Classic White KitchenTraditional Kitchen, Cleveland

In the design stages many details were incorporated in this classic kitchen to give it dimension since the surround cabinets, counters and backsplash were white. Polished nickel plumbing, hardware and custom grilles on feature cabinets along with the island pendants add shine, while finer details such as inset doors, furniture kicks on non-working areas and lofty crown details add a layering effect in the millwork. Surround counters as well as 3" x 6" backsplash tile are Calacutta Gold stone, while island counter surface is walnut. Conveniences include a 60" Wolf range, a 36" Subzero refrigerator and freezer and two farmhouse sinks by Kallista. The kitchen also boasts two dishwashers (one in the island and one to the right of the sink cabinet under the window) and a coffee bar area with a built-in Miele. Photo by Pete Maric.

Inspiration for a timeless u-shaped kitchen remodel in Cleveland with wood countertops, raised-panel cabinets, white cabinets, stone slab backsplash, white backsplash and paneled appliances —  Houzz

    Last thing, I'm debating this with the cabinet manufacturer. Did you use applied moldings on the lower hearth sides (that touch countertop)? Or is that a regular door front?

    Hi Dave,


    I took the dims of the island when that was posted two years ago on the question. There are 44" from island end to front of cabinets and the cabinets are 24"D. So for wall to wall it is approximately 22+' W give or take a few inches. Hope that helps.

    HI there! The ceiling height in this kitchen is 9' and the room dimensions are approximately 22' x 21' (there is a small pocket behind the main kitchen which services a gallery and the formal dining room) You should absolutely be able to fit the island shown here, but it might have to be slightly narrower and not have accessibility on the sides. Good luck with your project in advance!

    White kitchens have been synonymous with classicism in traditional homes for centuries. Christopher Peacock kitchens certainly helped with the resurgence in popularity of white kitchens; however, the white kitchen will continue to be a timeless standard in the landscape of traditional design regardless of waning trends.
