Streamlined Modern Kitchen

This high-traffic area is low-maintenance yet highly functional.

Two tiers of custom bamboo cabinets over the sink provide plenty of storage, which helps accommodate the home's spare decorating aesthetic. Insetting the lower tier of cabinetry over the range keeps the wall from appearing monolithic and frees up head space in the cooking area.
