Houzz was a lifesaver while we were in the middle of remodeling so I wanted to contribute and share where we landed with a materials list in case it’s helpful for anyone else! We took our kitchen down to the studs due to a leak that damaged cabinets and floors and we added a window and reconfigured the kitchen.

Cabinets: Ikea

Installer: https://www.yelp.com/biz/365-fa-lafayette?osq=365+Furniture in Northern CA. Oscar was amazing to work with! He did a bunch of custom stuff for us and also made those cool toe-kick drawers. If you're in the Bay Area or nearby, I would recommend Oscar without reservation. He was super creative in how to solve for anything I was looking to customize, fairly priced, and great to have around, even when we were all home all the time. He did the cabinets, put up window molding, put together a few PAX wardrobes for us, and turned the dresser we bought into a vanity.

Door fronts: Scherr’s Cabinets - Tanner was so patient with me and I loved working with him. I honestly couldn't decide between the door styles so mixed and matched three of them throughout. They did the custom range hood to match the doors and also a custom microwave cabinet with a hinge to hide the microwave.

Electrical Pop-up: We had to do a pop-up b.c. I couldn't figure out another way to add an outlet to the island and be up to code. This is the manufacturer https://www.the-sbox.com/shop/ Purchased from here for maybe $350 but it's not on their site anymore although as of 2/25/21 they still had some in stock and were selling the last of their inventory https://www.kitchenpowerpopups.com/
