Rocky River Kitchen

Framed by a large, arched wall, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It is where the family shares its meals and is the center of entertaining. The focal point of the kitchen is the 6'x12' island, where six people can comfortably wrap around one end for dining or visiting, while the other end is reserved for food prep. Nestled to one side, there is an intimate wet bar that serves double duty as an extension to the kitchen and can cater to those at the island as well as out to the family room. Extensive work areas and storage, including a scullery, give this kitchen over-the-top versatility. Designed by the architect, the cabinets reinforce the Craftsman motif from the legs of the island to the detailing in the cabinet pulls. The beams at the ceiling provide a twist as they are designed in two tiers allowing a lighting monorail to past between them and provide for hidden lighting above to reflect down from the ceiling.

The cabinets are steamed beech. I do not know the exact color, but it was a stock color from Benjamin Moore.

I'll look for the original manufacturers, we picked it 6 years ago and it was obscure then but I know Home Depot carries a version of it now.

Hi kbmkmm, it's actually not as light as in the picture above. If you send me an email to barrybarstool@gmail.com I can email you an actual photo of this bar stool from our showroom. Thanks!

This kitchen is gorgeous, but I'm guessing it's not yours?? Better to post a picture of your existing kitchen so we can give you pointers for a quick update...

Scored and stained concrete. Used a heavy burn finish on the concrete and they were stained after framing and then covered until the cabinets were installed, then re-covered prior to painting and staining.

I own the house, I'm sure that somewhere in a box is the name of the stain color, but as we're soon to sell the house, we have moved all those boxes to storage units. Sorry, but like I said, its one of Benjamin Moore's stock colors.

I've forgotten whose catalog I got those from, I'll try to dig it up. If you'd like you can send the photo to Lighting Inc. in Austin Texas via email ask someone to direct it Mark Y. He helped us gather everything for the house.
