Classic White Kitchen

In the design stages many details were incorporated in this classic kitchen to give it dimension since the surround cabinets, counters and backsplash were white. Polished nickel plumbing, hardware and custom grilles on feature cabinets along with the island pendants add shine, while finer details such as inset doors, furniture kicks on non-working areas and lofty crown details add a layering effect in the millwork.

It looks like a satin finish. Matte would be more muted.

Walnut stain over Oak is always a great idea. The best of both worlds.

My opinion is that as a homeowner you can ask your installer to make as many samples as you want. Thats part of the service involved. I've had clients ask their installer for a dozen samples before.

Floor/backslash - This kitchen is beautiful and elegant! I am looking for this type of backsplash so the Calcutta looks like it may work with my new kitchen.

Hi there! All of the doors are inset with a raised panel. The smaller drawer fronts are slab fronts and the pullouts by the range have an applied molding to the face of them to add the dimension we were looking for around the hood area. I hope this helps!

That floor is really pretty. Your installer did an excellent job. White Oak is the best oak for staining. Many of our clients have decided on darker walnut style stains over white oak in order to enjoy the hardness of oak while also enjoying the darker color.

Love your kitchen design, so much so it was my inspirational photo I used for mine. I missed the mark when I installed Bianco carerrera marble, it's pulling too much blue. When buying this callacatta marble any lessons I need to know if I decide to remove it?

Hi there! So nice to hear this was inspirational to you in your own renovation. Carrera marble does have a definitively blue undertone whereas the Calacatta Gold is much warmer with subtle caramel, amber and mushroom hues. Either are beautiful but definitely present a different feel overall. Changing it should not be an impossible challenge if you have the right group of stone specialists to oversee its replacement. Good luck!

I went with creamy white by Sherwin Williams and they put in my sink today (which is being switch out bc too shallow) but I'm a bit panicked that the white sink makes my cabinet and trim color look not a crisp white. I really don't want to go with an off white sink. Do you suggest repainting with a less creamy white or just see how it comes together? Doing a really like quartz counter and Calcutta marble backsplash.

Counter Island Widths - Sorry to bug you with this question because it has already been partially answered and hashed over on the net. I'd like an answer from a real designer. The 4 feet intra-counter measurement. Is that between the protruded parts, or back to the main counter. I am working on a plan for our kitchen and we will not have any counters that 'stick' out, so I would like the know the true width without any protrusions. I have read anywhere between 36 and 50 inches so it is confusing. I want it to feel 'normal' if you know what I mean. Our kitchen is 16 feet x 18 feet (medium size) with a pass through on one side. My main appliances will be in an L shape and the island is approx. 50 x 75 inches. Also, I must say, you are one of the nicest, and prettiest, contributors to Houzz. I have read through you answers and you just really give it your all. Thanks for helping all of us out here trying to get things right. If you lived closer I would hire you.

Thank you for your inquiry. There are really countless possibilities with a white kitchen for a countertop selection. The main questions you should be considering when making a selection are: 1) Your budget and how much money you would like to allocate to your countertops. There are so many price points so creating a cap for yourself can help weed out things that might exceed what you are willing to spend. 2) Lifestyle needs that may drive using an alternative options such as a quartz or marble (this kitchen is shown with a marble countertop). Consider how you will be using this kitchen and whether factors such as children or high traffic could rule out options that might not be conducive to your needs. 3) Color palette. If you are wanting a more monochromatic look such as this or would like to add more color into your scheme, your countertops provide a wonderful opportunity to do that in combination with your backsplash. I hope this helps in guiding you to make a fabulous selection for your new kitchen. Follow House of L on Houzz to see all of our new projects and updates!

We are doing something similar to this, and I have a question. 1) We are opening up a wall between our kitchen and dining room. Our kitchen island is only 24" deep. Do you think that we can put lights over our table in the soon to be opened dining area, and not put any above our island? We were afraid of it looking crowded. Your expert opinion would be greatly appreciated! Beautiful kitchen!!

Hi there! What an exciting time for you! I would definitely agree that doing a light fixture over the table would be advisable over your island bc 24" might not be enough unless you did something that was 10" in diameter or smaller and was truly petite in form. This would allow for some direct overhead task lighting while not competing with a larger chandelier over the dining table. I hope this helps and good luck!

Hi there...There are several great brands that offer cabinet depth refrigeration and freezer options that are economical and good choices so you are not dealing with the unsightliness of the units coming out past the cabinet depth. Check out the new units from Electrolux.. http://www.electroluxappliances.com/Kitchen-Appliances/Refrigerators/Single-Door-Refrigerator/ http://www.electroluxappliances.com/Kitchen-Appliances/Refrigerators/Single-Door-Freezer/
These work side by side and are very reasonably priced all while fitting seamlessly into your cabinet layout.

Hope this helps!! Good luck with your remodel!

The Wolf range shown here is actually a 60" overall width and we created the hood to extend 32" past with the spice pull-outs which are 12" each and about 4" of counter on either side. Not knowing your overall design or what your hood detail is, I would recommend that you consider extending your hood to approximately 42"-48" to add some drama.

Red oak would stain equally as well in a darker tone. If your floors are existing in the home (which they seem to be) then your refinisher should be able to do a few color samples on the floor for you once they are sanded down. Upon your approval, he will sand all of the variations out and then proceed with your final pick. This way you are able to see the shades that are close to what you are looking for and get the perfect match. Good luck with your project!

I love wood for kitchen floors. They are easier on the feet and can be damp moped. Of course, you don't want to let water stand on the floor or water potted plants on them. I also like the continuity that comes from having the wood floor flow from room to room.

Wood is a very comfortable surface to stand on for longer periods of time, making it an ideal floor for kitchens. Hardwood floors are generally easy to maintain and clean up with very little product. Another benefit is that they don't pose the same risks a stone floor does, where etching is inevitable and can occur easily if something acidic touches it. If you do go with hardwood flooring, a more important consideration would be the species of wood you use, as some woods tend to be softer than others. Also the stain of the wood is a factor that you should address as well, as darker colors show more than a more mid-tone color would. A hand-scraped hickory floor, with its naturally inherent knots and heavier grain "camouflages" wear and tear more effortlessly than a a much lighter and softer maple floor, which has hardly any visible grain. Assessing the design aesthetic you are going for, along with your lifestyle and family nucleus will help you also decide how practical hardwood would be for you and which wood species would be your best match.

Is the Calcutta Gold Honed or Polished? - Hi Gorgeous Kitchen! I know the backsplash is Calcutta Gold, but can you tell me if it is honed or polished? I like honed but I'm worried it will be too subtle in an all white kitchen. Thank you so much.

Choosing cabinet color with carrera backsplash - Hi, My favorite kitchen on house! I am doing custom cabinets in white but chose BM Oxford white since my carrera backsplash has a bright white to it. Using velvet negresco on perimeter and blue ice granite on dark stained mahogany island. I am wondering if I should have chosen dove white or pointing. Will the contrast be too stark? Also using the same hardware and x pattern glass as this kitchen. Outstanding job!!!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"Traditional," "classic" and "quietly luxurious" would be good descriptors to keep in mind when designing your plantation kitchen. A great big range and plenty of cupboard space provide room for party prep. Marble counters are a worthy splurge, especially if you bake a lot, as they are ideal for rolling out dough.
