    I have a very similar floor in my house, and it’s a prefinished white oak with a natural, matte finish. I love it!

    Well Emily...
    Looks like nobody is going to step up...
    We didn't provide the material in the photo, however if I had to guess, I'd say the floor is probably/possibly white oak in a character grade & random wide widths (perhaps 6"-9") and finished in a light to medium hand-scraped style.
    Someone in an earlier post had suggested pine, however it's difficult to say in this photo... and pine isn't a hardwood nonetheless.
    Was also suggested that the finish was "clear" or natural... however a slight tint may have been applied to obtain that nice, warm tone.
    This look can easily be provided by some of us, in a custom prefinished format if desired.

    These look a lot like pendants from Stone Lighting's Kilo collection. The ones in this photo appear to have finials at the bottom, but the Kilo pendants do not. Other than that, they are very similar.

    The original Kilo Pendant will look most like the one pictured here, but you can visit the product page and scroll down to "related items" to see the rest of the products in the family, as well.

    whether you get stainless, which scratches, or porcelain or fireclay, which can chip, I would suggest investing in a grid for the bottom. This eliminates a good portion of the chipping and scratching. If you go with porcelain, never be without a can of Bar Keeper's Friend.

    Many good ideas.. a more durable stainless is 16 gauge... it has 25% more steel in it that 18 gauge. And with stainless... the most recent development is the seamless drain.. eliminates a lot of bacteria.

    Each can light will be different. When you are doing a lighting layout for a room and using recessed lighting always check the beam spread of that specific light. They also do great LED 3" cans that make a beautiful spread of light. The bigger the size does not mean more light.

    I assume the 23' dimension includes the dining area. What is the length of just the kitchen area where the counter stops?
    Also does the 17' dimension go to the wall behind the fridge?

    I just purchased some reclaimed oak floors that look like this. They are from Elmwood Reclaimed Lumber. They are incredible to deal with and you can pick varying widths of planks and all kinds of woods. They are finished on site. Call them if you are confused by the website - they are incredibly helpful. I looked for SO long and their prices are great too.

    Did you vary the widths of the floorboards? They appear to be 7" and 5" ? We're considering doing the same variation, but I'm in a toss up vs. doing all the same 7" width. Love the wide boards! Very nicely done.

Photos by Rob KarosisAFTER: A custom island replaced the existing one; it includes a trash center with storage drawers on one side and storage cabinets, tray storage and a built-in recessed wine rack on the other. “We purposely planned it with seating on the outside of the island so the kids or anyone sitting there stays out of the way of the work triangle,” Crisp says.Posts on the island are both decorative and functional (they allow legroom for those seated). Meanwhile, an extra-thick honed Mother of Pearl quartzite top has a 1-inch overhang that protects the cabinets below.Custom cabinetry: JEM Woodworking; cabinet hardware: RK International

Lisa Higgins added this to Dream Spaces: 12 Beautiful White KitchensMar 12, 2014

Big and beautiful, this kitchen has it all, from original wide-plank oak floors to expanses of beautifully designed and fitted cabinetry. Note the netted-glass Sorenson Lanterns and the French café stools around the island, with its columned legs and Carrara marble top. The textural backsplash is done in a skinny pencil tile fashioned from Bianco Carrara marble.
