Kitchen style used


The Brief

The clients’ original kitchen, which was small, dark and outdated, was located on the opposite side of the house so they embarked on major renovation work and a new extension. The new kitchen is at the front of the house and has delivered everything the clients wanted from their new living space.  On the recommendation of the designer they opted for Porter White gloss doors to enhance the sense of light and space. This is teamed with coffee- toned worktops which immediately add warmth to the scheme. The clients are thrilled with their new open-plan kitchen which has lots of practical storage and has become the social hub of their home.

Designer's Tips

A large beam runs through the kitchen so the designer proposed making this a focal point of the design by featuring a floating light box built over it, directly about the peninsular.  Lighting is a key element of the design with decorative plinth lights adding ambience to the space and LED lighting used throughout to bring the whole design to life. Smart storage in the form of Le Mans corner solutions and pull-out shelves ensure every inch of space is maximised and cabinet access is a breeze.
