This Brighton based client sought an ultramodern improvement on a previous kitchen, to properly suit their open plan kitchen and living area. The design had to make the most of the area available, and yet have an uncluttered feel at the same time.
High-tech appliance choices were favoured from early project conversations, and as part of the project lighting enhancements and new flooring were also required. Storage for this client’s film and vinyl collection also had to be incorporated into the design.
To achieve the ultramodern appearance required, designer Alistair has utilised two gloss finishes from German supplier Nobilia. Slate Grey furniture is used along the main run of units and tall units, while a sizeable island space utilises a bright Alpine White finish. To further achieve the modern aspect of the brief, all the furniture is handless and makes use of stainless-steel handrails for access.
The layout is clever and makes a minimal impression on the room, whilst encompassing all required elements. A lengthy island space incorporates seating and the important storage space for this client’s film and vinyl.
The main run of units is illuminated by feature shelving, which adds an ambient element to the design and an impressive lighting option for evenings. This area is equipped with plenty of pan and drawer storage, and within full-height units appliances have been installed as well as a pull-out pantry storage.
Corian work surfaces contribute futher to the modern design, and this Grey Onyx finish teams perfectly with the chosen furniture and décor of the room.
High-tech appliance choices add useful functionality to this space. A BORA Pure venting hob has been installed on the island, which utilises a built-in extraction and recirculating system to remove cooking odours and scents.
Also placed upon the island is a Quooker boiling water tap, which is equipped to provide cold, hot, boiling, sparkling and filtered chilled water, all from a single faucet.
Elsewhere an array of Neff appliance have been specified. A Slide & Hide single oven, combination microwave, refrigerator and freezer have all been installed as part of the project, as well as a 30cm wine cabinet.
Lighting was a key consideration of this project and multiple choices help to brighten and illuminate this modern space. Pendant lighting has been installed above the island and downlights have been installed in the ceiling, in addition to handrail strip lighting and the aforementioned feature shelving.
A herringbone flooring option from Karndean has been installed throughout the kitchen and living area and well into the hallway of this property. The chosen finish is named Ignea and combines well with the overall theme.
The Corian work surface and sink area are the undoubtable highlight of this project.
A 1.5 bowl Corian basin has been installed for continuity, which is also fitted with drainer grooves and a removable chopping board come sink cover. A Quooker tap with boiling, sparkling and filtered chilled function, is also installed above this area.
An inventive design ticks all the boxes of this initial client brief, firstly with an inventive layout and theme, and then by incorporating all the favoured storage, appliance, lighting and flooring elements.
