The new, improved but old-looking wormy chestnut is an integral part of the exact look we were looking for. Contrasting the shaker-style doors with the stunning black handles, 40-millimetre jet-black Caesarstone benchtops and black two-pack kick panels gave the kitchen a confident, stylish air. They also tie nicely to the black Falcon cooker and Schweigen undermount rangehood. But to offset that crisp blackness and add a hint of irregularity, the client came up with the amazing Spanish backsplash tiles. When they’re lit at night, these tiles make a stunning statement.
