Handleless High Gloss Lacquer Curved Kitchen with Quartz – Hurstpierpoint

The brief

Set within a contemporary new build property this curved kitchen was to form the focal point within a large kitchen dining area. Our clients wanted a designer kitchen that would feature not only curves but also no handles. It had to deliver a high level of functionality whist never compromising on style.

The design

Curves were a must and set the tone of the whole design. Luckily for us the space lent itself to a beautiful curved peninsula running parallel to the tall unit bank on the back wall. The challenge with curves is how to integrate them into a space that is primarily made up of straight lines. To achieve the balance here we kept the curves to the peninsula with just one more on the bar unit. Less can sometimes be more and this is a good example of not over doing an idea. The drop ceiling detail running around the perimeter is another detail we added to homogenise the space, adding lighting and interest whilst also housing the tall units.

How it worked out

The pictures, as always, only tell half the story. The overall feel of the space is every bit as glamorous as it looks but what is perhaps a little harder to appreciate is just how functional this kitchen is. Full height fridge, full height freezer, oven, steam oven, warming drawer, induction hob and not one but two dishwashers make it a kitchen that can handle everything life can throw at it. The seductive curves are perfectly complimented by the 20mm quartz worktops and the Natural Oak wall panelling.

These types of kitchen are always a challenge, both on the design side but just as crucially on the installation side too. It’s a credit to our fitting team the way they once again turned our customers dream into a fully functioning reality. This kitchen is a huge triumph and occupies the key space in the home of a local celebrity. Pretty cool huh!

The Brief

To design and install a modern family kitchen, maintaining space for a table and keeping an open feel. Via a set of bi-fold doors the kitchen leads out on to a decked area so maintaining a sense of “flow” was very important. The client wanted a mix of modern furniture and natural materials for the worktops and spashback. The kitchen also needed to house a built in washing machine and make use of an existing larder cupboard.

The Design

The decision to keep the table and chairs meant the space available for the kitchen furniture and appliances was fairly limited. With this in mind the design needed considerable thought to accommodate all our clients’ wishes. The sink sits between a built-in washer/dryer and a built-in dishwasher. The existing larder cupboard was adapted with the door and mouldings re-clad in matching front material whilst the inside was reconfigured to accommodate the vacuum, ironing board and recycling bins. The feature part of the kitchen is the curved oven/hob run of units, topped with Iroko worktops.

How it worked out

Considering its size this kitchen works very well to provide a highly usable space both for cooking and socialising. The use of curves creates a simple yet striking look whilst the elegant mix of real wood and high gloss lacquer give the kitchen a truly luxurious feel.  The warmth of the wood is further enhanced by the travertine tiling, used to great effect to add another layer of texture and interest.
