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.

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!
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Funny - I wanted to ask the same thing! I have searched island lighting and found a few things simular - but this one would be perfect for my new kitchen redo!

Good luck! There are a lot of lighting suppliers out there, so hopefully you can find one that is pretty close!

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,
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
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".

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?
