Kitchen style used


The Brief

The brief was to create a large central island for preparation that would become the focal point of the room. The clients also wanted to incorporate some design features into the kitchen to break up the continuous runs of oak doors. Accessible internal storage was high on the wish-list and larders, pullouts and a Le Mans corner unit add to the ergonomic and practical layout of this design.

Designer's Tips

The island had to provide everything the clients required but not overpower the space.  They also wanted one side to be a display area, so curves were introduced to soften the corners and glazed base units and curved open shelving create a dresser-style façade to the island.  Integrated appliances created a streamlined look and plate and wine racks provide other display areas.
