Inspiration, continued: We elected on oak cabinets, white Corian counters, and limestone floor for a natural but modern look.

Tip: It is easy to get a custom look with stock cabinets! For example, if you need a five inch deep cabinet, like we wanted for can goods and spices, just cut back a 12" deep cabinet and reinstall the back. Also, we wanted to get the tall upper cabinet look even though the cabinets only came in 30" and 39" tall; so we connected the cabinets and their doors the top and bottom open simultaneously.
