This minimalist charcoal galley kitchen has bags of character and complements the dramatic dining space alongside.
The warmth of wood
The solid iroko timber worktops add a lot of warmth and contrast beautifully with the charcoal-painted cabinet doors. In the dining room alongside, the original Victorian alcove cupboards were still in situe. To make these match the charcoal kitchen doors, we renovated them and painted them charcoal as well. Our clients have put down a temporary lino floor to protect the boards before they have a solid one put down. This flooring goes perfectly with the geometric tiled splashback.
Appliances in the galley kitchen
Alongside the metre-wide 6-burner Smeg double oven and extractor, the galley kitchen incorporates a range of kitchen essentials. There is an integrated fridge-freezer, an integrated dishwasher and two large bins in a pull-out drawer. The chunky open shelving adds visual interest and ensures the galley kitchen does not feel too enclosed.
The finished result is a great kitchen-dining space that runs seamlessly together, The design retains the drama of the high ceilings and original features. This means that the design of the charcoal galley kitchen works perfectly with the Victorian character of the house.
