Mark and Helen wanted a dark blue kitchen but a light space – we looked at options to have two colours for the cabinetry but eventually achieved the right aesthetic by keeping all the cabinetry dark and the floors and walls light – also suggesting glass doors between rooms off the kitchen and adding windows to ensure the space was bright and light.
A sizeable peninsula with plenty of built in storage is the new home of the cooking area – with a BORA downdraft induction hob that eliminates the need for any overhead extraction, leaving an uninterrupted view throughout the space.
A pantry style double larder is perfect to store all non perishables, and cabinetry throughout the kitchen space ensures everything has a place – the additional countertop area designed next to the refrigerator means items can be placed there, leaving a beautiful and clutter free space on the peninsula. All the usual appliances were incorporated, including AEG ovens and a boiling water Quooker Classic tap, in patinated brass to complement the door furniture and sockets.
The whole kitchen and dining space, which was essentially three relatively dark rooms, is now a bright, open and stylish space, with everything needed and wanted.
