    Hi! I'm wondering how thick the countertops are? Thank you for the awesome answers!
  • subeeskitchen
    The countertops here are 1 1/4" (standard).

I love the vent hood over the cooktop, can you share what company makes this with the additional shelf?

  • subeeskitchen
    I heard that too, but I think it a) looks funny to have the hood wider than the range/cooktop, and b) isn't necessary if you have a decent hood/blower. Maybe with a grill you'd get more smoke, but I do plenty of searing and frying and my blower has been fine (even with the "obstruction" of a shelf above).
  • lindamarie1

    Can you please tell me if your shelf is recessed at all to prevent high heat absorption under it?

What are the measurements of this room and the island? Thanks!

  • cletus
    Do you ever find the island too deep? Reaching to the kids on the stools? Debating a 5' or 4' island.

    How are the subway tiles spaced out? How large is the grout line?

love the floor. Could you tell me what type flooring tjis is? Thanks

  • subeeskitchen
    Thanks -- the flooring is long-plank fir (to match the rest of the 100-yr-old house). Very soft, though.

What is the backsplash? Is it ripple and what brand please?

  • subeeskitchen
    Thanks -- the subway tiles are just plain ol' white cheapies! Not from Home Depot but almost the same. (We compared both and thought the ones from the tile store felt a little more substantial, but they were very close.) It's the grey grout that creates the illusion.

    These are white glass subway tiles in the back splash.

    You can find them in different colors and sizes as well on our site. We also offer samples so you can get a good feel for the color of the tile before you put it on your back splash.

    The knobs are very simple -- also RH, but I think they were "Aubrey". Finish for all is brushed.

    We specified long boards (again to match the old floors); these came from Russia (!). 2 1/4" wide. They are stained with MinWax Puritan Pine. Be warned that fir is very very soft -- it will have a "patina" in no time. You have to be prepared for this.
daneddy wrote:Jan 3, 2013
  • subeeskitchen
    The cabinets and trim are pure white - no tint. (Trim color is the same throughout the house.) The wood floors and abundant natural light keep the room from feeling cold.

I love the counter stools, where are they from? Thanks

  • barbaraof
    Source of those stools? What I'm really wanting to find though is same shape w/wood seats (same concern you mentioned, cold surface, wood would be warmer and maybe a titch more comfortable) I may have to go with custom made one$, ouch. Thanks. Lovely kitchen.
  • sheller5921

    How are the stools holding up? Scratches? I am considering these and love the look, but concerned about having to be careful with the finish. Thanks!

How big is the overhang on the breakfast bar? Do you have trouble with people accidentally kicking the doors?

  • subeeskitchen
    The overhang is 12". The kids have learned not to kick. Cabinets clean easily with Mr. Clean magic erasers.

I really like the floor is it wood what color is it and could you tell me where can I purchase it?

  • subeeskitchen
    The floor is fir (from Russia, because we spec'd long boards to match the rest of the house). It's stained in Puritan Pine ( I think). Not sure I would recommend fir, though, unless you had an open floor plan like we do and were trying to match old wood. (It's VERY soft.)

    This is closest picture as of now -- planning to post more soon on subeeskitchen.com (my food blog). There are electrical strips on each short end of the island (if you zoom this picture you might be able to see them.) There are also outlets inside each short-end cabinet -- one for the stand mixer (with lift) and one for the wireless printer)

Your kitchen is just lovely. Could you share with me the manufacturer of the cabinetry?

- I am in the process of reviewing cabinetry for a new kitchen. Debating between inset and frameless.???

  • subeeskitchen
    These cabinets are custom-built by a cabinet maker and are " inset".

What brand is the gas range and what are its dimensions? Thank you

    The range is a BlueStar: 48", all-gas, 8 burners, 2 ovens.

    Do you love the BlueStar? I have read really wonderful things about it on gardenweb, but just wanted another opinion! Thank you!

What is the size of the island including the 12" overhang?

  • Ashley Cross
    Is the 12" overhand enough or do you wish it was deeper? Trying to make that decision currently. I can either extend my bar space out to 16" or double the thickness of my slab to 6cm but I can't do both. If 12" is enough that would be nice to know. Thanks!
  • subeeskitchen
    12" is plenty!

    Thank you for sharing, Sue! I have been wanting to ask about the recessed lights, too, but hesitant to bother you with another question after seeing tons of them. So glad sherkelsey asked, and of course thankful to see your advice to it! I was about to get "6 LED (looks too big and ugly), but so happy to see this site before I purchase. Everything you did on your kitchen looks so perfect and just beautiful. Thanks for your generosity to share precious and valuable advices! While there are hundreds of choices/products on almost anything in the kitchen, getting a hint of how it looks together from such a lovely kitchen truly, truly helps. I and my 5yr daugher became fan of your blog, too! Wishing you the best.

    Wish the desk area could've been a little wider, so that at least one drawer could be wide enough for file folders. Also wish there was an overhang on the short ends of the marble, so that a bar stool could be brought around (better for conversation that 4 in a line).

    The chairs were from Restoration Hardware (10+ years ago). We had the slipcovers made by a local seamstress. Ordered the Sunbrella fabric from outdoorfabrics.com. Great fabric if you have kids - everything washes right out.

    Hi - Please refer back to the previously posted questions - I know there are a lot of them but all of your questions have been addressed. The cushions are quite firm - they're 3" foam wrapped in batting, and then the Sunbrella fabric holds up very well. If anything I wish they would soften a bit because they make the seat height a tiny bit too high. Definitely like having the custom cushions, though.

    The perimeter stone is actually honed pietra di cardosa, sealed/treated for a darker finish. The island slab is honed calacatta gold marble.
