Inspired by minimalist design elements and a need for both compact storage and convenience, this kitchen by Designer Kitchens is the epitome of practical and functional.
“Taking inspiration from the latest international design fairs, this kitchen trends towards a minimalist look where the kitchen invisibly blends into the background. It’s a design that’s particularly relevant to inner-city apartments, where there isn’t a dedicated space for a kitchen and it needs to work in with the living area without taking over. Loads of compact storage is concealed behind floor-to-ceiling wall panels, which open automatically with a light touch on the handle-less front and which are powered by the Servo-Drive electrical drive system. Either side of the oven, bi-fold doors lift up, as opposed to traditional left- or right-opening cupboards, providing easy access to day-to-day essentials like the microwave and kettle. The pantry is housed in full-height pull-out cabinets, leaving the island bench as the statement piece in the room and the dedicated cooking, preparation, dishwashing and bin area. What the owners love most is that it’s such a practical space when in use and so easily packed up when the cooking is done.”
