Chenri - my guess is that this grout is a med gray grout. If you had white done, you may be able to save it by having the tile person add gray grout over the white grout. I was given this tip by someone at a tile store. Hope it helps!

White Cabinet Manufacturer - Hi,
I love this
Kitchen (the white cabinets, black Island, wood floors and lighting), and keep coming back to it again and again.
We currently have an Ikea beech colored Kitchen with beautiful Azul Brazilian granite that we want to keep, so are planning on changing to white cabinets with cobalt blue industrial lights and a Viking stove with Cobalt blue range door. We have a solid walnut floor. We want matt white, not glossy white cabinets.

Who makes these cabinets, and what would you call this style? We like shaker. The contractor who is doing other work in our home sells Dura Supreme, Showplace, Armstrong, and Shiloh. Do you know which would be the closest in style, including white paint? I understand they can be custom painted for a price, but perhaps the standard colors they use (I think Sherman Williams) will work.

Thanks.

I have those in my kitchen and was dubious about them as well... They are now my favorite 'go to' storage in the entire kitchen. One layer deep makes it incredibly fast, easy to find the right spoon, peeler, etc. Definitely would recommend including in any kitchen.

Are these subway tiles glossy or matt, white or ivory and who manufactured the ones used in this kitchen? I wanted to use Carrara marble but my husband prefers the plain white subway, although he likes ones with a beveled edge.

We had the same dilemna, and finally discovered the white macubus granite/quartzite which very closely resembles marble with its pronounced veining. Looks fantastic, and most people think it is marble.

Love the island in this kitchen too! While this is not one of our jobs, I would estimate it at being around 3' by 6'. Love how the cabinet is turned out on the end. Is it turned out on the other end as well? And does the cabinet in the center have access on both sides? More design details please!

I think 3 lights would look better than 2, but smaller in scale. I'd have recessed lighting for the other ceiling lighting. I don't like a room too busy. Pendants would be a nice focal pt.

Thanks Patricia, I'm truly flattered. The island is custom - designed to fit the needs of the client and the space it's in. The finish is a classic black laquered finish on Maple with a slight distressed finish. Check with your cabinet supplier about design options. You can also contact me directly for remote design services.

Rebekah,
Thanks for your reply. I just might do that. One question: we live in a converted clock factory in Brooklyn with a lot of industrial details, wood beams, exposed brick and pipes, do you think a farm sink would work? Or is it too countryish? We're trying to keep the look vintage, industrial, classic with elements similar to your kitchen. We love subway tiles and marble and classic detailing. I will let you know how our "homage" turns out! Thanks

In this kitchen the stainless and black combination of hardware works because of the combination of stainless (and black) appliances (including the smaller counter appliances), the black island, the stainless finish of the stools, the nickel (?) finish of the faucet, etc. It is about balancing the mixture of finishes. Also by having both finishes it gives the kitchen a more eclectic/lived in look. It is well designed, but with layers that help the kitchen from looking brand new. Gorgeous!

Yes, the island is painted black, and it's a factory finished paint so it's not really comparable to a store bought high-gloss, closer to a satin.

Hi there, thanks! I believe my client is still really happy with the design - no complaints. The tiler did a great job! Yes, the liner is a Vent-a-Hood, but other companies make them as well. I believe we ended up with cement board over 2x4's for the backing of the tile.

Granite doesn't need much care...Marble needs to be resealed regularly depending on use...once or twice year, but rarely do people do this.
Marble may chip, scratch and stain...so if you don't like the patina or distressed look, you're in for a rocky ride. I literally take sandpaper to mine when I chip the edges!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Industrial Strength Kitchens
The pendant lamps, aluminum stools and utilitarian white subway tiles with dark grout give a nod to industry.
Becky Harris added this to Furniture Favorites: Bar Stools
I am crazy about these French-designed, 1930's aluminum stools. So much so that my dining room has the matching cafe chairs.
Factory lights and metal shop stools inject a modern, masculine sensibility into this classic kitchen.
Cristin Priest {Simplified Bee} added this to Beautiful, Functional Kitchen Islands
Here is an example of a popular trend in kitchen design in which the island's cabinets color contrasts the perimeter cabinets. In this kitchen the island is painted a contrasting black, adding interest to the space.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Defining a Look: European Eclectic Kitchens
Show your kitchen wares behind glass-front cabinets. Don't be afraid to display your mismatched dishes, it's the stuff in a kitchen that makes a kitchen. This is also a good example of a less modern approach to keeping your wall cabinets all on one wall. Mixing metal finishes on the hardware and lighting is a good tip to remember when trying to achieve a European eclectic look.
Again we see the combination of black and white, here warmed up with wood floors and trim.
A contrasting island finish complements an all-white kitchen with black pendant lighting.
This kitchen is stunning for a host of reasons, not the least of which is its perfectly balanced use of dark colors in an otherwise white room. Spreading around those dark colors makes this island appear to be larger and, at the same time, expands the whole room. An island such as this is going to have activity going on all around it. The lighting needs to do its job while not creating a barrier. If you're lighting an area that people will stand around, the pendants should be high enough so that people can see each other, but no so high that those same people are blinded by light bulb glare.

