If the kitchen area is small you can use colours and shelves to make it seem larger and give the impression of more space. Install open shelving so that the kitchen doesn’t look busy or overwhelmed with too many things. Also use lighter colours since they make the kitchen space seem larger. If the L shaped kitchen is a large one, you can go with darker colours that make the kitchen seem warmer.
Rather than using square subway tile, Katie applied Heath tile in classic white. It's similar to subway tile but has an interesting hexagonal shape, puzzled together with dark gray grouting (a practical color to conceal any future dirt or stains). Custom wood shelves were made locally to break up the upper cabinets and to emphasize the beauty of the tiles. The porcelain slab countertops are a gorgeous addition to this modern kitchen. Did I mention they're basically unbreakable?
The built-in kitchen countertop is largely a 20th-century phenomenon. Wood, marble, and the occasional metal counters usually appeared only in the pantry, even in the most stylish 19th-century homes. When it was present, the worktop was usually a dry sink or a wood table, both of which endure as inspiration for the vintage-look counters we prefer today.
