God, there is so much truth in that!

Looks like a Jersey city condo project

Do they use glass doors in Jersey?
post #412 of 4079
Id hate to live around all that glass. The sunlight would make you age like a field worker.

I like allwhite/glass/metal but it is indeed hard to pull off well without looking like a hick's perception of modernity. Not that I have anything against a well-done apt in warmer tones using interesting woods (like yrs).

the white apartment doesn't seem to be clicking for me, but I'm fan of the dark/glass/metal tones. Heck, my living room is a combination of dark grey/blue walls, chrome and glass shelving units, and then wood accents here and there (coffee table, desk, floor). The wall accents are all white. I can imagine some people really not liking it.

I don't mind modern at all but there's nothing interesting here: kitchen is depressing and everything looks lifeless (probably because it's likely some CAD rendering) - it looks exactly like renderings used to sell cookie-cutter Jersey City new condos - bonus points if there's a swimming pool in the basement and a mention of "sweeping" views of lower Manhattan. Not my cuppa

I'm assuming it's a rendering. People usually have lighting sources around the general area of the sink. And the designated eating area. And they have ovens.

I do, however, like the cupboards. Not the actual drawers themselves (though I don't dislike them), but rather the size and setup. The clean space under it all makes the room bigger.

I would like to see what you consider a nice kitchen.

I didn't say it wasn't "nice". Just not my taste

To answer your question though: give me some wood, some functional stainless steel appliances (not an ultra-thin convection range or ultra-slim hood) and enough cabinetry and I'm happy
post #420 of 4079
I understand. I was just interested in what you might find to be a great kitchen?
