    I didnt like the chinese cabinet either in the beginning but it has grown on me. I would buy it as part of the kitchen.

    Well I don't like that part too much.

    Seems to me that kitchen could use some more stainless steel and a simple sub-zero there would be a better choice for me.


    Ha! That actually makes it for me. I generally don't like that color white kitchens, they strike me as cheap Home Depot cabinets, but the natural wood accent takes it to another level.

    I kind of thought that too. But I am REALLY tired of SubZero refers everyone on the planet has one or one like it. This is something else.

    YMMV but the fact that others have it vs. the fact that no one has a fridge inside a chinese armoire is not motive for liking the look of it. Everyone has a toaster, I have a toaster - big deal. What about white shiny toilets? I don't necessarily feel that my bathroom would look better if my toto was enclosed in rattan - know what I mean?

    I guess I am looking at it from a design point of view. I see so many kitchens that I get bored with the same thing over and over. Good point though.

    Maybe that is why there are lots of cool toasters.

    I don't hate it btw - it's not too bad but I would opt for something else personally. Also, it very much depends on the rest of the apartment/house.

    I would like to get some ops on this kitchen. I think it is very cool but want feedback. Feel free to be picky. I wont give you a price as shown so dont ask. I am looking for feedback on just the LOOK alone.

    Hate the cabinet but otherwise it's pretty sweet!

    I'm a little lost by the different patterns on the doors and drawers - some with wide framing, some with very thin... [​IMG]

    Would you like a stainless SubZero or would you like to see more of the cabinets where the fridge is?

    So you would like a more consistant look?

    I'd want a SZ to balance the Wolf range there on the left, and bring more ss into the overall picture. My personal preference. I am generally not a fan of built-in fridges either.
