Making the most of compact spaces
Intelligent kitchen design must consider several aspects. Storage, seating, appliance choice and location, workflow (for meal prep and clean-up) and of course, looks that fit with the architecture, location, and personal taste. When we consider these facets and account for a customers household composition and lifestyle, we can develop a kitchen design that will delight them for a lifetime. The challenge comes when fitting all of these elements into a pre-existing space, especially if it is a compact. Here we look at a kitchen that employes clever design techniques meet a customer brief.
A challenge that we see frequently is to put spectacular kitchens into smaller rooms. This client wanted to include an island with seating for three in their kitchen. They had a unique open space with a full-height feature window that follows the pitch of the roof. The window sits on top of bi-folding doors that, when open, incorporates the kitchen into the spacious outdoor area. The mandate then became to create a kitchen that would function well when the doors were opened or closed. By maintaining the correct working distances with the surrounding units, we were able to design an island that included an induction cooktop and a breakfast bar with seating for three.
The kitchen is from the Leicht Sirius-C range in Arctic White Gloss. The finish choice makes for a clean, sleek kitchen that looks uncluttered and keeps the kitchen bright. To add warmth, the breakfast bar is finished in Limes Oak with matching wall panels, giving the kitchen a homely quality. The Dekton Aura Ceramic Worktops complete the look of the kitchen. The work surfaces are incredibly durable and easy to maintain, in addition to being stunning.
