The clients were looking for a monochromatic scheme, maximumising storage and work surface areas but also incorporating an area to socialise in.
The request for something contemporary led the clients to opt for a black and white kitchen, which is striking and works well in the space available. Soft touch matt black doors with contrasting matt Dekton Aura worktops gave it a very sleek look.
Lighting was crucial in this kitchen, with cleverly layered lighting in each zone of the kitchen. Over the peninsula pendant lighting is perfect for the breakfast bar, while recessed ceiling lights illuminate the cooking and food prep areas. The in-built banqueting seating has a softer central light, and the TV is subtly disguised in front of a dark grey mirror. Natural light floods through the big window and glazed door allowing it to be bright even on a dull winter’s day.
Given there is not plentiful space, bench seating was incorporated around the table, allowing the clients to fit all their family and grandchildren comfortably into the area. This has given them the option for socialising in the kitchen, while still including those who are cooking. Ample storage was achieved through the long run of wall units.
This is a simple but highly effective striking design. The linear, monochromatic look, with the odd splash of colour, gives a very clean, minimalistic style that works for cooking, eating and socialising
