What is the size of these tiles? I think we need larger than 2x6 or 3x6 to do the design in the center, is that right?

Stamford marble and tile
Which ever you like. The chair rail is thicker and more formal looking, generally. The liner is thinner and more stream lined and contemporary or casual in feel. There aren't any "rules".

Don't use marble in kitchen, it stains.

Coffee pot question - Where do people put the coffee pot? I see these stunning kitchens, but no coffee area/station. Seems hard to pull in and out of cupboard daily. Any ideas? I think my next reno I will put a coffee station in my bedroom or bathroom. Seems nice to start the day with it while I get ready. What do other people do?

The new pod machines would work well in a bath or closet.

Looks like Calcutta to me. Some beige tones in Calcutta, statuary is all gray and white, it's a stunning room

How close is the stove to the corner? Is there a cabinet next to it, or just a filler. And does the drawer to the right open? It looks like it would hit the side of the stove. I'd like to do this too...please help!

In the photo it appears to be very close, but in fact there is enough clearance for the drawer to open.

These were chosen by our client. We do not have the specs on those.

Hi, Do you mind having the stove so close to the corner? Ours will be this close too, but others are saying this will be a problem. We don't have much space and shifting the corner away makes for an even smaller DR. Any thoughts appreciated! karen

For a small space this is a practical solution.

In the past, the dead corner on the right could have been problematic - but these days there are lots of elegant solutions to accessing that space.

Check out the Hafele magic corner http://www.hafele.com/us/. They have a rectangular one and a kidney-shaped one. Here's the former that that Bill Fry installed:

What are the best options for a stove backsplash?

There are several options, depending on your kitchen, and how much space you have between your stove and the hood, can help you decide.

You can use tile (like shown above) with a patterned insert. You can continue your countertop surface up the back wall - such as granite or marble. For a more industrial feel you could use stainless steel. Many people enjoy using decorative mosaics and even hammered tin can be used.

Here is an idea book that will give you more ideas.

We like tile for a stove backsplash, easy to clean and beautiful to look at.

Can someone tell me what colour the cabinets are painted? It's a particularly nice shade of white. Are the countertops Marble or Corian look-alike?

it could be dove white (white dove?) by Benjamin Moore. I just ordered cabinets for my kitchen, and said I wanted white, but not a stark white, more like a milky creamy white, and the designer immediately suggested that color.

This kitchen was completed several years ago. I would look for up to date specs for cabinet hardware.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Design Details: Herringbone Around the Home
Subway tiles are everywhere these days—not that I'm complaining. The simple white style is helpful in myriad applications. But why not mix it up in an unexpected pattern?
Debbie Snider added this to Kitchen Design: A Picture Frame for Your Backsplash
One of my favorite designs is subway tile paired with a framed herringbone feature. The effect is subtle and elegant.
Christine Tusher added this to A Cook’s 6 Tips for Buying Kitchen Appliances
2. What’s a good guideline for BTUs?This is another case where more is not necessarily better. Unlike restaurant chefs, who require a lot of power on every burner for plenty of high-heat cooking, you’re more likely to want a wide variety of heat options for cooking all the different components of your meal.
