The clients, a young couple, had firm ideas for their contemporary, open-plan kitchen and living space. Having extended across the back of their house they wanted to create a space that was functional, comfortable and high on visual appeal. A high-gloss handleless design was top of their wish list, so the Tomba range was the perfect choice, with the bold contrast between the graphite and white delivering the impact and drama the clients were looking for. A large multi-functional island was crucial to the design, to accommodate the hob and downdraft extractor as well as being the social hub to spend time with friends and family - not forgetting the crucial wine cooler!
This kitchen is not short on personality and this was something that the clients were keen to inject. The lime neon glass splashback adds a zingy fun element to the design, with the floating wall-hung media centre complementing the space and adding to the social feel of the room. The oak dining table, and side area, add a sense of warmth ensuring the interior is inviting at all times of the day. In an open-plan space, that's always on view, it's important to keep the aesthetic sleek and clean so the kitchen includes numerous hidden storage solutions, such as larders, corner systems and bi-fold wall units.
