Contemporary efficiency kitchen in Maui condo

Sometimes the footprint can not be changed (concrete walls and ceilings). This 48 sq. ft. kitchen was transformed using creative layouts and smaller scaled appliances. The full size range was replaced with a GE Advantium oven and 24" induction cooktop. The upper cabinets are tiered allowing for deeper storage at the top without creating a "cave" feeling. The custom cherry cabinets received a "coffee" stain and the door and drawer grains were carefully lined up for continuity. The flip up doors allow for easier access (there are limiters on the uppers for easy reach). The glass shelf above the induction cooktop is Starfire, low iron glass (less green color). There is LED rope lighting under the wall cabinets to lighten up the countertop. The overhead light is much brighter and more contemporary.

Aloha and thank you for asking.
These custom cabinets are a stained cherry. It was a custom stain and we were thrilled when much of the wood looks like burl wood. The cabinet maker lines up the grains so that they match. A beautiful touch.
The wood is finished with a matte polyurethane. It is not shiny, but it is durable.
