This kitchen project adds a touch of the traditional to an otherwise modern design, opening up a small space and maximising function
The previous kitchen was a dark poly kitchen occupying an L-shaped space with limited storage and a very small stainless steel island. The homeowner wanted to maximize storage and create an open-plan space where the family can interact while cooking or relaxing on the couch. One of the challenges of designing this kitchen was the limited number of spare floor tiles, something that was overcome by covering the floor and by opening up the space. The large island is extremely practical as a working bench and to offer an abundance of storage for the homeowners.
The continued use of Calacutta Blanco smart stone around the kitchen unites the space and provides a sense of elegance to the room. The steel tap offers a touch of the traditional, the lovely curved shape complementing the matt black mixer beside it. Mixing modernity into the area, the ILVE oven, cooktop and rangehood are perfect for heavy use of the space. The design is stunning, from the matching white handles to the clever design of the microwave shelf incorporated into the island.
