It took about a month but it's finally done thanks to the wonderful help from Gloria of Gilmans Kitchens & Baths. I wanted to keep the cabinets because I like the clean white look. I definitely wanted new countertops, new appliances, and a nice backplash. Gloria did a great job getting a sense of my style and I think it came together nicely. :)
Here are the Kitchen Before Pics (Notice the yucky tiles):
The old countertops were removed and the two week waiting period began while our new countertops were being templated. I hired another set of contractors, Meyer Appliance, to cut out a hole for the new range and to remove the cabinets to make more space for my new Vent-a-Hood. I also purchased my new appliances from them.
Here's a close up of my awesome new Thermador Stove and Asko dishwasher (before backsplash)
And here's the final product. I'm just loving my new kitchen.
