  1. Wow! You did such an amazing job and I absolutely love it! This is similar to what I have planned for our kitchen just haven’t tackled it yet.I love the chandeliers you choose for over the island.

  2. Awesome DIY … this kitchen looks stunning!

    It really looks like a kitchen from a magazine 🙂

    Well done … I have to say that I love the flooring colour you guys went with.

    Thanks for sharing this,


  3. Hello. I just bought my first house and will be remodeling my kitchen. I picked out the exact marble that you have (or something very similar.) What is the upkeep on your marble backsplash? Is it a lot of maintenance? Thank you!

  4. What type of range hood did you use? I am looking at doing a covered hood as well but trying to figure out how to recirculate the air without a soffit. Thanks!
