Who would know more about how to design kitchen than a chef? Our latest kitchen design features the stylings of our Plain English Collection with some professional restaurant grade refinements.
The kitchen design was a collaboration between our client and our head designer, Ronan Carey as part of a new build.
Restaurant Kitchen Meets Home Kitchen Design
One of the more striking features borrowed from the professional kitchen is the polished concrete floor. These are becoming more popular in home kitchens as they offer a range of benefits including:
- Polished concrete floors are far more durable than timber and tiled floors.
- Cleaning is easy and hassle free.
- They are a natural repellent to home allergens such as dust mites.
- They perform well with underfloor heating.
- Another professional level feature are the open shelving units, each wrapped in brushed steel.
The client chose a Viking gas range as a high quality solution in terms of heat control and performance essential for demanding gourmets.
Walk In Pantry
Any gastronome’s dream is to have a selection of ingredients on hand to cook with. Being a new build our design included a walk in pantry. Having food storage separated from the main food preparation area gives the kitchen a more open and spacious feel as less cabinets are needed giving gourmets the space to concoct unforgettable meals.
Plain English Kitchen Design
A major challenge for our design brief was to meld the professional features of the kitchen into a kitchen that still had a homely feel. Our Plain English Collection has simplicity at it’s core and the plain fronted cabinetry tastefully framed with wooden tops and painted by hand off set the polished floor with aplomb.
We met the challenge of softening the sometimes “industrial” look of polished concrete by blending it with colour to give it a more stylish appearance.
The colour and the shape of this kitchen synergised with its professional features will give years of cooking and living enjoyment.
