Link to kitchen photos:

  • Cabinets: Existed box made of 1/2" plywood. Doors & 2 new cabinets were custom built with the same 1/2" plywood. Cabinets were sanded and repainted with a satin base coat and topped with a semi-gloss glazed lighter color to achieve the texturized gold look. All antique brass hardwares for the cabinets were replaced (from Home Depot). 3 of 24" length GE Premium undercabinet lights were added. Plexiglass sheets added to bottom portion of base cabinets to serve as wheelchair bumpers =o). These were attached by screws for easy replacement.
  • Countertop: Granite: 3 cm thick, from Brazil, color is Tobacco Wave.
  • Backsplash: Italian porcelain tiles from Master Tile, 4"x4", color terracotta. Grout color: buck wheat.
  • Kitchen sink: Ticor brushed SS 16 gauge undermounted, 2 bowls with grids
  • Bar sink: No brand name, brushed SS 18 gauge undermounted
  • Kitchen & Bar Faucets: No brand name, solid brass built with brushed nickel finish
  • Appliances remained the same:
    Maytag double oven and dishwasher (White)

    Frigidaire 32" coil cooktop (SS)
    Hood vent (no clue but looks like just a standard)
  • Existing floor: Saltillo tiles
  • Wall: Wallpaper remained good intact for over 30 yrs., there was no need to be removed. The wall was texturized and painted over.
