The customers wanted to update their traditional white kitchen and explore the potential of knocking the wall through to the dining room to create a modern open-plan design. The designer recommended this would create a multi-functional living space that could be tailored to suit their lifestyle. On visiting the showroom the clients chose the handleless Remo range, in a modern dove grey finish to keep the ambience light with sleek modern lines.
For ergonomic reasons the client opted to lower the normal height of the island and oven, which the designer accommodated without compromising on visual appeal. A large amount of floor-to-ceiling larder storage was installed, providing an increased amount of storage, but also allowing for an integrated fridge/freezer and oven/combination oven to be installed. The induction hob is located in the island so is close to the ovens. The island also features a seating area at one end, perfect for informal dining when not entertaining friends and family.
