Evergreen Road Residence Kitchen 2

Spice and condiment rollouts above the stove are designed for easy access while cooking. The cabinets flanking the stove provide vertical pantry storage.

An inline blower for the range was mounted in the adjacent garage attic and vents it out the roof. The result is a very quiet fan taking care of the homeowners’ ventilation needs and meeting their desire for diminished noise.

For the backsplash, marble tiles and listellos were carefully designed to create an arched top niche that mirrors the shape of the range hood opening. Niche tiles were intentionally arranged in a different pattern to delineate it from the running bond pattern used on the rest of the backsplash. Three hand-painted and fired tiles created by the homeowner are incorporated into the niche. Niche doubles as a focal point and as a convenient place to store cooking oils and condiments.

The raised panel, French blue cabinets are finished with a dark brown glazing. These are full overlay doors and drawers, constructed with high precision to maintain a 1/8” gap between every side of a door and drawer.

This is a custom blended color using a catalyzed finished applied by my cabinetmaker and then highlighted with a chocolate glaze and sealed with a clear topcoat. My homeowner found a picture in a magazine and we made several samples for her. If you are interested in getting this color sprayed onto your cabinets contact a cabinetmaker that has experience with finishing and have them mix samples for you to choose from. You can also make it easy for them and go to a paint store and pick a paint chip. The cabinetmaker will be able to match the color in their finish.

If you are doing it yourself, be aware that painting the cabinets with latex or oil paint on cabinets is not nearly as durable as the catalyzed finish applied by a cabinetmaker. Also if you are painting an open grain wood like oak, elm or hickory, the grain will show through. You can use a high build primer but the cost of labor easily exceeds a new door. A maple or birch door will show no grain. If you are finishing existing cabinets it is super important to clean the cabinets of all grease and other debris and then sanding them to ensure a good bond before you prime and finish them.

Best of luck.
