  • Cabinets: locally made but used IKEA glass Rubrik fronts on the island and the uppers.
  • Countertops: white Carrera marble countertops
  • Backsplash: a local sheet metal fabricator cut the backsplash
  • Appliances: I saved lots of money on appliances by picking up floor items: Fisher Paykel double ovens, Miele six-burner gas cooktop, Ventahood. I already had a Miele dishwasher (the best!) and though I would like a French door refrigerator, I'm keeping the much-repaired GE until it quits.
  • Sink: Ticor
  • Faucet: Grohe (splurge), Rohl dispenser with Never MT(the NeverMT is not a splurge!)
  • Utensil holders, knife rack and trivets: IKEA
  • Canisters: from
  • Paint: wall color is Benjamin Moore Aura Affinity #500.

This transformation is awesome. Especially the bold modern touches and increasing the counter space so majorly. I love the quaint hominess of your original kitchen but can see that the lack of counter space gets constraining.
