This kitchen remodel is all about the hardwoods. While the hardwoods are often just one character in the overall scheme, in this case they are the main star. What makes them work so well is that there are appropriate spots of lighter color that help create a nice contrast, thereby accentuating the beauty of the wood. The lights on the ceiling emit a soft lighting that creates a lovely glow of ambiance. This also helps create a richer visual element that supports the beauty of the wood paneling and floors. While visually pleasing, it is also a very functional kitchen too.
