    The counter tops are Corian Glacier White. They have a softer look than engineered stone.

    Yes, it was custom cut by a local stainless steel company.

    The color is Benjamin Moore Wickham gray (it looks a bit more greenish online than in person).

    The space for the stool on the long side of the island is about 27". This provides enough space for a stool to easily fit under the counter and to comfortably get on and off the stool.

2. Warm and Bright Designer: Ellen McKennaLocation: Jamestown, Rhode Island Size: 192 square feet (17.8 square meters); 16 by 12 feet (4.8 by 3.6 meters)Homeowners’ request: A modern, beachy, light-filled kitchen added on to a 1970s beach house. Modern features: Cherrywood flat-door cabinets with finger-pull handles for a clean, minimalist look. Simple flat window casings. Floating shelves. Brass pendants. Ash floors stained white. Penny tile backsplash on one wall. Stainless steel backsplash above range. Why the design works: Lots of perimeter countertop space and good flow around the island make cooking with multiple people possible. The ceiling pitch and beams of the new kitchen addition match those in the existing living and dining room. Designer Ellen McKenna carried the new flooring in the kitchen through to the original house for seamlessness. The new kitchen also opens to an existing deck off the dining room to make traffic flow during parties better. Designer secret: “Renovations or additions should look like they were a part of the original space,” McKenna says. “It is important to keep the scale of the new space in proportion with the old. Matching the ceiling beams, windows and casings to the existing helped make a continuous flow between old and new.”“Uh-oh” moment: “I received a call from the contractor when in the framing stage of the project, telling me the door I had specified—not ordered yet—would not fit in the space,” McKenna says. “I got to the site with my drawings—which clearly showed the door would fit—and a tape measure to find out what the problem was. The foundation had been poured 2 feet shorter than the drawings specified. Uh-oh! Back to the drawing board. Thankfully the windows, sliding door and cabinets had not been ordered yet, and I was able to redesign the room, shifting the elements to fit.”Also on the team: Keith Ronchie (contractor)Windows and door: Andersen; cabinets: Cabico; Isaac pendant in natural brass: Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.; countertops: Corian; penny tile in gray and yellow: Waterworks; sink: Silgranit in white, Blanco; faucet: Concetto, Grohe; range and hood: Wolf; paint: Wickham Gray, Benjamin Moore
