Kitchen renovation - Ikea Abstrakt on top and Sofielund on bottom
Hi All - We are getting ready to embark on an addition and complete kitchen re-model. From the outside, our home looks like a red barn nestled among the trees. It is very private and one wall is entirely glass (sliding doors). This is the south side and we're pushing out one room from this side and building a deck all around it. My husband is Dutch and we both love contemporary kitchens. The kitchen is being expanded and re-modeled too. We've chosen Ikea Abstrakt cabinets (glossy) for the top and Sofielund for the bottom cabinets and islands. Now at a loss for backsplash, floors, and counter tops. Am thinking a very light countertop and one that is not shiny. Other than that, at a loss. While we love contemporary, lots of wood and natural elements about our house and want something complementary. No butcher block counter though :-). Any ideas and suggestions very welcome!
