Okie dokie. These are before the final fixtures were all in... but nearly complete. Lot's of neutrals and glass tiles on walls, porcelain on the floor. The one (desk) photo with the handle - they were not installed sideways.
Very nice! What kind of cooktop is that? Induction?

We built our house in 2013. We picked everything for the kitchen at the design center so I can't take too much credit for it. All I did was add the pendant lights and the new faucet.





Here is the before pic of our fireplace wall..


And after. We added grey linen wallpaper, 100+ year old reclaimed wood built-in bookcase, and wainscoting on the fireplace.


Back yard before...


Back yard after...




We have since added a pergola over the seating area and a gas fire pit, but I haven't taken any new photos yet.

Wow, tight living quarters with the neighbors. I hope they're all considerate folks.

Nice looking backyards, though. A little competition works wonders.

From this to:







Via that, to...



And now I have 9hours to come up with lamps like this one...



I still have zero clue what I will do with the flat when done, but it will look pretty damn good.

Edit: Appliances are located differently now too but the kitchen is a small change. The whole place had a total "Lups was bored" treatment you got for the last two years.

Always love a good house project thread. After having my first house built in 2013, my first project was mounting some floating shelves to the wall to display my die-cast cars. I purchased a handful of second hand Bertby displays from Ikea in a beech colour and I wanted to paint them white so off I went..

I apologize in advance for my garbage camera phone pics.











































Ta Da!

Yeah - a Miele induction cooktop. They have some new super cool one that has no real "zones", it just senses and creates a zone and a dynamic controller for it wherever you plop a pot down. I wasn't willing to spend $5K on JUST that. The thing is awesome and was a good excuse to get some nice new cookware too.

You want something really cool, get their Future Diamond dishwasher. Seriously... it is epic. It props itself open when it is done to dry the dishes. Best dishwasher I have ever owned.

Interesting. If you were to pick something else, what would you have gone with? I love carrara/calcutta marble but I think I need to find something more durable than marble so I have been hunting for granite/quartz alternative with similar grey veining.

I have this guy who's sold me appliances for years. He knows I don't fuck around with gas and he knows I have boys (read fire hazards).

He sold me the epic induction stove with and I'm quoting here (if we forget this is translated and do note he works in a major retail shop) "Anna you'll feel like some fucking Hans Välimäki (I had to google, apparently finland is deprived of celebrities, we salute chefs as such) because you are not limited by your stove surface."

Great. I just needed a stove and a kitchen I can tolerate.

I did buy the most silent dishwasher I could find since the living room is in the same space as the kitchen and my life is noisy enough.

I probably would have gone in the opposite direction as you are thinking. You are right, you do NOT want marble, unless your kitchen is just for show. I would have gotten something almost slate-like - a more even gray - less "natural" looking. But I do think it looks good like this. I was going for the "operating room" / "hospital" aesthetic. I am told that would not have been comfortable long term, so this was the most I was willing to compromise.

I'm trying to figure out what the fuck is the name of the wood I used for the kitchen counters in English but oiled wood all the way here. I polished them after two layers of white wood oil and then put a harder oil as a finish.

I love wooden counters, and I cook three to four full meals per day. Marble os not as forgiving as wood is though so I agree with you.

You know, everybody including Consumer Reports and other "rating" sites always say that but we replaced some shiny granite and went with statuary carrarra marble on our cooking island. It been every bit as durable and stain free in 5 years of normal living and heavy cooking as the honed black granite that it plays against on other surfaces. For some reason I also think it seems to always look nicer and cleaner than the honed granite. And to clean it, you can just use rubbing alcohol which smells so sterile and clean

Maybe you know the German, French or Dutch word?

I turned a bathroom door into a fake bookcase. This was my first and only real building project. (Also my first YouTube video and it now has half a million views haha) I don't show the actual building process since I was making it up as I went along. Turned out ok if you don't look too closely!

We use wood a lot (hello, finland. We have plenty! ) I've had everything from only oiled light woods to now really dark and let me just say: A bitch to match me to work with: Acacia wood surfaces.

Ash. I used my last resource. "what the fuck is saarni in English?"

"how do you not know this shit? Ash..."

I hate my walking dictionary.

The only time I've managed to harm my surfaces (and I really use my kitchens) was two days ago. I mildly dropped the hood onto it in a bad angle after it had shredded two of my fingers with its edges and my phone kept ringing. That will need a sandpaper for two seconds and I would've needed stitches.
