The clients planned an extension to the back of the house to accommodate a new open-plan kitchen/dining space as well as a downstairs shower room. The main objective was to enlarge the kitchen space ensuring the room was light and airy. This was particularly important as their original kitchen was very small and very dark. The Milbourne Stone cabinetry creates a relaxed feel and in the light neutral stone finish and teamed with the Silestone white storm polished quartz is fresh and appealing. The velux roof lights and large bi-fold doors ensure the kitchen is flooded with natural light. The clients wanted a timeless kitchen for the extension which they could add a contemporary twist too.
The light teal-coloured glass splash-back was added to help reflect the light around the extension and inject a splash of colour and personality. Storage solutions were essential to the kitchen as, being a key room for living, they wanted to keep worksurfaces clear and free from any clutter. The island is very much a social focal point of the design so the occasional seating is proving very popular.
