• KITCHEN CABINETS: Cesar Maxima 2.2 modern kitchen line
  • CABINET FINISHES: Heat treated oak wood and titanium gray lacquer kitchen finishes

This modern Italian custom kitchen by Cesar was designed by our Modiani kitchen designer Bernard Kim. It is located in Alpine, New Jersey and comes in a heat-treated oak wood finish for the kitchen island, wall and tall cabinets, as well as a gray titanium lacquer finish for the base and wall cabinets. The kitchen model used is our popular Maxima 2.2 kitchen model, which allows for maximum flexibility in terms of the kitchen finish and customization options.

Back To Modern Kitchen Portfolio

Our client approached us because they had recently purchased a new, modern home in the high-end residential neighborhood of Alpine, NJ. While there was a kitchen there already, they decided to still look for a new modern kitchen design that was more high-end as well as functional. They were additionally looking for a different kitchen layout with trendier materials and kitchen cabinet finishes, and thought that Modiani’s Cesar Maxima 2.2 kitchen line was very suitable for their aspirational kitchen to become reality.

The client was looking for an impactful kitchen in strong, dark kitchen cabinet colors, which would put an emphasis and nice accent on the bright kitchen backsplash and countertops. Our kitchen designer Bernard highly enjoyed working on this exciting kitchen project, and suggested a brand new kitchen layout including a comprehensive lighting plan. This plan included direct as well as indirect lighting effects in order to make the kitchen look even more miraculous, depending on the time of the day.

This beautiful Italian Cesar kitchen design includes a functional kitchen island with several seating opportunities on both sides of the island. It also has a friendly and welcoming layout, making it a lot easier to cook and serve guests at the same time. The kitchen countertop of the seating area has the same heat-treated oak finish as the cabinets themselves, and extends into a practical rugged concrete quartz countertop by Caesarstone. To create a nice subtle contrast and a unique design, a Caesarstone white Attica countertop finish was used for the rest of the kitchen countertops and backsplashes.

This modern kitchen project also includes many other valuable custom features, such as a plug mold (wire strip), several pop-up outlets as well as hidden compartments next to the cooktop that can be easily accessed. There are windows on both sides of the kitchen, which allow for a lot of sunlight during the day as well as beautiful views of the neighborhood in Alpine, NJ for both, the chef and the guests in the kitchen. We were pleased to hear that our client is extremely happy with their new, custom kitchen and that our Modiani design team managed to make their kitchen dream come true.
