Great. Yes, existing colors in a room can reflect onto your color choices and distort them. I checked with my client and she said it does not take on a green hue and that it is all around very neutral! Hope that helps!

I see what you mean. They are the same size, but it's an optical illusion. Attached are the actual dimensions from the cabinet shop drawings. Hope that helps!

Hello Those are Polished Nickel and they finger print as well as if not maintained (wiped down) they turn fogged and no longer look polished and cant be clean easy.Food for thought Brushed nickel is very nice as well much less work .Feel free to contact us with any questions . info@nyhardware.com

Depth of cabinets almost to front of range - Great attention to detail. It looks like you pushed the base cabinets out to the edge of the stove- maybe 27"? Were you required to line the sides of the cabinets in sheet metal or was it okay that the range door was close to cabinetry? Thank you!

Thank you for your kind words. I understand your question completely. Wolf lists the depth of this range (DF486G) as 29.5" but that is to the front of the handles! The inset cabinets on this project are 25" deep to the cabinet face frames. Wolf, like many range manufacturers, requires no clearance to the adjacent cabinets, nor the installation of any non-combustible material such as sheetmetal etc. but I can definitely understand why that intuitively seems needed. Hope this helps, Leigha

You are so helpful- as always. We are interested in a beautiful blue Bluestar and I'll call them and check their specifications to see if there are differences.

Hi Anna! We purchased the tile from Country Floors. We asked them to custom cut 3x12 tiles for us out of 12x12 honed Calacatta Marble Tiles from which we hand selected out about 20% of the darker gray pieces. Country Floors helped by letting us know the mix in the lot (attached is a photo from the warehouse) so we knew to order 30% more in order to select out the pieces we wanted. I highly recommend them. Best of luck to you!

Your hood is simply perfect. Where did you purchase it? - I love the simplicity and uniqueness of you kitchen hood. Do you think this could be adapted for a kitchen with 8 foot ceilings? Would you mind telling me where you purchased it, or if it was custom made, the supplier who made it? Thank you!

The hood was custom designed and made by the cabinet maker. Hope that helps!

How did you decide on size of pulls on drawers? - I'm at the point in a kitchen renovation in which I have to choose my hardware. To me that is the jewelry of a kitchen.

Yes, I think of hardware are jewelry as well! I just try a few different sizes in the drawing until I see the one I like. You could print color photos of the pulls and scale them to the size they actually are and tape them up to your drawers to get a good idea. I know another designer who does that. Good luck!

The cabinets are actually 59" tall. The ceiling height in this kitchen is 117 inches. Attached is drawing showing dimensions. Hope that helps!

Thanks! The stone is the same on the counters and backsplash. It is Calacatta d'Oro marble and the same marble tile was cut to a 3x12 size. Hope that helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Kitchen of the Week: Classic Style Creates Calm for a Busy Family
Now the homeowner has plenty of counter space around the range, a major improvement in the room’s functionality. The elegant marble tile backsplash extends up the wall to the vent hood. Glass cabinets maintain the open feeling and allow the homeowners to display their growing collection of white china and ceramics. The fact that Heydt painted the back of the cabinets the same gray color as the fronts is worth noting. It helps the white collection stand out while creating a cohesive look throughout the room. She used the same color on the walls in the dining area and family room. 48-inch gas range with 6 burners: Wolf
