This beautiful beach cottage-style kitchen features simple cream-colored raised panel cabinets with petite silver handles and classic white subway tile backsplash. The home’s open plan layout is such that the L-shaped kitchen’s double-level bar faces out into the large picture windows in the living area and overlooks the beautiful ocean views. The ocean view is mirrored in the pale blue used for the walls, which give the kitchen a cozy, cottage feel. Other elements contributing to the style are the white travertine kitchen tiles with matching black tile border around the kitchen island. Standing out from the light-colored kitchen are the grey granite used for the countertops.
