are these shaker style cabinets? - I need help with this. I love this type hood but not sure if shaker style cabinet fronts are dressy enough for the hood. Are these shaker style cabinet fronts? I love this look and it looks good all together. Please help!

The cabinets do not have shaker doors. They are custom doors made by a local shop. They are inset in a beaded frame and have a flat panel door with a moulding profile where the panel and the frame meet.

I recommend you consult a design professional in your area to help you determine a cabinet style that best compliments your new hood.

What type of wood is on the island? Also, what is the stain color? What are your thoughts on durability? - Very favorite kitchen!!!

Thank you! The wood on the island is mahogany. I am sorry I don't recall what stain was applied on it.

Wood is certainly not he most resilient of materials to use on a counter top (neither is marble which was also used in the kitchen)... I have always found a lot of beauty in the way materials patina as they are used and age. I think a counter top with dings and stains speaks to the way it was used, and how people have lived around it, so I have no issues with materials "wearing"... If you want your counters to look like the way they were installed, then granite is probably a better choice.

Electrical outlet could be hidden inside the island & small hole drilled in counter for plug & cord of the lamp.

The range hood is a Scagliola Stone ( a cast limestone product) from Francois and Co. in Atlanta. You can find more information on their products here:

The stools came from Scott's Antique market in Atlanta.

Please let me know if you have any other questions!
