The clients’ previous kitchen, although in an extension, was a tight u-shape and was split from the main living areas of the house by the dining room. By removing the old outside wall, an open-plan kitchen diner was created with a stronger social focus. The brief was to have a bright and airy ambience in the room so the glossy Remo Alabaster cabinetry, teamed with the complementary cream quartz worksurfaces, delivers a light-enhancing space. The clean lines of the Remo handleless range, coupled with the integrated appliances, ensures a sleek aesthetic to the interior. Even the kettle was done away with in favour of a boiling hot water tap so the look was crisp and uncluttered.
The layout had to work on a practical level and the clients love the central island, which not only gives the room a focus but is also very functional being a useful prep area, with ample storage as well as housing the induction hob with a neatly integrated ceiling extractor overhead.
