Two things never fall from grace one is a superbly cooked meal, the other is the inviting air of a classic kitchen. And where a kitchen's traditional looks are underpinned by contemporary functionality, good taste is assured for both decor and diner.

Detail Kitchens offers comprehensive design, remodeling and installation services, says co-owner Arlene Schiestel.

As the name implies, Detail Kitchens places every aspect of a design under close scrutiny.

Seen at the Abt Electronics Store in Glenview, Illinois, this kitchen by Detail Kitchens features custom cabinetry pieces from Plato Woodwork a company specializing in environmentally friendly cabinetry.

Detail Kitchens' creative application of finishes, moldings, and wood species is reflected in the traditional-look kitchen.

"For example, the cabinets all have beaded inset doors with exposed hinges," she says. "They are painted white, with a hand-glazed finish on the perimeter cabinets and quarter-sawn white oak on the island. Custom radiused crown moldings add extra flourish to the island ends."
