Modern Bistro Kitchen

Savvy storage combines with sophisticated features in this kitchen renovation.

Unnecessary bulkheads were removed to allow for custom-built cabinets that stretch this room's full nine-foot height. Marble countertops, restaurant-style appliances, tons of storage space and a stainless-steel apron sink elevate the kitchen from serviceable to sophisticated. A chic basketweave tile adds texture and warmth to the backsplash and complements the traditional hexagonal floor tiles perfectly.
