Thank you! This kitchen turned out beautifully. The hood is made of copper. We wanted to infuse copper into dramatic details throughout this house. What better way than a grand hood. Other areas were fireplace mantels, fire place screens, tile and wall treatments.

Island and windows - Can you tell me the dimensions of the island? It seems like the work surface and then upper portion are wider than most and I like them! Also, for the window trim--what would you call that if it is all wood? Just a "heavy molding" around the windows that link them all together? Love it!

Thank you so much for your responses---the kitchen is remarkable! For the upper section of the island, how much leg room do you allow under the "ledge" (my current kitchen has 10 1/4" and that seems a little shallow--do you like to allot for more leg room)? You've done a beautiful job--I love the coordinating countertops, the finishes, everything!

Good question. 15" overhang is minimal in my mind. I would shoot for 18" if possible. I do like a lot of leg room when the space allows. Otherwise a person feels hemmed in and is worried about kicking the backside of the cabinet. Thanks for your compliment. I loved selecting all the materials!
