While this is a homey family kitchen, it is also very sleek in design, which is a nice design balance to see in a kitchen remodel l idea. Now, there are several things that make it sleeker than most. The first for me is the counters. The granite, reflective surface accentuates the natural lighting of the room, and is also a nice brown color. It adds some nice contrast to the wood cupboards around the kitchen. Speaking of which, there is ample storage in this kitchen as well as a pantry in the corner. This is a very accessible, efficient kitchen that is great for the whole family, and is also very pleasing visually.
