    The walnut is gorgeous but might be hard to find. Have you considered Old Oak? It has a similar appeal and is rock hard for cutting surfaces. It can really take a beating. These are images from They can build a top for you as well.

    Maple is nice and rock hard too.

    A Simply Staged Home
    Im sorry to be commenting on this so long after your original post-however, I just came across it and had to put my "two cents" in. I am in the process of building a summer home in Falmouth, on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I am adamant about the stove going directly underneath a triple pane window because I am trying to take advantage of Western sun (a scarce resource where we live...especially during our long dark winters). That said, the builder and architect are both thrilled with this idea even though they have warned me about the constant cleaning. Remember, everything is a give and take. My plan is to place an antique metal tile (about 36" x 36")that normally hangs on the wall as art, against the window while doing any really messy cooking. When you're done, you can wipe it clean and put back on the wall! I'd love to hear what you finally decided to do!

    Hi nazzgirl329, I decided to go ahead with it and use a downdraft exhaust that raises from behind the cooktop. It will all be installed in just a few weeks. I think your idea of a metal tile is a great idea. I might try something like that if I feel the cleaning becomes too much. Glad to hear your builder and architect liked the idea....I think it's great to do things in non-standard ways! Good luck with your kitchen.

    Ben, what color are the Subway tiles?
  • Shay Har-Noy

    Nice kitchen. Normally to preserve the 'work triangle' layout, you have the sink in the middle. Here, the stove and refrigerator are on the same side. Care to comment on the flow of the room?

    Hi, it is +/-14'-11" from the farthest edge of the fridge to the window wall x +/- 7'-9" from the edge of the island closest to us in the picture to the tiled wall behind the range.

    I love a white kitchen especially with an island in the center and an unfinished wood counter top sets it off nicely.

    This is a great island that provides a nice contrast to the white cabinets. The natural look of the island gives the kitchen a really nice casual feeling. This is a great looking space.

    They look just like Plain and Fancy inset cabinets with the hinge showing.
  • michele1149

    Would you happen to know what type of hinges are used. I have older cabinets and want hinges like this that are sleeker and attractive. Thank you for your time

    Hi- If I understand the question correctly, you are referring to the 7' tall cabinet next to the refrigerator (it is actually about 6'-0" tall). That has pull out drawers for the bottom 2/3 and then a microwave shelf at the top. Please let me know if this is the info you were looking for. Thanks!

    I believe, but can't say for sure, that the pulls and hinges came from Colonial Bronze and were satin chrome.

    It is pretty warm. There is also a lot of sunlight and the camera exposure is effecting the color.

      What Houzz contributors are saying:

      Vanessa Brunner added this to How to Set Up a Kitchen Work TriangleDec 21, 2011

      2. Measure your current kitchen work triangle (if you have one), and think about how much you'd need to add or take away for it to work more efficiently. Keep in mind that the lengths of the triangle don't have to be completely even. The shape of your triangle will differ depending on what kind of kitchen shape you have. Besides the recommended distance between the points of the work triangle, the most important thing to keep in mind is to make sure that the lines of the triangle aren't blocked by anything. Trash cans, islands and other kitchen necessities in the wrong place can end up making cooking harder.

      Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Brooklyn Townhouse Full of LightDec 12, 2011

      Herzog designed traditional kitchen cabinetry to fit in with the home's original decor. Inset doors, beaded face framing and butt hinges all pay tribute to an earlier style. Island countertop: WalnutCabinetry: CustomCountertops: CaesarstoneBacksplash: Subway tile from Ann Sacks
