Straight lines combined with a neutral palette of browns, grays and greens create a masculine look in this contemporary kitchen. Thin horizontal tiles of mosaic glass and stone comprise the backsplash that stretches to the ceiling with the chimney hood. Cherry cabinets in a dark finish bring out the darker tones of the backsplash while contrasting the light green of the walls. Sleek hardware drawer pulls extend the horizontal theme and their brushed nickel finish add shine to this kitchen’s palette. The frosted glass doors add texture and lighten the look of the upper cabinets while hiding any clutter that might be lurking.
Designed with ease of entertaining in mind, the kitchen boasts preparation and cooking work zones that keep the host engaged with his guests. With double wall ovens, multiple course meals are a cinch, and a 36-inch, five-burner gas cooktop makes stovetop cooking simple. With eating areas at both the island and a separate dining table, the guests are sure to enjoy themselves.
