This bespoke, Rencraft design was commissioned for a busy young family seeking a contemporary feeling space with plenty of storage.
The layout embraces some of the principles of broken plan design, with an open doorway through to the larder, a central island and a peninsula which separates the kitchen from the living area.
The design also incorporates a number of differing heights and layers, each providing their own unique function. The island includes a raised breakfast bar, as well as a Lazy Susan for condiments and cooking oils. On the peninsula you’ll find a bespoke caddy area and a two-tier spice rack, plus a trough prep sink. These practical elements ensure the kitchen remains well-organised, while also keeping all those essential items within easy reach.
When it comes to materials, the space combines 30mm white quartz worktops, hand-painted cabinetry and areas of exposed oak. The oak is especially interesting as it has been used to create a striking oven housing with a panelled ‘ribbon’ which continues across the ceiling, incorporating an extractor, and then down the opposite wall to the fireplace. Further accents of oak have been introduced for the shelves, open pan stores and interiors.
Appliances include a Fisher & Paykel fridge freezer, a Siemens oven stack with two ovens, a microwave and a warming drawer and no less than 3 Siemens gas hobs – a 4 ring hob, a 2 ring hob and a wok burner. In addition, there is also a Quooker tap to provide instant boiling water.
