By using multiple textures, the overwhelming wall of brick was softened and integrated into the space. Note the live edge on the slab of elm, the yarn-like texture in the glass, the perforated stainless steel panels in many doors, and the 1"-square glass tiles in the backsplash. The Hi-Definition laminate also has a textured face. The pattern in the floor tile relates to the hardwood flooring in the adjacent rooms. The island top is Richlite.

Can you tell us how you attached the elm slab to the existing counter?

This photo shows three short lengths of SS tubing between the PaperStone counter and the recycled elm counter above. We ran lag bolts up from below, through the PaperStone counter (through oversized holes to allow for expansion/contraction), using washers to spread out the stress. Another lag bolt ran through the post into the end of the block. That was key to preventing the top from tipping at the stool end! In the end, we had four points of suspension. The SS tubing also gave us a raceway through which we could run power to the lighting that's routed into the underside. You can read a Trends magazine article about this kitchen on my website (#16) and see another kitchen with a live-edge counter in maple (#23). Go to the Photo Tour. www.spaceplanner.com

Richard, what supplier did you go through to get the elm? Was it pre-cut or custom-fabricated? We offer wood/butcher block tops but this piece is beautiful! We're currently trying to offer more sustainable and recycled products, having something like this would be amazing. Any details would be appreciated.

Debra, you can usually get a closeup of any picture by holding down the control key and the + at the same time. To reduce it back to normal, control and -. I tried it on this pic and it worked.

I used Wilsonart's "Crystalline Iris" which is one of their Hi-Definition laminates. The face of the laminate has a texture like frozen ice. The island countertop is recycled elm with a live edge; the lower counter is "Mocha" Paperstone. Other counters are granite. July 24, 2012 at 8:43AM Like
