  • Cabinets: white Shaker style, brushed nickel pulls - locally made. The cabinet guys also did the custom woodwork to match our existing woodwork in our older home.
  • Countertops: Bianco Antico granite (so happy to join this club!! I'm in love. I see new colors and patterns each day)
  • Sinks: ProFlo stainless 30" and a smaller prep sink from ebay
  • Faucets: Price Pfister models "Hanover" and "Marielle"
  • Appliances:
    • LG refrigerator
    • LG DW
    • Maytag Gemini range (This is working great so far! Five burners and two ovens...and gas is baking evenly, which I worried about after I bought them. I am the queen of buyer's remorse....but all is well)
    • GE Profile MW/Convection oven (again, I wanted a third baking space. It works beautifully. We didn't have room to do a separate set of double ovens, hood and MW drawer)
  • Paint:
    • Wall paint: BM Lenape Trail (It looks really pumpkin-y on the photos, but is actually a russet/terracotta).
    • Cabinet paint: custom white-white to match BM Simply White. But the fellows at Benjamin Moore actually said to our painter, "This is the whitest white we've ever matched."
  • Flooring: Montado Platinum series Cork, "Safron"
  • Lights:
    • Pendants, over-the-sink and TV area lights are all the "schoolhouse" collection from DVI of Canada, purchased locally and shipped.
    • Breakfast nook light: Rejuvenation Hardware
  • Extras:
    Appliance lift, Blumotion hinges, full-extension sliding drawers, built-in pantry behind fridge, "Butler's pantry" area next to mixer lift, sliding rollout shelves under main sink and over fridge, Never MT, tip-out under main sink, tray slot and separate cutting board slot on island, trash pullout

Background Info:
We planned for this remodel of our 1930 kitchen for eight months, through several revisions and much angst. After two and a half months, we're finally done!
