Soft + Sandy

This crisp kitchen boasts breezy, beige-colored cabinets with a striking, high-gloss finish. The airy cabinetry skips heavy hardware to allow the lacquered finish to shine in the space. A matte navy wall brings an edgy contrast and texture into the otherwise bright, neutral design.

White + Blue Beauty

Floor-to-ceiling, lacquered blue cabinets work together with a large all-white island to infuse this kitchen with high-style and personality. The rich blue cabinetry sports a lacquered finish that created punchy contrast in the space.

Glossy Gray & White

Glossy cabinet doors and backsplash bring dimension to the gray and white palette of this modern kitchen.

Crisp + Contemporary

Flat-paneled, high-gloss and undeniably gorgeous - it’s hard not to stare at the stunning storage in space. The snowy white cabinets are coated in a luxe, lacquered finish and serve as a stylish backdrop for the glamorous accessories that outfit this contemporary kitchen design.

High-Shine + Stainless Steel

Modern, stainless steel appliances are joined by minimalist lacquered cabinetry in this open concept kitchen. The inky cabinets feature a fashionable lacquer finish that mirrors the reflective surface of the appliances tucked into the space. A pair of copper pendants dangle overhead and matching, metallic copper canisters litter the countertops to continue the high-shine style used throughout the design.

Glossy Green

Join us in being green with envy over this show-stopping, eclectic kitchen design. Bright white walls play backdrop to deep, forest green cabinets in a glossy, lacquer finish. Sunny brass hardware and light fixtures pop against the contrasting color palette and bring an elevated, glamorous appeal to the design.

Polished Purple

This ultra-modern, open concept kitchen pushes the envelope with its posh, purple cabinets. The lacquered storage sports a mirror-like finish that screams luxury and wraps both the kitchen and the living room in a regal, purple hue. The deep, moody cabinetry is framed by silver and accentuates the bright white furniture and greige accents used in the foreground of the space.

Modern Mint

Who says you need white cabinets to design an airy kitchen? Mint makes a soft statement in this modern kitchen. The lacquered upper and lower cabinets provide ample storage to ensure the space remains clutter free. Concrete floors, nickel hardware and a stainless-steel refrigerator maintain a cool color palette of this open concept design and add to the light, airy appeal of the space.

Bold Butler's Pantry

This sleek and shocking butler’s pantry sports high-gloss cobalt paint on nearly every available surface. The walls, cabinetry and trim are coated in the vibrant hue and appear extra-dramatic when juxtaposed against the classic, white walls featured throughout the remainder of the waterfront home.

Lacquered Libations

A lacquered-up liquor cabinet? We’ll drink to that. This old corner cabinet was given a new lease on life with a few coats of inky, high-gloss paint. The dramatic hue and flashy finish give the once-forgotten corner an inviting new look.

High Shine Glamour

Opulent details are abundant in this blue, pass-through bar. The exquisite, lacquered storage is enhanced with shiny silver hardware and a sleek, marble countertop. A mirrored backsplash polishes off the space and adds to the high-shine, high-glamour look.

Glossy Galley

Small space, huge style. Traditional black cabinets are coated in a high-gloss finish and pair with gray marble counters in this gorgeous, galley-style kitchen. Brass hardware sparkle on all the cabinet doors and a brass farmhouse sink provides a polished statement piece to the design.

Reflective + Refined

Wood can rock the lacquered look, too, you know. This striking space shows how it’s done with glossy, wood-paneled cabinets and soft gray marble countertops. The lacquered cabinets are minimalist in design and forgo hardware to allow the natural beauty of the grain shine in the space.

Sleek Sheen

Cool tones reign supreme in this spectacular, modern kitchen. White, floor-to-ceiling cabinets meet a liquid-like, lacquered cobalt backsplash and matching kitchen island. Electric green bar stools add to the energetic design, while stainless steel appliances provide professional utility to the space.
