Sleek and Contemporary Family Kitchen

We have a beautiful contemporary kitchen for you today.

The owners had the existing kitchen area extended to create a large kitchen / entertaining area with sliding folding doors to the garden. The brief was to design a sleek and very modern space with plenty of storage to keep the kitchen area as uncluttered as possible. To achieve this look we used white high gloss Parapan doors with inset handles with dark grey Quartz worksurfaces and stainless steel appliances. 


The scheme is based around a multi level central island area which incorporates a supporting column which needed to be retained. The feature ceiling downstand mirrors the island shape below and houses lighting and services for this area.


An integrated wine fridge and Zip Tap sit at the end of the island which makes for easy access when entertaining.


The bank of Siemens appliances which sit in full height cabinets are a stunning backdrop to the kitchen and the high gloss Parapan doors reflect the light beautifully.


Below you can see the island in more detail with it's different levels of worksurface, having the cooking and preparation area on a lower level combined with the column keeps cooking clutter out of guests view. We also created a feature display area within the column which also allows for a better outlook whilst at the sink area. 


Keeping to the minimalistic theme, the sink is inset with an integral drainer and modern angular tap and the hob is flush fitted within the worktop.


A discreet flush fitted pop-up socket below is a must have for any island. 


As you can see below this one has 3 sockets and is ideal for powering kitchen appliances or laptops.


The Zip Tap below is another feature in the island and provides boiling and chilled filtered water.


As the client requested plenty of storage, many of the cabinets house internal drawers which offer numerous storage combinations.


The sleek stainless steel Elica extractor is recessed into the ceiling downstand and fits with the contemporary design of this kitchen beautifully.


We hope you enjoyed looking around this contemporary kitchen with us. We'd love to know what you think?
