Today I asked the contractor to add plumbing for a potfiller to break up the backsplash area behind the grilltop a little bit. Style of the fixtures I've been looking at is masculine clean and modern. Its amazing how expensive fixtures/sinks etc are. I'm in the wrong business! For sink I'm thinking ...

The top oven is probably a microwave. I'll second and urge the use of drawers instead of cabinet doors with pull outs. In the cabinet business that is called a pots and pans base. One top drawer of normal depth, with two deep drawers under. Another suggestion, keep the handles simple. Many a modern...

coupla thoughts: -- nice material selection. -- 2 built in ovens and no microwave? -- no pantry? where will you keep dry goods? over the counters in a 12in deep cabinet? -- you might think about deep drawers instead of lower cab doors. much easier to access the contents. -- cooktop ventilation? One...

Great looking kitchen design. If it's not to late you may want to switch the recessed fridge and oven locations. You're going to open the fridge about 10 times for each time you open the oven. Just a thought. Excellent idea. It is not too late. Framing is just about done, but no electrical or finis...

despite what ever style you're shooting for, you should consider scale and how you will use your kitchen. from the images, it seems a little small. When finished, will you have adequate cabinet and counter space? Adequate cabinet/counter space for a 1700sq foot home. The rendering isn't completely ...

been a while since I updated this thread. Got the final design worked out and appliances chosen etc. Demo started while I was out of the country over new years.

The area where the white wall (the one with the door to the garage) meets the brown tile looks odd to me. I suspect that there used to be a wall there? The direction that the bar faces seems wrong. Should a kitchen bar area face an entryway? The terracotta was added in 1972 I assume when the applia...

Cool house! I love the curvature and that wall of windows! Thanks for the compliments! I'm not fond of the location of the oven, which seems to interrupt the counters (my own preference, based on experience, is to have my counter space as continuous as possible). The fridge seems rather far from th...

I have a very similar lighting problem. No attic space, and I'm not willing to let some hack electrician rip up the wood. As you can see in the following photo, the previous owners installed 70s tracklighting to help with the situation, but it is my only lighting in this room. http://www.roguemotori...

It feels like an episode of Entourage! Are you carrying bricks in there or just a sporting air ride lifters? Friends of my family had one of these in a sedan. The suicide back doors were cool even to a six year old. There was some talk of bringing back the suicide doors in the latest Lincoln concep...

Re: My 2 cents

Is there electric outlets in the floor since you seem to have all glass walls? I probably see your house every day across the lake as I come to work down Earl to Silver Lake Bl. you seem to be near Lautner's Silvertop (?). Yup all the electrical is in the floor so my wiring options for lighting is ...

The countertop material that looks like terrazzo is Caesarstone. but I agree black would be nice. Even dare I say granite. As long as the edge is plain. The outside surface of the wood can be refinished so they are more matte. (I figure they have had gloss or semi-gloss polyurethane slopped on them...

What a fabulous house, Rogue! That curved wall of windows is absolutely spectacular, as is the view! Congratulations!!! I know you said that kitchen and bathroom were low on your priority list, but they caught my eye. As far as the kitchen goes, the cabinets look original -- I would keep them if yo...

New Midcentury home owner.

Hi all. I've been a lurker on this forum for quite some time. I recently acquired a Mid Century Modern home in the Los Angeles area in late November and have been working on getting rid of all my old condo furnishings and trying to rework my style a bit to fit the home. I am no interior designer but...
