European kitchen design elements often include a mix of old and new design details. You will sometimes see wood combined with stainless steel, marble, or glass. Some clients prefer minimalist and modern while others like ornate and old world. This kitchen has an interesting mix of European kitchen design elements. It combines two door styles in one cabinet — full overlay drawer heads with inset doors. The drawer heads have a unique profile shaped with a slight concave arc, yet the cabinet doors underneath are inset. Notice the particularly beautiful hardware on the drawer heads.
The kitchen’s open shelf units have a track system that is recessed into the wood backsplash. The shelves are adjustable by moving the wood block up and down along the metal track. Above the open shelving is a ladder rail and an upper cabinet section with large glass doors that slide right and left giving the kitchen an elegant, old world feel.
