We are in the midst of a total kitchen demolition and new everything. In fact, the kitchen is moving to a new addition. I can't tell you how much the existing kitchen needed to be gone and how glad I am that it's going!
We've pretty much got the cabinet design finalized and are looking at appliances. I want a gas cooktop and think a 30" would look better than a 36" along the wall where it will go. I don't intend to ever cook enough to need the 36" anyway!
For the same reason, I see no need for the pro brands. I just want something that looks decent and works!
I'm looking at the GE Cafe cooktop which gets pretty good reviews. Out of the negative reviews I've seen, some mention the plastic knobs.
I'm considering the Whirlpool Convection Wall Oven & a separate Whirlpool convection microwave.
I'm mixing brands >>gasp<< but I don't think they're close enough to each other to make much difference. I know there is a difference between stainless steel in the various brands. (I don't think that's fair, btw.)
Anyway... does anyone have those particular brands and have opinions one way or the other?
We will also have an island with a bar/prep sink & wine fridge. Any thoughts on wine fridges? We'd like one with adjustable shelves since we bottle our wine in 1/2 & 1 gallon jugs!
We haven't purchased yet so welcome other suggestions too.
Are there things you wished you'd done differently when you built your home or remodeled a kitchen?
