The 'greige' cabinetry is warm and inviting.  The left side of the picture illustrates the built in, 'found storage' where we added an 8" deep, floor to ceiling cabinet in the eating area.

Warm grey finish custom perimeter cabinets with contrasting island.

One of today’s most trendsetting looks was chosen for this kitchen. The earthy ‘greige’ cabinet is a combination of beige/brown and grey. Warm tones combined with a stained cabinet still shows the grain of the wood. This perimeter cabinetry is our custom Amish line, and the maple wood was finished with a grey wash and glaze. The island is a contrasting cherry wood in espresso stain which balances the space perfectly. The lighter quartz counters were paired with a high gloss white glass subway tile backsplash and distinctive vertical glass accent tile installed to the ceiling behind the cooktop.

To the left you will see a shallow depth, floor to ceiling pantry. This was ‘found storage’ in this kitchen. The wall is in the eating area and runs perpendicular to an exit to the backyard. Not only was this floor to ceiling cabinetry added where there was none, it allowed us eight more inches of wall space on the kitchen sink wall. It may not seem like much but it allowed for a longer countertop and more workspace PLUS we were able to install larger/wider upper and lower cabinets. With the built in look of the storage, it appears it was always a feature in this kitchen.

Another major change to the room’s footprint was the elimination of a peninsula and addition of an island. There are specificguidelines for clearancearound an island and this space did not have it! But we reduced the depth of the serving area which runs parallel to the seating at the island. You can see the reduced drawer and cabinet depth but at 12”, it’s really all that was needed to be organized and have a stylish area to create a beverage bar or serve food. The custom glass ‘X’ mullion doors really set off the space with a designer touch.

From left to right:  the shallow depth, floor to ceiling 'found storage' pantry in the dining area, more shallow storage beneath the serving area parallel to island, and last is the full depth storage with roll out shelves and custom interior to accommodate a chase in the wall.
