The clients' brief was for a classic-styled kitchen but designed for modern living. They wanted to lighten the ambience of the space whilst keeping the feel cosy and welcoming, to complement the rest of the home. As keen bakers the island is a great addition to the scheme and also doubles up as a place to relax and dine. The timeless lines of the Milbourne kitchen achieved exactly the look the clients had hoped for.
Key to the design process was ensuring the island was just the right size for the room, taking care there was ample space to move around it, but also that it was large enough to create the feature and function they desired. A flyover shelf over the hob and sink areas adds the fluidity they required and also allowed the sink and cooking area to be illuminated, enhancing the cosy atmosphere they wanted to create.
