I really like the idea of zones. So we have a cleaning zone, baking, prep and cooking zones.

One word: Spectacular!
I'm in the process of picking out cabinets and colors.
Did you choose a bright white, or an off white? Same question for the subway tiles.
I also noticed that your base cabinet lazy susan is the push door not the hinge door. I asked our KD to get me that style, as I find it more convenient.
Would love to know how the upkeep is on the cabinets and counter.
My KD said I'd be a "slave to it" if I went with white. She's steering me to off white with a light brown glaze and Portofinio Classico granite. Would love your thoughts. Cheryl in Mass.
