Urban Polish

European-style cabinetry in three different finishes sets the tone for this contemporary, urban kitchen. Along the back wall, a stained white oak finish frames a white high-gloss acrylic veneer for a sleek look. Brushed nickel hardware adorns the white oak, while the acrylic cabinets are a push-open style, creating a seamless look. Two islands form a highly functional layout, perfect for cooking and entertaining. The smaller island features the same acrylic cabinetry with a two-inch stainless steel countertop, while the larger island boasts a stainless steel finish on the front and white oak finish on the back, with a two-tiered countertop. The lower is quartz, and the higher is a custom-built walnut countertop. A 36-inch refrigerator, 24-inch freezer, and two dishwashers are hidden behind cabinetry-style doors, further reinforcing the polished design, while an oven, steam oven, warming drawer, and galley sink, all in a stainless steel finish, enhance this kitchen’s capabilities.
