Classic White Perfectly Balanced by Creams and Blues

White cabinetry is always classic and this beautiful remodel completed in Durham is no exception. The hardwood floors run throughout the downstairs, tying the formal dining room, breakfast room, and living room all together. The soft cream walls offset the Blue Pearl granite countertops and white cabinets, making the space both inviting and elegant. Double islands allow guests to enjoy a nice glass of wine and a seat right in the kitchen while allowing the homeowners their own prep-island at the same time. The homeowners requested a kitchen built for entertaining for family and friends and this kitchen does not disappoint.

Thanks Stephanie for your questions. It really depends on the size of your space are your particular conditions. Sometimes 15" wall cabinets are fine and sometimes not. It also depends on what type of cabinets you are using, whether there is a face frame or they are frameless, and the size of the rest of the cabinets in the kitchen. We usually try to balance wall cabinets left and right of a hood and left and right of a window. Sometimes we do this by doing the same size cabinets on each side and sometimes by doing cabinets that have the same size doors (for example one side 15" wide and one side 30" wide to create a balanced look). It's very difficult to know exactly what will work for you without knowing more about the project. Thanks!

Thanks so much Sue! The client/builder specified those so I am unfortunately not sure what we used for this installation.

We purchased the tile from Best Tile here in Durham. We used White Venatino 3" x 6" (approximately) Honed Marble for the field tile with a combination of Vista ice Blend Harlequin Mosaic tile, Bellevue Crown Evening Sky 2.5" x 8" (approximately), and Bellevue Dome Evening Sky 3/4" x 8" (approximately) for the accents. Thanks!

Thanks for your question! The hardware on this project is satin nickel. The client selected the hardware themselves to coordinate with the plumbing fixtures and lighting that was selected for the project. I believe the hardware is the Candler Collection from Amerock - http://amerock.com/collections/candler-collection.html?attr_collection=Candler&attr_finish=Antique+Silver&p=3

Blue Pearl Granite with white countertops. Gorgeous! Would bring in more blue for you, but it would not be my first choice for resale as some people might see it as "blue". Take a look at it, though, it might not be so blue in person.
