White Kitchens & Stoves

January 4, 2015


You know I love a white kitchen, so much so this blog could almost be called “White Kitchens & A Few Other Things” but I love a good vibe too.  And nothing gets you to a Kitchen that feels authentic and original like an old stove; or a stove that has that feeling, like an Aga.  I am a firm believer that the interiors and exteriors need to have a dialog.  I’m not saying they have to match, It can be a fun surprise to walk in to the unexpected, but for the most part you can’t go wrong to match the should vibe of the architecture to the interior build-out, be it kitchen, bath or other.  I guess as much as I love modern, my heart skips a bit when I see old original hardware, enameled stoves, and quirky windows and well constructed built-ins that are original to any structure.

On this range big time.  It might be a LaCornue but the hardware looks more like a Bertazzoni, regardless this is a pretty range.  And it would add the look and feel of quality to any kitchen.  I think I need one of these in my life!  Stainless is so yesterday.

    If stainless is “so yesterday” what do I put in our remodel? Serious question.

      Buy appliances equiped with trim kits and cover the fridge and dishwasher with your cabinet materal. No fingerprints. Re the range… You will mostlikely end up with a stainless range because the better white or black stoves run 4k to 8k and probably not project approprate.
