Cabinets are MDF fronts, professionally spray-finished, on veneer-core plywood carcasses.

See comment above. The glass was cut and tempered by a local glass shop with pencil-round edges. I mounted them with standard glass hinges from a hardware store, and they're kept shut by little neodymium magnets I siliconed onto the glass.

I don't have those numbers anymore (there were three, verrry subtle difference between them). But color perception being what it is, you'd be better off mocking up samples that you like on site, under different lighting conditions, than trusting what comes across on your computer display.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Gainer and his wife have two young daughters, so kid friendliness was important. "Keeping them on stools at the counter is far easier than trying to monitor the mess at the table, and they like it better there too," he says.Oven: Miele; wall sink: Elkay; faucets: ChicagoMore: How to Remodel Your Kitchen | More Kitchens of the Week
The basics: Recycled paper countertops are composed of postconsumer wastepaper, nonpetroleum-based resins and pigments. This mix is heated and compressed into a dense, monolithic slab with a feel that's often compared to a warm, soft stone — like soapstone. The primary manufacturers, PaperStone, Richlite, ShetkaStone and Kliptech, all offer several colors, though the material typically is available only in medium to dark hues, all in a smart-looking matte finish.Cost: $40 to $80 per square foot installed.
The layout. Reminiscent of a Victorian kitchen, this kitchen has a central workspace, plain cupboards at the base level and open upper shelving. Functional, efficient and designed for a busy cook, the modern space still feels Victorian. Traditional moldings around the window and the painted wooden backsplashes and units all give it Victorian style.
CountertopsYour countertops get intimate with your food, so they should provide a healthy surface for chopping and preparing. A number of environmentally sensitive options have surfaced over the past decade, but some raise indoor-air-quality concerns. Recycled glass, or terrazzo, is gorgeous but often set in a petroleum-derived epoxy or cement substrate that can off-gas hormone-disrupting phthalates into your kitchen. Granite, a standard in higher-end homes during the past decade, can emit radon. The good news is, many of the environmentally friendly options on the market today, such as sunflower seed and wheat composite boards, are made using nontoxic, formaldehyde-free adhesives. Ask questions and do your homework before choosing a countertop material. A few things to consider:Ask the countertop manufacturer and installer about what kind of epoxy and adhesive the surface is made from and what will be used for installation. Avoid formaldehyde-based glues.Consider maintenance. Can you clean the surface easily with warm water? Can you oil and polish it with natural, nontoxic products? Look for Greenguard certification, which means the countertop material has been proven to have low chemical emissions.Concrete countertops are popular, and cement made from fly ash (a waste material from the coal-burning industry) is a fine environmental alternative. Researchers are concerned, however, that fly ash concrete can emit radon, a dangerous gas that can cause lung cancer. It’s probably best to save this material for outdoor spaces.Seal stone surfaces using water-based, low-odor Safecoat MexeSeal instead of chemical-laden traditional sealants. Be wary of any sealant that warns you to keep children and pets away while you apply it (most of them do).Suggestions for ecofriendly kitchen countertops
