  • Cabinets: All custom by a local shop here on Long Island, applied moulding/raised panel doors. The perimeter is maple with a MDF center panel...based on the cabinet maker's recommendation to avoid the usual cracking with an old house, non-air conditioned. That was a BM color, ?? grey, can't remember the exact color name but I could look it up, and they are treated with a brown glaze. The island, 4x8, is solid cherry with mahogany stain.
  • Granite: Wild Sea from ABC Stone based in Brooklyn, also in Westbury where we found our slabs.
  • Wall Color: BM Sag Harbor Grey
  • Backsplash: Florida Tile 3x6 in Parchment
  • Leaded Glass: Andersen Art Glass Diamond Lights
  • Island Stools: Awesome deal from Ballard last summer- $79. each!
  • Handles: Baldwin Melon series in Satin Nickel
  • Appliances: Thermador Pro Harmony 36" all gas range, SubZero 736TCI refrigerator, Dacor electric/pure convection wall oven and microwave, Miele dishwasher, Best by Broan 42" island hood, Everpure water filter system under sink.
  • Faucet: Rohl/Perrin and Rowe with filtered water tap and soap pump
  • Sink: Franke GNX 120: It's a huge double sink. Left is 10" deep, right is 7" deep. I have no problems with splashing, in fact I think the faucet is just so perfectly designed that the water seems to fall in the perfect place. I know that sounds strange but it's such a difference from the Moen down in the basement into my other 10" deep sink. Splashes all over the place!
  • Floor: 5" wide plank red oak. You see in the pics how we transitioned from old to new. It's one of my favorite parts of the renovation!
  • Ceiling Fan: From HD
We expanded from what was two rooms: kitchen and glass-surrounded breakfast room. (previous owners enclosed the porch and put a real foundation under it as an extension.) The breakfast room, which housed the west wall of the house making it literally unbearable all summer, is what convinced us to make it all one room with much less glass. The new space became 20 x 15, all kitchen. We got rid of the kitchen table, but we have a dining room on the north side of the house. The kitchen and DR are separated by a 42" high half-wall which we treated with matching wild sea granite. That half-wall has KM natural oak cabinets which open into the DR. They don't match but they blend into the floor so it's all good.

Who made your cabinets on Long Island?

It was Cabinetry by Design, I think now called Ciuffo Cabinetry - Gary Ciuffo. Very professional and very nice.

We're about to do a kitchen remodel and can't decide between putting the sink or the range in the island. It's a large island and we need to put one there, just can't decide what one would be better after living with it. We were going to do the range so we could cook and entertain and talk to people but then I realized I spend more time doign the dishes and that might be nice to have someone to talk to.

Do you have problems with splattering people or the steam bothering people sitting on the other side? Do you have kids? Does it ever seem dangerous?

Any insight would be helpful! Thanks, Afton

Your cabinets are beautiful!! Are your doors inset, full overlay or partial overlay? I can't tell from the picture.
