The clients wanted a contemporary kitchen that would work well with the existing exposed brickwork. The kitchen they had before had an island and they wanted to do something a little different to make the space more open whilst also adding more storage.
They were open to ideas for the kitchen and liked the idea of keeping things simple, whilst using beautiful materials to enhance the light and airy feel of the space.
The layout was established quite early on in the process. The exposed brickwork is beautiful so choosing different colours that worked with this was important. The white contrast against the brick is stunning.
The ceiling in the kitchen is really high so the plan was to house the fridge freezer, double siemens ovens and a larder in the tall units. We then added extra wall units above the tall units to make the bank 2.6 metres high which added lots more storage. Corners can sometimes be a little dark with tall units so having open shelves and led lighting really works in this corner, making it feel brighter and more spacious.
We decided a peninsular, against the wall, would work better than a centre island, as it gives them more space to walk around in the kitchen. It was also a great way of incorporating seating for four.
The cabinetry is satin white and graphite handle-less with Caesarstone organic white quartz worktops. Mixing colours and textures in kitchens really give a wow factor to the room.
How it worked out
The clients were super happy with their kitchen. The kitchen is beautifully designed and installed and is made with high end timeless materials. It was great to be involved designing and installing this kitchen and working with lovely clients fully involved in the process.
