" overhang in the front of the island. It's supported by 3/8" steel bars, and the two center panels are actually doors to a cabinet. The island is roughly 5' x 8'.

Basically, before the project, this was two rooms, with a wall that lined up where the middle of the hood/range is. Left was the dining room, and the kitchen to the right.

The wall cabs are 13" deep.
The glass-front cabinets house our "company" dishes and various glassware. The 36" wide drawer bases below have everyday dishes, nice flatware, and various trays/bowls/baking dishes.
To the left of the range is a cabinet w/ tray dividers and a 4-drawer stack. Pot and pan drawers (30", 2-drawer stack) are to the right of the range.

The big cab to the L of the fridge has pullout trays. We have another pantry in the laundry room (outside the french door in the other photos), and we haven't worked out what to put in each yet. Drawers to the L of fridge have everyday flatware, punkin gear, and overflow pots/pans. Drawers under microwave have bags/wraps, plastic ware, and colanders/mixing bowls. Above the MW are everyday glassware and misc stuff.

Next is the sink/faucet/DW. Left of the sink (not pictured) are two cabs, one w/ a Rev-a-shelf trash pullout, and the other a skinny one for cutting boards w/ knives in a drawer above.
