< | Turn of the Century-Style / White Oak Kitchen | >


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 beadboard.
• 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.
