The clients came into our showroom looking for a new kitchen. They were trying to visualise how the space could work and how they could change their old kitchen and make it not only look better but work better too. Between us, we came up with lots of ideas and changes to help the layout flow better and allow for more storage and space.
A Graphite and Taupe Kitchen Design
The kitchen needed to deliver a high level of functionality including an American fridge freezer, range cooker, Siemens oven, Quooker tap, wine cooler, dishwasher and seating on the island for four. They wanted more storage and to add a shelving unit with led lighting to brighten up the room. The clients wanted to use two different colours for the cabinetry and quartz worktops. They chose graphite and taupe kitchen cabinets with Calacatta quartz.
The main part of the kitchen was a relatively simple layout with an L-shape kitchen around the outside and an island in the middle. The cabinetry needed to house the original American fridge freezer so we built the cabinetry around this adding in plenty of storage.
To make this kitchen work as well as it does we added a door to the left of the sink and removed the original fridge bank to open up the space. The original island was fairly small so they wanted to make it larger and add seating for four, along with a wine cooler and cupboards.
How it worked out
The kitchen works very well practically as well as socially; it makes the space a highly useable area for cooking, socialising and spending time as a family. This kitchen was a great success not only does this room look great the functionality and layout of this kitchen work brilliantly. Our client loves the way the kitchen looks and just as importantly the way it works.
The overall effect is a beautiful kitchen with a generous amount of storage and a high degree of functionality.
