Kitchen selections (e.g. cabinets, counter tops, light fixtures, faucets, appliances, and flooring) can make even the SAME kitchen look completely different.

The door located just past the fridge leads direclty into the garage. This kitchen layout is on the traditional side, with the kitchen facing into the breakfast room and sun room (rather than open to the great room).

What's your cooking style? Both kitchens include double wall ovens for maximum baking space. What else matters in your routine? Gas heat for the range? Pot filler for easy fill-ups at the stove?
