In a small space it is essential to maximise the area available in order to optimise the functionality of a kitchen. In this particular example, there were numerous features of the kitchen that were awkwardly placed, leaving the room feeling cramped and difficult to navigate.
One of the key faults of the original design was a lack of workspace for preparing and serving. By including an accommodating mica slate laminate worktop, an elegant and practical solution was found for this issue.
The oven and fridge were placed awkwardly behind the door of this kitchen, which when opened vastly reduced their accessibility. By placing a Bosch fridge freezer and Neff appliances on the opposite side of the room, an attractive yet practical solution was achieved. The space the original units occupied was not however wasted; draws containing less-used items were placed here to minimise long periods of reduced access.
Two carousels were added to the corner units of the kitchen to thoroughly manipulate the space available, alongside large draws that increase comfort and ease of use. Finally, this kitchen was finished with a semi-traditional design featuring classy brushed steel handles. However, this kitchen also holds a contemporary twist, incorporating features such as a bold Blanco composite sink in anthracite. A blue glass splashboard completes the space, offering a clean tone that contrasts yet blends with the rest of the design.
