Form and Function; every material, every hinge, every texture thoughtfully planned

Every decision our kitchen designers make needs to serve both the functional and aesthetic needs of the individual client, with every material, every hinge, every texture thoughtfully planned. Beautifully made cabinetry is just the start, sometimes it is the details and finish that makes a kitchen truly individual.

The space was designed around the large and unique island. With high and low level seating, this island was made to be the central hub of the family home with the ability to serve the needs of a busy family for anything from an evening socialising with friends to last minute homework finished at breakfast. The bench seating also provides some much-needed additional storage, something all busy families can never have enough of.

This kitchen also had to do justice to the contemporary interiors of the rest of the property and the distinctive design focused vision of the client. The handle less design with shark nose edge profile of cabinetry was chosen to give ease of use whilst being sympathetic to this modern family space. Steel trims where chosen to display the handle less detailing, framing and distinctly marking out the Quartz worktop, offering up another texture and material that is both tactile and adds a touch of industrial edge.

Professionally sprayed in dark lead grey, in a smooth satin finish. Contemporary yet timeless, grey is a great colour for cabinetry, working brilliantly against the bright pops of green and yellow in the décor. A room with a double aspect view, on a bright day the space floods with natural light and a slight blue tone can be seen dramatically offset against the stainless steel trims. Parquet style herringbone Karndean floor warms the entire space adding a touch of the traditional but with contemporary functionality. Karndean is engineered to be very low maintenance and hard wearing so perfect for a busy kitchen.

With so many options regarding finish it can be overwhelming to narrow it down, to see past trends and know what will truly make a long lasting impression in your home. With a thoughtful approach we hand pick the very best options to perfectly fit with your individual space and lifestyle.
