MINIMALIST APPEAL

Tired of their dated kitchen, the owners of this suburban colonial were eager for a contemporary update with more pantry space, better organization, and performance appliances. Monochromatic cabinetry in matte white lacquer set the sleek new vibe. Not even handles interrupt the flow, as cabinet channels and push-to-open hardware uphold the minimalist look. Soft gray sintered stone (named “Zaha” after architect Zaha Hadid) cover the island’s slim counter and sink wall backsplash.

On the appliance mass wall, matching wall ovens, microwave, and coffee station stand front and center and ready for use. Double-door pantries on either side provide abundant room for organized storage. Integrated fridge and freezer columns occupy the adjacent wall, along with another tall pantry.

The hard-working island houses a high-performance cooktop and matching downdraft that pops up to efficiently pull away steam, smoke, and food smells. Below, deep drawer storage keeps pots and pans, spices, and cooking tools within easy reach.

Snuck into the far corner of the sink wall, a discreet countertop cabinet opens to reveal a convenient landing place for small appliances.
