Michael Kitchen September 15, 2016 We created a well balanced and neutral design that gives a timeless look. The natural tile backsplash is accented with glass tiles and pencils to give interest without being overwhelming. A built in nitch above the range for accent. We pulled some cabinets forward and played with the heights to add detail. In the island, we incorporated a spot for the microwave to keep the countertops clear. The cabinets were continued to create a built in bench to maximize the use of the space.
