Hey everyone first time poster and I have a bit of a question!
I am re-modeling my house, an open air type home (with sliding glass doors all around it) and is just over 5k sqft, so I need a kitchen to match.
Here's what I have so far
I have an island style cooking area, with a top deck that is flush with the griddle on the stove (a commercial wolf CHSS-6-1829-HB6 burner with griddle and salamander) the lower deck is flush with the burners.
This island is made out of wood with durarock lining the area where the stove is going to live; the durarock will have thermal tiles on it as well. I will be making the wolf splash back into a "snub" back where it only comes up to the base of the griddle (to not ruin the style of the island)
I will be using a stainless 4 motor hood that is the same diameter as the wolf, 4 puck lights will be installed inside the hood.
For the refrigerator I have a Traulsen (URS 36DT) fridge/freezer with the glass door &3 drawers. I am planning on mounting the fridge flush on the left side of the cabinets and remote mounting the compressor on the other side of the wall to reduce noise and heat.
The stove and fridge are a little older but in great condition (minus some cleaning and buffing that needs to be done on the stove and 1 bum compressor on the freezer half of the Traulsen).
For the washer I was thinking of getting a Bosch of some type, maybe an Evolution 800 in SS
The sink is going to be a commercial stainless unit with residential style Delta faucets, with soap stone over the top; I will also be using soap stone for all the counter tops.
Am I missing anything here, is there anything in particular I should be sure I do when I start installing everything????
I know when you try to mix form and function it can get to be a little...interesting, however any input would be greatly appreciated
