Farmhouse kitchen

Simple, clean, and compact, this kitchen packs efficiency and functional flow into a modestly-sized area. The width of the island allows independent task work on all four sides, and with the length provides the equivalent of twenty four feet of linear counter. Built-in pantry cabinetry just a few steps away provides an additional eighteen linear feet of floor to ceiling storage.

Regarding paint schemes? Which colors? - Amazing house and project. In the kitchen it looks like Stone Gray for the walls, but are the bottom and top cabinets different whites?

Thanks! Unfortunately I do not have the paint color information for this project. Regarding the cabinetry: it is all the same color.. just used natural light in this photo, so this may account for the seeming difference in tone between the upper and lower cabinets.

Love the lighting over the island, where did it come from? Thanks!

Sorry, I no longer have a record of this light's origin. Given that this home was built several years ago this particular light fixture may no longer exist. However in searching online, under "island light nickel two", there are a few available fixtures out there that look fairly similar to this one.

If Caesarstone it would be Jet Black (3100). If Silestone it would be Night Mist or Tebas Black.

Are the wall cabinets transom or stacked? what are the width and height of the cabinets next to the hood? - Your answer will be very helpful for me to decide what to do with my kitchen:) Thank you,

Madson Design
The cabinet doors on either side of the hood are approximately 15" wide. The kitchen has a 9' ceiling, so the height of the upper cabinets (total) is 4'-6".

Hi I love this kitchen. I was wondering what the paint colour was called. I was also wondering if these cupboards are brillant white or off white. Can you tell me what material your your counter tops are. Thanks again

Try Stone Gray by Olympic Paints. The cabinets appear to be a true white.

The depth of field of the photo makes it look really close, but minimum recommended distance is 36". Though 42" is better.

The actual distance is 48" on both sides.

So these cabinets - the doors make up the front face of the cabinets, they're not inset. I think this type of door gives you the most internal space (doesn't waste a ton of space between cabinet boxes). Is that true?
