Modern Kitchen Cabinets


  • KITCHEN CABINETS: Cesar Maxima 2.2 kitchen model
  • CABINET FINISH: Heat treated oak wood kitchen finish
  • ARCHITECT:Mark Virgona

This Weehawken, NJ high-end Italian kitchen is situated in a large, four-story townhouse in a wealthy neighborhood of New Jersey. Although the residence itself is very large, the kitchen space is fairly narrow, so a challenge existed in creating a space that felt large but that worked within that narrowness allocated by the architect’s floor plan. To address this challenge, a fairly linear design was created using the back wall and the long kitchen island. It turned out that this collaboration between our head of design at Modiani Kitchens, Kobi Aharon and the NJ Architect Mark Virgona from Virgona + Virgona Architects was a true success.

The kitchen model used for this residential kitchen project is our Cesar Italian Maxima 2.2 kitchen model. It comes in a very trendy, high-end heat treated oak wood cabinet finish, which is oak wood that is treated with heat, and hence turns dark and becomes more durable. This cabinet finish is being combined with white lacquer cabinetry that stands out even more through the oak wood framing.

Our Cesar taller than average wall kitchen cabinets were installed on the back wall. They measure 9.5 feet and extend from the floor to the ceiling, hence helping to promote a feeling of largeness in the space. These tall kitchen cabinets act as a framing element to the rest of the back wall, which houses functional elements such as the kitchen cooktop, speed ovens, and fully integrated refrigerator.

To the left of the kitchen’s wall unit is a coffee and tea station with retractable kitchen doors, which slide into the wall unit like a pocket to save space and promote mobility when the station is open. The refrigerator has custom glass panels. The cooking area is eight feet wide and has a stainless steel kitchen countertop and backsplash. To the right of the unit is a pantry with internal drawers.

Paired with the functional back wall is the kitchen island, which has a four-inch thick kitchen countertop and a waterfall stone element that cascades to the floor. The client of this modern Weehawken, NJ home is a young family that entertains a lot, so being able to sit six at the island was a priority. The modern Italian kitchen island is sixteen feet long and four and a half feet deep, which provides plenty of space for dining, work, and entertaining.
