Gathering Place Traditional Kitchen, Birmingham

KITCHEN AND DEN RENOVATION AND ADDITION
A rustic yet elegant kitchen that could handle the comings and goings of three boys as well as the preparation of their mom's gourmet meals for them, was a must for this family. Previously, the family wanted to spend time together eating, talking and doing homework, but their home did not have the space for all of them to gather at the same time. The addition to the home was done with architectural details that tied in with the decor of the existing home and flowed in such a way that the addition seems to have been part of the original structure.

Are the upper cabinets a light shade of gray or more on the cream side?
Sorry to keep bothering you, but I am redoing my kitchen and really like your color combo.

No worries, it's sort of creamy with a tiny hint of grey. Very faint. It's way more cream than grey, though.

Really???? The contractor is not ignoring the questions. They have repeatedly said "We don't know" and apologized for their lack of info. It is entirely possible that the homeowner presented the contractor with finished cabinets and then to save cash painted the walls themselves. I don't understand why there is such an uproar. Contractors, architects, and interior designers are simply showcasing their work and you all are angry that someone isn't doing your legwork for your project for free?

Another rant - what has happened to "please" and "Thank you" - as in "would you please tell me..." and "thanks for the info"

I shared to Public on FB, and when I checked, it didn't show the photo I had chosen to show. So, I clicked on the photo Houzz posted, and I see the page urging me to declare my payment method!!!!!! AAAaaahhh! You better assure me that no one can see my personal information!. Right now I am fit to be tied.

I love this kitchen. We have used it for inspiration for our own remodel. My question is with the over-mantle. Did you put the counters in then build the drywalled structure or did you place the floating walls on the cupboards and cut the counter around it?

I don't know if there is another one - this one is well-placed in the work triangle. I would assume the dishwasher is in the island as well.
