This kitchen comes with graphite-toned cabinets that have a rustic, cement-like finish creating a unique space. A black granite kitchen top in conjunction with lights running beneath the cabinets finishes the kitchen perfectly.

2. Single-walled kitchen

A single-walled kitchen is particularly useful in homes where floor space is an issue. With the simple addition of lighted cabinets that occupy the entire wall, a kitchen top that doubles up as a dining table, and a black glossy backsplash you can make your kitchen do all the talking for you.
