What is the edge and corners of the counter? - I am getting a new counter and they are asking me if I want the corners squared or rounded. I'm not sure if they mean eased or really rounded. I like what I see in this picture. Can you tell me the cut of this counter?

They are 3 inches squared with eased corners. This is one of my favorite proportions.

The cabinets were custom fabricated in by a local cabinetmaker from vertical grain cherry.

Cabinet doors next to range hood - How are these glass doors made to not bang into the stainless steel hood when opened? It's a beautiful look, but i have the same problem in my new kitchen.

I didn't factor that into my design to be honest. I think we attached clear plastic bumpers on the sides of the hood. Also, my clients are careful. ;-) - Mark.

Mark I actually did the same thing... clear plastic bumpers on edge of hood. You can't even see them, and we don't swing the doors open carelessly, so it's been a year and absolutely no problem.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Then there's sneaky, functional, task-oriented placement. I'm a huge fan of small-to-medium size flat panels worked into kitchens. Keeping them off the countertop is key; either mount them to the bottom of your cabinets or have a custom space cut out for them within upper cabinetry. You can stay entertained while prepping food, then relax with company to enjoy your meal. Guess who watches TV with pretty much every meal he enjoys? Me.
