Confirming that budget and beauty aren't always exclusive, the appeal of the Jansson kitchen turns on its very limited design vocabulary: a black & white color scheme and consistent proportions. The cabinet handles/towel bars might be a little on the thin side, but that's just me. The deep, inset drawers are great, and the circular accents bring a bit of fun to this corner installation. levahusfabrik.se
