This dual finish kitchen was a treat to design and create. It was for a new home in Hamilton and the client was very interested in the design and custom finishes we have to offer.
Symmetry was important to the design of the kitchen, given the shape of the room is was contained in. The wood hood is the central design element, drawing the eye to the middle of the composition.
The island matches the hood, which is a gray stain on cherry. The client and I custom created this color to be exactly the tone and hue she wanted, transparent enough to show the wood beneath but also opaque enough to give it a good, rich color.
The upper cathedral mullion glass doors, coupled with the glass hutch, give the cabinets transparency and allows for showing off decorative stemware.
The result was a beautiful and elegant white kitchen warmed by the cherry stained hood, island and stained oak wood floors.
