Microhouse fremont cottage - reclaimed fir cabinets

Moving the cabinet uppers to one pantry wall allowed us to open up to the outside which makes the kitchen feel more spacious.

Love the fir cabinets. This is the look we are going for. - What kind of finish/oil did you use?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
I really like working with tung oil because it lets the wood's natural beauty shine.

Did you stain the fir with anything or is it just pure tung oil? We are noticed that the fir can be of really different hues and look striped; used some fir for a ceiling and are worried that our cabinets might look striped if we don't homogenize all the variability with a stain. Your cabinets all seem to be of a similar hue.

What color grout did you use with the Ann Sacks Spiced Ginger tile?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

All of the cabinets in the kitchen were custom designed by Parker and Sidhu. Although stylistically they were inspired by famed architecture firm Greene and Greene, they also put a huge emphasis on reclaimed materials. "Using reclaimed woods saved on material costs, but added a lot of time," Parker says. Reclaimed fir was used for the cabinetry, shelving and window frames. The flooring is made of salvaged oak topnail, which blends with the rest of the home. Where reclaimed materials weren't used, the couple opted for hard-wearing materials such as the honed black granite countertops and the backsplash from the Ann Sacks Element series.
Ivon Street Studio added this to Ecofriendly Kitchen: Healthier Kitchen Cabinets
Salvaged wood. The most sustainable option, salvaged wood delivers richness and personality with its history. Seek out wood with a story that you will enjoy sharing with its admirers. This sunny kitchen is outfitted with salvaged Douglas fir cabinets built onsite.
