Hi, love your kitchen! Am about to start my own renovation and am considering 2 inch countertops all the way around. Are you happy that you did the thicker CT's?

ooh, thanks for posting! i've chosen caesarstone's raven and it's great to see an IRL picture. have you liked the mitered edges for the island? (is that 5cm?) how thick are your perimeter countertops?

Wow!! I love too. Custom cabinets are a beautiful centerpiece for any kitchen renovation. Adding brand new cabinets immediately updates the room and brings to it a new sense of style and elegance.

Beautiful kitchen. Like so many, I am designing my kitchen. At the detail planning stage. How do you like the height of the microwave? Wish it was lower? If I lower it a few in., may look dorky. (want builti-in)Or could put a cupboard below and I lose the landing area for stirring. Any comments?

I love your kitchen. Your former layout is almost identical to mine, so it's nice to see how you changed the layout in the remodel. It gives me courage to do something similar. You did a great job!
