We took down two walls and more than doubled our outdated 90's kitchen. We did the design ourselves, but hired pros to execute our design. We love the result! Highlights: custom cabinetry gray lowers and white uppers, quartz countertops, Lyra from Silestone, white subway tile, new built in pantry with frosted 4-panel doors, double farm sink from Franke, new Dacor range and Kobe hood, 8x3' island with bookcase end, wire pull-out racks for storage, and microwave hidden on the back side, new inset lighting, under cabinet lighting, and pendants from Kichler lighting (all on dimmers), built in desk with hidden pull out printer cabinet, keyboard tray, and tower storage. Also, new electrical with USB ports on the island and desk. Last but not least, we went with high grade rustic laminate flooring from Mannington; Acadia, Firewood. We have a large dog, and this flooring is tough and hides the dirt! The wall color is Penthouse from Benjamin Moore. It was a fun process. I got most of my ideas from Houzz.
