I'm sorry, but I'm not a huge fan of green cabinets. But maybe bunker hill green by benjamin moore? Here's the link: http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/paint-color/bunkerhillgreen
Thanks!

All looks fine, beautiful kitchen, but I would re-paint the cabinets in cream shade, it would look much better

Hi! The stovetop is 36 inches and four burners. The island is 5' 6" by 2' 6". And I guess the countertop is even a little wider, since it hangs over. Maybe an extra 5 inches. We thought briefly about doing a 40 inch stovetop, but then we thought we'd lose too much prep space on the other side, so we're happy with the decision to use the smaller one. Have fun doing your kitchen!

Hi allmarblehead. These floors are indeed character grade hickory -- 4 inch planks -- with a Minwax stain in Special Walnut.

I see that the paint on the cabinets is Misted Fern by BM. But I wanted to know what finish? - Is this an oil, in a matte finish or gloss? Also did you brush or spray the paint onto the cabinets?

I would think it's semi-gloss. Don't see a lot of shine but want it to be easy to keep clean.

Hi, finally responding to your note, thanks for your patience. It is semi-gloss and was applied with a brush. So far it has been easy to clean.

Thanks for the quick response. I decided to go with green cabinets and soapstone counters after seeing your photos. Our house is over 100 years old so I wanted the kitchen to blend with the rest of the house. But I'd like it to be energy efficient as well. LED lights usually look too bright white, but yours seem warmer. Are they CREE 2700K? How about under the cabinets? LED strips or pucks?

Under cabinets we have LED strips. I am not sure of the type of LEDs in the cans...but I do find them warmer than most. Some we have on dimmers which helps too.

You will love the green with soapstone. I too wanted something that would make sense with my house (1920s) and soapstone was definitely the best choice. It scratches and all but that just gives it the lived-in patina that I want. Plus oiling it makes most scratches invisible, and deeper ones you can use sandpaper on. And I love being able to put anything on it straight from the oven or stove.

Regarding the soapstone; I am loving the hand done edge finish. One finish I like more is called "leathered" finish. Probably a nice way to describe the process of abusing a perfectly good slab of stone.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

For Kravits, the biggest priority was maximizing space. Before the remodel, the kitchen had only two cabinets, two drawers, a space under the sink for storage. The room was also poorly organized, so Kravits enlisted the help of a friend and architect to redesign the kitchen.By emphasizing wide spaces between the sink and stove, and island and wall unit, the kitchen was easy to move around in and felt much less cramped. Cabinetry: Custom maple, painted Benjamin Moore Misted FernPulls: Satin Nickel by MeritKnobs: Satin Nickel from ColonialFridge: Samsung, French door
