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.

Oak & Broad
Kim, the majority of our clients put wood in their kitchen. This has been a frequent topic on Houzz and usually flooring in the kitchen prevails. :-) Here are some recent light colored White Oak floors in kitchens. We made them for other Houzz users.

Love love love the walnut island top. What kind of protective finish did you use after the walnut stain?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
House of L Interior Design
This wood top is not used to cut anything on so it was finished with a polyurethane based coat to offer a deeper protective sealant from moisture typical to a kitchen setting. Thank you for your inquiry and I hope this assists you with your project!

what kind of microwave is that? - Is that a warming drawer underneath it?

Hi. Its the 24" Wolf Microwave drawer. The drawer underneath is just for storage, it is not a warming drawer. Hope that helps!
