This is a lovely room I like the way that you have some color contrast with the floor and counter tops. It is subtle, but it keeps it from being all white.

Thanks for your interest. No, there is no leg on the curved side of the island. The wood "apron" apron is cantilevered and supports the stone. The curve is made of layers of bent plywood. The curved mouldings are by Flextrim or similar.

Thanks for your comment. If the room doesn't get much natural light, its best to paint it a color with a fair amount of pigment. It's completely counter intuitive, but small rooms are better with a bold color. What that color is depends on your taste of course. I always suggest people use the colors they like to wear, and usually look good in, for their home decor.

CabinetCoat by Inselx , owned by Benjamin Moore is a great urethane paint for cabinets. It does not require any primer or sanding over varnished cabinets. Just make sure the cabinets are very clean & free of any greasy residue. This paint is self-leveling and best applied with either a foam roller or foam brushes. 2 coats required with a mild sanding with a high count sandpaper between coats. Dries in 1 hour, can apply 2nd coat in 6 hrs, but best to wait 24 hrs. I painted cabinets 9 years ago & a banister 12 years ago, both look very professional with a hard finish similar to a factory applied finish. After all this time still look like new and washes well.

Cooktop - Do you have ventilation for your cooktop? If so, do you ever USE it!?!? I am contemplating putting our cooktop on our island like you have here. I really like what you have done here...

I would HIGHLY recommend some sort of ventilation. Even if, for some strange reason, your local/municipal building code allows you to get away without putting one in. Preferably, an Island overhead hood fan, or at least the (less efficient) popup downdraft ventilation system. Just be careful to select one that will work with your cooktop technology (ESPECIALLY) if it's a gas cooktop.

Larissa, Thanks for your nice comments. This cooktop has down draft ventilation. I believe the homeowner uses it regularly. I would not recommend installing a stove or cooktop without some kind of ventilation.

MJM, I know this isn't exactly the type of answer you're looking for, but we specialize in custom furniture and would love to work with you in designing a bar stool that emulates this, or is perhaps even better. Best of luck, and please dont hesitate to contact us.

I'm thinking of ordering this type of floor very soon. Do you think that it is too light, or not enough contrast with the light cabinets? Thank you

Thanks for your interest. I believe it was a stainless steel sink. However I no longer have the information on manufacturer or size.

We designed all of the cabinetry and millwork, and all was custom built by the contractor, Shaw Builders.

cabinets in log home - Have a rustic log home w/ small kitchen and no upper cabinets. How can we hang these while maintaining the integrity of the logs?

Also you might want to consider open shelves rather than upper cabinets. With open shelves you will still see the logs behind your dishes/glassware. It might be a way to keep that rustic feel.

Thanks to both of you. I'll refine my search. The house is already pretty rustic so we might be ok with covering the logs in the kitchen but open shelving is a good idea. Maybe glass fronted cabinets or a combination. It will be an interesting challenge since the kitchen is quite small. Thanks again!

Honed is a dull finish, correct? Seems to be a pretty bright refection on the island, or can honed sometimes be shiny?

Thanks for your interest! Yes honed is a duller finish. You're right the surface does look shiny. It may be from the photographer's lights...or it may be that the granite is polished after all. Sorry, I don't really remember, this project was completed over 10 years ago.
All the best,
Jennifer

Are you aware of problems with maple floors in waterfront locations? - We are redoing a home on the coast of Cape Cod. We love the clean look of maple floors (wanted to avoid oak-too busy). Our contractor told us that his supplier and installer would not stand behind maple floors in high moisture areas due to how much maple can expand and contract. Wondering if you are aware of that and if so if you have suggestions of other wood species or how to get the look of this house (even if we end up using oak). Thanks in advance.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

3. Arched kitchen entryway. Open, clean and full of light, this kitchen has large windows and a patio view that made Houzzers fall in love with it. The arched entryway in particular was a subtle touch that made all the difference.
