Room of the week – glamorous kitchen diner

October 19, 2011

This weeks Room of the Week is a glamorous kitchen diner.  From the House to Home gallery the room combines a practical kitchen with a high-end chandelier to add a touch of glamour.

In a large open plan space it is essential that you create definition between each area otherwise you can end up with an enormous room that serves no purpose and feels like a barn!  Adding a large island unit to the kitchen defines the food preparation area in the kitchen above.  The room remains a very sociable space and would be a perfect place to entertain friends.

If you need to add an extractor but don’t want to make it a feature a unit housed in the ceiling might work best for you. Elica make the ceiling mounted version shown below which provides good extraction in a very discreet manner. Alternatively it could be encased in housing as shown in the Room of the week to create a stunning feature to your room.

A large open plan area needs a large table to provide space for entertaining. The new range by Conran at Marks and Spencer includes the Pugin table shown below. Crafted in oak with subtle blue details in the drawers it would add a simple element to a dining room that can easily be dressed up when needed.

If you want to add some colour in your chandelier Johnny Egg has designed a fantastic flocked chandelier for Heals.  With the feel of velvet it adds both colour and texture to a room.  Available in a choice of six colours it would definitely be a talking point for any room.

As shown here a kitchen doesn’t have to be purely functional.  Adding a few simple design elements can easily transform it into a room to be enjoyed and to entertain in.
