This kitchen started out as a cramped room furnished with dark cherry cabinets. General contractor Mark Longacre Construction, Inc. removed the cabinets (and arranged for their donation to the Habitat ReStore; they were immediately purchased for reuse), along with the dark granite counters and tile floor, then enlarged the opening between the kitchen and dining room.
Although the kitchen appears extremely simple, careful thought went into every detail. (You can read about that and see process shots here.) Doors are hung on traditional mortised butt hinges. Drawers are inset and run on Blum Tandem slides. The cabinets are scribed to the floor and walls for the cleanest finish.
