Warm and welcoming kitchen design

This warm and welcoming kitchen uses contemporary design elements to create clean lines and a minimalist finish.

“The owners of this new house didn’t want a super-modern look; they desired a kitchen with clean lines that still felt warm and welcoming. They wanted to make a feature of the island and didn’t want any handles anywhere to interrupt the flow. We went for a shark-nose finish all the way around, which isn’t interrupted by any end panels either. Lighting on the kickboards completes this standout feature. This minimal finish on the outside is also reflected inside the drawers and cupboards with quality internal hardware. This kitchen has a hidden party, entered via a door on the left, and the fridge is set away from the main kitchen area so it’s not immediately obvious. The glass splashback, in jet black, adds a reflective finish, and the large-format tiles complete this clean and modern but not overly contemporary room.”
