Wow! What a change from my previous Ft. Worth kitchen in the pic below…
One of the first things I did was open up the space between the kitchen and den by tearing out a wall and installing this cabinetry.It opens up both rooms and gives me a wonderful bar or serving area.The cool clean Carrera marble counter tops were manufactured, installed and sealed by Natural Stone and Granite in Ft. Worth and I haven’t had a problem yet with staining. The upper cabinets have glass fronts and I filled them with color…Vintage Mexican glass and dinnerware from the 1940s…Handmade baskets from Italy and my collection of old Mexican altar candles.
My designer, Ken Blasingame, had to talk me into the mirrored back splash and now I love it! It expands the space and wipes clean with Windex. Best of all, it was inexpensive. We ordered the tiles from Amazon.I got all my large appliances from Gold Star Appliances in Richardson. I like to buy from local companies because I know they’ll be there if I need any help or explanation. Gold Star has a wonderful selection, great prices and terrific service.I love the functionality of Wolf and Sub Zero. I bought the Wolf double ovens…The Wolf cook top I chose leaves me plenty of space for pots and pans in drawers below…(and I love the red knobs!)
I splurged on the glass front Sub Zero refrigerator and I’ve had tons of compliments on it.Appliances are a big investment and my salesperson, Jim Reynolds, spent hours helping me choose the pieces that would work best for me.This kitchen is half the size of my previous one but it’s the perfect place to have a cup of coffee and scroll through my Facebook news feed!
The kitchen is the first room I’ve pretty much finished. I’m looking forward to sharing pics of the other parts of my new home as they are complete.
