We went with some pretty basic stainless steel, mostly Whirlpool.
— Four Burner Gas Cook Top – (I burn food easily with electric and I considered a five gas burner cook top but that took me over my budget)
— Dishwasher – (my concern was the noise so I upgraded to a stainless interior for added insulation)
— Wall Ovens – (having the oven at a higher level makes seeing and reaching what I am baking easier)
— Blower Insert – (so I can do a wood hood over the cook top)
— Refrigerator – (this Kitchen Aide has a flat front, not curved, and I like the look. I don’t mind that the door handles will look a bit different than the other appliances)
— Microwave? – (Nope – I am putting a generic one hidden inside the pantry)
Picking appliances isn’t very exciting for you to read about that’s why I am including pictures of the homes we toured over the weekend.
I noticed a lot of dark trimmed windows and dark doors, inside and out.
I love the contrast!
Lots of light walls.
One thing that I am so happy we did choose to upgrade is a raised hearth at the fireplace. Even my cute husband said “good call on the fireplace hearth”.
Ours won’t be brick or stone, that is too committal for me, but it will be raised with trim and a wood mantel.
I do wish we were getting a real fireplace with a chimney in the family room but a gas fireplace is included and I have to be selective about where our money goes. We can burn real wood in the backyard fire bowl.
Next choices are plumbing and lighting.
Can I just say that I am so happy that Halloween is over. OMG! That one is my least favorite holiday of all time.
Now, cheers to being more thankful, celebrating the birth of my sweet boys and Christmas. Yay!
Until next time.
