Room of the Week
Today I am working with a photographer to shoot one of the latest kitchens we have finished so it seems appropriate to focus on the kitchen for our Room of the Week. The kitchen featured has a simple white and grey theme and delivers a gorgeous contemporary space that extends into the open plan dining area.
If your kitchen is open plan to the rest of the living area you need to ensure that all the areas of the enlarged room work together. A handleless kitchen is a great choice for this style of living as it integrates very well into the larger space without looking too much like the ‘kitchen’. This room has managed to incorporate the look further by using a similar table and worktop. The continued use of white also ties together all aspects of the room.
If you do want to add a splash of colour to your kitchen the splashback is often a good way to do this. Deco Glaze specialise in fitting glass splashbacks to kitchens, and also bathroom – they will also fit glass worktops. Normal glass cannot be used for this purpose, you need to ensure it is toughened and heat resistant if it is to be used behind a hob. Many other glaziers will be able to supply and install glass splashbacks, just always make sure it is safe and doesn’t just look pretty.
This kitchen is using an extractor integrated into the ceiling in a housing that mirrors the shape of the island. We recently used a similar extractor from Westin for a project with an island where we didn’t want the exterior to hang into the open space. This powerful extractor is remote controlled and vented away from the kitchen. If you do not want to make a feature of your extractor it is a perfect solution.
This room was originally featured in the extensive galleries of House to Home. Take a look over at their website for room inspiration, and be sure to check back here every week to find which one of the rooms has been showcased.
