What wood was used on the floors (bamboo or select hickory) and are they a natural stain?

The wood is White Oak... it's solid, not veneered. No stain was used.

Oak & Broad
Beyond that it looks like they used a water borne clear poly finish as well. That allows the wood to keep its natural color and not turn overly golden from an oil based finish.

The cabinets are a true black. They are painted with an oil-based paint in a semi-gloss sheen.

Spacing - Hi, I love this! Can I ask: Did you leave the same amount of space between the kitchen cabinets and the island as you did between the island and the outside entry? Maybe about 4" between both? I am designing a kitchen and struggling with whether to leave more room between the island and outdoor entry than I leave between the cabinets and island. Thanks very much and I love your work!

The spacing was about the same on both sides of the island... roughly 3'6". Hope this helps.

The doors were purchased through Glass Concepts in San Rafael, CA. They're basically a "bi-folding" system that glide along a track.

Thank you; I wonder if the Q&A system has a glitch, as some repetition seems to be happening?

Love your work; that much can be repeated.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Originally the far end of this space — now a dining area — was a bedroom. Urrutia knocked out a wall to transform a 14x45' room into this 14x65' room. At right is one of the home's most popular innovations: two 22-foot folding doors that open to the pool and outdoor kitchen. "Before, it was all lit with windows, with a door to the deck at each end," Urrutia says. "I wanted to connect the indoors and the outdoors."
Jennifer Ott Interior Design added this to Cooking With Color: When to Use Black in the Kitchen
Black absorbs rather then reflects light, so if you are using a large amount of the hue in a space, try to counter it with plenty of light — preferably of the natural variety. The high white ceiling, skylights and wall of sliding glass doors in this kitchen more than balance out the black.
