Cooking Center

The homeowners were eager to expand their living space to accommodate their family's needs for entertaining, hanging out & enjoying dinners together. They also desired to update the decor to match the rest of their beautiful home.

To create a more connected space, walls were removed and doorways relocated. Mom's office was tucked into a "hide-away" room in the corner.

A clean, neutral palette creates a peaceful space and allows for the owners to showcase their colorful art. Windows along most of the addition and ceiling sola-tubes fill the new space with wonderful natural light.

Cupboard Colour...would love to know the exact colour of the cupboards - HI Michelle, I have the exact countertop and I think i am going to use white backspash as well. Would you share the exact colour of the cupboards? Thanks. It's a beautiful kitchen I am totally copying :)

Thank you for your question. The cabinet color was a standard white from the makers line. I would suggest looking at whites in your space to see what you prefer. Whites are notorious for changing in various lights and around other colors.
Best of luck!

Microwave - Would love to know who makes the microwave and if that cabinet is a standard 12" wall cabinet? If so, is the microwave really only 12" deep? Greatly appreciate your time.

I recall this microwave being a Viking and approximately 13" deep. Your local appliance store should be able to help you locate one that is best for your project. Good luck.

Thank you for your question. The hardware on this project was sourced from a local showroom. I believe is was from Top Knobs

Thank you for your questions!
The hood is a Viking. (Model VWH3610SS) Yes, it is vented out. The panel above it is decorative.

Mckoy - I am thinking of installing the same microwave set-up and our cabinets are going to be 12in deep - did you end up going ahead with your install? If so, were your cabinets only 12in deep? I want to do the surround kit as well and I don't mind the microwave sticking out a little bit, but not 4in like the 16in installation instructions say. Any info would be appreciated!

So sorry...just saw this. We did use a 12" cabinet. The face of the mirco was flush with the frame of the cabinet. We purchased a 12" deep microwave (believe it was a GE mentioned above). It's working just fine. I was a little worried about airflow around the micro because we trimmed around it with wood vs the trim kit to get that flush look...but, so far so good. You should be fine.
