KitchensContemporary Kitchen, San Francisco

This hyper-modern kitchen is found within an existing historic carriage house. The juxtaposition of the vernacular with the very contemporary creates a strong feeling of enclosure and serenity.

    The shelves, bench and cabinets are custom made in a local shop. They are made from MDF with a white conversion varnish finish.

    Please correct me if i am misunderstanding you but are you saying that the cabinets are actually just a simple MDF European style cabinet wtih a gloss white conversion varnish finish and they came out that glossy? The finish is immaculate. So you see the differences in the texture of the substrate at the corners where you have a end grain of the MDF vs. a face grain of the the adjacent piece of MDF? Also, where did you source the slab wood bar and what species of wood is it?Thanks. Great looking project.

    It is actually a very simple LED rope light on a switched circuit above the cabinets. These lights are not expensive and are widely available in different lengths on the internet or elec supply houses. Pay attention to the color of the LED's though as some cheaper ones may be very blue or yellow.
    Good luck!

        10. Wood. Real wood can add a warm organic element to your white kitchen. Islands, floating shelves and countertops are great potential kitchen additions in wood. This photo shows a live-edge bar top.
