      Liked your homes in Fountain Hills, AZ and copied your gorgeous backsplash , Madison Nacar by Porcelanosa , to use in redoing my entire kitchen in FL. Liked your homes except I have only pull out drawers and NO stationary shelves! I do have toe lights, even in my island and glass enclosed cabinets totally above to the ceiling , except my pantry has only one row above it. Venice Woodworking, a single person, did it, with incorporating some of my ideas! Love all my slate kitchen aid appliances and wine frig in island – also raised waste basket there- Have coffee enclosed station, Elkay bending sink hose, split half raised sink, drawer under sink, no visible hood as cabinet is above induction stove top and quartz counter tops! Have more kitchen storage that one can ever use! At 86 , this is my last kitchen redoing – white cabinets and silver pulls that actually match my appliances and every thing is done so I do not have to reach for anything – dishes in huge drawer! Antiques in all lighted cabinets ! All that see it are amazed at the beauty! Will be willing to share! I have a tv above my 12 foot counter ( used to be all ceiling to floor mirrors) – now all cabinets below ! I love and live in my kitchen !

    13. Burton's Bespoke says:

      Great share! Bespoke & semi-bespoke kitchens have become a popular choice now-a-days no matter what the size of the kitchen. A luxury bespoke kitchen is built to give everything one wants and needs, but with a complete personal touch. Since we do not get to change our kitchen often, it is important to get it customized by the best bespoke kitchen manufacturers.
