The brief for this project was simple, create a large, contemporary open-plan living space making the kitchen the heart of the room.
The kitchen itself is from our Bergwald Touch Range, a popular choice for our customers thanks to the wide choice of colours and finishes. Slate Grey doors make up the bulk of the cabinetry, including the tall bank, the satin finish means no pesky finger marks which is perfect for a busy family kitchen like this one.
The island benefits from the same Satin Finish but in a lighter Stone Grey, it’s a wonderful contrast to the rest of the cabinetry, adding an interesting twist on the overall aesthetic of the kitchen. A 100mm raised breakfast bar has been incorporated into the island, it’s ideal for those informal mid-week meals or for allowing the family to gather round whilst the cook of the house makes dinner!
A Miele Combo Hob sits in the centre of the island, by combining the induction hob and extractor fan a lot of useful worktop space is freed up which is essential for any working kitchen. Miele appliances have also been chosen for the tall bank, including a larder fridge and freezer but most notably the full sized Oven and Microwave Combination Oven both from the MTouch handless range. Handless appliances are becoming more and more popular with modern kitchens as they compliment the sleek look of the handless cabinetry.
Within the sink run you’ll find a large stainless steel undermount Blanco Sink and a Quooker Pro Flex Tap. The Quooker Tap offers instant boiling hot water as well as the standard hot and cold water options, it’s the perfect kitchen accessory for avid tea drinkers! What really stands out in this area of the kitchen is the large mirrored splashback, the chosen colour Mercury really compliments the other shades of grey while the mirrored effect reflects light back into the room adding depth and texture to the space.
It’s the finishing touches that really pull the kitchen together, Maui White Quartz worktops offer a clean cut finish and makes the room feel bigger and brighter. LED lights have been installed into the handle channels on the island and the sink run making the work surfaces look like they are floating, while the stylish pendants that sit above the breakfast bar create subtle mood lighting for those social gatherings or special occasions.
Rigid German kitchens like that are built to last, benefiting from German engineering & build quality coupled with our expert design and installation team we can work with you to create your dream kitchen just like this one. We even produced a contemporary utility space with sleek handleless units housing the washing and drying appliances for this busy family home.
