An unassuming and modest home from the pavement, this bright, spacious kitchen belongs to the combined space of two period cottages converted into a single dwelling some years ago. Sympathetic to the heritage of the property, the client wanted a contemporary look without bordering on über modern or urban styling. The new kitchen should be stylish and unique with plenty of ‘wow’ factor.
The handleless shaker certainly delivers on this. Sleek uncluttered lines of the handleless design combined with the traditional shaker style in a vintage blue grey has allowed the kitchen to sit well in the traditional property without jarring its surroundings. The addition of Dekton Trillium worktop brings a contemporary energy to the kitchen as well as providing a durable, practical work surface for this busy family kitchen.
With a vaulted ceiling and patio doors leading out to the garden, the kitchen is swathed in natural light. The interior design for the whole house uses a soft grey palette using Zoffany paint and the kitchen furniture was painted to reflect that palette. To add drama, the island is furnished in dark concrete flat handleless doors, again using Dekton Trillium for the worktop. Unusually, a higher than normal upstand was encorprated in place of tiling or splashback, which has been capped off with a full width display shelf fitted with concealed LED lighting.
In terms of appliances, there is a full height Liebherr Bio fresh fridge and an under counter freezer. To avoid spoiling the clean lines of the kitchen with an overhead extractor, the kitchen features a Bora induction hob with cooktop extractor, drawing off odours and grease particles from the cookware to prevent cooking smells from circulating and spreading into adjoining rooms. And as most of the food preparation takes place on the hob side of the island, a prep sink was fitted on the island for ease of use.
