In the past few days I've received several emails wanting to see more detailed photos of our new kitchen which I first wrote about HERE. Maybe it's because people are stuck inside with all of this snow and need something to look at, because Meg over at Pigtown Design also did a "details" post about her friend's gorgeous bathroom.
You've already seen some overall shots of my kitchen, like the one above, in this earlier post. So below I'm sharing some up close and personal pictures of our kitchen...
The island with it's furniture style feet and shelves to hold bread baskets.
The prep sink faucet with it's cool little spoke handles that say hot and cold, I'm such a sucker for things like this!
Our island pendants with seeded glass globes.
The little shelf above the range where I can display a few pretties.
The brackets under the cabinets on either side of the windows over the sink. No that two tone paint thing isn't a new trend, it's because we haven't had the beadboard backsplash installed yet...soon I hope!
And speaking of backsplashes, here are the tiles that will be behind the range. If you're from Maryland you gotta have a crab somewhere in your kitchen!
The 1 x 1 tiles are onyx and reminded me of sea glass. The 4 x 4 sea life tiles are solid bronze and weigh a ton! The white bullnose will be used along with a decorative white pencil tile (not pictured) to frame it all out.
The dish pantry which hold more than just dishes and glassware...
It's also the super secret hideaway for the microwave!
Our cabinetmaker installed special hinges so that the doors slide back out of the way. Now you see it...
Now you don't! It's magic!
There are also little lights tucked inside each of the glass fronted cabinets to give them a warm glow at night.
They are perfect for highlighting special items, like these napkin rings my daughter gave me last year for my birthday!
Or even the mundane, like our everyday glassware.
The cabinet end panels were also given some nice details to make them look more finished.
Here's a close up of the top of the hutch. I love the little cut out detail.
In this photo you can see the beadboard which runs all along the back of the hutch.
And I love the graining of the tiger maple on the hutch.
The sink base juts out ever so slightly to accommodate the big soapstone farm sink.
The single bowl sink is big, deep, and I love love love it!
These latches from Rejuvenation not only look great, but they work perfectly and are easy to open and close. Except for the price tag, I wish I'd used more of them throughout the kitchen.
So there you have it! A telephoto tour of our kitchen. I hope you enjoyed it!
