Black Residence Kitchen

The Blacks walked into the office while we were in the middle of some project where we were setting things on fire, blowing glass and skateboarding…..and they still somehow let us design + build the interior of there amazing house located in St Petersburg Florida. Casual coastal living is promoted with a kitchen you’d find in nantucket- where grey woods and white marble fill the space, while the master bath puts you in Paris- with white subway, dark black walnut cabinetry and thick white concrete on top.

Thank you, just gorgeous. My contractor wants my cabinet choice and I wanted to get the stain as close as I can to this.

If they are just stained, you could apply a dye to it. Ultimately, stain is a dye, so this would only work if you are going darker. However, if there is a clear coat sealer over the stain, which is more than likely the case, it won't take the dye, or stain for that matter. However, you could sand the current clear coat finish as if you were going to apply another coat of clear and then "tint" the clear coat with a dye or stain. I hope this helps and best of luck to you!!

T2THES DESIGN + BUILD - that is a simple idea I didn't even think of. And that would also solve another issue, which is that our cooktop is downdraft, with a very weak fan, and it is in a small island. I don't like it there. I like a perimeter cooktop with a strong hood fan. I had read that you couldn't put heat sources near thermofoil, which is why I had an island cooktop. So it would seem you just solved 2 problems for me and I am very thankful that you took the time to give my post some thought and respond. You are very kind! Thanks so very much!

I would love to hear from the builders if they are willing to share how they achieved this.
I assume from the article it is an aniline dye. What kind of wood ... what color die?
Very beautiful!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to Pro Finishing Secret: Aniline Dye for Wood
How to Use ItAniline dye is sold in powder form, to be mixed with water, alcohol or both for application. Many professionals use water-soluble dyes for overall color, because they go on evenly and maintain their integrity well; alcohol-based versions dry faster but don't hold their color as reliably. Dye powders come with instructions for mixing amounts and methods. You can tinker with the color by adding a little more to intensify it or a little less to lighten it. Apply the dye to unsealed wood with a brush, a foam applicator or a sponge. You'll probably need two to three coats unless you want the color to be very sheer. Allow at least 12 hours for drying between coats. Apply a clear sealer as a finish coat to preserve the dye and add shine. Tip: Wear rubber or latex gloves to prevent dyed hands as you work.

I have used the aniline-mix with water variety years ago when I was building custom furniture. Water will tend to raise the grain, so a light sanding with very fine sandpaper (400-600) between coats is advisable. If you wish a very dark color, mix strong, and more multiple layers may be required. These dyes must be sealed. An extraordinary product is the Liquitex Soluvar Varnish...actually an artist's product made for coating both oil as well as acrylic based paintings. Permanent, non-yellowing, flexible, and water resistant when dry. Best thing, it also comes in a matte, and can be thinned w/mineral spirits to the desired matte-ness. Actually used a similar product by Daniel Smith for kitchen cabinets. I swear by both products...and yes aniline dyes can be remarkable, but to kshotwell...I, personally, would steer away from use on home exterior projects. It is a labor intensive means to an end, but worth it on select projects.
