Thoughts on Room Design:
My father always said, "If you don't have the time and money to do something right the first time, how are you going to have the time and money to do it
over?" Featuring beautiful Black Cosmic granite counter tops, center cabinet island with drop-in 4 burner gas range, built-in two-tiered spindle ladder
plate rack, lighted overhead cabinets, and polished oak hardwood floors this kitchen re-model gets it right.
Notice the attention to detail and design. The range of textures produced by the soft colors and warm accents add a distinguishing feel to
the kitchen. I love the Tuscan style Terra-Cotta tiles that are used for the back splash. These tiles give the kitchen an overall air of appeal -
like an old Italian farmhouse in the countrysides of Tuscany or Florence.
Cabinets might be the most important part of your kitchen design. It's important that the cabinets fit well in coordination with wall and floor
colors as they set the tone for the whole room. In darker kitchens where natural lighting is scarce or absent, the use of lighter pigments and
strategically placed lighting offset the lack of natural light. The use of lighting in the upper cabinets is a creative way to provide ambiance
and to shed a little light to the room.
To add depth and proportion to the tall overhead cabinets, this designer used our
ET-88272 crown molding. The acanthus leaf pattern used extensively in ancient Roman Architect is an enduring symbol of life and immortality.
Here it is used to add an extra touch of elegance to the already gorgeous kitchen. And, as with all our polyurethane moldings, this molding will
endure the test of time for generations to come

How to Install Crown Molding
In Medieval times, corbels were thought to ward off evil. Often gracing old cathedrals and churches corbels demonstrated the contrast between
dark and light. Nowadays, corbels are a great decorative element and can add a classic touch to any room. Thoughtfully placed corbels accent
the arch above the built-in plate rack in this amazing kitchen. If you like the look, you can use a corbel similar to our
CB-1978 Polyurethane Corbel; or, you can choose from over 120 different designs from our
corbel collection. Pick one that suits your taste and decor.

Because there is already so much detail, I would suggest using a baseboard that is functional yet not overly elaborate. We have one that fits the
bill - ET-8901
