I would love to have this color. I should have read the reviews. Ball Green was way off.

Can someone send me what they found out about the color?

Hard Wood Floor and Wood Countertop - - I love this kitchen! So delightful! I'm concerned though about how practical it is to have a hard wood floor in the kitchen. Doesn't it get damaged from spills of food or cleaning products for ex? Also doesn't the butcher block get damaged from regular exposure to water around the sink? Thanks a lot!

I was told that I would not like my finished original wood floors in my kitchen--had them refinished six years ago and I still love them. Easy to care for and shows less dirt than any other flooring.

Do you need solid wood to make a butcher block or it is OK to use laminate wood? Sorry if the answer is obvious. I live in a country where it is not common to have butcher blocks. They use here marble or quartz or other stuff, but almost no one uses wood countertops in the kitchen. That's why I need to get all the information on my own. I asked about solid maple wood here, and it looks like it is very expensive, but there are blocks of laminate maple wood at reasonable prices.
Thanks a lot!

Question about paint and counter tops - I love this kitchen and am using it as inspiration for my kitchen remodel. My kitchen is very small and it is open to the dining room. I chose white cabinets with brushed nickel hardware. My floors are hand scraped oak...Oak Gunstock which is a medium color. I decided on a higher end HD laminate counter top that has the look of granite. The color is called Bella Capri and has colors of gold, amber, black, taupe and a hint of cool blue. I painted my dining room with Olympic paint Thyme Green and I love it. I don't want a tile or glass backsplash, so could I paint my kitchen Thyme Green floor to ceiling or should I lighten it up and paint the wall above the counter top a creamy white and use the green above the cabinets as shown here? I'm afraid if I paint everything green, there won't be enough contrast between the wall and counter tops.

what is the green shade visible in the living room over the FPL? - I'm working on a plan for a house (paint plan) and the owners picked a silver grey green as their fav color for soothing environment. Looks a bit like the LR color here. Just wanted to name it for them as I love the kitchen color and we are blending room to room in three rooms. With an accent color of cinnamon orange.

The idea really looks great. Include some contrasting colors as that would increase the ambiance effect of the room. The butcher block counter top is really awesome one.

White appliances with shades of white cabinets. - I am doing a big kitchen reno and am trying to decide on appliance finish to go with antique white cabinets. I was told by my cabinet maker and also a kitchen representative at a box store, that I should buy stainless steel because white appliances will be a shade off from the cabinets and not look good. I do not want to spend the extra money for the fridge and dishwashers that have removable panels and then get custom coloured panels made. Love that look but budget restraints. Not fussy on black appliances. I see this kitchen has a white dishwasher with white toned cupboards. Looking for opinions. Thanks.

I think finishes on cabinet/ drawer pulls can differ from lighting. My new kitchen has this. The picture above is not my kitchen, one off of houzz, posted at the time to represent my dilemma, since my kitchen was still under construction.

Is the green in the den the same color as the green in the kitchen? - Our kitchen cabinets are pure white, plus there are two large window seats (6 windows). With all the white and light the green looks more like celery green than the same color in the den where we have lots of dark wood. These two room are not one room, yet they have two adjoining walls. I would like to paint the kitchen a darker green, within the same tone. Will the adjoining walls look right painted two different greens?

The lighting in the house, as well as the editing done by our photographer can distort the look of some of the paint colors, making them appear lighter or darker than they do in real life. I would always suggest getting paint samples to see how the color works for you. This color here is by a company called Farrow and Ball and is called "Ball Green"

Although it appears this way, it is purely because of the photograph. Our photographer will edit and play with lighting to achieve the ideal shot, however as a result, the colors can appear different than they actually are. Keep this in mind when you find paint colors on Houzz and always order samples before hand to see how the color will look on your walls. Hope this helps. If you want something closer to what the picture looks like, I would suggest Benjamin Moore Forest Hills Green.

Crisp Architects

One of the drawbacks to bamboo is that if it is not natural and has been carbonized, it can be soft and dent fairly easily, making it a not ideal fit for a high use area such as a kitchen. However, an un-carbonized bamboo floor is nearly as strong as red oak, so it is more durable, but still has a tendency to scratch from pet claws or high heels, etc.

The best advice we can offer would be to print the photo and bring it to a local paint store and ask them to match the color the best they can. If you get a few samples that are both a shade lighter and darker you can pick which color you think is best and works in the space. It's very important to see how a color reacts to the way light enters each space as that can drastically alter how you see the room.

Hoods are not required by code however ventilation is. A window or ceiling fan could suffice, but if needed, there are some creative ways to conceal the ductwork. It depends on the situation. There are also pop up vents available.

To answer your question, butcher block wood counter tops are meant to be cut on and are designed to withstand frequent cutting and scratching. For maintenance, you would apply mineral oil from time to time to prevent over drying. The material is long lasting and timeless and offers great aesthetics as well as practical uses to any kitchen.

Mineral Oil is a great product to use. Another suggestion is pure raw almond oil, walnut oil. or raw tung oil. Raw tung oil is obtained by pressing the seeds from the nut of a tung tree. When applied in many fine coats over wood, tung oil slowly cures to a satin "wetted wood" look with slight golden tint. It resists liquid water better than any other pure oil finish. Mineral oil, however is cheap, easy to find, and easy to apply. I think any of these choices will work fine, you should choose what will work for you.

Thanks for your interest! The backsplash is simply a painted beadboard paneling. There are more pictures of this renovation in our project album titled "Connecticut Home"

Question about the bead board. - Is the bead board part of the cabinetry or was it a purchased material that was cut and nailed to the area over the counter tops? I have seen bead board panels at out local lumber store and was thinking this is what you used. Again, kudos to you and your client!

That was purchased by the clients so I do not have information on them but they were individual frames roughly 5 x 7's.

What you are seeing here is paneling that is painted white. I do not recall the exact shade of white, I will try to find out and let you know asap.

10. Painting. I know, it sounds ridiculous — if you can't paint, what DIY project can you do? Keep in mind, I'm not here to stop you from painting your own house. Just consider that a good, lasting paint job takes a lot of prep work. Sometimes this can involve wall repair, scraping paint (which can be a health risk if it's lead paint), priming and caulking over old finishes with various products. Depending on what you're working with, you may need someone with more experience to help. Next: The 10 Hats Your General Contractor Wears

Green. I have long admired the shade of green in this kitchen. I think it's perfectly paired with the white cabinets and does a good job of adding warmth. This mellow shade of green is Farrow & Ball's Ball Green 75.

2. Pay Attention to SightlinesSan Francisco interior designer and color expert Jennifer Ott frequently works with clients who want more variety in their wall colors. When that is the case, she suggests considering sightlines. When you’re standing in the living room, what other rooms will you see? If you have a view into the kitchen, the dining room and the foyer, then the colors for those spaces need to work well together. “It can start to look really wacky if you have a different color scheme in each room,” Ott says.Find an interior designer near you

7. Kitchen nooks and crannies. Typically, I find there isn’t too much paintable space in the kitchen. But when I do find it, it’s between the cabinets, appliances and backsplash. When space is limited, I always encourage owners to go bold and use colors that offset the room’s features. For example, in a kitchen with white cabinets and natural stone countertops, pick a hunter green or dark blue. In large quantities, these dark shades might feel overwhelming, but in small quantities, they give the room a strong dimension.

Maybe just accent with green paint and backsplash
