    Thank you so much for taking the time and respond to my question . I truly appreciate your comet and your wisdom . It made my decision so much easier to go with white cabinets in our new house .

  • rusticdrive

    Month ago we finally moved into our new home ! I need and would appreciate your help with picking out the backsplash . I'm so afraid to put the wrong color. You were so kind and responded to my previous question .

    The countertop-is granite Santa Cecilia

    The cabinets are Yorktown - Crowley Maple Divinity Classic

    The appliances are stainless steel

    The hardwood floor is American Hds Oak 5 inch - Old Bronze AMP05

    Our floor is open concept and on the back of the kitchen island is our family room . So far we have not painted the walls - they are neutral . I was thinking something like lite gray . Our sofa and chairs have color gray, lite and darker shades of taupe and ivory .

    Thank you ,

    Thank you so much for responding. I guess I will not be able to have an apron sink which is just fine. I went to a store to check out sinks and was told cast iron is what I would want. My contractor said no they are too heavy and I should go with something else. Now I don't know what kind of material to buy. I just want a white double sink (same size). Can you please help?

    We often hide appliances behind cabinet panels so that they do not overwhelm the space. With more kitchens being open to other rooms, it is preferable to have them blend harmoniously with the home's overall aesthetic, be it traditional, transitional or contemporary.

    The backsplash is comprised of white subway tiles approx. 3" x 6". The client chose this tile with the architect, so we are not sure of it's exact name. It had a handmade, rustic quality to it that complemented the classic feel of the home, think imperfect edges and rougher textures than a machine-made tile.

    Thanks for asking about this great kitchen that we designed for a home in Easton, MD. The oversized walnut island is 55" wide, to accommodate stools on three sides easily. The distance between the wood countertop and the base cabinets behind the stools on the left is 48", that is sufficient room for the stools to slide out and still have someone pass by or stand at the sink. Our clients entertain frequently and specifically requested room for at least 5 guests at the wood island, by extending it past the granite on the left we were able to seat a total of 7.

    The wood countertop is by The Grothouse Lumber Company. They used a "Food Grade Oil Finish." Although it requires ongoing application, it is hypoallergenic and the countertop is safe for food preparation use and direct chopping. The finish has no VOC and is LEED compliant. It can be easily sanded and renewed by the homeowner.

    All the base cabinets are 34 1/2" tall. The granite countertop on the island is a little thicker, about 3", than the wood countertop, which is a little less than 3". The normal height from the floor to the top of countertops is 36" but it can be taller if the materials require it.

    This is a fairly large kitchen--almost 10' x 23'. To give you an idea of the proportions, the granite island and the wood top are each approx. 4' x 8' and the windows above the sink that you see in this photo are almost 12' wide. The walking space between the islands and the base perimeter cabinets is at least 42". NKBA kitchen design guidelines recommend at lease 36" for a pathway, but we try to design wider spaces so that two people can easily pass by each other in busy kitchens.

    The ovens are on the right next to the refrigerator and freezer. Grouping appliances together decreases the amount of steps the cook has to make during meal preparation. In this kitchen, the water views were very important, so we added the 12' wide bank of windows above the sink. The numerous windows limited the amount of wall cabinets, so we included deep pantry storage on the appliance wall. Now natural light pours in the kitchen.

    Thanks for asking about this lovely waterfront kitchen. We do not actually join the different countertops in situations where two or more materials are used. Rather, we meet the two surfaces, varying their heights just a bit. In this case, the wood is about 3/8" lower than the granite. Where the surfaces meet, there is a bead of clear silicone to seal whatever tiny gap there might be between the two. The granite is templated on-site once the base cabinets are set and level. SInce the tops come from different vendors, a second measure could take place after the granite was installed to ensure a tight fit between it and the wood.

          While this kitchen has an island, the prep sink here is also located on the perimeter, facing the window. They had a nice view and so chose to put the sink in front of it, and the cooktop on the island. Because that side of the kitchen has expansive counters, they were able to maintain symmetry with the window without sacrificing continuous prep counter space.
