Industrial chic: kitchen design


Designed for a client who’s a passionate chef, this warehouse-style kitchen champions practicality

“Floor-to-ceiling cabinetry allows for maximum storage, with practical semi-gloss panels in natural white hiding everything from steak lockers to imported defrosting appliances. Originally a confined and restricted space, we combined three rooms to give the owner the space he desired, enhancing the airy feeling with some cleverly placed lighting and reflective surfaces. The abundance of stainless steel creates a sleek and utilitarian feel, while being hardwearing and easy to clean. This combined with the simple cabinetry highlights the warmth of the timber flooring, an essential feature that prevents the space from becoming too clinical and unwelcoming. The suspended Miele rangehood ups the drama, as do the pendant lights, but the star of the show is the island. A solid block of stainless steel, the island was designed as the eye-catching centrepiece and, while beautifully industrial, heavy-duty kitchenware adds some serious grunt.”
