Old-World Charm

Clients sought to improve their builder-grade stock cabinet kitchen by creating a room that would reflect the Old-World style of their home. A toffee-colored stain on maple custom cabinets sets a warm, rich tone for the room. As the cabinets set the tone, careful attention was paid to every detail, right down to the glaze applied to accent the rope molding on the doors. The varying heights of the upper cabinets add depth and distinction to the design.

The kitchen’s centerpiece, a built up granite island featuring full-height wood-carved corbels, adds elegance and functionality. The beveled tumbled stone tile backsplash and light-colored granite help keep the room bright and airy against the dark stained woods. An intricate medallion design composed of brass and crackled glass tiles above the cook top compliments and completes the sophisticated style of this kitchen.
