Sorry if I'm throwing all these questions at once, but I'm building a house that has a similar style to yours and I am very interested in your materials. This is the first time for me by the way. I haven't started but am looking around right now.
I guess my biggest question is for the refrigerator. How do custom paneled refrigerators get made/built? I went on Thermador's site and you can select 'custom paneled. So do you just order the fridge without the stainless steel and add the panel that you bought from your cabinetry manuacture? How is it added onto the fridge? My concern is if the fridge will overheat? I saw many people do this but I want to make sure. How much is the $ for the Thermador and the the panels. Do we just tell the cabinet manfacturer the sizes of it?
How much was the cost of the your kitchen? Everything, like the applicances too. I read in your questions that your cabinets are from Ikea? How is the quality of it, I'm aware Ikea isn't top notch, but is it still good quality? Can you see anything that may make it look ... 'cheap'?
Also with the island , the grey side, is the same material as the backsplash? It's thicker then the backsplash though, right? If not, then how is it holding up?
Overall I LOVE your kitchen! Great job (:
Thanks

Hi disgnr,

Wow! That's a lot of questions but i'll try my best to answer them all. If i miss anything please let me know.

If you're ordering a thermador or a 'built-in' in general, you're given the choice of a 'panel ready'. That's the term i'm familiar with and that is what we specified. The LG House fridge was 36" w x 7' h and IKEA sells panels this size which can be used for this purpose. So order the 'custom panel' or 'panel ready' option for the fridge and have the same cabinetry applied to the front (top+bottom). This requires a lot of skill so make sure you hire someone who knows how to do this. The fridge doesn't overheat. For pricing visit Thermador and IKEA websites to confirm. All other appliances were by Bosch www.bosch-home.ca/ (Wall Oven, D/W, Cooktop). The fridge may be anywhere from $8-10K and the high-gloss panels $125+

I can't recall all the prices but the kitchen cabinetry material only (i.e. door fronts, cabinets, hardware, pulls, legs, plinths, panels etc.) was approx. $12-13K (CAD).

IKEA is good quality. Only a Kitchen cabinet maker or other Kitchen suppliers would tell you otherwise. Sure there may be better quality out there but you can't beat IKEA's prices. And IKEA certainly doesn't look 'cheap'. This kitchen here proves it.

The cover panels on the island are the same as the back-splash (thickness was either 1/2" or 5/8"). Everything's holding up extremely well...

Thanks for your comments and your interest in the LG House.

Hi,
This is a great kitchen; and I love that it was mostly sourced from IKEA! I am looking to create a similar kitchen design (still debating on the grey though) and have a question about your waterfall island.

Is the waterfall made from the same material as the counter top (quartz)? I love the look, but adding a waterfall will greatly increase the cost of my island. Do you think I could get away with using the gloss white panels to create the waterfall and use the quartz as the counter top?

Thanks!

That's exactly what we did here (re: waterfall). We used the same high-gloss material to create that look.
