This kitchen is flush with modern design elements, but it’s a strip of tile with post-modern flair that demands attention. The large format rectangular tiles feature iterations of artistic circles in orange and chocolate on an almond-colored background. The bench seating picks up on the hue from the tile. While the rest of the kitchen isn’t quite as sprightly it provides easy-on-the-eyes modern details that don’t overwhelm the space with additional colors or curves. The slab door cabinets, which provide strong modern design lines, have a dark peppercorn stain and offer lots of storage with no visual clutter. The two major horizontal surfaces – the beautiful high-definition laminate countertop and the maple floor – are both in shades of white, offering a sharp contrast to the cabinetry.
