Brief: Our client was hoping to incorporate two seemingly opposing concepts into their kitchen. They wanted an extremely functional kitchen. But, the kitchen needed to have an understated character. Our challenge was to achieve the look and functionality and provide our customer with a high standard of living.
Design: We started with contemporary, handle-less doors from the Leicht Ceres-C range in Merino Matt. The Neutral colour keeps the kitchen from drawing the eye, while the handle-less fronts complement the living areas while maintaining the storage functionality of kitchen presses. The Breakfast bar from Leicht is Noyer, a variation of walnut, that adds warmth and a cosy feel. The raised breakfast bar creates a design feature, shielding the mechanics of the kitchen from view, from the dining/lounge areas. Appliance selections also had a profound effect on realising the look. Using a Bora induction hob with built-in, downdraft extraction eliminates the need for a bulky overhead fan unit and opens lines of sight to the other areas of the room.
Brief: Our client wanted to design a kitchen for a new build bungalow in Hockley, Essex. The initial concept for the property was based on the Huf House principles and although the building didn’t strictly adhere to these principles in the end, the finished results retain the design features associated with this type of build.
Design: In keeping with the contemporary style, the client approached us to design and supply a modern handless kitchen. We supplied a Leicht kitchen with door range Bondi-C in a Carbon Grey colour. The design includes a Bora hob and full Siemens pack. The worktops are marble effect quartz with the waterfall gable being a stand out feature. The kitchen finishes that were chosen are in keeping with the monotone colours of painted white walls and polished concrete floors.
Brief: Carol and Mike met Terry, Design Consultant at Kube, early in the planning stage of their project. They were renovating the entire rear section of their already beautiful home in Portmarnock and extending into their back garden. The project was complicated from the start with a structural steel column encroaching on the main kitchen area proving a challenge. It was important to overcome the design challenges without compromising the overall look and functionality of the kitchen.
Design: Terry in conjunction with Carol and Mike designed a dream high-gloss white handleless kitchen. With tones of grey in the Quartz and Basalt Oak trim, the kitchen is sleek and visually stunning. The use of bulkheads and columns to frame the units is an important characteristic of the design. Some structural re-engineering meant the design could incorporate a cook zone complemented with downdraft extraction on the Island. Adding island seating from Calligaris at Kube completes the look.
“We embarked upon a new house extension project and identified early that the kitchen would be an area that required exceptional attention to detail to achieve our overall objectives. For this we went with Kube Kitchens and we have been absolutely delighted with the outcome. Our kitchen design achieves ease of movement, stunning features and a superb finish. Thanks to all the team at Kube, we are delighted with the finished product.”
