Sleek concrete, warm natural oak and strong off black cabinets create the perfect recipe for this modern rustic family home.
The design of this contemporary space was very important to the owners of the converted stable. Creating a functional yet timeless design for family gatherings. Combining stainless steel modern appliances with an abundance of quartz work surfaces make this kitchen a space to enjoy both aesthetically and practically. The Bertazzoni range cooker offers flexibility and energy efficient cooking whilst the Liebherr fridge freezer offers plenty of storage for a family.
The large island offers a statement as well as social space to sit in front of the hidden drinks bar. The dark matt intelligent black paint creates an industrial feel combined against the concrete floor. Whilst also having the benefit of being self-repairing. The design of the island legs helps the piece of furniture feel more freestanding giving a total contrast against the natural fitted oak.
Our favourite highlight of this kitchen, apart from the palette of natural materials has to be ‘the bar’ a feature every home owner should have. An especially created alcove to house cabinets specifically designed to hide a drinks fridge, work surface and storage to create the all-important drinks. Finished in the soft paint hues to compliment the walls help emphasise the understated elegance.
The storage in this kitchen focuses on the contemporary style. The lack of wall cabinets is quite apparent and is becoming more common throughout our portfolio. The large deep storage drawers offer ideal storage for crockery, pots, pans and baking trays. The hidden internal drawers on clever magnetic catches hide away utensils and cutlery without compromising the design. This kitchen also features a hidden recycling system, Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawers, built in pantries with oak spice racks and complimentary tea towel holder matching the industrial clean lines of the Jolie brass handles.
