Custom cabinetry and island by Crown Point Cabinetry

Crown Point Cabinetry is known for its high-quality inset cabinetry, and its signature 1-inch thick face frames, doors and drawer fronts. In this kitchen, Crown Point’s designer specified Sherwin Williams’ Truly Taupe paint for the cabinets and island. The contractor crafted the top of the island from salvaged wood.

Gleaming marble by Onyx Marble & Granite brings sophistication and elegance to this fresh-as-cream kitchen. Here, White Rhino marble graces the island, counters and backsplash. To give the island a bit more weight as the centerpiece, the stone fabricator used a mitered edge built up to a three-inch thickness, and two inches throughout the rest of the kitchen.

The experts at Snow and Jones, Inc. adore this Rohl sink and faucet setup, and we have to agree. This Modern Shaker Farmhouse sink has a traditional style yet gives the look an update with its clean lines and additional interior sink space. Each sink is a custom, unique piece and is still made by hand in England. The pull-down faucet, by Perrin & Rowe Holborn, is also made in Great Britain. The maker uses regionally sourced solid brass and ceramic components, and time-honored hand casting and polishing techniques. This faucet, finished in Satin English Gold, casts a modern note with its beautiful, soft glow.

These days, a fresh-air skylight is undoubtedly the crowning glory of a gourmet kitchen. This compact, feel-good kitchen opens up to the elements via its VELUX fresh-air skylight. Not only does the skylight bathe the space in sunlight, it also provides ventilation, which is important for cooking and cleaning, as well as all-around living. VELUX skylights can also eliminate or reduce the need for windows, freeing up wall space for storage or other kitchen amenities.
