My client requested a bright open plan space and wanted to make their new kitchen a bit more of a social space, as their last kitchen was a traditional style built into a single room.
The space we had to work with was very unusual as it had so many openings and doorways to contend with. It is also used as a link to get to other rooms. Making sure they had enough storage and getting the flow right was challenging.
Box units in using plastered studwork to give it that streamlined built in look. Also, making the island darker than the rest of the cabinets so the tall built in cabinets almost become invisible realy showing the island as a feature.
