The clients’ original kitchen was very dark and dated and they really wanted to brighten up the room and bring more light in to the space. They also didn’t like that when preparing food the cook felt a little left out. The new design, with the hob set in the peninsular, allows them face guests and is much more sociable. They opted for the Broadoak Shaker in a mix of graphite and alabaster for a modern-classic look.
Improving the storage was key and the designer recommended a suite of smart systems, such as pull-out larders, Le Mans corner unit and spice racks. This has really enhanced the ergonomics of the kitchen and ensures that groceries, crockery and pans are all easily accessible. The old ceiling was too high so as part of the refurbishment this was lowered to include new lighting to complement the interior.
