The dark wood cabinets and cupboards along the walls of this kitchen are set off nicely by the cream and grey tiles of its floor. Set in a herringbone pattern, the tiles lend a clean and light air to what could have been a gloomy and dark kitchen. A strategically placed curved sliding glass window lets outside light shine on to this kitchens granite topped island bar for a nice reflective sheen. Decorative glass inlays in the paneled cabinets break up the monotony of the otherwise all dark wood paneled cabinetry. A mosaic inlayed backsplash and white marble oven hood are a cheerful touch to the work area.
