I'm semi-custom building a house. I am committed to espresso cabinets because I love their elegance. This the kitchen I am inspired by, but am wanting to avoid tile grout (this is NOT my kitchen, yet!) I have young children so I would like something that is easy to clean up. The kitchen is an open concept and the surrounding flooring will be an espresso hardwood. Carrying these hardwoods into the kitchen would be too dark. But what are my options for kitchen flooring? The builder doesn't do polished concrete, unfortunately. I appreciate your creativity!
