Custom Home Planning Center
If your using mahogany or cherry be aware that solar exposure darken the floors substantially as they age in those area with direct sunlight. If you don't use an oil finish the plasticizers in the water based finishes are going to cloud in these areas as well.

Also ask if the wood is plantation grown and sustainably logged. You don't want to encourage clear cutting or slash and burn operations.

What is the color of the upper cabinets?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Yes, please, what is the paint color. I love this. Not too white, but rather a light khaki. Thanks!

Cox family, this would be a great choice for an island top, although we may want to consider the cooktop on the island instead. that way its closer to the sink and the cook can see through to the while working.
