Tracy & Simon both keen cooks had inherited a kitchen which felt cramped and dark, lacking natural light and poorly designed. The desire to prepare food and cook together and the need for practical, efficient storage was an essential part of the brief.
Creating a u-shape kitchen with clearly defined work zones gives the couple space to cook together. Considered storage optimises without overcrowding.
The introduction of 'natural' LED lighting provides light without discolouring the painted silver grey units; a textured oak accent was added to the single row of wall units with marble effect worktops and splash backs. In addition a matt glass splash back colour matched to the walls was commissioned to protect the area behind the hob. A washed grey oak floor was laid on the diagonal.
