Kitchen traditional-kitchen


Attention to detail combined with the artful incorporation of modern appliances make the Clareville kitchen a perfect example of beauty and functionality working flawlessly together. This room manages to be cozy and inviting, while still providing ample space for entertaining large parties. Exquisite granite surfaces serve as prep areas as well as extra seating. Appliances are flush within the design of custom cabinetry. Quaint meets sophisticated in an oval porthole window surrounded by a diamond-tiled backdrop. In contrast with the neutral tones of the walls and cabinetry, the center island and craftsman-style oven hood are stained in a warm cherry.

Oak & Broad
It looks like Antique Heart Pine, nice wide widths too. Floors like this are often made to order with input from the homeowner to ensure satisfaction. Its made from carefully reclaimed sources after all.

This island is a little over 3' x 7' and the bar counter has a 2' radius.

Also, the painter we use, Tom Hedke of Hedke Painting, would recommend Benjamin Moore 2128-60 - Beacon Gray for the wall color.

The ivory cabinets look similar to White Duck 7010 (but they may also have been treated with a custom glaze), and the island cabinets look close to Bright Cherry stain 3109, both by Sherwin Williams.
