Open yet Private

Versatile Caesarstone quartz countertops are durable and require no maintenance. Outside, a masonry wall protects the open kitchen and living room from street view.

Lighter Side

Custom birch cabinetry and a sleek island contribute to the kitchen's modern design.

Room to Grow

By expanding the original design by two feet, the open kitchen has optimal room for guests to gather around the island.

Shades of Gray

The transition from kitchen to living room is seamless while the gray tile backsplash and gray couch tie the two spaces together.
