Light Blue Kitchen Corner

Trim painted pale grey has a softer look than crisp white.

House & Home assistant design editor Kai Ethier and her husband Andre retro-fitted second-hand cabinets to suit the cabinet depths they needed. Grey tile inserts put a modern spin on the classic black and white hex tiles. Kai had to cover the only heat vent in her kitchen with the cabinets, so she added a radiant floor heating system from Nuheat.
