A Big Island traditional-kitchen

A Big Island

The original owners of this house had long surpassed the original kitchens layout and usefulness. 30 years and the changing needs of a kitchen had finally caught up with this otherwise impressive home. The biggest problem with the old kitchen was a large peninsula that angled out into the center of the room, virtually cutting off the breakfast nook from the room and making getting into the pantry and fridge very inefficient.
The new kitchen design uses the long length of the room to it's advantage, by allowing for an extended island which connected the breakfast nook to the kitchen making it all flow together. At just over 11 feet long the homeowner initially had some serious doubts about the proposed islands size, but after some measuring and remeasuring(and some coaxing) she was convinced it would work. And now that it's all done, she couldn't be happier! (and that makes us happy)

Thanks for your question.
We don't have all the specifics on this flooring product as the homeowner bought it themselves and had their own installer put it in. We do know that it was an engineered hardwood and want to say walnut, but we couldn't swear to that.
We will reach out to our client and see if they still have they product info and if so, we'll post it in our follow-up. Stay tuned.

This tile was directly purchased by the homeowner, so we don't have the exact information on it. We do remember that it is a deeply beveled, travertine field tile with little, square, 1"x1" copper accent tiles.

We'd like to apologize for the length of time in which it took us to respond to this question. We we're never notified by Houzz that it was asked, until receiving an email a few days ago telling us we had some unanswered questions.

This granite was called Golden Persia.
I think it's important to mention that not every granite fabricator will call it the same thing. Granite selection is a decision made from the heart, not by the name of the stone. If you see one you really like, write it down; if you see one you LOVE, put a deposit on it or risk never finding it again.
Lets me know if I you have any other questions or if I can help you with anything else.
