The client was planning to extend their home to include a large kitchen, dining, living room. After reviewing the plans, it was clear that an extension wasn’t necessary and the client could get the space they wanted by reconfiguring the current layout. This would save them thousands of pounds whilst still achieving the desired outcome. The key elements that were important to the customer were; dark units, dark industrial tops, light floor and a coffee machine.
There were several reviews and alterations to the design before the final scheme was reached but the end result ticked all the boxes and the client was elated. Steel grey units with a black finger grip provided a sleek and bold aesthetic, along with a concrete effect breakfast bar. The contemporary, industrial feel is completed with the Dekton Laos worktops which compliment the overall design. Light floor tiles balanced the dark units, lifting the colour palette and lightening the whole space.
The configuration of the appliances works well, with the 3 in-line, at eye level, including the coffee machine centrally aligned. The 2 in 1 hob and extractor was neat and compact, avoiding having a hood in the ceiling. A large kitchen sink along with Quooker flex tap is a very practical combination, the pull-out hose makes it far easier for cleaning around the sink of filling up awkward containers.
The island comprised of large drawers, perfect for pots, pans, crockery and utensils with extra units on the back of the island to maximise storage space . The tall units included a fridge, larder pull-out and a narrow unit, ideal for herbs and spices. Feature pendant lights bring a splash of colour and interest to the design whilst softening the dynamic angles.
