The clients had a number of items on their wish list, close to the top was a feature central island, with seating for the five family members, closely followed by ample storage large fridge and freezer space and cooking capacity large enough for hosting family meals and entertaining, and not forgetting a large double sink and twin dishwashers! All this, and more, was delivered in the ergonomic design, with the Remo Cashmere cabinetry delivering the perfect blend of warm, natural tones and contemporary style, enhanced with the light, complementary mixed coloured quartz worktops. With the luxury of a new build the clients and designer were working with a blank canvas the result is stunning.
A tall appliance bank can be used to dramatic effect, as demonstrated in this design where a larder integrated fridge and freezer are incorporated at either end, along with eye- level height ovens, microwave and warming drawer in a sleek but balanced way. The island, with the feature ceiling extraction above (illuminated with zoned strip led lights), was carefully considered and including large drawers and pull-out storage within it, everything required is always to hand. The breakfast bar overhang to the rear and side allow for bar stool-height seating. Careful use was made of the concave curves and this detail has been enhanced by the curved island worktop, which is pleasing and softens the overall flow of the space.
