Simple and elegant. Who says grey is boring? The shade is the ideal modern kitchen colour. This glass subway tile splashback brings a quiet elegance to the clean lines of this kitchen and echo the timber wall panelling above. Flecks of grey in the choice of benchtop and concrete flooring bring the look together but it’s the timber dining table and chairs that really add character.
Great idea, mine leaves so much more on my bench, wrote one. Added another: If I wasn’t in my jarmies already I’d be down at Kmart right now buying these – this is EXCELLENT! Tracey, I love you!

The butcher’s block island. Country kitchen with butchers block island. Perfect for country style kitchens or rustic home, a freestanding butcher’s block kitchen island bench can be picked up and moved, but is traditionally made of a timber heavy enough to hold it’s own against pushing, shoving and cooking. These can be as big or as small as you want, and can be added to any kitchen at any time.
Add Storage Include feature doors or drawers, or open feature shelves to the rear of the island bench. Not only does this look stylish, but it also provides extra storage space.Watch your sink size. Don’t have a extra long sink, as this will take up much-needed bench space and limits how you use the island bench,” says Patrizia. Go wide “Don’t go for a narrow depth to your island, as this will reduce the size and the area which you have to work from. And you may not be able to use bar stools if too narrow.”
Contemporary details. Timber tones in the oversized sliding glass doors carry the eye across the dining table and chairs. Concrete pendant lighting and slimline mosaic tiled splashback are simply elegant. The rug placed under the dining table absorbs sound, softens the space and demarcates the dining zone. Timber with copper details. Striking black cabinetry underneath the benchtop provides a sturdy base and anchors the activity beneath soaring ceilings. Copper details in the lighting and outside in the large plant pot bring the outside in and bridge the two spaces, connecting timber, metal and the stone of the benchtops.
