Were the extra long floating shelves custom made? - The three extra long floating shelves appear to be strong. I was wondering about how they are constructed.

How did you mount the cabinets? - Any special framing in the wall involved? Did you beef up the cabinets/add extra fasteners? Are the undersides of the cabinets finished? (ie bottom facing floor)

Farwest -

Yes, there is plywood blocking in the wall, and there are extra fasteners etc, although I don't remember the specific details. The bottoms are not finished.

Can you please share the type of wood used for kitchen cabinets? - I LOVE your house, especially the wood used inside and how the combinations make the house feel so light and perfect. We are in the process of building a house in Seattle, and I want it to have the same feel, so I would truly appreciate your help with the cabinets, especially color and kind of wood. Thank you so much!

Thank you! The kitchen cabinets are walnut. The floors are white oak, but they were given a grey wash before they were sealed.

Random...yes. But no...sorry, I'm not a physical therapist. LOL. I'm a travel agent, we moved full time to Sag Harbor from the city 6 years ago, our daughter is a senior at Ross, and we love living out here.By the seems like there are a LOT of architects in our neck of the woods! all the best...

Thanks Jeff. Had not heard of Glassos before. Shall do some investigating here in Australia and see what I come up with. Appreciate your reply. Cheers, Rebecca

Can you use Glassos for back splash as well? How does this compare with other stones in terms of price? Thank you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The kitchen's open floor plan, unadorned windows, and floating cabinets and shelves, plus the clean, simple lines of the décor, enlarge the space visually.
The 4 Things Most Buyers Want in a Kitchen1. QualityThe number of cabinets you have is not as important as the quality of the cabinetry. The fewer cabinets you add to your kitchen renovation, the less expensive it will be. Choose quality over quantity. Do: Choose quality hinges and runners, including soft-close drawers, and custom-made cabinetry. Don't: Go for large fillers and ill-fitted modular cabinetry. Keep the cost down by keeping the cabinet count down. Design the kitchen layout to keep it light, bright and with an open plan, without using tons of cabinets.
