Hi Robin,
I am not a DIYer. The cabinets were painted by my painter, who retired several years ago. If memory serves me, he took the cabinet doors/drawers to his workshop and sprayed them. The finish was a semi gloss. This kitchen no longer exists, having been replaced by my present kitchen more than two years ago. I still don't have photos of it up on Houzz!

It's probably Halo, and I usually specify clear Alzac trim. This space has been completely remodeled and those cans are gone and new ones in place!

Hi Aalang, Sorry, but I don't have that information in my files any more. This project was done in 2005. The tiles are 12" squares, precut.

What material is the floor?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Laura Steen, I visited www.checkerboardfloors.com and they sell commercial grade sheet flooring that holds up to a lot of wear and tear with three options for laying it down. I hope you have support of someone that can help you through this change. God bless

Laura Steen, I would like to know what the name of marble you put in your remodel, it looks like it is marbled?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Current Events for Traditional Kitchens
8. Add drama with a bold color. Accent your space with a bold, contemporary color, like on these cabinets. The contrast against a largely white space is uniquely modern.Browse more rooms with black cabinets
Samantha Schoech added this to Get a Knack for Black
Black cabinetry has an old-fashioned look and is best used below the counter.
Fred Albert added this to Keeping Cabinet Color on the Down Low
It’s funny that a small kitchen with black cabinets could end up feeling so sunny, but that’s the case here. I applaud the designer for her daring — and the homeowners for their trust. Notice how the color repeats between the lower cabinets and the floor tile, which is set on the diagonal to make the small space appear bigger.
