If replacing you current kitchen cabinets would require too much work or cost, you van also consider applying beadboard cabinets on the kitchen island. That way it will serve as an accent piece for added detail in the kitchen. Placed in an open plan space, the kitchen island not only serves as an additional worktop and small dining space, but also as a “divider” between spaces. The use of beadboards on the counter face gives the kitchen island an added texture and pattern, emphasizing the separation of the areas without having to use partitions. The cool white palette used on the kitchen cabinets and counter help make this kitchen more flexible & easier to match with more modern furniture pieces.
This kitchen features cream-colored cabinets with black iron handles. Cream is also used in the beautiful arch moldings over the wash basin window and the plate rail above the range hood. The centerpiece, topped with a trio of crystal glass pendants, is made of a distressed wood base in green tones and Neoclassical carvings and a cream granite stone countertop. The honed travertine floors laid out in a random course bring together all the elements of this cream-colored country style kitchen.
