The clients, a family with two teenage children, had just moved home and the existing kitchen was too small for their needs. They desperately wanted a large open-plan living space that would extend through to the airy conservatory at the back of the house. The brief, for the new kitchens, was a design that would create a classic timeless feel, would tie in with their dining furniture and would be somewhere the family would enjoy for years to come. The Milton Alabaster range was chosen for its elegant and refined appeal providing a light neutral backdrop for the clients to inject personality through the statement pendant lighting and vivid wall colour.
To unify the kitchen and living area the designer suggested a breakfast bar, this created an informal seating area and the gentle curves on the cabinetry, worktop and stools make a subtle link to the archway leading to the conservatory. Stone worktops were chosen for the working area of the kitchen, with walnut for the breakfast bar to add warmth to the scheme.
