Kitchen Cabinet Design

Project: Modern Colonial, Episode 16, Part 1

Bob focuses on the work being done in the kitchen. First, Darcie Miller from Wellborn explains the cabinet layout and outlines the design plan. Then, carpenter Paul Anderson starts the installation, while Bob is joined by John Wellborn, who talks about the cabinets themselves.

Later, Bob discusses the countertops with Evan Zgonis from Olympia Marble and Granite, and takes a tour of their fabrication center. Finally, the new granite countertop is delivered to the jobsite and installed.
Part 1: Kitchen Cabinet Design
Darcie Miller (from Wellborn Cabinets) explains the kitchen's design. It's all built around the center workstation, where the cooktop will be. This is part of a work triangle, which includes the space for a refrigerator and stove and easy access to the sink.

The Wellborn Cabinets that are going in also come with a crown molding and dental insert. On the corners of the island workstation are four columns with a base molding for support. Decorative solid wood corbels attach to the tops of the columns for additional support.

The cabinets have been finished with a cream color to give them an antique feel.
