Smart Walnut & Gloss Kitchen

We've got a smart and functional kitchen to show you today. A new extension created a long kitchen space directly off the existing dining room. The client wanted a modern feel but at the same time didn't want it to look stark.

We suggested high gloss Parapan doors mixed with walnut accents to add warmth. We designed the open bookshelves in walnut too, which you can see below, the one to the right is curved and finishes off the tall furniture to that wall perfectly rather than looking at a blank end panel.

We designed in a small breakfast bar to break up the long space and as an area to perch for a coffee or glass of wine.

We were also able to house the microwave underneath too, making it practical to use but also hidden from view when initially entering the kitchen. You can see the beautiful staved walnut finish to the breakfast bar below.

The client wanted as much storage as possible so we designed the walnut dresser shown below. We added gloss doors in an aubergine colour which works well with the richness of the wood and included a stainless steel tambour door unit in the middle. Tambour units are very flexible as when open the worktop can be used for a mixer or coffee machine for example which can then just be shut away after neatly.

The modern streamline hob sits perfectly in the Caesarstone work surface and is complimented by the matching glossy black extractor above.

What do you think of this Kitchen? Do you like the modern materials used?
