Beautiful Retro Inspired Kitchen

We thought we'd share a beautiful retro inspired kitchen with you today. The brief was to create a simplistic but stylish space for the family to cook, entertain and relax in.
The kitchen is lay-on style with flat painted doors featuring push catch opening mechanisms to the wall units. The end panels, plinth and cornice are walnut which provides some contrast and warmth to the otherwise muted colour scheme of grey and white.
Not having handles on the wall units gives a clean and streamlined look to the cabinets.

The doors fold open towards the ceiling to reveal the cabinet interior, no banging your head on the wall cupboard doors in this kitchen!

The base units have beautifully simple stainless steel handles. The hob is flush fitted into the worktop with the extractor neatly housed in the wall unit above. A bank of tall ovens ensures ample cooking space, the stainless steel finish in keeping with the contemporary feel throughout.

The chunky Corian worktop is formed into a large breakfast bar area ideal for casual dining or food preparation.

The tall cabinets below provide plenty of storage..
but they also slide open to reveal something else..
a hidden desk area! With internal shelving and compartments for keeping paperwork.

The beautiful copper bowl light provides a stunning focal point over the bar area with the orange blinds complimenting the warm tones within the walnut.

The grey glass splashback is a great alternative to tiling and reflects the light beautifully.

So what are your thoughts on this kitchen? Do you like the handle-less look? Would you benefit from a desk area in your own kitchen? We'd love to know what you think.
