Hey Aubry Tyczka Your kitchen sounds like it functions really well and I like the rustic look. Honestly I don't think a kitchen sink could be to big in my experience and the commercial faucet works for me. I give my dog a bath in mine and wash pretty much everything that fits. After all who wants to bend over a bath tub if it fits in the sink. Function really comes first for many home owners and of course we want it to look great too. I love that you recycled the left over tile by using it in your remodel. Sounds like hubby is very versatile with his tools. :)

I really like the sink in the last kitchen. The way that they incorporated the 50's coloring with a earlier styled porcelain sink. They way it turned out looks great, even with the limited space available.

This house reminds me of a great place for a young couple to live. It's almost like a upscale urban studio apartment. I really like the choice of wood flooring, is that cherry?

I would add something to item number 6 - Meet the pros at your home. You should go to their place of business as well. For one thing, fraud is not uncommon. If a company cannot show a legitimate looking place of business, you probably shouldn't give them your money. Also, you should look to see how neat and organized they are. How they treat their workplace is a reflection of how they will treat your home.

Thanks for asking!
The color is called Ornamental White. I found it at Stoneworks of Augusta (GA) and they got it through a supplier in The Charlotte, NC area. I never saw that color at any of the other granite shops in our area. It was the cheapest of the 3 colors I considered and I thought it was the best for my setting. Our house is rather modest by today's standards (2000 sq ft brick ranch) and I am very pleased with our remodel--the right balance of function, beauty, and cost.

Honestly, I think it's just semantics...an attempt to transition one phrase into the other. After reading the houzz article describing 'work zones', it could just as easily describe my 'work triangle' kitchen. I Dishwasher & trash next to sink, check. Landing areas next to major appliances: check. Large island to keep guests a bay: check.....

I live in a small town filled with older homes. I know few people who upgrade their kitchens to look like the glam-fabulous photos here on houzz. Most people I know don't ever get around to kitchen remodeling and just make do with the old.

Another thing: I read that kitchens have come a long way because all the architects used to be all men and they seldom spent time in a kitchen, therefore kitchens weren't 'user friendly'. Once women came on to the scene, their input helped kitchens evolve into rooms that function well and are family gathering places.

I don't have time to read all the other comments, so maybe someone has already said this, but I think it's a good idea to have the sink and the cooktop/range on the same run of cabinets, so that they are not separated by a walkway. This makes prep and cleanup easier and safer, since no one can walk between the chef and the sink while the chef is trying to drain pasta.

I found a 50's burled walnut art deco bedroom suite that had been painted black and gold leafed! The vanity with large round mirror and curved drawer fronts on all pieces made me look. Once it was stripped and refinished it was stunning.
