    My clients love it - it has a flamed finish which is more protective - it is harder than soapstone, but, not as hard as granite. There are many products to clean it and bring back the luster. I think patinas are wonderful. Buy something you love and dont worry about it. Life is full of imperfections.

    There may not be one - Not everyone finds a Microwave necessary, particularly in a small kitchen.

    HI Cams- sorry i did not see this sooner! My client requested a small microwave for this kitchen- so I made room for one in the far left cabinet to the left of the the hood. it is a std cabinet door (14" d uppers)- with a microwave sitting inside- such a low tech and easy solution.

    So wide open meaning... no shelves, no pull out's? Maybe the client is storing large items in those back corners that are not used very often. One would think it would be awkward to retrieve those items. None the less, this is an outstanding design and it's on my wish list for my future kitchen. Thank you for all your information. All your designs are beautiful! :)

    correct- she preferred awkwardness to losing the 2' x 2' corner "dead" space to the left of the dishwasher and to the right of the sink cabinet. best with your kitchen- i would be happy to design it for you :)

    The fir floor is original to this late 19th cent row house- it was covered with tile, but, once sanded and refinished - it looks antiqued and quite nice.

    Yes- we matched the wall color to the cabinetry color rather than adding another element in the room.

    The back splash tile is a cream crackle tile by Waterworks. It is designed with slight imperfections to give it more of a hand-made quality.

      I would need more information to comment, ie cabinet color, counter top material, tile color/pattern/size. Good design results from many integrated decisions that combine to achieve a common goal.

      you may be able to build as shown above, and there will be a "well" in front of the window it will block some of the lower window, but, if it makes the function much better, it would be worth it.

      Jeanne Finnerty Interior Design
      In this kitchen...there is no wall to wall width, as the left side opens up to the Dining Room. we planned this kitchen to have equal wall space on both sides of the window. The left side 18" deep upper cabinets. There is 42" between the base cabinets. The right side is a standard depth lower cabinet, 24"d.

      In this kitchen, we left the right side corner accessible through the sink cabinet. The homeowner will use as remote storage area for occasional use items.

      This is also similar to the size of my kitchen. I have a peninsula on the left with the dishwasher underneath. It is challenging loading it though. Nice job!

      What a gorgeous renovation! I arrived here because I also have a tight space and was looking at others. One question: how on earth do you load the dishwasher while standing at the sink?
