1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    inorite? Anyway, I got my wife to email me a few pics so that there would be light.
    There are some oddities, since when we bought the place it was three rooms with two different window styles and heights, but it can take a beating, and has stayed in really good shape for the length of time we have had it, and the amount we eat at home.

    Two ovens in the range and a new steam oven [​IMG]. Anybody building a new kitchen should really consider one of these. For fish they are just incredible. Yeah, not much sitting around. I guess just a used bottle of corn oil from frying something over the weekend.

    gdl - interesting what you did with the tiled hood vent. It's something you see in less new kitchens, where it can look kind of tired. But in your kitchen I think it works really well.

    Reminded me of this (where the kitchen definitely needs a re-do):

    Thanks zjp. I can't take credit for anything - we just signed on the line. Previous owners did a good job with the kitchen and we didn't change anything, we just plugged our toaster. The one thing that is a bit useless is that there is a large plate-warmer drawer in the island - and I honestly cannot imagine how many times a year one uses a plate-warmer. We use it as a regular drawer.

    Your kitchen is quite similar to ours. Same color and pattern on the cabinets. Some of the cabinets with windows. Similar hardware. Counters look to be very similar color, sort of a pale grey. Picture is prior to our moving in.

    Matt - what are the machine to the right of the Nespresso machine and the skinny thing below the counter to the right of the sink?

    Cool looking kitchen btw. Looks like it gets a lot of use.

    Soda stream and trash compactor. The former is great, the latter never used. I hate the idea of being able to compact disgusting stuff so that I can keep it in my house longer.

    Everyone likes the same kitchen. Carrera marble with white cabinets and a wood floor or a white floor with a wood kitchen and granite counter top. Oh yeah and a window and a Wolf range/oven with stainless steel refer. [​IMG]

    well if the choice is between that and a black laminate hair salon with Z shaped chairs or 80s album cover art in all of the cabinets...

    If "everyone" likes the same kitchen, how come 98% of the kitchens I see in real life when visiting apartments do not look like that and use disgusting countertops, cheap faux-wood and plasticky looking appliances?

    You keep bringing this up - the ubiquity of SZ fridges, etc... - but your reality seems skewed.

    Looks very professional if a bit lacking in charm. I love certain elements of the modern/sleek/pro look but must confess I prefer something a bit more earthy.

    Well thought out appliances and pull out storage are both glorious things however.
