    Here's an interesting previous discussion thread on wood countertops, with lots of information:

    I put in cheap IKEA butcher block counter by my sink and I wouldn't do it again. You can't let water sit on it and you can't sit wet pans on the surface and leave them for hours. If you have kids or visitors, nagging them or cleaning up after them gets old quick. I will end up replacing the section around my sink, probably with Corian.

    I do like the butcherblock in the food prep area of the kitchen, just not close to the sink For me, the big advantage of butcherblock or Corian over granite is I can cut it to size and fit it myself. Plus, the material is cheap

    The oil based finishes will often have a slightly golden tone. The water based finishes will usually be clear. Those Oak floors look great!

    Yes it is. This is a new home dubbed "Canary Cottage" inspired by the owner's childhood home. Throughout are canary details. Here is a closer image of the canary detail.

    Love the bird themed hangers! They give the room so much character!

    This teak counter top was finished with several coats of tung oil that creates a durable and timeless finish. Best of luck with your project!

    Thank you! We truly appreciate your positive feedback. We put a great deal of thought into the design and details of each of our custom homes in order to meet each indiviual client's tastes and needs. This particular style of home was inspired by the renowned early 20th century Pennsylvania architect R. Brognard Okie. We incorporate many of his timeless principals into our designs while also adapting them to meet the needs of today's modern families.

    Yes that is a free standing storage area. The sliding glass door is the pantry and fridge as you mentioned. To the right is a coffee station and to the back are closed shelves with pairs of doors for additional pantry storage. The free standing piece helps define the butlers pantry (sink you see toward the back) and kitchen spaces. I unfortunately did not see any additional photos of that area.

    Although this kitchen is probably 16'x20' it is an open floor plan with connection to the family room, family entry, breakfast room and the butler's pantry which you see here at the back of the photo.

    The lighting fixture was selected by the home owners and unfortunately we do not have any information on its source. Hopefully another Houzz user will recognize it and share its source with us.

    These were custom designed by our firm, Archer & Buchanan Architecture, then sent out to be custom fabricated. You might try looking at local kitchen showrooms in your area if you wanted to purchase stock cabinetry.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Nicole White Designs Interiors LLC added this to Stock Up on These Stylish Pantry Door IdeasApr 9, 2013

Barn-Style Pantry DoorsThe glass panes on this traditional barn door give the owner a peek inside. If you're clutter-prone, this probably isn't the best option for you. A frosted pane or solid door can hide your messes from wandering eyes.

7. Work in rustic elements. Farmhouse accents instantly add warmth and character to a bland kitchen. Replace the kitchen or pantry door with a sliding barn door, hang copper pots from a ceiling rack or bring in a timeworn antique wooden stool.
