This kitchen started with good bones. These are quality, custom, solid wood cabinets with great detail and applied molding that made them the perfect candidate for this finish. The only alteration was to the island to make it all one level. The designer was actually able to find a very close match to the pre existing exotic granite top. All of the beautiful features of the furniture are enhanced and highlighted whereas before it may have been lost in the dark finish. This was a perfect style to enhance this client’s beautiful home and style.
The island was finished with a multi-layered dry-brushed finish. The color was inspired from colors in the granite tops.
These particular techniques requires a minimum of 10 steps to achieve this look. It combines several individual procedures to obtain this seemingly complicated finish.
