Custom Stain for the Win

Lighting, layout, and layers. This kitchen has it all which is why it is so stunning. The warmth of the wood pairs perfectly with the elegant darker island which itself is a beautiful contrast to the lighter waterfall countertop. Each element works together seamlessly to create the perfect place for the family to gather.

A kitchen layout plays a critical role in the ease of traffic flow and this kitchen has one that makes it simple for multiple people to come and go at the same time. Ample natural light fills the kitchen plus integrates with the multiple sources of artificial light such as puck lighting in the upper cabinets and extruded lights in the floating shelves. The homeowner opted for all drawers in their kitchen island which gives them maximum use and ease of access. Having an appliance garage built into the upper cabinets means less clutter on the counter and paneled appliances unifies the look of the design. One additional unique feature in this kitchen is the custom stain that was created to match a sample the homeowner submitted to our team. It is the perfect compliment to the Sherwin Williams Black Fox color chosen for the island and makes an elegant two toned kitchen that is sure to continue to wow their guests.
