2 A striking zebra wood top adorns the center island and ties the elements of this kitchen together in grand style. The built-in television provides a clean look, while the backsplash sparkles with a stunning blend of Imperial Danby marble and glass mosaic tile. Kitchen Craft cabinets in a light, glazed finish stand in pleasing contrast to the dark cherry finish on the island, while a chandelier by Kentucky Lighting & Supply and granite countertops complete the look. Appliances by Wolf include a Sub-Zero refrigerator, an elevated dishwasher and undercounter microwave drawer. Photo by Debra Hupman, Creative Kitchen and Bath. Design by Creative Kitchen and Bath.
3 Clive Christian cabinets in a cream base on the perimeter and dark green base on the island are glazed and accented with silver and gold leaf. The granite countertops feature a detailed edge on the island, which is mirrored in shape by the ceiling above. The kitchen also boasts a 48-inch Sub-Zero refrigerator, along with polished stainless steel sinks and fixtures by Waterworks. In the foreground, you can see a Crestron control system, which controls lighting, HVAC, the alarm and the stereo throughout the entire house. Design and installation by David Brandsen Construction.

It features perimeter cabinets in painted maple, along with dual islands in cherry with a mocha stain and black glaze. A custom-paneled, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf appliances and Latinum granite countertops work with the quatrefoil-patterned tile backsplash above the range.

5 Two adjacent sections of folding, 22-footwide doors from Architectural Profiles, Ltd. bring the outdoors in and serve as a key element to this kitchenâ€™s design. When open, they permit easy access to and from the adjacent entertaining deck. The island features under counter refrigeration, a dishwasher and can comfortably seat five people. Shaker-style doors feature a square sticking edge detail and the drawers are simple slabs with no frame.
