Warm, white shaker cabinets brighten up the room and create a contemporary vibe. A large pantry with roll out trays and cabinets with drawers provide lots of storage and make items easily accessible. An island in a rich espresso brown is a nice contrast to the white cabinets and it grounds the room. We tore out the floor tile in the kitchen and replaced it with hardwood to match the family room, which creates a cohesive space.
