Grout color - Can you give the brand/color of the grout? I know you mentioned its a light gray. Looking for a light gray for our white subway tile backsplash.

I'm sorry, I don't know the name or brand - the best I can describe it is as a mid to light shade of gray

Are those test tubes for spices on the counter? - Where did you get the rack?

Hi there! Yes, I got them at Target, but they only available during the Christmas shopping season, and they're plastic with screw tops, and are filled with spices. At the high end, Dean & DeLuca has a spice collection in test tubes, but they're pricey. ( http://www.deandeluca.com/herbs-and-spices/herb-spice-collections/dean-andamp-deluca-spice-rack.aspx ) . I always liked the idea, but it was more than I wanted to spend, and I preferred to pick out my own spices. I was really excited to find spice test tubes in a wooden countertop rack (see pic) at http://www.tubularspices.com/Countertop_spice_racks.asp . You can also order spices from them by the ounce.

Buying information - Hello, I really love your kitchen. What color are the subway tiles (brand + color), what color is the paint on the cupboards, (satin, gloss?) who made the hardware and finally, what is the color and brand stain on your floor--is it a satin finish? I hope there aren't too many questions--we had a leak in our kitchen and it all has to be re-done in the next few weeks so any help you can give me would be great. Thanks!

Color - What are the wall and cabinet colors? I love that this softer and not the bright white...much warmer and more beautiful! Well done!

Hi there!

Thank you! We love it too. I really didn't want a cold white, but didn't want it to be too warm either, and the Benjamin Moore White Dove (OC-17) was perfect. We ended up using it for all of our trim
work and millwork as well. The wall is white ceramic subway tile with light grey grout.

Which Bertazzoni Heritage range for my kitchen - black or burgundy? - My kitchen will have natural wood base cabinets with a medium stain, carrera marble slab countertops, with lots of carrera marble subway tile on the backsplash. No upper cabinets, just a few open shelves. Going for a Spanish colonial revival look -- I can't decide between the Bertazzoni Heritage in Black, or the Burgundy.

More comments: I live in Mexico, at high altitude. I had the Verona shipped in, but of course there is no warranty support for it here. My installer made some set up errors, which we had to correct (This shouldn't be a problem if you are in the US, and working with someone who knows how to install and set up a dual-fuel range.... the instructions are in English).
In my house in the US, I have a Dacor range and Oven (separate units) and they are easier to use than the Verona. It may just be my imagination, but it seems the Verona takes a long time to come to temperature (difficult to tell without a display). I did buy a hanging thermometer, but it died a fast death, and I have yet to replace it. That said, I have made some terrific Mexican Flan, Oatmeal Cookies and other baked good in the oven -- no problems.

@paulinevillegas - I think the white would look great too. I'd love to see pics - can you post some when you're done? Yes, our perimeter countertops are honed black absolute granite (Kashmir White on the island)

I had honed black absolute granite in my last kitchen. Everything showed, but eventually faded. I always kept a towel on hand to wipe up spills immediately. I got used to it, but I won't use it again.

Thank you all for the kind compliments - I DO love my kitchen! I haven't had any problems with the honed absolute, I find that marks wipe away easily. Wiping the counter dry when cleaning it helps a lot. Mine hasn't scratched, and there are no stains (2 1/2 years later). I like the patina it's acquiring. I didn't seal mine, on the advice of my fabricator. I think some of the problems that people experience happen when it's been sealed.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Heffernan chose the Bertazzoni Heritage 36" gas range, with the hood in matte black, to match the cabinetry on the island. The kitchen backsplash is made up of white 3" x 6" subway tile with gray grout from a local tile store.
