I am think of doing my kitchen in similar colour. I want a grey top island bench but the back wall bench to be white with all white cupboards. The splash back to match the island bench and the front panel of the island bench to b white??? What do you think

This is a gorgeous kitchen, and reversing what has been done here is fine. Success in contemporary design is ensuring you are confident with it, repeat it, over and over, like tin these kitchens (below). Your accent colour is also equally important, as in your dream kitchen, the floors there are bossing the space around - you may tire of that, and it isn't an easy change. Whereas a bold paint colour or accessories is an easy fix if you tire of it. LOVE your choices and stick with them, end result will be so worth it. Suggestion for you on hardwood floors in kitchens, be prepared to get dents and scratches, you drop utensils, dishes break - and, you should add small area rugs around sinks, to catch drips, as you don't want water sitting on the hardwood - it will wreck the finish. Good Luck!

Hardwood floors are great in a kitchen. I agree that they will get beat on, but they can take it!

It appears to be Corian or equivalent - and just the edges are built up to appear thicker.

Ikea has some inexpensive LED strip lighting, if i recall they even have some with color controls... worth looking there.
