Hello, what material was used for the counter tops? I am wondering if white carrera marble subway tile for backsplash would clash with granite counter tops. Has anyone seen both materials used together? Doing my kitchen remodel soon.

Thanks "Honey"...! (I should have written this before) The prefab stores assign new names to their stone which makes it next to impossible to do comparative pricing with other shops since the names don't match!

I see the bar stools at IKEA, but not in white. Did you paint them or do they no longer sell the white? Thanks!

Bought them that way... keep checking in the store, I'd be surprised if they stopped carrying them.

So can someone help me get clarity over which wall paint this room actually has? I see the photo of the Behr can with the formula, and then another poster points out that a photo indicates "Benjamin Moore Gray Horse", followed by other posters' guesses ie: SW Anonymous or SW Versatile Gray; what is the final answer here?

A similar wall color is Versatile Gray 6072, and try Extra White 7006 for the cabinets, both by Sherwin-Williams.

It was a custom color, but it's VERY similar to Benjamin Moore HC-105 Rockport Gray. Have fun painting!!! :O)

The guy who did the floors matched the color to the existing so he may have mixed a couple colors to get the new to match the old, but the wood is Oak and the stain was a golden honey-ish color...hope that helps! :0)

This is a mixture of old and new solid wood flooring. When we removed the wall to the kitchen, we "feathered" in wood flooring to match the original 1926 flooring and then had the whole floor stained to match the existing color throughout the rest of the house.

ALL of the kitchen was torn out, including the built-ins because they are what made up the wall that separated the kitchen and dining area [I'm attaching some more 'before' shots that show the built-ins]. All of these cabinets, including the island, are from IKEA. You are correct... for continuity, the baseboards are higher [I think around 5"] and just a continuation of what's throughout the rest of the house!

I love the serenity of this color. Try a warm gray such as Versatile Gray 6072 by Sherwin-Williams.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kelly Porter added this to Choosing Paint: How To Pick the Right Gray
Nature's Gray. Gray in the kitchen is becoming very popular these days. Because kitchens are such a huge gathering place, use a gray that is warm and inviting. If greige looks too taupe to you, turn to nature for inspiration. Many birds and other animals, rocks and pebbles are perfect shades of warm gray. Paint Pick: Gray Horse 2140-50 by Benjamin Moore
Erin Lang Norris added this to Keep Calm and Carry On: Going Beyond the Poster
Neutral colors. So maybe I'm stating the obvious, but an ideabook about creating a calm atmosphere would not be complete without the mention of neutral hues. These soft colors are easy to work with and provide a quiet and serene backdrop, allowing an overly busy mind to catch up on rest.
Laura Heller added this to Home Tech: Make a Place for the Web in the Kitchen
If you own a notebook computer, iPad or other portable device, pay attention to how it's used. Chances are it ends up in the kitchen more often than anyplace outside a home office. This is our gathering space, the hub of household activity. We use devices connected to the internet for so many things now; not having one available in the kitchen can be a real drawback.
Laura Gaskill added this to Sell Your Home Fast: 21 Staging Tips
3. Get your house sparkling clean. From shining floors and gleaming windows to clean counters and scrubbed grout, every surface should sparkle. This is the easiest (well, maybe not easiest, but certainly the cheapest) way to help your home put its best foot forward.

Dogs. Does anything make you more drawn to a room than an adorable pooch smizing at you? Of course, if you are a cat person, replace dog with cat.
Janet Dunn added this to Rethinking Beige in a World Gone Gray
What’s with “greige”? A neutral that’s winning votes is “greige,” basically a warm gray or a cool beige. Beige loses some of its warmth and cools towards gray, but not all the way. It has a foot in each camp and so is a very easy neutral to live with. At the lighter end, it’s placid and organic; in darker tones it packs a stylish punch. Check out some greiges among Dulux’s Perfectly Greige, Taubmans’ Stonehenge Greige and Resene’s Triple Rakaia.Tell us: How do you feel about beige?
