We replaced the counters, sink, faucet, backsplash, and cooktop. Kept the cabinets but put some glass in a few and switched out some hardware. Kept the fridge and DW. I considered replacing the Thermador double ovens, but they work great and so now am considering them "vintage".

Kitchen Highlights:
  • Cabinets: existing (original color similar to Benjamin Moore White Dove)
  • Counters: Jet Mist (aka Virginia Mist) honed and enhanced, dupont edge on island and eased edge on perimeter
  • Cooktop: Wolf 36 inch five burner gas (we switched from electric to lp gas)
  • Downdraft: Thermador
  • Backsplash: 3x6 white lanka beveled subway tile, 3x6 breil chair rail tile
  • Faucet: Blanco "Grace", chrome with sidespray
  • Sink: Elkay undermount single bowl, 18 gauge stainless
  • Hardware: Richelieu 3 inch chrome pulls, HD chrome knobs, glass knobs on lower doors but can't remember source
