Designing the kitchen cabinets

We've spent the last few weeks designing our perfect kitchen. Today I used a CAD program to layout the kitchen. I wanted to see exactly how everything is going to tie in together.

The program is not perfect but it's very good. I was able to use similar cabinets and stain, the ones we are getting are nicer and more detailed but this works to really give us a view of how it will turn out.

Here are a few shots of what the kitchen will look like:

Some of the things that are not correct in the pictures; The wall oven will be even with the cabinet next to it. The floor tile is too small, it's 12x12, I'm thinking we're going to need 16x16 or 18x18, the color Isn't right either, it's going to be a dark slate with maybe a hint of green in it. There will also be a valance above the sink that I couldn't get the program to add. I also couldn't add the backsplash, it's going to be travertine tumbled stone.

The cabinets on the far left in the last pic above are one's we're thinking of installing at a later date, the base cabinets will only be 12" deep as will the uppers. Here is another shot of it:

Here is a showroom display of the actual cabinets we will be getting:

The uppers in the pic are only 30", we'll be getting 42". With 11' ceilings we're going to need them.
