Case Design and Remodeling of San Jose

This retro kitchen offers the clean lines and look of white on white but then allows for the pop of color on the floor and on the opposite end the lit upper cabinets where you can add another pop of color.

Hi Duncan_K, thanks for the inquiry. The faucet is by Rohl (Perrin and Rowe Collection). Other brands that offer similar classic farmhouse style are Kallista, Lefroy Brooks, and Waterstone. Happy hunting!

Big Chill makes the retro appliances.. You can get pricing from their website.

Kieffer's Appliances
Based on the logo on the bottom of the dishwasher, I'm thinking these are North Star appliances by Elmira Stove Works. Olivias is correct that Big Chill also makes retro looking appliances.

Owner Jim Kabel says it is Glass Tile. Not really practical for a Kitchen floor but it does look beautiful!

Hi rbthat, thank you for your question! The upper cabinets (below the glass fronted cabinets) are indeed 30" with an overall ceiling height of 8 ft. If the cabinet in question are considerably less than 30", you may considering visually breaking up the proposed upper (stacked) cabinets with mullions on the glass. Another consideration is to stack the crown to a taller height and keep the glass cabinets at 12". Hope this helps and feel free to ask any further questions! Good luck!

Rhythm smoothly leads the eye from one area to another. Repetition is created when an element of design is repeated. In this case the elements color and shape are being repeated. The checkered floor repeats the color black and white and also repeats the square shape.

Yes, this is indeed a Carrera Marble countertop. It is a highly porous product, so it does need a lot of care. For a maintanence-free Carerra look, try quartz options like Caesarstone and Cambria. They currently have some new introductions in the 'carrerra/calcutta' look.
