Simon and Lynn had been working their way through renovations of their entire home – creating a serene and sophisticated feel from room to room – when finally they reached the kitchen.
They wanted a luxurious space for entertaining, but one that would also be comfortable and practical for everyday use. The contemporary Pronorm Y-line range was the perfect fit.
The client fell in love with a sepia oak wood finish for the furniture, which we complemented with agate-grey matt TU doors and Calypso Silestone suede-effect worktops.
Originally, the kitchen was split in two by a very high breakfast bar, making the space feel small and disjointed. We removed a stud partition, to open up the design and form one free-flowing room.
To further enhance the sense of space, we incorporated a BORA hob with downdraft ventilation into the kitchen island, negating the need for an intrusive overhead cooker hood. The Blanco Silgranit under-mounted sink – sporting a boiling water Quooker tap – continues the streamlined look and blends seamlessly into the worktops.
As a finishing design flourish, the island worktop has been mitred on both ends to create a sleek, wrap-around waterfall effect.
Lastly, the kitchen offers plenty of practical storage – including a full-height larder fridge/freezer and a compact Caple wine fridge nestled beneath the island – as well as numerous spaces for decorative storage, too.
The black Pronorm rail detail in the niche adds shelf space for displaying the all-important coffee machine and other kitchen knick-knacks – allowing Simon and Lynn to put their own personal stamp on the room.
