This is another huge kitchen for a group of cooks to use, plus it is made even bigger by the huge swathe of white that the designer decided to us. One of the gamut’s you run if you decide to use white to this extent is that the space can end up being glaring unless you do some things to add balance. For example, the hardwood floors help balance things to a huge extent. They are just dark enough to maintain that balance too. If there too dark or too light then the color scheme would be all thrown off.
