Dark & Dramatic Design

Sevenoaks, Kent


10 year old new build.

In a Nutshell

Dark handpainted cabinetry in a light, open plan kitchen complete with SubZeroWolf appliances for some extra flair.

The Brief

To create an eye-catching kitchen with ample seating for a family who enjoy entertaining and cooking for friends.

Inspired by the trend for darker kitchen designs, our clients decided to add a touch of sophistication to their kitchen space with hand-painted cabinets and veined granite worktops.

Darker, single shade cabinetry is a growing trend in kitchen design and this room is a great example as all the cabinets have been hand-painted in the same charcoal shade.

Solid oak interiors add a touch of warmth, ensuring that this striking kitchen design is every bit as stunning on the inside as it is on the out.

Veined black granite has been chosen for the worktops, with the dramatic colour scheme even extending as far as the black sink by Kohler.

The sink isn’t the only note-worthy feature. The main run of cabinetry is home to statement appliances including a Wolf range cooker and a Sub Zero fridge freezer.

Hand-painted cabinetry has been teamed with mirrored plinths, a mirrored splashback and brushed chrome handles.

I loved the challenge of working with this colour palette! Contemporary, dark and dramatic the end result is a very ‘grown-up’ feeling space where you could be equally at home  preparing dinner or serving cocktails.
