Open Floor Plan Kitchen Remodel

The countertops are 3-1/2” thick Quartzite, a natural stone. Four slabs were required to achieve the waterfall sides the homeowner had her heart set on. She fell in love with the Quartzite slabs in the stone yard, but they were tagged by someone else. However, the slabs were surrendered, and the homeowner could get the ones she wanted. However, one of the very heavy slabs fell during delivery and broke. A nationwide search was required to find an exact replacement, but they got it.

The kitchen remodel included a new island. The island included in this kitchen remodel was crafted by Brighton Cabinetry from Walnut with a Gunpowder stain. The sink in the island has two faucets – one is a reverse osmosis water system for drinking water. Also visible in photo below low-profile HVAC registers in the ceiling. Measuring 4 feet x 3/4″, they are called linear slot diffusers.

A custom made door features live edge Walnut planks on sliding barn door hardware. The slabs are sealed in epoxy to create the unique door.

Rather than one dishwasher, the homeowners opted for two dish washer drawers.

The hammered zinc vent hood was custom built to ensure it’s wide enough to cover the 60” range.

The dark beams added to the ceiling are “beetle wood”, a type of pine naturally distressed by beetles. Wire brushing further accentuates the distressing.
