Kitchen style used


The Brief

This kitchen is the hub of a very busy family home and so had to deliver on many levels.  As well as being functional from a food preparation perspective the clients were keen to make their new kitchen an ultimately sociable space.  They opted for the light glossy tones of Porter Beige and contrasted this with iron ore Silestone worktops.  As keen cooks, the range cooker takes pride of place in the centre of the kitchen.

Designer's Tips

What this kitchen may lack in size it more than compensates with its essentially ergonomic layout.  When space is at a premium a breakfast bar is the answer to create the social element of the kitchen.  Although only a small area, the clients are delighted with this handy place to sit where the children can eat and where they can sit down to have a coffee when the children are playing out in the garden.
