Be brave and go bold with dark colours for a modern, vibrant kitchen.
Do you avoid darker colours because in the belief they will make a room feel smaller? This dramatic black gloss design with clever features encourages you to think again
This smaller kitchen posed a challenge for our team but we rose to the task with a magnificent design that makes great use of the space available.
Barrel shaped glass fronted doors reflect the light back from the doors opposite while the contrast of light kitchen surface adds brightness. Barbara chose to extend the worktops using practical upstands and a quirky round splashback. These clever features open up the room and create an illusion of space.
Open cabinets for wine racks and the display of favourite cookbooks make creative use of a small kitchen. Barbara chose a tap that provides instant boiling water; eliminating the need for a kettle taking up room on the worktop. A pull out towel rail and cutlery tray leaves even more space for Barbara to get busy in her new kitchen.
Right from first visiting the showroom to completion I had no complaints. I had very clear ideas of what I didn’t want but what I did want was more hazy, Neil helped me to firm up my ideas, so now I have the kitchen of my dreams, which even gets kept clean and tidy (totally out of character). After we agreed a start date and the work had begun, I even felt confident enough to leave the country for a week or so to let them get on with it in peace. I was really pleased that the quality of the workmanship matched the quality of the products and as a result I now have a stunning kitchen which stands out from the crowd. (Barbara Brew)
