The clients wanted to improve the functionality of their new kitchen and also make it a more comfortable place to eat, entertain and relax. Removing a wall between the original kitchen and dining room created the large open-plan space, and bi-fold doors replaced a window to create access and a view out to the garden. A homely, earthy scheme was the brief so the new almond colour in the Shaker Broadoak fitted the bill, being a classic style with enduring appeal.
As there’s plenty of natural light in the room darker colours were introduced with the contrasting ‘Sonora’ Corian worktops and complementary-toned floor tiles adding depth to the design. Being a multi-functional space, all the tall housings are together so as not to overpower the room. The layout is very practical, a cook’s kitchen with dedicated prep areas and ample hidden storage solutions. The island’s curved edges are an elegant design touch offering a softer look when the room becomes the entertaining hub.
