Home / Kitchen Design / Mad for Mod

tumblr_mbmkz6Gs5o1qh6qsxThis contemporary kitchen is an exciting fusion of color and texture. By shunning the standard and all too typical stark neutrals; instead, bringing dramatic contrast.

The kitchen is adjacent to the family room and combined eating area. Separating the space is a 6 foot knee wall with a bridge suspending V-shaped low voltage lighting. A multicolor glass backsplash sizzles under glass flip up doors.

The island takes center stage in the space. Besides providing additional storage and work space, the island houses a second sink and an additional dishwasher, making for easy cleanup. Its placement in such close proximity to the cooktop is no mistake either, allowing the homeowners to take food from prep to simmering in an instant.

Completing the modern yet elegant aesthetic is a buffet-style furniture piece framed in stainless steel that takes its place to the left of the doorway.  A honeycomb glass backsplash spans the distance between the granite top and the frosted-glass cabinets above.
