    So, obviously, Hogburglar. My second choice would be #1, as it is the least "industrial" looking. But I have no design/fashion sense at all.

    Wood. Close to the colour shown, but a little bit darker.

    White with black tile backsplash. My kitchen will look like this:

    Those counters look good but they don't have that specific one anymore.

    I need a new laptop. First, I got the BSOD 4 times in the past 3 weeks, and second, all three samples look identical. And I can't crank up the brightness any more.

    Well you tell that to my 3 year old LCD.

    I looked at the link in the original post in the other thread. *there* I can tell a difference. Weird. I don't like 2. Lighter is better. I *think* I prefer 1, slightly.

    Thanks. I should mention #3 is $1250 cheaper.

    What is the material of each? With white cupboards you can pretty much go with any counter. I'd skip the black back splash. But that's just me. Is the wood floors already installed?

    Counters are quarts and cabinets are high gloss.

    Nothing installed yet, this is a brand new home I am picking the design elements for.

    Wood floors are more similar to this http://milanohardwood.com/products/hickory-siena

    I was pretty set on everything but the counters as the other options weren't great especially for cabinets and backsplash.
