From Black-Gloomy To Sunny-Elegant

My new client has a kitchen with black granite countertop, black backsplash, black cabinets, and beige walls. Beige is a mortally boring color if it is not done right.
Even though the kitchen gets a good amount of natural light from a large door leading to the garden and one large window in the adjacent family room, the kitchen area is still gloomy and dark. This kitchen will not be dark and gloomy any more with this proposed color scheme and material. It will be sunny, light and elegant.

The client likes beige too much and there is nothing I can do about it. However,  as long as we change the color of the walls, it will make both of us happy. Cabinets will be repainted or built ex-novo. The backsplash will be made of marble pebbles composition, they come on a 12″x12″ mesh easy to install.

For the countertop, I choose a Silestone product, a man-made stone that combines natural quartz and other raw materials. Silestone is incredibly hard, resilient, durable, non-porous and highly resistant to staining caused by coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, makeup, and many other everyday products. It is perfect for the kitchen and bathroom and perfect for a modern décor.

I have used it in many of my projects, even in the laundry, outdoor kitchen and outdoor applications.

To make the kitchen area even more colorful and vibrant I thought of getting these
Julien Bar Counter Stools.
