Medium brown cabinets - glazed cream island and hood??? - I am having second thoughts about combining med brown cabinets and a glazed cream hood and island. Most of the pictures that I see have the reverse, light cabinets with a darker island and hood. The cabinets and island are also perpendicular to each other which is anotther difference I notice in the photos and in our layout. I am just not sure how it will look in a 'small' wall of cabinets (that then wrap around into a "U" shape) to have the hood the lighter color. Any thoughts to share? I love your work. »
Has anyone had any trouble with inset cabinet doors and drawers not fitting properly over time. We are building a new home and considering them for our new kitchen because we love the classic look. My concern is that as the house settles, the doors and drawers will start to "stick". Thanks for any advice! »
Hello, we're trying to decide between cherry or walnut wood counter for our island. Does your cherry have a lot of red in it? How would you describe the color? It looks beautiful and just what we're looking for in these pictures, but it's hard to tell for sure. Does the cherry have a lot of color variation? Thanks so much! This will be the centerpiece of our kitchen and I want to get it right. :) »
Does anyone know if wood counter tops are stained, or does the color come from the type of wood. We want to do a dark wood counter top on our island- maybe a little darker than this picture because we want it to be close in color to our dark hardwood floors. Also, how do they hold up. Is there a better type wood to use?
Thank you! »
12. We saw a lot of beautiful butcher block islands this year, just like the one in this kitchen that made the top-20 list. Not only is this a functional countertop surface, but it'll wear wonderfully with age. We love how it warms up this space and contrasts with the white cabinetry and black counters.
