Our brief for this kitchen was to create a modern scandi-style living area, to fit the new and unique space our clients were creating by extending their apartment home.
The new kitchen space was an interesting geometric shape with a few odd angles and corners. You can see from the images above, that with the wedge-shaped room, taking a standard off-the-shelf approach would not have worked here.
We designed a bespoke kitchen to fit the new space. The wooden worktops and reclaimed timber shelves were scribed to the unique angles. We mirrored the angles with the freestanding kitchen island and created a beautiful kitchen that felt right for our client.
The scandi look and feel of this kitchen is emphasised by the classic wood and white combination. The bespoke green splashback adds a pop of colour. Made from recycled glass bottle shards set in resin, the splashback is a sustainable option.
While the solid cherry worktops spread warmth and character throughout the space, the feature open shelving brings additional visual interest. We used a reclaimed iroko hardwood for the feature shelves, reclaimed from school lab benches. Sanding back the years of graffiti, we exposed the fabulous wood grain underneath. We accentuated the texture with a loving finish of hardwax oil.
The simple, white slab doors with cut out handles lend the kitchen a minimalist feel and adds to its airiness. Uncluttered and unfussy, the kitchen is highly functional
The finished kitchen is a lovely warm kitchen and dining space, and most definitely the heart of the home.
