Previously a dark and dated kitchen our customers were embarking on a new extension for a fabulous new dining room and wanted a modern kitchen that would link the two spaces.
Having browsed our showroom and been inspired by two key pieces, they asked for a contemporary new kitchen and for us to incorporate the architectural Falmec Prestige Cooker Hood and Neolith sintered stone worktop in the river-washed finish.
Isn’t that feature blue wall stunning! We just love the fresh new feel to this space created through the use of high gloss, true handleless grey cabinetry combined with a pop of electric blue and open shelving. The open shelving, rather than a bank of wall units, really helps to frame the range and hood, but maintains a sense of space.
Previously this kitchen had a peninsula design but we designed a statement island with breakfast bar to make use of this central area. Dressed with bar stools, pendant lighting and completed with the textured Neolith worktop, it is a stunning central feature for this family kitchen.
The sink is another design feature all by itself, this is a Carron Phoenix stainless steel & black glass sink. We absolutely love it in this setting!
To offer some ambient lighting options and make a further feature of the blue wall, we added LED lighting to the shelves above the range. These are such a great option for adding low lighting to your kitchen for when you want to create a different atmosphere from the task lighting.
Being a Victorian house, the kitchen window is lovely and large but the sill was quite low compared to the height of the worktop. Not a problem. We designed a window box space behind the sink, creating the perfect nook for herbs & house plants.
