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.

range hood - could you tell me the manufacturer of the hood over the cooktop? It's pretty much exactly what I'm looking for. The combination of elements in this kitchen is just incredible btw.

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.

How can you achieve a level floor across concrete and timber like this? - Do you lay 2 levels of concrete and then lay the timber on the lower part, or can you lay a thin layer of concrete of the consistency required for flooring on top of an even concrete base? I love the idea of concrete flooring but want to spruce it up in the living areas with a timber trim.

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 Thanks again for your interest.

Gorgeous countertop! Is that concrete? - Can you tell me what surface is used for the island counter?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
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!

Beautiful Island - We love the design of your island and would like to do something similar in our kitchen. Since it is on four legs and has a sink, can you tell us what you did to hide the plumbing and drainage pipes? Our kitchen designer is telling us one side of the island will have to go to the floor. Please help!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

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:

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!
