No doubt it’s the marble-look sintered stone slabs that steal the spotlight in this condo kitchen. The luxurious and durable manufactured stone covers the counters and creates a dramatic backsplash treatment.

On either side of the range, marble-look backsplash panels slide open to reveal storage nooks. To the right, a counter top niche carves out another storage spot, while a fully integrated exhaust fan disappears above.

Nickel-and-glass tall cabinets with lighted matte brown interiors make for glitzy display. Just beyond, a sizeable wine fridge finds a home once occupied by an old pantry door.

Glossy white perimeter cabinets pop against the matte brown veneer of the peninsula, integrated refrigerator, and tall cabinetry. The honed marble-look slabs repeat to create a dramatic display atop the peninsula—without interrupting the sight lines into the adjoining living area and river beyond.

The peninsula features an eat-in counter that extends into the adjacent TV room. Convenient under-counter freezer drawers and microwave save valuable counter and floor space.
