White Kitchen, Stained Island & Pantry with Bianco Antico Granite

This kitchen was a fun project. The cabinets were painted with Benjamin Moore Cloud White, they were original builder grade dark oak. We added all the trim. The range is by Capital and the hood is Viking. The backsplash sets this kitchen apart from others, it was the perfect icing on the cake for us. It was wonin a contest from Mission Stone and Tile. It is beveled arabesque tile, each one is individually set in place and then grouted.

I love the juxtaposition of the crystal chandeliers with the very modern stainless appliances.

This kitchen was featured in Better Homes and Gardens' Special Interest Publication: Real Life Kitchens & Baths Summer 2012

Island stain - Can you please tell me what color the stain is on the island? I like that the granite works with both white and dark. Also, what kind of wood is the island made of? Thank you!

The island cabinetry is from Kraftmaid. It is their Peppercorn stain on cherry wood.

Wow! You are quick! Thank you so much! I am doing a kitchen remodel, and I'd like to use bianco antico granite with white cabinets, but need something to tone down the brightness on a side cabinet, and this looks perfect!

The cork flooring is from US Floors. It is the Natural Cork, New Dimensions. We put down the color Corte. It's available at a lot of locations, we purchased ours from an online dealer who was having a sale.

How did you paint the builder grade oak cabinets?

Karen Viscito Interiors
First the doors and drawers are removed. Sand lightly, wash with TSP, let dry. Next step was to use a brushable wood filler (Pore-o-Pac). Follow the directions, you may need to do this several times with sanding between each coat. This elimiates the grain. We painted with oil based Ben Moore primers and paint, therefore the filler was also oil based. I did use a roller for the primer and paint, followed by brushing it out so there would be no puddles. It is hard to tell in these photos, but the finish is great, it feels smooth and it is very durable. Remember, oil based white paints will yellow, so plan accordingly when choosing your color. It is a very labor intensive process, but it is worth taking your time and doing it right.

I just had my builder grade oak painted Cloud White. They look 110% better. I hired a professional cabinet painter to do it. He did a fantastic job. It would have taken me weeks to do it on my own and it wouldn't have turned out as good. He sanded, primed - with a special primer, and spray painted. I'm sooooo happy and for a fraction of the cost of new doors/cabinets.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Kitchen Workbook: Planning Your Remodel's Scope of Work
Some kitchen remodel considerations:Are you remodeling your kitchen within the existing footprint? Do you want to relocate the sink or range, which would mean moving the plumbing or gas lines? Are you planning on opening up to another room and you aren't sure if you have a load-bearing wall? This might require structural work and unforeseen costs. With new construction, you might have already heard prices referred to as the cost per square foot, but this formula rarely works with remodeling. Every home has unique conditions due to age, construction type (masonry versus frame, for example) and layout.Detailed pricing information up front will help you meet your budget. Where to start? Here are a few suggestions.
