West Yarmouth Retreat

This West Yarmouth Retreat, which started as a basic summer cottage, was transformed into a magnificent and luxurious summer home. Our clients were looking to create a space that was cozy for the immediate family, but also functional and suitable to entertain a large crowd. This was achieved by creating a spacious kitchen with a bar in the adjoining family room. Coastal hues were used to create a sense of tranquility, as this is their place to come and relax. The kitchen island was sized to create a dining area for four, with two stools on each end. This configuration works perfectly for meal time chats and avoids the dreaded “diner seating” effect. The seating arrangement also works well while entertaining, as it keeps family and friends out of the main cooking area, but not completely shut out of view or conversation.

It was so exciting to see this kitchen completed and see how happy our clients are with the end result.

Here’s a wonderful testimonial from our 'West Yarmouth Retreat' clients:

“We are in love with our new kitchen!  We searched all over southern New England for a kitchen designer with the right combination of good taste and a common sense. We found Kitchen and Bath Details on line and saw right away that they shared our taste in coastal living design. We knew they were the designers for our project after the first  phone call with Tena and a visit to their beautiful Mattapoisett showroom. Tena asked all the right questions and shared our vision. Soon after she presented a design that took a cramped and dingy space and made it a bright and cheery place equally adept at cooking, entertaining or just hanging. Then they worked closely with our contractor, Tom Finelli (Finelli Building, Inc.) to fit the design to the restored and renovated space inside our 1920 craftsman styled bungalow. Our house is wonderful, but the kitchen truly stands out thanks to Tena and kbdetails”

There is nothing better than happy clients!

Nantucket Inspired Kitchen | Custom Color Match

Here at Details, we want each one of our clients to have a kitchen that is unlike any other. We love that our custom cabinet line, Plain & Fancy, allows us to color match pretty much any piece of inspiration. We are now excited to announce that our semi-custom cabinet lines are following suit and processing custom colors as well!

In this specific kitchen, our client wanted to achieve the feel of a Nantucket cottage here in Mattapoisett. We selected soft, ocean like colors, and kept it fairly whimsical, to keep the formality out of the space. When our client was interviewed, she was so pleased that we were able to bring her dream kitchen to life. She also raved about the functionality of the kitchen. She loves how well the bar area in the adjoining room works for entertaining. It also keeps her guests out of the main cooking area. She also stated how much she enjoys the corner sink overlooking her back yard. Prior to the renovation, this space was the main doorway into the home. Everything was opened up and by doing so the house flows better and definitely seems more spacious. We are so happy to hear that we were able to create the kitchen of her dreams!

Custom Color Matching...
Do you have a paint color or piece of inspiration that you would like to see in your kitchen or bathroom cabinetry?
Here’s some information about the custom color process from Plain & Fancy:
 “Requests for custom color matches arrive at Plain & Fancy every day, often in the form of a paint or fabric swatch. Working with our encyclopedic color library, trained technicians with years of experience begin the matching process by selecting an existing base resin that’s closest to the desired shade. Using bench-top mixers, the base resin is blended with high-concentrate pigment tints, which are painstakingly measured out in 0.01 gram increments until the correct color is achieved. The resulting paint is then hand-applied to a pair of sample doors—one for the customer and one for our library—employing the same two-stage technique used on the production floor: first a catalyst is added to help cure the finish; then heat is applied to create an extremely hard and durable surface. Once the customer has approved the match, full-scale production can begin.
We’ve so perfected the Plain & Fancy custom color match system that we are able to recreate accurately almost any hue from any source a customer cares to send us, however bold or subtle, quirky or classic. Recent cases in point include a pair of well-worn (and much-loved) denim jeans; a sky-blue vintage 1950s coffee cup; a weathered gray painted roof shingle; and, most challengingly, the delicate shade found on the underside of a wild mushroom.”
