This kitchen was 17 years old and the client felt that the needs of the family had changed and they now wanted a more open feel to the kitchen. They wanted to remove the range cooker and move the oven to eye level, they wanted the breakfast bar removed without compromising work surface area or storage space too much.
A combination of two door types were used, Odyssey Cream Gloss was used on the cupboard doors and Horizon Light Oak was used on the drawers. The sink was moved over to the right more to give extra work surface around the hob area, and under mount sinks were used with the drainer groves placed on the right freeing up worktop space to the left of the sinks. Bushboard 20mm thick M-Stone Ivory Quartz solid surface was used for the worktop allowing for the use of under mount sinks and drainer grooves, and the curved worktop section.
NEFF appliances were used throughout Combination Microwave at the top, Variosteam single oven, then a Warming drawer at the bottom and an Induction Hob with Angled Hood and Black Glass splashback.
The Client always felt the that even with such a big window you often blocked the light from ceiling lights as you worked around the kitchen. So we introduced LED ceiling down-lights strategically placed to enhance the lighting and LED under counter strip lighting to give maximum coverage. Then as a feature LED spot lights were used in the plinth and these were put on a separate light switch with the under counter LEDs, so the client could just have the under counter and plinth lights on, or just the ceiling lights or all the lights on to maximise the effect.
Luxury Camaro Romano Stone vinyl tiles including Coffee grout strips were used on the floor and Prismatic’s Gloss Storm Grey tiles with Grey grout to finish the look. All creating a much more spacious and open to feel to the kitchen.
