Kitchen Remodel and Room Addition- Rich cherry cabinetry,
combined with granite countertops and state of the art stainless
steel appliances make this kitchen a perfect blend of beauty, style,
and function. However, what makes this kitchen truly breathtaking
is its stunning slate and glass tile backsplash. The rich texture and
autumn colors of the artistic tile design compliments the wood tones
of the Brookhaven Edgemont cabinets and Toasted Almond granite.
A wall was removed to open the space up to the eating area. The
eating area was further opened up by bumping the back wall out
towards the backyard. Oak hardwood flooring completes the ambiance.
A mudroom was also added to the rear of the home This uniqueness
of this kitchen, along with the beautiful antiques of our clients makes
this home truly charming. Kitchen Renovation. Oakland County, MI

Great Wall color! - I, too, have cherry cabinets and am having a hard time picking out a wall color. I love this combination of wall, cabinet and backsplash color. Hope you remember what it was!

I can tell you that the backsplash was by Jeffery Court and its called Autumn Slate Mosiacs. I believe its discontinued but here is a very similar one. http://www.jeffreycourt.com/chpt9_slate_and_quartz_mosaics.asp . As far as the paint color I will have to look into our archives and get back with you. Hope this helps. Thanks for asking!

Thank you. The flooring was existing and was refinished at the time of the renovation. I believe it was done in a natural finish.

What is the color of the walls? We have the same brookhaven cabinets, but they are looking really orange.

You are correct. They were shorter because the space was tight in this small home. It was designed to look like more of a hutch using 18" cabinets. Thanks for asking
