more semi-handmade cabinets in the kitchen with white on top. but i'm worried if we stick with bamboo floors there will be too many different wood colors. Plus, white is cheaper and easier. But maybe Ikea gray is also good?
The modern kitchen in this home makes use of natural beauty with these zebra wood cabinets. The grain of this exotic wood gives the cabinets an ornamental quality without being overbearing-perfect for the no-nonsense feel of a modern design. The white countertops accent the grain of the wood, making it the showpiece of the space.
We underestimated the significance of overall design in renovating, but it was the beautiful and technical unifier underneath everything we were trying to accomplish. Thomas addressed the kitchen simply: hide the fridge, fill in the odd angles and edges of the ceiling, and provide more counter/storage space. This blew our minds. It cleaned up the whole space and looked like a kitchen that meant to be there, rather than an afterthought.
