To change the existing layout to make space for a kitchen island that could accommodate seating and to create more storage.
For the kitchen style, the customers had already fallen in love with the patterned tiles and wanted a design that would work around the statement tile splashback. It’s always fun to kick off the design process when a customer has fallen in love with a colour or element that has inspired their ideas for a new kitchen.
Lastly, it was important the kitchen was accessible for wheelchair use.
The original kitchen footprint had a peninsula between the back door and the window. This was removed to accommodate the island with bar stools and makes the whole space feel more open plan. The island worktop is in walnut, a lovely warm contrast to the matte graphite grey kitchen and dark quartz (Konigstone Dolomite) worktops. Walnut has such a rich colour and tactile qualities, we love it used in this way.
The handleless kitchen in the matte graphite grey has brushed copper handle rails, adding another warm tone to contrast with the dark grey furniture. The grey colour scheme and copper rails complement the bright patterned tiles and enable those colours to really pop.
When the peninsula was removed, it left the consumer unit on show so we built a bespoke cupboard to conceal it neatly out of sight.
Kitchens Bespoke managed the whole project, delivering the plumbing, electrics, decorating and Karndean flooring.
