Like bathrooms, kitchens require regular updates to keep them looking fresh. Natural stone is still a popular choice, but new products, like concrete and acrylic countertops are providing homeowners with options that can show off their unique style with a simple installation.
In this house in Sweden, an IKEA kitchen looks super luxe with "Voxtorp" walnut veneer cabinet fronts, open shelving and a glossy acrylic countertop. A white tap by Nivito is a clever choice too as it effectively disappears into the white-tiled splashback. First featured in the April 2017 "Decorating" edition of ELLE Decoration.
