The clients wanted a modern yet timeless aesthetic, so the simply-styled Milbourne Alabaster door combined with other materials to add character achieved just that. The kitchen had to work on a number of levels, not only practically but also as a multi-functional living area. Improved preparation space and enhanced storage were key requirements and it was essential that the new design felt more spacious and also worked to bring light into the kitchen as there is minimal sunlight through the windows.
The designer advised on an alabaster door and light colourings to create the idea of space, but still keeping the sense of warmth in the room. Another way the darkness was tackled was to use a highly polished granite worksurface and LED lighting under wall units and around the windows, which effectively reflects the light.The kitchen answers the brief for a simplisticdesign, but by including curves on the ends of base units and on the island added another dimension as well as softening the look of the room.
