This kitchen showroom is not that big but quite modern, neat and sleek even with a luxury walk-in closet and some cool technologies. Ladies, who doesn’t love a stylish, open and airy walk-in closet with a lot of bells and whistles?!!! And last but not the least, we had professional chefs working in the kitchen and making some yummy gourmet foods. Here are some of our wonderful moments from this beautiful night!

- Modern multi-color glass tiles add a touch of playfulness and bring life to this kitchen.
- The metal-framed glass doors are another cool element in the space.
- Black leather granite countertop is a practical choice yet looks very classic.
- Under and over-cabinet lighting for task and mood.
- The curved island makes access to the kitchen much easier and serves as a large prep station and bar.
The best way to chill out on Sunday is to prepare family brunch in a beautiful kitchen with a lot of sunshines.
