Introducing our KITCHEN OF THE MONTH! This bespoke Rencraft kitchen design offers a contemporary take on coastal style.

Coastal styling is usually defined by the use of natural textures such as driftwood combined with coastal colour schemes that typically feature sea greens, sky blues and plenty of sun-bleached whites.

This recent Rencraft install offers a contemporary spin on the seaside inspired trend.

Starting with the colour scheme, the room brings together two different shades of blue. The delicate sky blue hue used on the hand-painted cabinets around the edge of the room is evocative of clear blue skies and bright summer days, while the darker green blue shade used on the island gives a hint of the ocean.

There is a nod to nature with the inclusion of the textured Smoked Oak door panels which surround the Miele oven stack, and these are complemented with the custom made ‘ripple textured’ hammered bar handles which also add a ‘watery’ feel. The bright white Dekton worktop with waterfall edge further continues this theme.

Rencraft’s Managing Director and Lead Designer on this project, John Stephens, tells us more…
“I grew up near the coast and love nothing more than a good, brisk walk along the beach. This kitchen is a reflection of that. I love the different use of textures and colours, from the cool calming blue of the hand-painted cabinets to the warm, rich brown of the Smoked Oak which has been cross cut to make a feature of the naturally occurring grained pattern within the wood. Attention to detail is evident throughout every aspect of this design, with beautiful exteriors complemented by practical interiors that have been designed to stand the test of time.”
