3. Modern all-white 4G cabinets with kitchen island
This kitchen carves out a clean, clinical space that contrasts with the rest of the open floor plan.

A mirrored backsplash is used as a continuation of the fully mirrored wall panels in the living room.

The neutral tones give a stylish and modern feel and have been paired with black countertops to up the cool factor.

9. Steel and stone inspired kitchen cabinets
This inspired idea brings the rough, cool feel of stone and steel into the kitchen.
