The kitchen dining room already existed but the client wanted the living space opening up to create a better flow. Kitchen materials where to be incorporated between the rooms to give consistency throughout, artificial lighting was a key point due to the garden facing north east.
White had to be incorporated into the kitchen with the client being a dentist and loving the cleanliness of it. Some form of coffee station/pantry was requested with breakfast bar seating for min of 4 people. The kitchen needed to be the focal point of the room without compromising on space and function.
A selection of appliances where key and had to include a tall wine fridge, tall fridge, tall freezer, oven, combi and hot tap. The dishwasher was to be situated in the adjoining utility room as this was where the main sink was to be located.
We did this by removing the internal wall and creating a false chimney breast to incorporate the steel and also creating 2 niche openings for shelving to be located in which we used the Dark Sherwood cabinetry which helped the colour flow into the living space from the kitchen. With the clients wanting a lot of tall appliances we created a bank of larders which also helped us create the bespoke pocket door unit which ended up being the main talking point of the kitchen. By doing this we where able to add a bulkhead around the outside of the kitchen which worked for both a frame for the kitchen and also a secondary option for mood lighting.
To be able to then create the remainder of the kitchen we needed to use part of the nib going into the dining room thus allowing us to be able to run units and the breakfast along the join in-line with the existing steel. As a nice feature we again used the dark Sherwood for the breakfast bar but also continued this up and around the steel frame to create the picture effect but to also link the kitchen into the dining room. By creating the u-shaped peninsular we where able to form the breakfast bar, have a dedicated prep sink area and then put in a bora hob knowing the clients would get no smells circulating around the now open plan area.
The back of the peninsular facing the dining room had usable half depth units with the doors to floor to keep the look minimal and also keep them inline with the end panel. Under cabinet wall lighting matched the pin lights around the bulkhead and by adding the mirror splashback this gave the room an extended feel. The main kitchen was designed in super white gloss lacquer with iconic white silestone worktops giving a stunning end result.
