What Houzz contributors are saying:

The long, linear kitchen opens to the dining area, allowing the table to do double duty as counter space. A custom concrete counter tops Ikea cabinets. To make the most of the kitchen layout and ceiling height, the designers customized the upper cabinets to hang sideways, with doors that open vertically. A simple run of LED tape lights above the uppers provides ambient light and helps make the ceiling appear higher.Kitchen cabinetry: Akrum, Ikea; dining chairs: OH, designed by Karim Rashid, Umbra; dining table: Creative Union

Love the heavy 'chunky' table to be used as additional bench space. Adore the distressed door with turquoise in total contrast to colour of overhead cupboards. Different textures add interest.
