This kitchen design provides ample counter space with the black quartz counter top.  In addition to being a great storage, the wood cabinets with contemporary panels and handles pop out in great style against the grey hue on the wall and the tiled back splash.  The stainless steel appliances finish the look of a modern and serene kitchen with both aesthetic and function.  This kitchen design works very well with a small home that can benefit the most from an open kitchen combined with the living and dining area.
