Smoked & Mirrored
This stunning bespoke kitchen combines various different textures in one beautiful bespoke design.
The hand-painted cabinetry has a plain, narrow door frame giving the room a contemporary spin. Accents of exposed wood complement the shades of blue used, with Smoked Oak for the main run of tall units and also for the dovetail drawer fronts included within the wall unit creating a dramatic contrast.
This Smoked Oak is worthy of special mention, with a lovely textured finish that takes full advantage of the naturally occurring patterns within the grain of the wood.
Our focus on texture and materials continues elsewhere in the room, creating interest at every turn. Frosted glass windows have been used within the larder cabinets, Dekton has been used for the worktops, and a mirrored kick-back has been used behind the bar stools.
Storage is also key – with an appliance garage, a double door larder cupboard with marble cold shelf and bespoke walnut interiors, solid wood drawer boxes, a ‘Le Mans’ corner solution, a solid wood wine rack and drawers kitted out with handmade cutlery inserts.
Custom made knobs and bar handles complete the look, with appliances including integrated Miele ovens, coffee machine, dishwasher and fridge freezers, Hotpoint fridge drawers, Caple wine cooler, two Bora hobs with tepanyaki grill and extractors, an Evoline port and a Quooker.
The bespoke dining table was also made by Rencraft and the two shades of blue paint used were mixed to match our client’s requirements, giving a truly personal finish.
Our client wanted their kitchen to be a ‘contemporary classic’, it needed to have instant ‘wow factor’ while also being a practical space big enough for the whole family of five (plus one dog) to use.
We were delighted that our client allowed us to experiment with different textures and materials in order to achieve their desired result.
Their love of the coast and nature has also been reflected in the shades of blue used along with the accents of beautiful, naturally grained wood.
We love the way all of the different elements and textures combine in one unified space.
There is a real sense of calm in this kitchen, thanks to the relaxing coastal shades of blue that have been used, but there is also a sense of luxury as well thanks to the rich brown of the Smoked Oak and also the addition of the custom made handles too.
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.
