I was also worried about having the laminate in a wet environment like the kitchen (dog bowl area is notoriously dribbly)...
Let me know what you guys think!
Cabinets - Maple Spice, Sonoma style
Countertop - Dakota Mahogany granite
Tile - nameless gray tile (Daltile)
(I put three representations of the granite, not sure which one is most correct)
My current choices are in my previous post... I'm glad that they still have to sell 3 more units until they start building so I have time to figure all this out...
