Modern kitchens are once again going down the classic route and textural contrast is back in style, big time! With that mind, designers are turning towards both wood and natural stone to provide the necessary contrast even while keeping the ergonomics refined and cutting-edge.

Maintaining the white color on the cabinets and walls (the perimeter of the kitchen) and popping in some steel elements in appliances helps to keep the star of the kitchen the coral center island. But a thick white countertop throughout adds cohesion, even to cabinetry that is different. This is a key element – one of simplicity and consistency amidst design variations – of modern style.
Kitchen Backsplash May 11, 2017. Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles, and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets.

Knotted oak cabinets are coupled with eco-cement surfaces to paint a truly exceptional picture. Each knotted oak kitchen is specially treated with vegetable oils and waxes, and you can choose between either an unfinished look or polished lacquered surfaces.
