Renovating master bedroom and ensuite. Do I match vanity to bed timber?
Kitchen island bench colour
Continue splashback on side walls?
What can I do with 80's wooden bar area?
Nailed it! Great advice from Mldesign.
yep, stunning. I been drawing something similar for a while and it's awesome to see your ab fab results after your OP. I got interested in some ikea solid timber benchtops, not nearly as nice as yours, and thought I'd combo them with black cabinets, white stone and white walls (just a "what if" design). so I totally love your kitchen. it's great how well the tiles look now compared to when you first posted, they really excite me! and the lightshades against the black wall. and what's that dining area I see? that smoked glass table top with timber trestles and black chairs and that black and white rug? where you get those?! I want to see more! congratulations, it's hard not to gush! big ups to Mldesign too.
Love it Natasha. You must be thrilled. It looks a little industrial, and somewhere you want to perch on those swivel top chairs for a macchiato.
thankyou so much for sharing. So worth posting to resolve your dilemma.
hey mldesign, whaddya reckon 'bout those sidewall tiles now? I fully get what you meant, but gee they work. I reckon it's the way the timber shelf doesn't wrap around with them (and almost hides at the black/white border were it not for the contrasting brackets) that makes their continuance onto the next wall offset the overall balance, and that's what I dig. you guys be proud, that kitchen is something special, oops, gushing again.
Nice compliments d steel, but none to me, I'd say the joiner and homeowners have created a well considered kitchen. More than thT, the confidence to go with something a little different and something that they are proud of.
I also like the side tiles, it's great as is, just the designer in me would have liked the drama of a full tiled back wall and the side wall to contrast against them. It would have made for high impact, maybe just taken it to that next level. Not that this is not already above the bar.
A really impressive kitchen, and Natasha has a real flair of styling her entire space.
you're too modest mldesign. sure Natasha obviously had the design sorted from the beginning, but as a forum discussion your input including that rendering was really generous and liked by all. tonight I been entertaining myself visualising your full tile wall as a backdrop for different lightshades. shadows, reflections, colours. good fun. thanks.
sorry everyone I know I go on a bit, but I wanted to thank mldesign again because before I read this I didn't know those tiles were called subway tiles and I've had a wee concept on my mind for years about a method for constructing cylindrical concrete rooms so now I got one heck of a kitchen design going on! cheers.
sorry I know I'm late but if I had seen your dilemma before I would have chosen to either change the tiles or paint a motif, this is because I cannot stand subway tiles, they are in every public lavatory in Ireland & Britain. I think your bench is amazing, job well done.
