Kitchen Design

We’ve chosen to modify the Kitchen Design by changing the floorplan and layout of the standard Merrick kitchen design by extending the island to 117″ x 48″ and adding a pantry cabinet past the ovens.  And, we swapped a standard refrigerator out for a 42″ built-in.

The floor plan is found in an earlier post:  here.

Kitchen Materials

Our kitchen design includes a large island.  The kitchen island and perimeter cabinets will be Mocha Black.  The Island Countertop material is Alpine White Granite while the perimeter counters are London Grey Quartz (Caesarstone).

Appliances

Our boldest appliance decision has been to forgo a microwave oven.  And since making this decision, we’ve been noticing how often we use our current one.

We have chosen KitchenAid branded dishwasher, refrigerator and convection double ovens.  For the gas cooktop, we have selected a Thermador.
