This beautiful turn of the century-style kitchen uses
quartered white oak for its tight grain, and for historical
accuracy. Prior to finishing, the wood was distressed
to give it an aged and "well-used" look,
then finished in a custom stain and glaze. Though
the kitchen's style is very rustic, its layout and
design are in keeping with modern kitchens, and incorporates
the latest in today's appliances and conveniences.
Designed to fit within the polygon shaped room, the
cabinets distinctive angles accentuate and compliment
the room's geometry.
antique-reproduction glass cabinet doors,
glass shelves and low voltage lighting.
solid quartered white oak tongue and groove
Hulley Custom Color stain and glaze (also
used for the doors and trim throughout the house).
cleverly concealed microwave cabinet with door
panel that lifts up and slides into the cabinet.
top-cabinets above refrigerator/freezer have
doors that lift up and are held open with hydraulic
pistons for safe and easy access.
base cabinets with pullout drawers instead
of shelves, for better accessibility.
solid oak drawer boxes, mounted on heavy duty
concealed undermount slides for both a clean look
and long term durability.
