Hardworking compact kitchen with all the mod cons
This was a temporary home for the clients who planned to rent in the long run, so it needed to function both for them now, and for future tenants. The dark compact kitchen needed to work extra hard to be a calm space without clutter and incorporate all the larger household appliances.
With the cross beams raised to give the kitchen extra height, the new cabinetry was laid out in a u-shaped peninsula for extra counter space, with integrated white goods and open shelving so that the room could flow smoothly. A soft green was chosen for the colour palette with white quartz surfaces to reflect the light from the conservatory, for a natural and airy finish.
Behind the door into the kitchen was a small seating area, so we built a bespoke TV cabinet to make use of the otherwise redundant space. And, with the entry to the kitchen being so close to cabinetry either side, we installed a pocket sliding door with push catch and shaker style handles.
