Extending your home is a superb way to not only change the size and layout of the property but also make the kitchen a much more inviting family space.
This project involved a large rear extension to a substantial property to create a large kitchen diner with the benefit of a TV and audio area within the room.
We therefore had to come up with a design scenario that would suit all the requirements of the client.
We choose to use two different texture finishes to the furniture to add a further dimension to the design with the added use of the Nekton worktop surfaces to add an earthly feel to a large island feature, which also encompassed seating.
Built into the corners of the main wall area is a built in larder fitted with an internal pivot style internal opening door so as to maximise the floor space outside.
This larder was fully fitted out to offer various storage facilities for the client. The return wall area was designed to house the Miele ovens and compact microwave combination oven with a large warming drawer below.
A French-style double drawer double door stainless steel finish fridge freezer was also built in with an added small feature larder at each side.
The island encompassed an arrangement of deep drawers and storage available to use from both sides of the island with the undercounted sink and boiling water tap fitted on the return angle.
This added a further element to the design of the island and we further hid the structural beam within the island by cladding it with non-reflective grey mirror glass. This gave the beam a purpose rather than just being a fixed boxed structure in the room.
The remaining wall area encompasses an induction hob with large deep drawers below the wall. Further design elements included a feature cooker hood and the wall being clad in coloured feature glass from worktop height to the ceiling.
