I have remodeled kitchen completely.

Previously it was a closed type of kitchen. The load barring wall was removed (supported by 20 ft long beam 2X12/plywood/2X12 ) and a bar built. I have a problem with the oven – it is sticking out over the bar a little (red arrow), when I will be selling the place I will buy an oven that is flat and on the same level with the rest of the lower cabinets.


Question: I have some cabinets in my garage (same look as those on the picture). Would you put them on the wall in the red circled area? I am especially concerned about the bigger area close to the windows…I kind of like it open and there will be no cabinets at the bottom.

Perhaps in the circle next to the sink but definitely NOT in the circle by the corner.

I'm not understanding you. You asked about cabinets for the wall. What does wood, natural stone or ice makers have to do with that?

My kitchen remodel pictures are what my clients asked for. In the ONE kitchen that shows hardwood flooring, the customer had that installed BEFORE I did the the remodel. While I personally am not a fan of hardwood in a kitchen, what's wrong with it? Are you saying there can't be any damage to a flooded tile floor? Well if you fully WATERPROOF a floor, which takes MUCH more than just laying tile, then you may be correct. OF course, any adjoining flooring would be subject to the same water if not absorbed by the kitchen.

For minor water damage, a wood floor can be refinished.
