Discreet kitchen design by Smith & Smith Kitchens
Universal Magazines

“Our client meticulously planned this discreet kitchen around their family needs and edgy aesthetic values. As the kitchen room was relatively small, a few things became very important.

First, the kitchen had to function beautifully and look great, whether for cooking or entertaining. The colour scheme had to be contemporary, clean and crisp, exuding a wow factor. The client’s brief for a discreet kitchen workbench when not in use was fulfilled by the massive pivot pocket sliding doors which hide the cooktop, rangehood and main sink. The island’s sink was moulded from the same white material as the bench and the tap is also white. Even the dishwasher is amalgamated by a Corian panel into the side waterfall of the island — a masterpiece of disguise! To achieve a consistent and minimalist look, finger-pull handles were used sparingly across the kitchen. The fridges are integrated into the cabinetry, the black heart veneer encompassing the back wall with warm natural shades and a large sweeping pattern. The two-pack satin cabinetry finish is extended by the Corian Glacier White benches and waterfall ends, allowing the striking back wall to wow. The layers of functionality and refined aesthetic interwoven into this kitchen are a perfect example of creative collaboration between the client and the design/manufacturing team, where the client is actively involved in the design process and the cabinet maker brings extensive experience into the mix for an outstanding result.”
