—custom Hood & Cabinet Install—
We designed a custom frame around the hood that we would wrap in sheetrock for a very clean look. At this point cost effective options drove the design. Additionally we sub-contracted the sheetrock, painting, installation of the Carrara marble and quarts counter tops to bring the rest of the kitchen into its finished stages.
We installed the majority of the cabinets and sub-contracted a little help towards the end. We are not shy to ask for assistance if we feel someone else can do better through their years of experience in specific work. Nor are we shy in giving credit where credit is due.
This kitchen is gorgeous and the hood as large as it is (48"wide!) doesn't take front and center as one may think it would or could. It falls away and lets the rest of the kitchen sing. We are proud this very simple design allows the rest of the kitchen to shine as bright as the light that enters it.
This residential Whidbey Island Kitchen is actually a relatively small space made to feel large with its big windows, no bulky fridge stealing the show and slim antique island running down the middle. Additionally the two tone cabinets help anchor everything while leaving a light floating feeling all at the same time. Another win win with our design eye. The original design for this kitchen was far from how it ended up and through the construction process and working in the space it became apparent there was a better design to follow based on the land, the light and the overall feel of the home.
