Maria, Sorry, don't have much experience with that.
I'd recommend finding a local professional.

Depends on the finished look. Oak is an open grain wood. If you want it to be smooth it needs to be filled. If you like the look of oak but a color, just paint it. It is a nice look.

Stainless - I have all stainless appliances, subzero, Viking, fan warming shelf backsplash, etc. , and have tried everything to get them clean and shiney. What is the best thing to use and is it possible that there was a finish on them that I have possibly worn off. Help please.

There is also a product available at Costco online called Shela Shine that works really well ....and keeps everything pristine. Another option for you....

It's a natural hickory. This particular floor was installed raw and then finished.

Since I love your kitchen designs; I was wondering if I am doing contemporary style shaker cabs..what kind of crown molding should I do...my cabinets are not built in (not against a wall)...also, I am building up my island with a thicker granite..would it be okay for the island to be higher than the perimeter counters???

I have no problem with that. Often two different thickness of counters are used in my designs.

What are the differences between a stainless pull or nickel pull??? Do you recommend a manuf for them??? Like this photo, I am also doing a pull up cabinet..I noticed this one is done in a frosted glass...would a clear glass look okay?? We didnt do it in stainless like this pic...we did a pull up wood cabinet...clear glass okay or is frosted nicer???

There is little visual difference between the two. You could purchase the pulls through Top Knobs or Atlas Homewares. Clear glass vs. frosted....It's just personal preference.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Kitchen Ideas: 12 Refrigerators in Disguise
If you’re a fan of stainless steel, you can still incorporate your favorite finish without your fridge being the focal point. Simply surround your oven with your refrigerator (in this case, two!) and finish the entire area in stainless steel. The attention is diverted from the fridge to the stylish composition of the stainless steel.
