    River View Cherry Kitchen

    Our River View project is complete! For this remodel, our client decided to go with warm cherry cabinetry, a classic white apron front sink, granite countertops and stainless appliances.

    Our client’s main goal was to bring the outdoors inside, which was accomplished by designing in three major windows above the sink area.  A great mini indoor garden was set up in the hutch to the left of the sink, which really adds a great touch of nature in the kitchen area.

    The best part about this job was the feedback we received from our happy clients. Here’s a testimonial from the homeowners:

    “We are thrilled with our kitchen!  We very much enjoyed working with Tena and the people at Kitchen and Bath Details.  They guided us through the decision and selection process without imposing on us.   Through our meetings, Tena gained a sense of our style and what we wanted so that she could help us on the couple of choices where we needed another opinion.  We couldn't be more happy the outcome and are planning to work with Tena again as we start to think about updating our bathrooms.”

    Bullivant Farm Kitchen & Bath Remodel

    Our Bullivant Farm project started back in 2008. We worked with In-House Custom to remodel three bathrooms and spruced up the kitchen with gorgeous new countertops, fixtures, etc.  Our clients were extremely happy with the results! In the early months of 2011, this beautiful home was destroyed by a horrible fire (everything but the Master Bath – pictured below). Although the circumstances weren’t great, we had the pleasure of working with these wonderful clients again to rebuild the home. The kitchen was done in a combination of StarMark and Medallion Cabinetry, beautiful green granite countertops, SubZero refrigeration and a Wolf cooktop. The end result is breathtaking!

    Allen's Point Castle-Like Kitchen

    I have just completed a project in Marion that began with a torn page from a magazine and the wish for a “castle-like” atmosphere. My Clients fell in love with the grand mantle piece in their inspiration photo (see below) and had to have it in their home. Here’s where my job begins! I needed to bring their dream kitchen, shown in the magazine photo, to life.

    First step: Identification

    I did a bit of research and the inspiration kitchen featured a deep stained cherry cabinetry with a heavily-detailed, traditional-style, raised panel door.  As for the countertop, the display kitchen appears to have used a green marble (which we all know is not rated for use in a kitchen, right?).

    Second step: Product Selection

    While touring the Client’s beautiful, waterfront home, I discovered that there were existing mahogany built-ins and architectural details in other areas of the home.  This guided me to the obvious choice of suggesting a richly stained mahogany (from our custom Plain & Fancy line) in the new kitchen to keep with the style of the home. The mahogany definitely lends the same “feel” as the cherry in the inspiration picture, but creates a uniqueness that sets their kitchen apart.  The clients and I also poured over a ba-zillion granite samples trying to find one that would create the same drama as the green marble, without the maintenance nightmare. We stumbled upon Kerala Green, which worked perfectly!

    Third step: The Details

    Creating a grand kitchen space is ALL about the details. For example, I custom designed the 7ft. mantle to imitate the design from the inspiration kitchen. This mantle is not only a show-stopper visually, but also discreetly houses the super-powerful ventilation system and pull-out spice storage. I also specified several custom hand carved decorative pieces (placed strategically throughout the kitchen), beveled glass cabinetry, paneled appliances, and beautifully curved countertops.

    Finally: Voila!

    A phenomenal space fit for any castle and (in my opinion) more breathtaking than the inspiration! Our clients are in the process of moving into their newly re-modeled home and we hope to visit them again for a professional photo shoot.  More photos to come!

    A Fabulous Alternative to Marble Countertops

    Marble countertops... GORGEOUS!!! Marble countertops in a kitchen, not such a good idea. So many times I have clients come in and just completely fall in love with the look of marble. And, of course, I can't blame them. It is a beautiful natural stone. The colors and movement are exquisite. But, the maintenance and cautiousness that it takes to keep the stone looking up to its full potential is immense. Each time I have the countertop conversation with a client, I try to make one point as clear as I can. Marble is not for a home or a family that doesn't want to consciously have their countertop's "well-being" in mind at all times. (Please don't think I'm saying "no" to marble all together. In the right application, in the right home, it is superb!)

    A few months ago I started a project in Marion for a couple with young kids. The wife adored Carera Marble and so badly wanted to make it the countertops in her kitchen. After having the above conversation, we decided the upkeep was not for her nor the rest of her family. With that said, we moved on to other options. In the end, she and her husband agreed on a phenomenal stone called White Zito. It has the graceful, organic movement of marble and the colors couldn't be more perfect. So, we were able to get the look she was after without having to stop all red wine and/or kool-aid drinking in and around the kitchen island! The kitchen was installed last month and my clients are thrilled!


    For more articles about putting marble in your kitchen, I found the following website: http://kitchen-counter-tops.net/marble/index.php . It seems to be super helpful and has a wealth of information! Or, stop in at Details to see me and our countertop sample room!
