This design concept was created to incorporate a functional living space with modern minimalism. A custom butcher block counter has space for stainless steel chairs and includes built in storage. One end contains a refrigerated wine rack while the other contains custom shelving. A small tile backsplash features white and gray tones to match the brightness of the white room and stainless steel appliances.
