Home Design: Sleek and dramatic, Merlgen’s smokey grey kitchen cabinets in high gloss
It’s modern, stylish. The grainy, moody charcoal cabinets in high gloss finish for the kitchen embraces elegance and drama. This is what the young couple aimed for in their new house in a Davao village.
From the Merlgen’s library of materials, she chose the Acrylic Dark Silver with Grain for the cabinets and the top-of-the-line Bianca Carrara Quartz for the countertops. The latter was what she fell in love with on the first visit to the showroom, never swaying even if other choices were presented.
Chic and sleek in grey, white and black, the
kitchen blends seamlessly with the home’s formal vibe. Appliances, also in
silver in black, are fitted into the cabinet layout. The high gloss silver-grey
cabinet faces reflect illumination to add brightness to the space.
The mosaic backsplash in colors that borrow the tones around the room provide an interesting detail to the look, while the white quartz countertop that mimics the flooring, provides a refreshing vertical break to the all grey corner. More importantly, the counter and overhead cabinetry furnish ample storage for the couple’s kitchen and social essentials.
The island counter of the same finish, while adding extra storage and food preparation area, serves as an extension of the main dining room’s social function. It doubles up as a cocktail bar, breakfast counter or even a buffet area.To tie up the connecting rooms further, accessorizing it with bar stools that replicate the make of the dining room seats is a brilliant idea.
