What Houzz contributors are saying:
Similarly in this example, the “accent” cabinets in the middle complement the wood tone to the floors and island counter extension, so the palette doesn’t get muddy. You can see how the lower cabinets, tall cabinets and deep uppers don’t give a natural breaking point to change materials, so they look best as one seamless plane in charcoal.
Dramatic charcoal kitchen cabinetry gives the illusion of receding, helping the show-stopping island counter to pop. Made from a combination of wood and crisp, white reconstituted stone, the island is another sculptural feature in the home. It’s easily big enough for all the family and friends to gather around, so cooking in this home is a truly communal activity. This is a nice gesture that helps to highlight a lifestyle that includes casual dining to be shared with family and friends. Floor: American oak wood, Bunnings; countertop: Pure White, Caesarstone
