We continue to LOVE our kitchen! It not only looks great, and ages graciously, but it works perfectly. A cooking station allows for so many things: cooking, last minute prep, serving of dishes, and often as a buffet to display dishes. Marble is holding great. Only stain is from our cat Squicky, who one night overindulged in stealing from uncovered dishes on the stove and got sick from overeating. When we discovered the accident, it already etched the marble slightly, but we do not worry. Cherry wood used for the counter top is richer with age and personalized with Newman scratches. Would not go back to granite counter tops, this is so much warmer…
Hanging open shelves are overflowing with everyday china and coffee cups. Ice Box station is perfect… We both love our kitchen pantry, it provides storage and a place to assemble great sandwiches, roll pastry, and make a bread dough. And appliances are not only invisible, but so quiet. I did not realize how much noise was in our previous kitchen until we lived with this one. Stove fan is fantastic, and totally silent. Our guests love our kitchen, so we brought two rocking chairs from the living room and sit here with our guests. Our little kitchen table hosted some wonderful dinners.
Thanks, Spomenka and Bob
PS. I forgot to tell you that our Pepper loves the working pantry best, because it houses his favored Milk Bone cookies. I am so glad that paint is scratch resistant, because he jumps and scratches pantry doors trying to reach his treats. You probably did not think of this when you imagined who are going to be potential consumers of your beautiful furniture. Pesty Peppi and sneaky Squicky.
