To create a stylish new kitchen to utilise the current space better, and make it a much more flexible space for entertaining. The customer wanted something light, timeless and low maintenance to keep clean. In addition, our new classic kitchen design had to complement the existing floor which was to remain.
The old kitchen had a large peninsula which divided the space awkwardly and overall, the design looked dated. A dark granite work surface in particular was a feature the customer wished to change.
Our bespoke classic kitchen design
We designed a classic shaker kitchen in porcelain with a contrasting stone coloured kitchen island. This colour scheme really brightened the whole space but the darker tone on the island created a stylish centerpiece for the whole room. In addition to looking great, the kitchen island allowed for a much more flexible space than the peninsula had by not dividing the space in half. This new layout enables the family to access the whole kitchen more easily and is a natural focal point for guests to congregate around.
For the tiling, we opted for a darker shade metro tile which doesn’t compromise the overall light and fresh feel of the kitchen, but just adds a great contrast to the lighter cabinets, work surface and floor.
All in the detail
The kitchen actually opens out into the dining area so to integrate the two spaces better, we matched the carcass and new work surface to the oak dining room table. The 50ml square edge laminate is used on the work surface, island, breakfast bar and window sill, really creating a cohesive feel to the whole kitchen and dining space.
The final detail which really pulls the whole space together is the stylish three-pronged pendant lamp. It is a real design statement which complements the colour scheme and kitchen style perfectly.
