Kitchen remodel in the Gold Coast:  By relocating the refrigerator to a single appliance wall, and emphasizing the horizon level by contrasting the light counter-top and backsplash against the dramatic Snaidero cabinetry, we were able to open up the dimensions of this kitchen without actually gaining physical space.  The new layout feels lighter, larger, and more open.
