The designers refinished the existing kitchen cabinets in a crisp white and light gray accent island.

The open plan of this white kitchen helps keep the interiors bright, while also creating a greater sense of spaciousness. The black stools at the bar draw the eye upward to the unique black light fixtures in this white kitchen with black countertops.
