Project In Process: Essex Mudroom Cabinetry Gets Installed!

May 31st, 2013

Finally! Our sketches are coming to life. Not that long ago we shared some pics from Fred’s cabinet shop and before that our design development of the space – and now it’s finally here!

We have a soft blue/green color that will pop against a low key taupe/grey wall. When you walk into the kitchen the colors are reversed – the cabinetry color becomes the wall color. It’s a nice transition. The doors aren’t up yet – but you can see some really thoughtful details Fred wove into the custom cabinetry – air holes at the top that allow for ventilation top to bottom and even the bench seat isn’t solid intentionally so that air can flow. The backs are all cedar because, well – it makes sense! The floor will get a sea green slate large herringbone floor, and the tiles will go straight into the bottom of the cabinetry for easy shoe clean up. I can’t wait to see the lighting in the space too – it will really come together then. Stay tuned!
