fridge and were debating on getting a French door fridge for this reason.
hardware and silver hardware on your cabinets. I like the way silver looks on white cabinets, which I have to. I need to select cabinet hardware and am thinking about going silver even thought my fixtures are bronze. I'm afraid I will regret mixing. Thoughts?

Balinese Influenced Kitchen
of Bali and the client’s own design sense, the new style was dubbed “Julinese” (her name is Julie). In keeping with the Balinese style, bold design elements were chosen – 6” pyramidal columns stained with a deep java finish, support the 3” thick Purple Dunas granite countertops and the custom glass
walls and the window sill are dark grey 3” thick concrete counters. When the folding windows are open, the sill becomes a 15” deep serving bar for outdoor entertaining. For ergonomics – the dishwasher and microwave were raised to 42” and 54” comparatively. Additional Design elements: Cork floors

Pros and cons of kitchen counter tops material.
new home and a very important priority for me is to have an intentionally designed quiet home. Homes that have wood floors and hard walls and lots of glass and stone are way too loud for me. How are quiet homes designed?
powder room and we have chosen a small, rectangular white sink and regular sized toilet. We need to choose tile for the floor and we also want to put tile up the wall behind the sink. The wall colour is BM Balboa Mist, ceiling is Cloud White. What tile chooses would you recommend?
Blue granite, blue cabinets and a blue pantry door all tie together as the blue color was custom-matched to a small piece of the granite. The glass pantry door leads to a walk-in pantry. The hidden fridge is behind a mirrored-panel to create a furniture look. The open shelving next to the integrated
below it and copper pots will hang on it. The kitchen TV is out of the way above the pantry door. A built-in paper towel holder and a dishtowel niche provide convenient kitchen storage. Antique glass door knobs were used on the art-glass pantry door to the walk-in pantry.
Good forum on granite kitchen counters
waste and save money, work with your designer and a supplier to select a slab early and work that slab into your design.

price and ease of care of laminate, but would like a color that maybe looks retro and marble/granite in appearance.
The lamp on counter and chalkboard
kitchen and I like the scales and chalkboard as ideas for decor.
The chalkboard and quote, the black and white.
Love the lamp, scale and chalkboard
Like all white and new hardware but would have to darken the walls like a grey or brown
Laminate Cons: Laminate is prone to scratching, burns and, in some cases
maintenance and easy to clean. Its light weight doesn't require the support of a thick cabinet base. Cons: Laminate is prone to scratching, burns and, in some cases, staining. With wear and moisture exposure, the layers can peel. Because of the raw particle board core, you can't use laminate with undermount
