The cabinets came from a custom shop, which can generally mean the shop made the cabinet boxes and then most likely purchased the doors from a manufacturer. Here is the custom shop that handled all the cabinets. http://www.imperialcabinets.net/gallery/kitchen.html/page/29#prettyPhoto[inline]/6/

Hi Letitia! I took your advice and went for it. We had custom built our drawer microwave in the island. It looks and works great. We bought the Sharp brand, as it handle matched our refrigerator. It is very easy to clean. The open/close button works really well. My cup of coffee spills only if I manually open the drawer. That is typically when I am trying to rush and being impatient.

Brilliant! Lighting & Design
Proper scale, proportion, and relationships is about much more than just the quantity of lights and size of the island.
Please consider the various ways the island will be used and the quality of light they require, ceiling height, overall room size, whether or not the room is open to other spaces, where else can the lights / island be seen from, relationship to other furniture / cabinetry / lighting in the space, etc. before making a decision.
IMO, just on the facts presented here so far, I'd go with 3 @ 14".

Granite with all finishes is still susceptible of taking on stains (e.g. oils, etc)...you should speak with your fabricator to ensure you are getting the right granite and finish for your space.

I'm having a difficult time grasping that the wall color is Woodlawn Blue. It seems much bluer and brighter than other pics I've seen of the color. In every other depiction it seems to lean a lot more green. Perhaps it's the lighting and all the windows here. Either way, it's beautiful.

In my opinion Cambrian Black is the darker of the two. Absolute Black Granite contains deposits that reject the dyes and resins that give it the black and polished look, therefor leaving tiny specks of gray that "lighten" its appearance.

With that being said, Cambrian Black has added material that "sparkles" under the light. It is not over-dramatic, but is visible.

Here are some links to compare, but I would source some samples of the two to compare side by side.

Absolute Black granite is basically pitch-black stone, simple and consistent in its elegant darkness. Cambrian Black has a rice-grain effect with an addition – a silvery reflection. So, they are different and you also need to consider the fact that there are no two same granite slabs in the world. Take a sample and bring it home to see if it really suits your kitchen space. You can learn more about both black granite types in our post Black Granite Countertops – a Daring Touch of Sophistication to the Kitchen.

we are in the process of remodeling our kitchen and are using these photos for inspiration.I see most black and white kitchens have honed vs polished.We have 4 kids and Im a little OCD when it comes to cleanliness. I have hears so much negative feedback in regards to honed or polished black granite.Now that you have lived in your kitchen would you be able to offer your personal experience with stains, smudges,fingerprints etc.... I really want to make an educated decision on this and be realistic.Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The big difference about this kitchen and the finishes you have described is this granite is leathered. When touring stone yards look for a leathered or antiqued slab not just polished or honed. The honed can be a lot of work and the darker polished granites can highlight dust, food crumbs, etc. I'm sure you know enough about yourself and the mix of your OCD issues + 4 kids and nothing will be perfect...shoot for practical. Unfortunately, now I've given you three finishes to lament over. Good luck with the final choice.

found these similar ones that are WAY more affordable thatn CIrca (i't sonly $230). I live for a good deal..I enjoy the "hunt." only different is they have a lighter bronze finish (which I like better). It was actually featured on a look for less blog!

Seems like different regions have different names for the stone finishes. If you search for antique finish on granite you might find close up photos that you can then compare to the 'leathered' finish and that might answer your question. Good luck.

Granite doesn't really have much of an issue with scratching, whether it has a honed or polished finish. You care for both finishes the same way. Clean it only with your granite cleaner and seal the countertops approximately once a year. Black granite is very hard, so it's practically indestructible.

Stunning work, Garrison Hullinger Interior Design! That ceiling is gorgeous!

Hinges - Hi! This is my inspiration photo and my remodel has just begun. I just got in the cabinets in decorator's white (love) and the cambrian black granite antiqued (again, love). I also have them as inset with concealed hinges. My question is that for the few glass doors that I have, you can see the hinges at an angle - is that the same for the glass doors in the picture? I'm sure once I put things in they will be less noticeable but I just wanted to be sure I didn't order something wrong. Are your hinges visible from an angle on your glass doors?

The charm of this space, to me, is having all that light flooding in through the big windows. Add in white cabinets and dark countertops, interesting light fixtures, and it's a winner. Just decrease the scale of things and it can be yours. Take the parts that caught your eye and go for it, but on a smaller scale.

Thanks for your comments, this award winning home is a wonderful pride for the family living in it as well. We used 5" and 7" width oak flooring throughout the home. As for obtaining a dark stain on the oak floors like this home it is best to work with your contractor, whether selecting a prefinish product or a stain in place (like this project). There are a lot of steps to achieve this look and best discussed with a professional in your regional area...or you could end up like this family:

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 9 Ideas Coming to a Kitchen Near You
3. Soft sheen instead of super shine. Leathered, honed or flamed granite offers a low sheen, and the texture feels good under your hands. These finishes are outpacing highly polished surfaces in popularity.
