Hayes Valley RemodelContemporary Kitchen, San Francisco

This one level flat was completely gutted by a fire. We completely changed the layout of rooms. The wood feature wall is composed of reused studs that were charred in the fire. At the edges, some of the black charring can still be seen.

This project has been featured in Dwell and the San Francisco Chronicle.

    the wood is madrone, which is a fast growing tree local to the area. meridor, the oven door operates just fine. zeink, the counter is a slab stone called pietra cardoza.

    plywood is the substrate.
  • adykhu55

    Do the cabinets have plywood inside the tops of each cabinet, or did you increase the height of all the cabinet doors by 3/4" or so? Usually plywood substrate requires a mitered front, making it look 1-1/2" thick on the front.

    the countertop is a natural slab stone called pietra cardoza. i would look for a vendor who specializes in stone in your area.

    Pietra Cardoza? That sounds really interesting, but it looks really beautiful. My wife and I are planning on re-doing our entire kitchen, and we're trying to get ideas for our counter tops. I really like this color a lot. Do they scratch very easily? http://www.venatostone.com/products.html

    the hood is by miele. it has a touch release function such that with a slight touch it extends out from the cabinetry while cooking.

    the slab stone was 3/4". we did not flush the stove with the cabinet front, but rather the counter edge, which overhung the cabinet face about 3/4". if you have a different aesthetic in mind for alignment, you can simply customize the counter depth and pull the cabinets from the wall a bit further (or fabricate them deeper).

      Approach 3: Use the Same Material for Both Counter and BacksplashLove your countertop selection and want to keep this process simple? Consider running your countertop material up onto the wall as the backsplash. This is an especially smart option if you are required to purchase entire slabs of your chosen countertop material and you happen to have enough material left over to use the remainder as the backsplash.Shown: Get the look with a Pietra del Cardoso stone counter and backsplash.

      pietra cardosa counter and backsplash

      cherylrssll added this to Wish ListAug 5, 2019

      Is this a good approach? Would it add depth to the room or just seem "blah"?

      Same material for bench top and splashback
