kitchen counter and cabinets
** Beautiful, but maybe too busy for an entire kitchen? Not liking the edges -- and I know you're doing something thick. Right on.
** Nice color, but does it look too much like actual concrete because of the color?
opposite of what we'd originally planned.... but beautiful!
thick piece of stone on counter and great fixtures throughout
another "opposite" picture
love this countertop!
would white sink (or similar color to cabinets) look better than darker sila?
again the white sinks...
Love this. Too limiting with colors (as opposed to the creme cabinets and black counters)?
love black cabinets with the warm (granite?) countertop. preferred by me over white or near-white because of not wanting the sterile look sometimes created by white. granite is actually a bit dark, as I looked at the other pictures in this series... want something brighter and more striking.
.... but off-white walls
that bar is the coolest thing I've seen. gorgeous.
similar to our existing layout.
Beautiful overall look
Great cabinetry style
backsplash... but would it be too "blah" in the room?
modern look while using similar cabinets to my current ones (these are more streamlined, I realize), but I'm thinking about budget if it would help
No island and instead make a long area for sink and upraised area on other side like this one for bar...? Not a fan of the silver post in the middle of the bar.
Similar thought I had of small desk-type area to the right of fridge. Additional cupboards are nice (to right of fridge; also those above work area), but not necessary if $$ counts... and it usually does!
nice design with sink as island... add bar to the other side with upraised OR flat/extended stone for bar. Oven and stove (I've rethought this... probably fine having it against that wall) placement is good.
Pretty much what I had in mind for "island"/bar and with cabinets all the way around, as it shows. Looks great. This also helps me envision the stove against the wall with layout just as you have it... looks nice.
another good-looking island/bar. Still looking for my hidden coffeemaker & blender cabinet..?
love what's going on in this whole room (though it won't happen in mine). Like long island with bar area and sink. Is this a drawer underneath sink? A couple of large drawers like this would be great for plate sets, etc.
I like this island configuration with sink in front and chairs on other side of the "L" as they are at present (rather than by the sink in this picture). Need the cabinet and counter space that this offers desperately.
Another nice possibility with maybe a chair on the sink side (as in the picture) and another two on the other side?
Nice countertops... carera marble. I think the sample at the house is different. Looks great with the cabinets.
What about this? This is a pretty granite.
Use of darker sink (Silgranite, in our case) to break up sameness of counter color. Metal backsplash!
Love the gray and the thickness of it
pulls UNDER reeded glass cabinets
mixed pulls (horizontal/vertical)
close-up of all horizontal pulls... nice
This is the sheen of the concrete counters -- or how I wanted them to look.
