To make up for lost island storage, new cabinetry stretches to the ceiling. Light walls serve as a quiet backdrop for strong architectural elements, pine cabinets, and an island with a 2 inch thick mahogany top. These elements, along with the cabinetrys distressed finish and the dark warmth of the beveled walnut wood floors, combine to create an old French feel, which blends with the rest of the home.
Sometimes less is more. If a big kitchen seems like an overwhelming sea of cabinets and cupboards, keep that in mind during the design process and opt for something more compact. In this kitchen, homeowners traded their bulky island for a compact Chinese table, it makes the space more maneuverable and offers an efficient work area.
