The original kitchen was outdated and the clients wanted to create a more timeless look, whilst achieving a practical and ergonomic layout. They opted for the simple lines of the Broadoak design, with charcoal cabinetry for the base units and a lighter greyfor the wall cabinets and bank of units, creating an elegant contrast. Improving the access to storage was key to the brief. The clients are thrilled with the Le Mans corner solution and the tall larder which have vastly improved both the access and storage capacity.
Something that niggled the clients with the old design was negotiating the narrow entrance to the dining room as with the square-edged worktops it often meant catching themselves on a sharp corner. The designer recommended radius corner posts, which softened the corners and improved the ergonomics of the kitchen. Using a mix of above & below cabinet lighting creates a warm ambience in the kitchen throughout the day, making it a more pleasurable space to work in.
