Anchored by 3 large floor to ceiling pantry units this contemporary kitchen boasts a huge amount of storage, a large island with waterfall counters, glass display cabinet w/ lacquered interior, black hardware, and a hidden coffee/microwave station.
The countertops of this transitional kitchen are made of a natural stone called Tuscan River which is a marble but a very durable marble for the kitchen. The backsplash is by Sonoma Tilemakers, Zafu Iridescent glass tile. Vertical and horizontal applications were mixed to offset the range. European style cabinetry are made of Birch wood. The perimeter and bar cabinets are a dark custom stain while the island cabinets are a black paint with rub thru to the same dark custom stain as the perimeter. The doors and drawers are recessed panel with soft close concealed hinges. The guides are full extension undermount soft close. The glass is Industrex and the hardware is Richelieu bar pulls.
