Mixed finishes are a very popular option today. Often times this can be seen in a kitchen where the island cabinetry is finished with one material and the perimeter cabinets are finished with a contrasting material.
This private residence in Osoyoos, British Columbia demonstrates this design philosophy well. Heart Birch wood with a pewter stain finish was chosen for the island cabinetry while a frosty white paint finish was selected for the perimeter. The doorstyle used throughout is similar to a classic flat panel shaker door with one notable exception; a beveled inside edge profile. The bevel on the inside edge eliminates the flat edge where dust and dirt can accumulate, making cleaning an easier task.
Tall Angled corner cabinets were also provided in the dining room area of this project to tie the separate spaces together. These cabinets featured glass inserts in the upper cabinet doors allowing the customer to display their collection of fine china. Floating Painted shelves were also included near the range for extra display storage.
The vanity cabinetry supplied for this project continued the two finish theme. The master Ensuite maintained the same paint finish as the kitchen perimeter while the main bath cabinetry was finished in heart birch to match the kitchen island.
