I have new stainless appliances and I hate them. They show fingerprints and are hard to clean. You need to put cabinets above the lower cabinets. The design above does not look very appealing. I have Zodiac engineered stone (Quartz) countertops and love them.

Wow. My stainless appliances don't show any fingerprints and fairly easy to keep them clean but the stove top is a bitch to keep it clean because it is black.

Great kitchen Paul, what's the flooring?
I have a stainless steel fridge too, no prints on mine either. I guess there are different finishes. My best advice would be to do a fingerprint test on the appliances you're thinking you'll get. Lick'em and Stick'em

The floor is actually ceramic tile.

I'm on my second kitchen. Leaving the sink where it is, not adding anything infrastructure-wise beyond a duct for the range hood. Also, agree, you cannot have too many cabinets.

For reasons of economy and general cheapness, vinyl floor, laminate countertops, Mills-Pride cabinets and keeping old appliances since they are only a few years old.

Paul, I have a quick question for you, unless someone else knows the answer. The wood on your cabinets: what is it? I was referring to lower picture you have. Thanks.

Default Remodeling kitchen, any advice?

Hi,

I think you should go in for Stainless Steel Sinks, Ceramic Sinks, Copper Sinks or even Stone Sinks. I think the best for your kitchen would be a stone sink.

Regards,

Stone Sinks
