Warm Contemporary Kitchen with IKEA Cabinets

  • Cabinets: Ikea Tidaholm oak in black/brown, and Adel birch in medium brown (in pantry area and planning peninsula). Shaker doors. I chose IKEA because I love their organization systems and their Blum tandembox drawers and glides. I assembled all of the cabinets myself and changed the edgebanding to match the door/drawer fronts. I was kind of excited to find "Made in Italy" stickers on all the Tidaholm doors. My GC's carpenter installed the cabinets. All drawers are full extension with soft close.
  • Countertop: Madura Gold granite
  • Backsplash: Jeffrey Court's Fire and Ice, enhanced, kashmir grout
  • Cabinet Hardware: Hickory Hardware pulls
  • Range: Bluestar 36" RNB 6-burner with island trim. The cabinet run on the range wall is pulled out 3 inches. I have a 4" strip of granite behind the range.
  • Hood: Futuro Futuro 48" plane (980 cfm) venting through a 6" pipe. Installed 28 3/4in above the range.
  • Ovens: GE Monogram Advantium over ZET
  • Dishwasher: Bosch Integra 800 series
  • Refrigerator: Samsung French door RFG297. We pulled out surrounding cabs to make the fridge look built-in.
  • "Kid fridge" 24" LG LRBP1031 in Titanium-- love it! Holds the kids' yogurts, drinks, fruit, ice cream, frozen baked goods, ice packs-- and keeps the kids out of my way. In the same footprint as refrigerator drawers, I got twice the space at half the price. Between the Samsung and the LG, I have almost 40 cu. ft. of refrigerator/freezer space.
  • Prep Sink Disposal: compact Badger disposal, the smallest I could find (we are on septic, so it is just used for the odds and ends I don't scoop out of the sink)."
  • Faucets: Grohe K4 (prep sink) and Alira (main sink)
  • Tapmaster at main sink
  • Soap dispensers from Never MT web site
  • Sinks: Zero radius, 15 gauge stainless from Ebay-- 30" at main sink and 23" at prep sink
  • Table: Oak from reclaimed antique floor joists, from Ebay (barnseeker.com)
  • Chairs: Bonded leather from Overstock-- love them
  • Floors: Red oak, Refinished and stained Minwax golden oak, 3 coats of oil-based poly
  • Lighting: Grundtal lights under the cabinets. I used 3 on an 80" section of horizontal cabs.
I kept my old kitchen light fixture and ceiling fixture. I'm still planning on adding a couple of puck lights to the shelf behind the hood-- I have outlets at the tops of the high cabs, with a switch next to the range.
