Can you share the distance from the fridge to the island? - Beautiful space! I am building a house with a similar layout in the kitchen. I am concerned about the space between the fridge and the island. Do you find it functional? Thanks!

Thank you for your question ltlieb! The space between the fridge and island is approximately 3'-6". It's important to keep in mind the door swings of the refrigerator when determining the width of the space. Because this side of the island does not get as much traffic as the other side near the arched window, where there is a door way leading to the family entry, the circulation space is narrower. The other side of the island by the window is 5'-3" wide to allow for ample circulation through one of the main entry points of the kitchen. Generally speaking, it's a good idea to to leave about 3'-6"-4'-0" of space between countertops for convenience of use.

One clarification question on the smaller beams- does the 6 inches wide include the crown? If not, how large is the crown? Thanks!

No it does not. The crown projects out an additional 2- 3/4" from the 6" wide x 7" high decorative beam. The crown is 2-5/8" high.

The wood ceiling is a tongue and groove with "v" groove boards made of poplar, painted. The spacing you are seeing between the boards is around a 1/2" "V" of the boards. Beaded board could produce a similar approach. The spacing between the decorative beams was around 5' which felt appropriate proportionately for the room. They can be created with rough 2 x 6 or 8s with applied 1x with or without a beaded edge and a small crown to finish it off. Let us know if you have any questions or could use assistance!

Similar to a white subway tile. Simple and elegant. We have other photos of the kitchen if you look under our profile at the Villanova Residence.

If this is not subway tile, please tell me what it is. Deciding on my backsplash now and these tiles look more hand cut - natural than basic subway tiles
