Palazzo’s design experts love working in collaboration with our customers. In our initial consultation, Aga and Paul came to us with a very specific brief, having already researched a vast range of styles and options. As a priority, their substantial kitchen space had to be sociable and functional, but also sleek and modern. Moreover, the look and feel needed to dovetail elegantly with their contemporary living space. The result is a beautiful, dramatic design, awash with monochrome colour contrasts, clean lines and superior materials – a kitchen which showcases the Pronorm Y-Line range at its very best.
As its heart, Aga and Paul’s space is an elegant, ergonomic kitchen and dining area, with doors leading out to the garden for Summer entertaining and a large dining space for those cooler Scottish months. Our designers looked to create a multi-purpose worktop which could also be used as a large breakfasting area. The white handleless units on the island contrast beautifully with the black handlerail and plinth, whilst emphasising the thin yet robust Corian worktops. The breakfasting area was finished off with angled detail to the floor, complementing the minimalistic design seamlessly.
The island centrepiece also incorporates a ventilated Siemens hob, providing cutting-edge, discreet ventilation and clear sightline. Siemens Studioline appliances with stunning black steel detail complement the monochromatic palette and provide a full range of cooking options, with both steam oven and combination microwave installed. Finishing off the sink run with a flourish, a Quooker boiling water tap was fitted, removing any need for a kettle and significantly reducing kitchen clutter.
Well-considered bespoke features work in harmony with the overall kitchen design. We added glazed top-boxes which incorporated ambient lighting and utilised the full height of the space. This feature was also echoed in the wall-hung dresser cabinet units in the dining area.
Lighting a large monochromatic space such as this requires care, detail and consideration. Handle rail, plinth and units were all installed on individual circuits, allowing full control and providing subtlety to evening lighting when required.
From conception to completion, Aga and Paul’s kitchen space was a true joy to work with. The resulting kitchen space exudes a timeless modernity, with cutting-edge functionality discreetly baked in for good measure.
