A modern kitchen from Metris in high gloss Sand and Linear Oak
Our clients wanted a kitchen for the whole family to enjoy, plenty of storage space and a seating area. With a rather difficult space to fit the kitchen into, a clever design was needed to fit the space. This has been achieved really well, with a small seating area between the kitchen and dining space.
The doors are a high gloss Avant door from Metris in Sand
This has been combined with a light Linear Oak trim and panels to frame the cabinets. A sweeping curve around the edge of the kitchen allows for the flow of this unusually shaped kitchen. Appliances are integrated into tall larder units, and the large fridge freezer has been framed by the oak panels and the addition of some small cabinets above gives useful extra storage space.
Our clients chose a beautiful polished Blue Pearl Granite for their worktop which complements the style of the room as well as the wall clients our clients went with. This granite has been extended to a tall and wide splashback behind the hob in order to protect the walls behind from any splashes during cooking.
The appliances chosen by our clients consisted of a mix of Die Dietrich and Caple; the two single ovens are both Dietrich. These are integrated into the tall larder units opposite the cooking area – both at eye level for ease of use. The hob is a Caple induction hob positioned in the corner of the room, above is an extractor hood (also from Caple) which has a stainless steel chimney with a glass bottom. This makes the extractor unobtrusive and fits into the room perfectly.
The sink is a stainless steel undermount sink from Caple, combined with an elegantly curved Caple tap in chrome. Next to the sink and tap is an Insinkerator instant boiling water tap – this eliminates the need for a kettle. The sink is positioned directly in front of the large window of the kitchen, meaning our clients can enjoy the lovely view whilst washing up.
Our clients also chose to have some in-cabinet clever storage systems. These were four tandem larders, meaning their cabinets are very easy to organise. Our clients also chose to have a LeMans corner pull-out, making awkward to reach corner cupboards much easier to get to, and with each tray being able to hold 25kg, much more can be stored in these cupboards.
