This U-shaped design has so many wonderful characteristics. The white cabinets and softer tone backsplash, give this kitchen a dainty, feminine feel. However, the large-sized island brings in the right balance of masculinity. The Typhoon Bordeaux Granite does wonderful job in toning down the presence of the island and brings the two styles together. The two chandeliers, mixed with the darker hardware on the cabinets, bring in the right accent to finish off the room. The dark and light elements are blended perfectly to create this traditional-style kitchen.
