This is the kitchen design proposed by a cabinet company whose product we did not choose, but it gives you the idea. The new refrigerator is cabinet depth, so it won’t stick out into the room the way this one does.
This is the final floorplan, below, but I just noticed that the window measurements are off. Way off. It won’t affect the design, but it worried me that the cabinet design might have similar measurement flaws, so I went over them and they seem ok.
This is what they’ll look like.
Nice, simple, clean lines, painted an off-white. Why is it that the simpler the lines, the more it costs?
The off-white tile below is the field tile, the green is the trim color. The countertop will not be crackle, only the backsplash.
The tile sample with all of the feature tiles, above, will have a much lighter background, the same as the off-white field tile. The V-cap and quarter-round trim around the sink will be in the green. We will only use a few of the feature pieces for the backsplash: a honeybee, a head of wheat, an ear of corn, berries, a clump of chives, an artichoke, a little mural above the stove made up of some of the pieces.
It sounds busy, but won’t be. There’s a lot of backsplash, and these will be spread around the room.
The general contractor’s bid came back, and was reasonable, but will hit my budget target almost on the nose, so there’s not much left for goodies.
Wait, I already spent the goodies money on goodies! Never mind.
