To obtain a contemporary look in this kitchen, while maintaining lots of storage space and a welcoming warm feeling, we used a dramatic Gun Metal Ebony reconstituted veneer. The grain runs horizontally and vertically throughout the kitchen. The custom lighted soffit is made of matching material with a clean line pendant hood hanging at the center. This provides an interesting focal point and enhances the contemporary look of the kitchen. The fully integrated refrigerator and dishwasher have matching panels which blend with the rest of the cabinetry creating a beautiful, seamless look.
