The clients had strong ideas about what they wanted from their new kitchen, from the functional benefits through to design touches such as the feature-glazed letterbox doors above the ovens. A breakfast bar was a must, to make the kitchen a more sociable space for friends and family. The Milbourne Shaker cabinetry, in a warm almond finish, grounds the scheme, surfaced in a modern Corian lava rock worktop.
The island is multipurpose, acting as a prep zone as well as a social hub, with the two distinctive areas defined by the use of two worktop materials. The solid surface imbues a satin sleek feel to the clean-lined and elegant design whilst the timber adds warmth to the seating area. Bespoke open corner shelving to display books adds interest to the scheme and reflects the clients ethos of combining practicality with good looks.
