Definitions of “modern” vary widely, but when we think of modern kitchen designs, we often think of frameless cabinets, sleek and simple hardware, strong horizontal lines and a lack of ornamentation, with the natural beauty of the materials shining through. The cabinets look despite the clean modern feel. The hood is stainless which offers a relief to the wall that cascades light into the space. The island is large which offers ample seating, much storage, and a clean lined book case which anchors the eyes with simplicity yet elegance. The oversize hardware provide a stately presence while not becoming distracting to the eyes. A sharp charcoal quartz ties it all together offering a hint or regality without effort.
