“White” – the standard London apartment colour probably wasn’t going to happen if I had anything to do with it. There are many, many other options available and this client, an artist herself, was open to suggestion.
The wonderful thing about London properties is that they have rather high ceilings which compensate for their tiny size when it comes to storage. This particular refurbishment of a one bedroom property in Clapham was no exception.
Due to the small size, I wanted the wall units on the wall you see as you walk in, to be higher than the ones you don’t see. This gives a more open feeling. The last thing you want is to feel cramped in an already small space. Sufficient storage was provided in this manner.
The very faint grain in the lacquered finish doors added a degree of character and warmth to the kitchen. Minimal handles which attach to the top of the drawers are discreet and work better than using handleless in this instance (the channel in a handless kitchen can be quite bold and can be an unwanted focal point)
White Corian was used for the worktop and sink. White glass splashback reflects the space to give it a slightly more open feeling.
