Painted and Walnut
The starting point for this kitchen was a large, light-filled extension on a beautiful listed property.
The rich, warm walnut of the island and bespoke dresser contrasts with the Glacier White Corian worktops and the hand-painted base and wall units. The central cabinets and worktops curve around, giving a softness to the large (6.5 metre diagonal) island which may otherwise have dominated the room.
The sheer size of the island has allowed for it to be split into three different levels. The main level around the Miele induction hob and small prep sink, a slightly raised walnut chopping board and a further raised breakfast bar.
Stainless steel plinths and mirrored splashback add to the sense of space. The sink run also has Corian worktops with moulded bowls, complementing the fluid feel of the rest of the design.
Our clients were keen to embrace the principles of open plan living and wanted a cooking area that flowed seamlessly with the rest of the room.
Handmade bespoke walnut island cabinets with curved edges and a walnut end grain chopping board. Hand-painted cupboards. Corian worktops. Stainless steel plinth, mirrored splashback and bespoke stainless steel handles.
The multi-functional three tiered design of the large island allows the incorporation of cooking, prepping and casual dining zones within the one space.
