What was once an 1970s kitchen has been renovated into a spacious and sleek space
“A nod to Scandinavian simplicity, this sleek space is a low-maintenance masterpiece — the set-up might appear minimal and fuss-free, but the inner workings are anything but. Behind the glossy exterior and clean lines of the cabinetry is a multitude of storage, with bifold doors allowing for easy and speedy access.
This reconfigured look champions trouble-free usage while maximising the room’s space, a dramatically different experience to the 1970s original. The uncomplicated layout encourages movement, providing the user with plenty of freedom when it comes to cooking and entertaining. The spacious island not only delivers hidden storage options but a practical prep area also, with the Caesarstone and polished concrete combination easy to clean and hardwearing.
The mostly white colour scheme contributes to the sense of airiness, with the mirrored splashback cleverly dispersing natural light throughout the kitchen. Shades of soothing grey save this design from being too clinical, with the subtle hardwood floor adding a distinctly European feel. Despite this, there’s an element of drama courtesy of the matt black tap and glossy bronze splashback, a unique and potentially risky idea that’s certainly paid off.”
