I knew this kitchen would turn out wonderful when I first met the client. She was open to exploring the options available in new materials and was more than willing to "go that extra step" with the design that took it from great to amazing. The tall and upper cabinetry is a high gloss gray laminate and the base cabinetry is a composite rift cut white oak veneer with a custom stain on it. This was a difficult kitchen to plan for, as we had to order the cabinetry from two different manufacturers, yet make it look seamless. I think we accomplished this feat to perfection. These photos were taken by yours truly so the quality isn't fantastic. We plan to professionally shoot this project in about a month though, so I'll post those photos as soon as they're available!

Cooking appliances: Wolf induction cooktop, island hood, and oven/microwave. Sub Zero refrigeration. All integrated and all very sleek. We raised the dishwasher in a custom cabinet to elevate it 12" higher than normal. It is very easy to get into and out of. That sort of configuration is not always doable and is based on the space available to us. In this case, it worked perfectly - so why not??
The perimeter stone is quartz and the island is honed granite. Stainless steel upstands and back-painted glass doors also add to the character.
