Link to kitchen photos:

  • Cabinets - local cabinet maker.
    Hardware - knobs from Home Depot. Pulls from Restoration Hardware.
  • Countertop - Soapstone from Expo. LOVE it. My favorite thing.
  • Backsplash: Dalite tile from Expl.
  • Range - Jenn Aire dual fuel with 2 ovens (love the 2 ovens, but it was a pain to install as we had to have a new outlet run and have the gas moved as it was in the wrong place per Jenn Aire's instructions).
  • Micro - Jenn Aire - we use it to vent outside and this was another pain as the microwave vent was about 2 inches off from the vent in the ceiling, but were able to customize some sheet metal).
  • Dishwasher - Jenn Aire. OK, I love the look of it, but we had a couple problems with this. We had to have plumbing moved to accomodate it. A plumbing expense I wasn't ready for. And then it was bent (sideways) and so a couple strips got damaged but then fixed). All is well now.
  • Fridge - LG Cabinet Depth French Door. Like the look of it, but I dropped one of my tupperware containers on the top of the door and bent it a little. They don't make appliances like they used to!!
  • Sink - Blanco stainless.
    Faucet - Brizo. Love the look of it, but the handle on the right turn the wrong way (perhaps this is a European design).

dmank, your kitchen is beautiful. I like the grout color you chose on the backsplash. Would you mind sharing the brand name and color?
