Construction Details - Key Elements of the Project

Hardwood Flooring: One of prettiest features of this project is the 3” Brazilian Cherry flooring covering the wall, which creates a stunning backdrop for the cabinets & faucet.

Trespa Countertop: We wanted a very thin, barely-there countertop and were excited to discover Trespa, a highly compressed laminate material. It’s most commonly used as exterior paneling on modern buildings and for wall surfaces in commercial spaces. It made the ideal countertop because of its low-profile 7/16” thickness. The only downside was the nearly 10 weeks it took for the material to arrive from its country of origin, the Netherlands.

Sleek Fixtures: I paired the Torq wall mount faucet from Kohler with a crisp & clean stainless steel under mount sink by Blanco.
