Kitchens > Shea Project

With its simplistic lines and celebration of wood grain, this kitchen honors the Craftsman design aesthetic while adapting it to modern conveniences. The cabinetry in this project is "inset", meaning the door and drawer fronts fit within the cabinet's opening instead of overlaying its frame.  The door hinges are fully concealed similar to our full overlay cabinets. Combined with a flat center panel style door, this type of hardware promotes a cleaner finish visually as surface ornamentation is limited to decorative hardware and natural variance in wood grain. Walnut, an upgraded specie offering, is seen on the perimeter and finished in our "Wheat" stain.  Hallmarks of a custom kitchen are found from floor to ceiling: where possible, appliances are built-in and made to look like cabinetry, multiple layers of moldings are used above and below wall cabinets, and toe kick spaces are adorned with valances to look more like furniture.

Further visual interest is added by specialty cabinets and a painted island. The corner is softened by a wall cabinet appointed with antique glass and diamond shaped mullions. A deeper farm sink cabinet helps to break the monotony of the traditional "L" shaped kitchen. The island is painted in our "Putty" finish and features a built-in microwave, warming drawer, and a cozy two seat dining area.   Non-working frames on the back and base moldings continue to make the cabinetry more furniture-like in appearance. A walnut countertop relates back to the perimeter cabinets and helps unify the design.
