For this kitchen our customers wanted a much lighter and more contemporary style than their existing kitchen. The previous kitchen was predominantly in wood, so a high gloss, handleless kitchen was the perfect remedy to create a modern, light bright space.
At the time, the rest of the house was also in the process of being modernised into a more contemporary style. It was important that the new kitchen reflected this modernisation happening across the home and fitted into the updated styling.
Lastly, they wanted to be able to eat in the kitchen, without over cluttering the space.
We started by creating two designs; one with a breakfast bar and one which retained the table and chairs. We felt the breakfast bar made better use of the space when we looked at how the family used the kitchen. The house has a seperate dining room which is what the family use for main or formal meals together. The customer agreed and loves the informal eating and gathering space the breakfast bar now provides.
For the colour scheme and finish, the low units are high gloss in cashmere, whilst the high units are in a stylish oak effect laminate. This contrast adds a sense of texture and warmth, without compromising the sleek contemporary style.
The worktop is in one of our favourite materials, Corian. This is their natural concrete finish and looks absolutely seamless across the worktop space. This flawless look really complements the modern feel of this kitchen perfectly. Corian is a really wonderful material. It is non-porous, making it easy to keep clean and comes in a great array of colours.
The appliances in this kitchen are all Neff, apart from the Quooker Flex combination tap and Falmec hood.
Adding a pop of colour to this kitchen is the glass splashback in that gorgeous aubergine colour. The rich colour is a great contrast to the rest of the kitchen, whilst the glass really bounces light around the space.
This was a simple brief to work to but it was important to maximise the light and the space. To help achieve this, we moved the boiler out of the kitchen to free up more usable space.
In addition the actual installation of the new kitchen, we also did all the overboarding and decorating for the kitchen.
