Faced with a long and narrow room, the challenge was to make the space feel more comfortable and practical. Keeping the wall units to a minimum opened up the space and the curved breakfast bar softened the lines and gave the room a sociable feel. The hob is on an angle which avoids the kitchen feeling like a corridor with the tall units on one wall housing the ovens and main appliances.
Clever and careful use of colours and materials have also enhanced the proportions of this kitchen. Mixing the alabaster with the black granite and the natural oak pelmets, plinths, cornice and panelling breaks up the runs of cabinetry and adds a more natural feel to the design.
