An abundance of natural light from the breakfast area highlights the bright white cabinetry and decorative range hood. The striking granite countertops heighten the elegance in this already stunning kitchen.
Keep your range of height flowing so that the highest elevated items sit towards the back of the table and the smaller, squatty dishes sit towards the front.

"Soapstone is an amazing natural stone option for kitchens," says Anissa Zajac of HGTV's House Seven. She added a giant slab of soapstone on her range backsplash and a custom-planked hood that spans the length of range area, making it the statement piece of the kitchen.
A stunning range hood with elaborate molding and decorative medallions creates a focal point in this French country kitchen. The tile backsplash behind the cooktop coordinates with the range hood for a seamless design.
