You spend a lot of time in your kitchen so when designing make it a priority to make the space not only beautiful but also functional. Use different materials to create interest and texture and choose a pallet that complements the rest of the design. Here we used white herringbone splash back tile paired with a black undermount sink and gooseneck mixer. Mixed with the light stone and VJ accents it has a real coastal feel which we love. Add to that the huge counter space and the stand-alone cooktop and this kitchen is as functional as it is beautiful.
