Love the placement of the cooktop and the details of the millwork. - I'm intrigued by the placement of the cooktop and hood. Could you describe what you did with the corner to get this effect? I have a similar situation with a big window and I think it would be prettier to do this rather than have the upper cabinet end flush to the corner. Many thanks. . .

Thank you for your response. We tried to make it work but it is giving up too much space in relation to the placement of the kitchen sink. Your design did inspire me, in working with my designer, to ask that the beautiful details of the millwork in that corner and around the windows and French door be incorporated into the design of my new kitchen. Thanks for sharing this beautiful kitchen! : )

Not a question, a comment - This has got to be one of the loveliest white kitchens I've seen. Clean and classic but the details, like the countertop and the backsplash choices, added to the light from all those beautiful windows, make it world class. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Sharon

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to 12 Ways to Have a Nicer Kitchen This Year
Create an accent wall. It could be a backsplash, the wall behind the kitchen table or the space above the sink — wherever you feel could use a splash of color or pattern. Achieve it via tiles, paint or wallpaper, and transform the personality of your kitchen.
Jennifer Ott Design added this to Kitchen Color: 15 Beautiful Blue Backsplashes
I’m not sure what I’m drawn to most in this kitchen, the tall wall of windows or the gorgeous stone mosaic backsplash. This backsplash tile is a fantastic alternative to ubiquitous white ceramic or marble subway tiles for a traditional kitchen.Backsplash: Celestial Starry Blue polished mosaic tile from Artistic Tile
Karen Egly-Thompson added this to Mosaic Tile Designs That’ll Thrill You to Bits
Premade A mesh-mounted premade mosaic design doesn’t require AutoCAD drawings or the longer lead time required for a bespoke handmade mosaic. This mesh-mounted polished natural stone by Artistic Tile adds pattern and texture to a kitchen backsplash and stove hood.
