I like this kitchen because it uses white in a fin way. I like the large tiles, even though I feel that that style of design has been done to death. It still looks good when done right. Now, as we work our way up the cupboards we still have a nice variety of white, but it does not produce an over intense glare. This is because we have a black dishwasher and black is part of the fridge, and therefore we have a nice mellowing agent against the dominant white color spectrum of the kitchen. The L-shape is great for space and efficiency, and I also really like the ceiling fan.
