Kitchen - Slate

The kitchen is starting to take shape. All of the cabinets were installed with the help of brother-in-laws Zac and Danny over Thanksgiving weekend. They are a simple, natural solid slab cherry made by a company out of Iowa called Signature by Omega. The door style is called "Vail". There will be a simple 3" crown molding that will finish off the tops of all of the cabinets.

The appliances will all be stainless steel Jenn Air and the range will be a freestanding dual fuel 48" model by Five Star. They will not be installed until after the granite countertops are installed.

Denny Blaschko (DB Construction, Jackson, MI) did another fabulous job on the slate which is in our entire kitchen/pantry, hallway and foyer/entrance. The slate color is called copper/rust and the pattern of stone is called small versailles. After adhering them to their respective areas, Denny pre-treated using a pro sealer before using an un-sanded grout. He then finished the job by using two coats of a high gloss acrylic finish sealant. We used Benjamin Moore Aura paint with two colors called Morrocan Spice and Flawless (both Eggshell finish) and used a flat ceiling paint by Benjamin Moore in a color called Subtle.
