The Brief

This client grew tired of the original kitchen that had been installed when this quaint property was built in the village of Ashington. They required a refresh to bring their kitchen into the present-day with the addition of some new appliances.

To help modernise the entire space new flooring was also required, and the kitchen design was to be replicated into a utility room located just off the kitchen.

Design Elements

From early project conversations it was clear the client liked a monochrome theme, which has been deployed across the kitchen and utility. The layout is not dissimilar to their previous kitchen, with the new design utilising a peninsula island to divide the space between the kitchen and dining area.

This new design makes use of an ultramodern gloss door finish which is an option from our German manufacturer Nobilia. The furniture has also been chosen in handleless form and matt black handleless rails have been used in places to contribute to the monochrome theme.

Designer Aron recommended a softer flooring choice to team well with the monochrome theme, and this light oak option certainly does that. The chosen flooring is a Karndean finish named Grey Scandi Pine and has been installed by our team throughout the kitchen, dining area, and utility room.

Lighting was a key project consideration to keep the kitchen looking vibrant and modern. LED strip lighting has been installed into the handleless voids and undercabinet lighting has been fitted beneath wall units.

In places these chosen lighting options glisten upon the white solid surface work surface chosen by the client. This finish is from manufacturer Silestone and is a soft white option named White Storm.

Special Inclusions

As part of the project the client sought an improvement to some of their previous appliances, as well as keeping some of them which were in good working order.

A Neff induction hob has been included within the design as well as an overhead extractor hood which is concealed behind furniture. This hob is equipped with two regular induction cooking spaces, as well as a flexInduction zone which can heat multiple pans placed within this zone. Next to the sink area a Neff dishwasher has also been installed.

Around the kitchen a number of clever storage solutions enhance the use of space. Corner units equipped with pull-out storage trays, and pan drawers with quick-release cutlery drawers are just some of the great solutions designer Aron has implemented within this space.

The client opted for an easy to clean glass splashback behind the hob area which is duplicated in the utility area. The splashback is one of many unique printed options that can be chosen from our local supplier, with this print matching some of the lime green accents in the kitchen and utility.

Project Highlight

The same monochrome theme is replicated across this utility space, with the addition of the clients own sink, laundry appliances and refrigerator.

This area is equipped with plenty of storage space in the form of base and wall units.

The End Result

Not all our projects involve removing walls and changing the shape of a property. This project is a great example of a simple modernisation with a refreshing look that the clients will not tire of seeing. Plus, the client has enhanced the functionality of their space with great inclusions like quartz work surfaces, several lighting options, and some new appliance choices.
