Like I said earlier, we didn't really change the foot print of the kitchen, just changed from white to cherry. More of a modern look. The cherry cabinets were finished with clear pre-catalyzed lacquer so they will darken over time to a beautiful patina.
The pictures were taken before I was even finished with the install and it's amazing how much they have darkened since they were installed. Within a couple months they already began to blend with the other cherry furniture in the condo.
I had just finished putting back the final touches when I took these pictures with the new cabinets. The only thing left to do was to install a new piece of granite behind the slide in cooktop since they changed from a free standing stove to a slide in. We had a piece of matching granite cut that went behind the stove up to the microwave. When installed, it looked like it had always been there.
