This kitchen had not been updated since the 1990’s and needed a total re-vamp to bring it up to date with today’s modern styles. The room was clad in dark wood with one ceiling light, making it a dark area to work in. Even with the double French doors this room remained dark and uninviting.
My client contacted me for advice on ideas and styles on how to create a light modern kitchen without changing the existing layout.
My client wanted the kitchen to be light, modern & minimalistic but did not have the vision or time. The design I created to achieve the modern clean look my client wanted, included installing spotlights, handle less gloss cream units with large neutral textured tiles and neutral coloured painted walls. To compliment the light colour scheme, dark worktops and upstands were added enhancing the light further. Adding voile curtains to the French doors meant that light could still filter through, whilst keeping the kitchen private. The kitchen layout was kept the same as the existing, the only change made was the washing machine and dishwasher positions, which were swapped around, as this was more practicable than the existing layout.
After finalising the kitchen design, my client employed me to Source all the materials and Project Manage the whole job. I employed my own specialist Kitchen Fitter and the Kitchen was sourced from Magnet Kitchens; floor tiles were from Topps Tiles.
