The homeowners wanted to achieve a timeless traditional look. They decided to select white painted cabinets with a headboard back panel for a high-end look. The home wanted to display family heirlooms on top of the cabinets but didn’t want to deal with the dust that typically collects on upper cabinets. The solution was to build full height upper cabinets that extended to the ceiling, and add lights so that items could be displayed proudly. They chose a rather reserved countertop and decided to let the backsplash serve as their statement piece. The kitchen features a second sink and preparation area complete with a beverage center and on-demand hot water for tea.
