    I agree with your hubby. I have lived without TV for nearly nine years now and I enjoy life more. I don' t need or miss the drama and negativity that is almost constant on TV. I also prefer to spend time during meals actually having conversations with my family. Pick up a hand craft and work on it while waiting for the water to boil or put a stationary bike in your kitchen, you'll get two things done at once!

    iPad / tablet / laptop is a great alternative to a TV - it can be moved around according to what space you're not actively using for prep/cooking, and it's very convenient for recipe lookup, or Internet radio in the background.

    It's a VERY good idea to have a screen protector, to guard against water splashes and airborne grease. Better yet, a water-resistant case - Lifeproof makes a good one.

    I love the Faucet/sink. I want to put in my center kitchen Island but worried is too big for the space...and also wondering which brand Kraus or Vigo?

    This faucet is neither brand. I am not familiar with the brands you are mentioning. If you are worried that you will find it too big, maybe you should trust your intuition.

    Thank you for your detailed observation. Small details combined with a thoughtful approach and great craftsmanship have made this kitchen one of my favorites from the last 40 years. Our client was a joy to work with. If I can answer any other questions or be of any other help to you in the future, please contact my office.

    Beautiful cabinets. We did a kitchen remodel with white oak, clear finish, no stain. Within a couple of years the cabinets yellowed terribly. If I refinish the cabinets, how do I avoid the yellowing? Thank you.

    The dishwasher is from Asko. We were gratified to receive first place in Kitchen Design by ASID for this project. The entire free standing house is just over 800 square feet.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sheridan Interiors, Kitchens and Baths added this to Small Luxuries: Wine Refrigerators Offer Handy StorageOct 14, 2013

Single-zone refrigeration will work well if you plan to chill just one type of wine. The temperature in a single-zone cooler will vary from the top to the bottom — the larger the refrigerator, the more the temperature will vary. If budget and space are your main concerns, a single-zone refrigerator is your best bet. Plan to store white wines at the bottom, where it's cooler, and red wines at the top. But be aware that temperature variation is not the same from one cooler to the next.

Rachel Grace added this to Kitchen Sinks: Stainless Steel Shines for Affordability and StrengthFeb 10, 2013

Advantages: Stainless steel sinks come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, and can be made very large and deep. Depending on the gauge, stainless steel's durability can stand the test of time. In fact, hot pots and pans can be loaded directly into a stainless steel kitchen sink without damaging its surface. Fragile dishes are also less likely to break when dropped into a stainless steel sink, since it's not as hard as stone. Aesthetically, these sinks allow for cohesiveness in finishes, since so many modern appliances are stainless steel.

Becky Harris added this to Fine Thing: A Wine Fridge Right Where You Want ItDec 1, 2011

Let's start off simply: You can incorporate a smaller wine refrigerator by sacrificing one lower cabinet.

KitchenLab | Rebekah Zaveloff Interiors added this to Kitchen Layouts: Island or a Peninsula?Feb 21, 2011

Here you can really see how much space is gained by connecting this peninsula to the wall. If this were an island with circulation on both sides, that wine refrigerator would have to go, plus some. The top, without any counter space on the right of the sink, would be too small to for a comfortable workspace.