There is also a stool version, which adds its own element of industrial chic to a kitchen island. Tip: Counter stools that can be tucked under your kitchen island or breakfast bar save floor space and visual space. The lines are so clean on this island that it lets us really admire the gorgeous counter top and pendants. Seats with high backs would not have allowed for this here.
Becky Harris added this to Modernizing Cottage Style
Try a vintage-modern mix. Some of the elements that give this room this style are cabinets reminiscent of bulter's pantry cabinetry, classic modern stools, subway tile, wood trim around windows and the light fixtures.
Here's another kitchen with industrial-style pendants over the island. But look at the sconces above the window in the background. With their swing-arm industrial styling, these sconces are a great alternative to track or recessed lighting.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Your Kitchen: Mix Wood and Painted Finishes
This home's existing window and door casing was such a showstopper that we couldn't help but have it milled to match in the kitchen. Occasionally in older homes you'll see the casing in the kitchen and bathrooms painted white, and this often solves many dilemmas when picking finishes, but in this home it just wasn't an option. There are so many windows in the kitchen and no wall cabinets on the window wall that the wood casing is almost a surrogate for wood cabinets. Again, the casing ties back to the flooring, completing the circle.
Kelly Porter added this to Choose an Unexpected Color for Your Trim
In the kitchen, many homeowners wonder if all the cabinets and trim should be the same color. The answer is no, especially if you want to accentuate a certain feature. In this photo, dark stained trim allows these terrific windows to pop. White trim would have only forced them into the background.
Beth Dotolo, ASID, RID, NCIDQ added this to Using White Marble: Hot Debate Over a Classic Beauty
In this photo gorgeous white marble sits atop the kitchen countertops. 2. What is your attitude? Are you the type of person that needs a product to look exactly as it did the day you purchased it? Patterson describes two different mentalities: the European attitude and the American attitude. “When you enter into a European building, you can walk on the stone floors that are centuries old. Here in America, everything is roped off. I think that Europeans live more casually and enjoy the patina created from use and aging, where as some Americans want everything a bit more pristine.” Neither is right or wrong, it’s just a matter of asking yourself what your mindset is.
10. The Tolix Stool: This cafe stool dates back to France in the 1930s. Its enduring style has never been more popular. See more French cafe seating in action
A contrasting island will always make a statement. A traditional kitchen with white cabinets suddenly becomes edgy and high-style with a black-based island. Black paint will mask scuffs in areas where feet come into contact with the wall — a great solution for areas with counter or bar stools!
Laura Fenton added this to Subway Tile Picks Up Gray Grout
Tile steps into center stage in this timeless kitchen designed by Rebekah Zaveloff. Here even the hood for the range is covered in subway tiles. The dark gray grout is in keeping with the room's many dark-hued accents.
The black pendants and wall sconces in this kitchen provide contrast to the white cabinets, countertops and tile. The pendants define the floating island, while the sconces define the windows and sink area. Both types of lighting highlight the dark grout on the walls and the black on the island.
Vintage Key elements: The light fixtures have a Parisian flea market look, and French café stools lend industrial style. Subway tile with gray grout is another vintage classic that blends the vent hood into the wall. Traditional hardware and wood trim finish off the look.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Pro Chefs Dish on Kitchens: Michael Symon Shares His Tastes
Q. What’s your favorite backsplash material?A. I'm a fan of classic subway tile — easy cleanup and timeless.Q. Your favorite countertop material by the range? For an island? For prepping? For baking?A. I like marble everywhere. It's easy to clean, holds up to heat and cold — durable. I know people worry about marble, but if you go to Europe, you see marble everywhere that's a bazillion years old, and it looks great. There's something about the way it patinas; the more it gets beat up, the better it looks, and not every material ages that way. Same with old pewter bars. They're gorgeous with rings and marks all over them.
Becky Harris added this to Brew a Café Look at Home
Think beyond can lights. Part of the ambience of the coffeehouse is soft lighting and unique fixtures. In this kitchen schoolhouse-style ceiling lights, swing-arm sconces and industrial pendant lights all add to the vintage modern style.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to How to Keep Your White Kitchen White
White tiles with white grout? Really? I officially nominate you for the Glutton for Punishment award. Here’s the deal: The cleaner your white tiles, the grubbier the grout will appear, so this is an important part of cleaning your white kitchen. Writer Tami Mason offers this remedy: Combine baking soda and vinegar with water to create a paste. Pour a little vinegar into a spray bottle. Apply the paste to the grout and then spray a light coat of vinegar onto the paste. Scrub with a scouring pad or toothbrush and rinse thoroughly. Honestly, I consider sealing the grout an absolute no-brainer. Don’t even contemplate living with unsealed grout.
Sheila Schmitz added this to Give Your Kitchen a Café Vibe
Consider subway tiles. As practical as they are fashionable, subway tiles have long been used in commercial kitchens and cafés. They look the part and are easy to clean.
