White Shaker Cabinets with Gray Island

Kitchen Design Elements

When we began designing this kitchen we had a relatively clean slate, because it was for a new custom home.  Although we did have to stay within the architects predefined floorplan, we still had a lot of flexibility.

Two Tone Cabinets & Counters

Selecting the door style for this kitchen was simple.  The overall feel of the home was a transitional craftsman and we wanted include as many Tacoma design elements as possible, so we went with a standard white shaker cabinet for door style. 

To add interest, we kept the same door style on the island but changed the color to Harbor Mist which is a light but warm gray. Click here for our door styles or here for our color options.  

Complimenting the two tone custom cabinets, are the two toned maintenence free quartz countertops.  On the white kitchen cabinets, we used Pental Uliano, which is a gray countertop with a subtle white marbling and on the gray island cabinets we used Pental Misterio, which is a white countertop with subtle gray veining.

Because both quartz countertop colors came from our square foot collection we really maximized the value of the clients budget.  Staying true to the craftsman theme we used a standard flat polished edge on all the countertops to exacerbate the clean and straight lines of the shaker cabinets.

Apron Front Sink

No Pacific Northwest crafstman kitchen is complete without a cast iron apron front sink.  Although there are many attractive fireclay and stainless steel
