Certain designs are challenging. I often find the simpler the design looks, often the more complicated it is.
Not in this instance.
In this instance, the client was complicated. Very. (Also hope she’s not reading this…)
The kitchen itself was quite straightforward. Concrete finish, modern, minimal design. Certain design features were included; A herb garden inset behind the sink. A door on the outside of the island in the same finish as the floor. This freed up the internal corner and provided additional storage. It shouldn’t have taken 364 emails to accomplish this but somehow did, I counted.
Sadly the built-in herb garden wasn’t implemented. Which is a bit frustrating as I was personally looking forward to seeing it! (It’s not all about me….apparently)
Neolith Estatuario was used for the worktops and also as a splashback. We dropped it to the floor at the end of the island in order to give the kitchen a nice finished look.
Extending the worktop behind the sink enabled the kids to sit and do their homework there. The height of the step made it possible for standard dining chairs to be used rather than bar stools.
I’ll often suggest appliances to my clients but depending on the brand they’re looking for, sometimes electrical goods are cheaper online. It’s just how it is. In this instance, the client chose all their own appliances, which included an integrated dishwasher, oven, induction hob, integrated hood and built-in coffee machine.
Coffee machines are seldom called for these days as they are very expensive and people often opt for a built-in microwave or steamer instead as Nespresso machines are the norm in many households.
I’m really happy with the result and more importantly, the client and her family are too.
