I think this is the house I saw on worlds greenest homes. It's not a timber kitchen. It's photographs of timber the client liked. The photographs are then inserted into specially made glass fronted cabinet doors. Therefore the kitchen can constantly change.

Wow, thanks for your supportive comments. This hood was a custom piece and was cantilevered off the wall with no visible means of support. If you were to consider something similar I would contact a commercial restaurant hood fabricator to keep within your local codes. The motor was mounted externally behind the hood. Contact me should you need further info and good luck with your project.

Your floor is beautiful. Is it acid etched, or was a different process used?

Thank you for your kind comment. There are gloss through matte agents that can be added to the mix, In this instance we went for a silk finish. Although I designed the kitchen, the cabinets are my main specialty. Please have a peek at my new website that shows other projects www.flauntUK.com Thanks again for your interest.

Yes indeed the countertop is concrete. The surface has a slight texture from corn husks. It gave a more natural look rather than a stark utilitarian feel. Happy you like it!

Jennifer Ott Design added this to 8 Great Kitchen Cabinet Color Palettes
4. Prime. You are now ready to apply primer. If you are going to be painting your cabinets a deep, intense shade, ask your paint retailer to add pigment to the primer to get better color coverage with the final coat.5. Sand, prime and sand again. If you want a super-smooth finish on your cabinets, or to ensure a long-lasting, durable finish, you may want to sand and prime and then sand one last time, using fine-grit sandpaper.6. Clean. Make sure all surfaces to be painted are completely free of dust and grit.7. Spray or brush on the paint. If you don't own a paint sprayer, you can rent one from a home improvement or hardware store. Be aware that spraying can be a messy business, and you'll need to mask and cover anything in the room and adjacent areas that you don't want covered with paint. Install plastic sheeting to close off other rooms in the house. Or simply paint using the highest-quality paintbrush you can afford. Use an angled brush for areas of detail, such as any raised or recessed panels on your fronts.Note: You will want to apply at least two coats of paint. Semigloss is the best finish to use for cabinets because of its durability and ease of cleaning.8. Install. Make sure the paint has dried and cured fully before attaching the fronts; otherwise they might stick to the boxes and cause the paint to chip off. (Installing plastic bumpers to the inside of your fronts can help prevent this). Check with your retailer or consult the paint can for estimates on drying and curing times. Now for the fun part. Install the finished cabinet fronts and door hardware and admire your work. Now for some inspirational kitchens, along with examples of paint and material palettes:
9. Green with envy. What was the first thing that caught our eye when we spied this cool cooking space? The striking island, of course — though the shimmering disco ball–like pendant light probably came in a close second. While the island’s eye-popping lime-green base immediately attracts the eye, the dramatic lines of the thick floating concrete top also command attention.Polished concrete is a stylish and practical kitchen surface choice, as it not only injects any space with a cool, contemporary edge, but is also extremely low maintenance and environmentally friendly, making it ideal for those who desire an ecochic cooking zone that’s a breeze to clean. Did we mention the material is very affordable, too?See more of this ecochic culinary space

stevelivingston Aug 2012 Probably a good choice for a mudroom. The actual concrete floor is only 3/8" thick and was a regular pour. The color was added later as a stain and then the entire floor was finished with a sealer with a semi gloss finish. You could probably try this yourself, but isn't a particularly expensive thing to have done professionally. Happy you like it!

i'm a huge fan of the stained/polished concrete flooring. i like how dark it is, which is easy to hide dirt and marks. i think it also gives the space gravitas. i also love the high-gloss wood cabinetry because it keeps the classic feel with the wood yet modernizes it with the high gloss. i also love the wood pieces making up the ceiling, and i like the fact that it's a different type of wood coloring than the cabinet. though i love kitchen chandeliers over counter tops and islands, i am not a big fan of this metal round thing. and though i love accent colors, this green feels wrong to me. i'm also not a fan of the black or gray counter tops
