The uniform and simple size and shape of the cabinets in this modern kitchen give a sense of order and organization -- and who doesn't want that in a kitchen? With the white backdrop, the custom kitchen island stands out as the star -- and don't let the illusion fool you: This island is inset with blonde wood. That's not the floor you see shining through. What a clever way to tie the room's elements together!
Blonde-colored wood cabinets and floors give this kitchen a monochromatic, unified look. Green stone countertops on the island and an olive tile backsplash inject a small does of color. Wood slat bar stools sit underneath a rolling island.
Slate-grey countertops and modern appliances are a striking counterpoint to the natural-wood style cabinets and blonde hardwood floors. An expandable dining table gives the home owners flexibility and saves space.
