Bold Approach

The renovation of the kitchen in this contemporary timber home sought to make the most of its compact u-shaped plan. Cherry slab door cabinets were paired with granite tops and accented by glass and stainless steel. Custom built ins took advantage of every nook and allowed for a better connection between the family room eating area and the open kitchen. Because of the tongue in groove wood ceilings, flexible monorail track lighting with glass shades were chosen over the typical recess lighting. The colored glass also makes an appearance in the random pattern backsplash. PHOTOGRAPY: Anice Hoachlander, Hoachlander Davis Photography

We used a hood insert from Vent-A-Hood and then had the surround custom fabricated out of stainless steel

Great kitchen layout. Very interested in the ventilation. - Our kitchen will have a header just like the one here and I really like the hood. Will you share the manufacturer of the hood? Also, please tell me how it was vented. Many thanks, Yvonne

We used a hood insert by Vent-A-Hood that is normally used to insert into wood hood surrounds and had a metal fabricator make the surround out of stainless steel. This allowed us to get the ducting where we needed it and not obstruct the view out.

Backsplash - My husband and I have been looking for a classy, inexpensive backsplash for months, and this is one of the few we can both agree on. Do you know what it is/where it was purchased?

We used standard selections of Crossville Milestone Mosaics series and blended in some of there more costly textured glass tiles from Crossville that were available per tile. We always recommend finding a good local tile shop and working with one of the designers there to help determine what great options are available
