The flooring in the kitchen is an engineered hardwood. This will be in the kitchen, dinette and foyer. The wood type is Hickory and the color is called Fall Canyon. This is the same flooring they have in the Ryan model home and we really like it.
We changed our cabinet choices, we originally had selected a cherry cabinet. We didn't particularly like the way it looked with the flooring. This year we put a glaze on our current cabinets to make them a Java color. We really like it. With that in mind we decided to go with darker cabinets in the new home. The color is Maple Espresso. The cabinets are made by Timberlake Cabinetry and the product line is Scottsdale.
There will be granite in the kitchen which I'm pretty excited about. I had researched the choices with Ryan ahead of time and found plenty of blogs and images for the granite choices. I had an idea of what I wanted. Bob and I both agreed on the Santa Cecelia Granite which seems to be one of the most popular. It has a lot of variation in grain and color and offers a lot of warmth.
Here is an image of them all together.
Our appliance package is GE appliances in black. I have information on them, I will post links for those later. The kitchen sink will be a stainless steel under mount sink. We didn't really care for the faucet options, so we are getting a very basic faucet which we will replace later. All of the lighting and plumbing through the rest of the house is in Oil Rubbed Bronze, so it's likely that we will find a faucet in this finish later. We chose not to have Ryan do our black splash either, so we will do that at a later time.
