From the initial design consultation, it was clear Steve and Elsa were looking for a truly unique kitchen space. They had earmarked a previously under-utilised garden room for renovation and were looking for a kitchen design to match their expectations.
Initial key words discussed ranged from understated and elegant, to calm and natural. The materials selected – concrete textures mixed with warm woods – perfectly reflected their theme.
2 key spaces were requested – a large dining space, and a second more informal space for casual dining and socialising. A small and cosy snug area was also placed on the wish list.
Our designers chose the striking Rempp’s Cliff laminate fronts in Ferro Black as the main finish, providing that textural, natural and unfussy look. This was complemented with Vintage Oak laminate details, with book-matched grain running continuously through the 4 main doors.
To give the kitchen a softer edge, a wooden handle rail detail was added, which seamlessly runs throughout the centrepiece kitchen island, sink run, and into the tall larder unit at the end of the run.
The contrasting Dekton Rem worktop with soft gold veining, beautifully echoes the natural light streaming from the roof above, with the tactile matt surface continuing the textural theme.
Finally, antique mirror was used to soften the area above the sink, and to reflect glimpses of the dining space atrium window.
Spekva wood was a significant design consideration, with the timeless solid grey oak personally selected by the client for the breakfast bar and 10 seat dining table.
Concealed design flourishes are also found throughout, none more so than the hidden utility room door, discreetly concealed within the tall units.
Finally, cutting-edge appliances from Siemens, Bora and Quooker were integrated throughout, providing Steve and Elsa with a fabulous kitchen space which will last a lifetime.
