A small galley kitchen in a tight space. Every vertical and horizontal inch was used in some way. The kitchen incorporated pull out pantry storage, pull out pot drawers, open shelving for books and nick knacks and a pull out tray storage unit. The glass panes in the hung cabinets have an applied film with a frosted finish. The film opens up a whole range of applications that glass alone doesn't. All drawers and doors have soft closing hardware.
We have an old 1970's peach/yellow kitchen that is sick to our eyes (we had to live with it for 15 years!).
We are looking towards dark wood, maybe white, cabinets. Light colored granite/solid countertops and a possibly shiny (like stainless steel) backsplash and appliances, is our desire.
I love the cooktop/built-in look for a stove and oven. We know that is expensive... Is there any good quality, under $1,000 stainless steel appliances, besides GE? We don't need a double oven.
We have had some people come in and they said they recommend a microwave-hood.
I would to spend under $10,000 (that is my ABSOLUTE max budget).
We intend to keep the overhang thing (my family practically lives there) (I mean, we're still updating it, of course) and that it has storage.
We do NOT want shelves for the upper cabinets, except for the pantry(the door with the red envelopes and hearts), do you know any good companies? We would change that door for a frame similar to whatever color cabinets we purchase, with frosted glass/etc. for under $150.
Unfortunately, there is no floor under the purple carpet (the rest of the house, however, has terrazzo) and we can't paint over the countertops or cabinets because they are mica (we tried). We would think of a light (if dark cabinets) grey/white/blue tiles [for flooring], or a dark slate type tiles if white cabinets.
Our dream cabinets would be quite plain with little grain and a frame, but no detailed frame(no slopes or extra cuts), just a rectangular lower elevation.
We would definitely get rid of the ceiling box and dome lights (ew) because they would add two feet in the ceiling height (yay!).
This is our before so don't rate it please.
I know this caption is long but please help. Any comment or suggestions will be appreciated. :)
