Our clients were after a modern handleless style for their spacious contemporary kitchen, that would be both stylish and practical. The kitchen needed to provide plenty of storage, enable the family to entertain on a large scale and be wheelchair accessible.
Additionally, the new kitchen needed to have a high gloss finish, and easily accommodate up to four people cooking and working in there. With three ovens, full size fridge, separate full size freezer and a full size wine fridge to be incorporated, this is a home that knows how to throw a party!
To contrast the white gloss units, we used German brand, Rotpunkt for the kitchen island. The distinctive and textured grey softens the overall crisp white finish of the kitchen and adds some focal interest. The Corian worktop is the finishing touch to this modern and charismatic home. It continues the flawless look and feel, but with unbeatable practicality. We love using Corian, it looks great, feels great and is so robust, it is ideal for a busy kitchen!
Rather uniquely, this home actually runs on solar power, generated by panels on the roof so energy efficiency was important. This led to us installing a gas Barazza hob which looks fabulous and a statement in itself, but crucially, is more energy efficient than induction hobs.
All in the detail
Using two types of cabinetry could have made this spacious contemporary kitchen feel fragmented. To ensure the design felt cohesive, we designed bespoke surrounds for the gloss wall units in the textured grey, to marry the two elements together.
Often on our kitchen projects, the kitchen is actually part of other renovation work taking place at the property and we regularly work with the other trades on site. Meeting the main builder on the project before our work begun was important, to establish what both sides needed to be aware of as the renovation progressed. By taking the time to do this at the start, we can ensure the whole installation runs smoothly and everyone’s needs are taken into account. The key element for us with the building work was the ceiling, which would feature our integrated cooker hood. Our design required this hood to be installed into the ceiling cavity to create a completely seamless ceiling surface. We discussed this with the builder, in advance which ensured the ceiling was set up correctly for our installation.
