They will look similar to this, only without the fancy glass doors on the left.
I've scanned in the plan from our kitchen designer, these are a little rough but you get the idea. We are not changing the layout of the kitchen. Here is the sink wall:
Don't mind the floating sink, that is supposed to be a regular undermount stainless sink, not sure why it's like that! The cabinet to the right of the dishwasher is a waste bin cabinet with two large cans behind a tall single door. Range wall with huge cookware drawers:
The refrigerator wall will have the biggest changes, with a tall broom closet on the left of the frig, and the microwave in a cabinet under the counter. There is a panel enclosing the right side of the frig, that is not pictured. The counter on this wall will be 42 inches to make using the microwave easier and make it more like a bar height. That micro cabinet is seriously not to scale, the drawer will be a nice big 15" high one and the microwave will fit perfectly in the upper cabinet.
All the base cabinets (except the sink base) are drawers or roller pullouts behind doors. I wanted lots of places to put heavy cookware, so I'm thrilled with this setup! The space above the microwave will be open shelves that I have yet to dream up. I'm might try to find some cool reclaimed wood rather than match them to the cabinets. Maybe rustic like this:
Or more modern with a natural wood tone.
I also love this DIY pot rack shelving, how cool!
I've made some simple shelves for the art room, so I'm hoping to find some thicker wood to do something similar in the kitchen.
I can't wait to have all our dishes out in the open, we literally go through all our bowls and plates over the span of a couple days, so they will have no time to get dusty, and they are already white so they will look right at home.
Our cabinet cost includes: full-overlay doors, dovetail drawers, full extension drawers and roller trays, softclose drawers, crown molding, light rail molding, toe kick, shoe molding, and shaker side panels for refrigerator surround.
Total: $10,238.00 ($8,438 for cabinets and $1800 for installation)
Considering the installation involves lots of trim and should take the professionals about 3 days, I'm more than willing to pay for it! This total price is pretty much what Lowes wanted for installation of some Kraftmaid cabinets, and I like that we're going with a smaller family-owned cabinet maker instead. One thing down, about a million to go.....
