what if we - the kitchen eclectic-kitchen

what if we - the kitchen

A kitchen that combines the traditional warmth of wood, raised panel, beaded inset cabinets with stainless steel appliances and glass tiles. The open, galley kitchen layout keeps everything close at hand while enabling the cook and dishwasher to be a part of all the action.

This kitchen was published in Trends magazine.

Vanessa Brunner added this to 23 Inspiring Real-Life Kitchens
20. Bud_dietrich's blend of modern and traditional. Bud_dietrich lives in a 1930s French Country style home. "We wanted our kitchen to be a bridge between this older, more traditional style, and a sleeker and more modern appearance," he says. His kitchen pays tribute to the traditional with clear stained cabinetry and a beaded inset in glazed alder, while the stainless steel appliances and an Ann Sacks glass tile backsplash pay tribute to the modern.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Kitchen Remodel Costs: 3 Budgets, 3 Kitchens
The Mid- to Upper-Range Kitchen RemodelWhat if the existing kitchen layout doesn't work? Maybe you want more space because you really love to bake and want a place to roll and cut out all those holiday cookies. Or a a kitchen island is something you've always wanted so that friends and family can sit nearby as you display your culinary skills.A $40,000 to $75,000 kitchen remodel might include:1. A total rework of the space. Everything, including the kitchen sink, may need to be moved, which means new plumbing, electrical, air ducts and so on. 2. Professional-style appliances. From the 48-inch built-in stainless steel refrigerator to the 48-inch cooktop with grille and griddle to the 30-inch double convection ovens, this kitchen is all about creating wonderful meals.3. Custom island. And if you want an island, why not make it like some large piece of furniture with legs and beadboard? It's a perfect place for the kids to sit and do homework while the evening meal is being prepared.

The kitchen and dining room with the wall removed. Move the range and add double oven. Kitchen table would go in window nook and island would be twice as big with more seating and second (smaller) sink.
