In this kitchen, engineered hardwoods are paired with white cabinets and countertops and a live-edge walnut bar-top.
Crisp, white cabinetry surrounded by a navy blue drywall structure creates dramatic contrast in this kitchen prep area. Three recessed light fixtures provide task lighting for the space, designed so guests can mix a drink without entering the cooking zone.
Quartz countertops are gaining popularity in the kitchen for their durability, easy maintenance and attractive colors and patterns. In this kitchen, white quartz countertops and dove white countertops are paired with a live-edge walnut bar-top for gorgeous contrast.
Think beyond traditional finishes when choosing a hardwood floor for your kitchen. Wide-plank engineered wood floors with a slightly grayish hue lend a casual, rustic feel to this kitchen. An angled wood feature wall with open shelving adds additional texture and visual interest.
