Our trip to Ikea's kitchen department the other day made us aware that our current kitchen floor plan is not the best use of space so we are back to the drawing board for a new layout. A minor problem is that we've already framed the patio door and put in a sink window to accommodate for the original layout. I was happy to find that our possible new kitchen would cost around $7000 for materials and appliances not including labor. But I plan to do most of the work myself to save on labor cost. Now that we know for sure that Justin is getting pay some decent money for the commercial music he did, we might even splurge and get couple of nicer appliances.
I am loving this red Bertazzoni gas range, but even the most basic stainless steel model is barely within our budget, and the red costs $1000 more. Ouch!
Our less expensive option is the Framtid from Ikea.
I am also in love with this Liebherr counter depth fridge. It's perfect for our small kitchen with 10 ft. high ceiling. But at $2500 it's more than what we want to pay for a 13 cu.ft. refrigerator.
The American company Summit makes a similar skinny fridge at about half the price, but it definitely doesn't look as sleek...and it is 2 cu.ft. smaller.
