A new sleek, energy efficient kitchen was wanted for a passionate foodie. This new kitchen maximises natural light to create a bright and spacious environment to indulge the client’s love of all things culinary. A dynamic range of high-tech appliances coupled with sleek design, creates a seamless flow between different elements of the kitchen, lending a unique atmosphere to indulge the senses.
Working with the client, we created a design that contrasts the Mackintosh Gladstone Oak woodgrain-effect range with the Metrica Gloss in cashmere/white, featuring handle-less stainless steel trim. We completed the look with Wharf Composite worktops in “Storm” colour, including slab ends for the breakfast bar. This creates an elegant space with an atmospheric flare. The flush-fit spotlights below the back units provide extra lighting for the worktops and produce a diffuse light for a more relaxing atmosphere when needed.
With its range of high tech appliances and dynamic use of workspace, the client’s passion for food is evident throughout the kitchen. They made a special request for Siemens ovens – including a steam oven, compact microwave, full steam oven, and warming draws – which you can see nestled in the bank of Mackintosh woodgrain-effect cupboards.
In front of the breakfast bar, the kitchen island offers a range of cooking solutions. Next, to the Miele panoramic induction hob, you can see the Neff Wok burner; both benefit from the state-of-the-art Falmec downdraft extractor, which emerges from the Island at the touch of a button and keeps smoke and steam contained and away from the rest of the kitchen. The Kohler ice trough completes the luxury character of the kitchen island.
The stainless steel 1810 Axix sink is the main feature of the backmost worktop and creates a flawless seam between different elements of design. The Quooker Flex tap in brushed steel is both elegant and practical, providing boiling water on demand. To the right of the sink, and by special request, are the Fisher and Paykel dish drawers. This space-efficient dishwasher has two independent drawers for added convenience. Rated A++, this appliance – as well as the Quooker – helps keep energy consumption to a minimum in this energy-efficient kitchen.
