This cherry and kitchen renovation was a complete gut remodel. The space footprint stayed roughly the same, but the layout was improved.

A master bath on the second floor directly overhead was renovated at the same time.



Kraftmaid stock cabinetry. Some of the slab doors received a custom groove detail

12"x12" slate floor. The same material was re-sawn to 4"x4" and dry-stacked for the backsplash.

The countertops are fireslate.

    Chris, I really like how the backsplash and tile floor bring that kitchen together.

    Agree that back splash is KILLER... counter to ceiling to.. when u say re-sawn, what do you mean? IMO a counter top away from hitting a home run..

    The floor slate is over CBU and thinset.

    We used 12"x12" material for the floor. It was not available in anything smaller, so we cut the same 12"x12" pieces down to 4"x4" for the backsplash.

    On the drawer fronts adjacent to the refrigerator. I like it, but why does the grain run vertical on one cabinet and horz. on the other? Just wondering.

    The left side is actually a door. The designer opted to have the door grooved to look like drawers to make it appear like the right side drawer bank.
