Colors and Design Elements Blend Natural Elements with Elements of Modern Design
This beautiful, eco modern kitchen is the focal point for the house. With natural elements, such as the live edge wood shelving, the natural green and yellow of the walls and the wood trim around the doors and windows, and the modern touches like the clean lines and smooth edges of the cabinets and the countertop, this design perfectly encompasses the homeowners' desire for a kitchen that reflects their love for nature as well as their attraction to the modern design style.

After giving thought to the cabinets' exterior, turn some attention to their intended use and interior features. "It used to be that we would place cabinetry in the room and make it functional," says Al. "Now every cabinet has a purpose." There are pullout drawers for pots and pans, oversize drawers for baking sheets and even high-tech under-counter cooling drawers that keep beverages and snacks within easy reach. Accessories like lazy Susans, built-in spice racks, drawer organizers and other cabinet extras make the kitchen a much more efficient and enjoyable place. Photo courtesy of GE Monogram
