This was a new-build so the clients had the luxury of a blank canvas on which to stamp their own tastes. They had decided on a light-coloured painted kitchen to be very soft on the eye but still make an impact. They were very sure of what they wanted, and had even created their own moodboard. As a hard-worked kitchen a good mix of storage solutions were included and a medium sized island offers useful worktop space, a sink for food prep as well as handy seating.
The clients wanted to create a bespoke-feel to their design to avoid the fully-fitted look so the designer proposed lowering the window sill to ground level to break up the lines. They didn’t like tall gables so rounded columns and angled units were used to soften them. Although initially keen on a range cooker, the client, who suffers with back pain, took the designer’s advice to have eye-level cooking whilst retaining the hob and overmantle to keep the classic look.
