I've been trying to find an example of a kitchen with a wood island top and stone countertops....and voila! Here is a beautiful one. Love it. Not sure if I can have the range in a wood island, although I'm being assured that can work.
Here's my kitchen question for the day: Have you ever noticed that none of these beautiful kitchens have dish racks? Do you have one? What kind? I think I've tried all kinds at this point - wooden, metal, plastic - and they're all ugly and impossible to keep clean. I have a dishwasher, but I still have a dish rack for those items that are not dishwasher-safe, including my pots and pans. Please don't tell me you're all disciplined enough to wash, dry, and put away your dishes right away. How do you handle this?
A quick update on Renovation 2012: I've met with three other contractors, and I'm now much more confident that we'll be able to find someone that can get the job done within our budget. Now I'm just waiting on those other estimates to roll in so we can make a call and start to move forward.
