Kitchen is DONE!

Finally, we are finished –mostly. Have some touching up to do, but these will likely not be apparent in the photos. We will probably change out the light fixture over the eating peninsula (that is a bit too large) for a smaller single light pendant.  The cabinets are cherry with a ‘frost’ finish that is not quite a white wash. I’m told they will darken a bit with age.

Spindle and spoke shelf over the window to display my collection of tea pots. The style came from the barn red plate rack that is on the wall next to the pantry door that has a spindle rail on it. The pantry door is also painted the same barn red. Are you sensing a theme here? LOL

This is clearly a galley kitchen. This is the sink side. There's just the two of us most of the time and we enjoy intimate meals at the peninsula.

This is clearly a galley kitchen. This is the sink side. There’s just the two of us most of the time and we enjoy intimate meals at the peninsula. The dishwasher is a Bosch. It is so quiet you have to try to hear it when it’s running! It has a red light that shows on the floor to let you know. There is a third rack on top for silverware that allows for removal of the silverware rack on the bottom to gain extra space. The sink is Vigo. Just purchased a rack (you can’t see here) for the bottom to drain stuff and keep the bottom from getting scratched so easily. The faucet is Delta Touch 2 O. I’m spoiled now –wouldn’t have any other kind.  The cabinets are cherry with a beadboard door style made by DeWils.

The range side of the galley. Loving the LG gas double oven range. There's nothing I can't cook on this thing. It contains the double ovens and all of the multiple BTU high-powered burners I had in my last kitchen that were in separate appliances and much more costly. This is a real space and money saver. Plus it's easier to clean! The microhood is also wonderful. It has a vent that extends in the bottom to gain more coverage over the burners.

    • Thanks Tracy! If you are talking about the big wide drawers next to the range, it didn’t happen without some issues. It used to be that this manufacturer would only make drawers up to 36″ wide (which is typical). Now they make them up to 60″ wide. My cabinet guy had to put in some steel reinforcement along the top of the cabinet because it was bowing. It works perfectly now. So happy to have a very long working relationship with this contractor who has consistently done a wonderful job for me on other projects as well.
