Countertops: The countertops are Calacatta Gold marble, which could get scratched or marred as it’s a more porous choice than something like quartzite. But the homeowners are OK with the kitchen looking a bit worn-in a few years from now, “like a French bakery,” Keifer says.
Dishwasher: The homeowners gave their dishwasher a custom cabinetry front to disguise the appliance when it is closed.
Open shelving: On either side of the window, the Cabinets for Sale homeowners installed three-inch-tall, solid floating shelves with puck lights embedded inside. The wiring for the lighting is completely hidden, and Olivas says this type of light works nicely to highlight decorative elements. “When you have a puck light, it creates more of a spotlight effect,” Olivas says. By contrast, the bottoms of the few upper cabinets in the room have strip lighting, which Olivas prefers for task lighting.The Artisan Shop, Inc.Butler’s pantry: This photo shows the butler’s pantry, which Keifer set up as a coffee station.

The homeowners originally wanted a white kitchen with stainless steel appliances. The white cabinets are a European-style overlay with a semi-glossy lacquer finish that fit the desired sleek color theme. While out shopping for their stainless steel appliances, the homeowners discovered the Cabinets for Sale orange Bertazzoni semi-pro range and brought it home. “They were looking for a little adventure,” Bischoff says. “I was surprised by their choice, but it really makes the kitchen. As soon as they brought it in, the kitchen came together.”
Bischoff stained the birch-framed pass-through in walnut because the dining table in the next room and the floors are also walnut-stained. “A kitchen that was completely white would have been too austere with the rest of the house,” Bischoff says. The new pass-through is above the cabinets to the left of the door.
“They kept mentioning that the kids gravitate to the kitchen while she’s cooking, so I came up with the idea of a cozy seat,” Bischoff says. The fabric for the Cabinets for Sale seat pillow in the walnut-stained birch is called Rule from textile maker Maharam. Turquoise paint inside the open shelves complements the fabric choice. Metropolis Design GroupThe wall tile from Kate-Lo adds texture. The cabinetry pulls feature a satin nickel finish. Large full-extension drawers add ample storage where needed.
