The clients extended their home to create a larger and airy pen-plan kitchen living space. With three young children the design had to be family-friendly and incorporate plenty of storage and surfacing space. They opted for the charcoal-painted Broadoak range and teamed this with oak cabinetry to add warmth to the scheme. The two-tone combination is modern yet has classic and timeless undertones. The breakfast bar area is the perfect place for the children, not only to have an informal meal but also for reading and homework.
The peninsular creates a subtle division between the kitchen and living space but keeps the space very sociable and open. The open shelving unit adds visual interest to the run of cabinets and actually cleverly used a space where a nib was situated to disguised its location too. The bespoke butler’s pantry keeps all the food and ingredients in order. The designer ensured the cooking and preparation space increased and the installation of a hot tap has created a specified drinks area without crowding the work surfaces.
