Modern Rustic Kitchen Design

Glossy, horizontal white and frosted-glass cabinets give this kitchen contemporary appeal.

Sonali and Himalaya Jain of Oakville, Ont. won "Best Do-It-Yourself Project" in our 2008 design contest for designing and building this kitchen. Green-tinted glass subway tiles on the backsplash add a hit of colour and sparkle. The custom island boasts plenty of storage space and a white quartz countertop, while the dark Shaker-style Ikea cabinets behind it ground the space.
