• The most difficult part of the project was figuring out all the technical details to install the glass counter-top, which would weigh about 300 pounds!
• One goal was to avoid seeing the cabinet supports through the glass. The glass itself proposed problems because it had a wavy texture and separate confetti glass that could be added to the bottom. Therefore, we needed to add something below it.
• A combination of a darker cherry and some painted cabinets with a cherry glaze look nice with their Oak trim throughout the home.
• A glass cabinet was added on the other side of the ceiling soffit to make it convenient for entertaining guests and close to their dining. It also made use of an empty wasted space.
• LED strip lighting was installed on a triangle piece of wood inside the glass cabinet that shined onto the glassware inside the cabinets.
• The lighting subcontractor also installed LED lighting between the glass holders for the wine glasses, so the light would shine through the wine glasses.
• The lighting in the new cabinet creates a nice ambiance in the evening.
• The kitchen was designed so everything has a home: spices, oils, knives, cookie sheets, awkward utensils, silverware, tupperware, trash receptacles, and a “stash spot” for when guests come over. Large pull-out drawers are great for pans and lids particularly on the back side (bottom of picture) of the island.
