A big debate was between stainless steel appliances and black. We chose black.
*Questions and unexpected events that arose during the project:
We received slightly different style cabinets than we had originally ordered, they were already customized, however, and they looked great so we had them installed to stay on track.
* Cost Comments:
~$6000 on materials (oak cabinets, silestone tops, black GE appliances)
~$2000 on labor assistance
*My motivation to do this project:
We wanted to increase the value of our home, while keeping an updated look throughout.
We researched updated kitchens, at IKEA, Home Depot, and Lowe's. We knew the main thing we wanted was an island and additional space, so we hired a contractor to guide us along the process and let us know exactly what our options were. Once we solidified a plan, it was off to the races.
Kitchen - Do recessed lighting, Do an island, Don't hire a contractor without checking his background/portfolio
Oak Cabinets - $0.00
Silestone - $0.00
Appliances - $0.00

Ephriam gave us great direction and insight, to truly discover what we wanted. And, he helped
us put it all together in a timely and cost effective fashion.
