  1. Your kitchen looks great, what did you use on the floors? You said it’s a
    laminate? Brand/style? It doesnt look like a laminate, does it look so real
    in person?

  2. @androy23 Greetings! Check out HomeLegend . com – navigate to ‘products’
    then to laminate flooring. In this kitchen space is the piano finished
    pecan natural. It’s actually a decent product and does look quite nice in
    person. Prior to installation, all pieces/material was ‘pre-sorted’ in an
    effort to avoid repetition and ‘map out’ a realistic look. It also helped
    that we purchased a couple extra boxes to have more control over pattern.
    Should still be available @ Home Depot (via special order).

  3. those are wood countertops from ikea….butcherblock?….if so i saw the L
    shape in the corner is not cut at an angle at the corner but just butted up
    to each other …it looks fine to me but is this normal because i might do
    it myself and was afraid to cut that angle which was influencing my doin

  4. @candided Hello – yes they are butcher block from IKEA. It is more common
    to have the 45 degree cut/angle @ the corner. It does take however about
    +25 inches or so more material to do it that way. The other challenge is
    cutting that angle in a solid oak top @ 1.25″ thick. It takes very exacting
    precision to make the seam tight. I can assure you, it’s not as easy as one
    might think. For these reasons, the customer chose this route. For the
    money, it doesn’t look to bad even if w/ the but joint.

  5. WOW! What a beautiful kitchen….We just bought a home and plan to remodel
    the kitchen pretty soon. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  6. considering the room you did an excellent job with the placement and that
    wall suspended cabinet to make room for the forced air vent and hanging off
    the fridge/ cabinet side panel is smart thinking! and like you said is a
    good tie in and makes the kitchen feel like it has additional space/
    amenities. Good Job!
