In this kitchen, a large window provides lots of natural light to the mostly wooden kitchen. Exposed shelves are used to store recipe books, and the kitchen has achieved a contemporary look by not including hardware on the cabinets.
Make your walls a focal point by cladding them from floor to ceiling in mosaic tile. In this kitchen, light blue mosaics complement dark cabinetry. To keep the kitchen from being too busy with so much tile, the cabinetry was kept relatively unadorned.
