Are the cabinets made of rift sawn oak? What stain was used to achieve this color? It's perfect!

That's for asking. Yes, they are rift white oak with a custom stain. There is a little bit of gray pigment in the mix that softens the ebony.

The white countertops (and backsplashes) are a quartz composite product called Chroma. See We used the matte version which softens the bright white. It is highly stain resistant if properly sealed. the bar counter is wrapped in zinc.

Thanks for asking!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

It's amazing what an impact a few colorful pots and pans can make against a neutral-toned backdrop of woods and whites.

love the look of the stools, but think it would be more functional to have hydraulic stools. The amt of natural light is great and makes the dark cabinets more appealing.
