I’m so happy to finally be able to post photos of the finished kitchen peninsula.
It really looks great and is so functional.
This is Charlie’s realm and it was designed with him in mind. First it has an extra large sink which overlooks the rest of the downstairs rooms. Charlie had a habit of secluding himself in the kitchen when we had guests to clean up the dishes. Now he can do dishes and chat with folks at the same time.
Second, it’s an upscale coffee bar loosely styled after the caffe bars in Italy.
The peninsula houses a 3-drawer cabinet, an undercounter refrigerator, a 30-inch wide, 10-inch deep undercounter farmhouse sink, and a dishwasher.
Cabinets: Shiloh Cabinetry, Homestead maple inset doors in Silas with Graphite Highlight
Knobs: Berenson weathered nickel knobs and cup pulls ordered from ATG Stores
Lighting: Bell pendants from Pottery Barn
Counter tops: Stainless steel from Ample Sheet Metal
Sink and faucets: Krauss sink and faucets from Faucet Direct
Refrigerator: Avanti undercounter refrigerator at Pacific Sales in Best Buy stores
Tile: Royal Grey Honed Limestone, Best Tile
Paint: Benjamin Moore Waterbury Cream HC-31
I’m not sure I believed it would ever come to this. I wouldn’t be surprised if the dishwasher is running for the next two weeks straight.
When you have guests do you leave them on their own? Or set aside your priorities until they’re gone?
