  • New maple cabinets extend to the ceiling, increasing storage space and extending the perceived ceiling height.
  • A modern green shade on the lower cabinets add a sophisticated color pop that perfectly accents the wood tones throughout the open concept space.
  • The curved lines of the statement range hood provide a striking contrast to the clean lines on the cabinetry and backsplash, while the light wood tone adds a touch of natural warmth and nuance.
  • The glossy artisan tile backsplash in tonal neutral adds texture to the overall aesthetic, while the hardware’s rich gold tones add a touch of classic style.
