The client, an interior designer, was looking for a modern, neutral scheme to suit her family life and new build home. With a keen eye for detail the client has stamped her own personality with strong colours in the blinds and walls. Lots of preparation space was vital and as an avid cook maximum oven capacity and a large hob were essentials, as were full height fridge/freezer. Storage was not overlooked with lots of wide drawers and handy pull-out larders.
In this kitchen the island was the focal point for family gatherings so had to be large enough and designed in such a way that the space worked socially as well as practically. A striking 60mm chunky worktop to the island created an interesting design feature.
