This kitchen really is one of a kind.
The timber is called Rippled Anigre and is a very very rare exotic hardwood that has the most wonderful Medullary rays to the grain which changes throughout the day as the light moves and changes.
The high amount of detail in this timber is offset by utilising soft cream painted cabinetry above and below on the plinths. This helps to frame the Anigre and draw your eye in whilst keeping the kitchen looking very light.
The entire kitchen is handleless, instead using what we call a knife edge opening system where either the top or bottom of the drawer/door is chamfered at a 40 degree angle. We then back filled these finger access points with solid Walnut which not only gives a great visual shadow line along the whole kitchen but also adds another layer of detail.
The quartz worktops were kept as thin as possible, square edged and flush with the front and sides of the carcassing. This is a very modern look and fits perfectly with the style of this kitchen.
The final detail in this kitchen is the copper, polished in the undercounted sink and with a green Patina on the splash backs. Whilst this look may not be for everyone, it does create a bold look to the whole room. But for the more traditional amongst you, this kitchen could work just as well with a more subtle tiled or glass finish.
Additionally on this job, we fitted a new ceiling, re plastered all of the walls, re routed the mains water and fitted all new plumbing, applied a self levelling compound to the floor and fitted the new laminate tiles. New hardwood door linings, new architraves and skirting boards and re hung the door on new hinges and new door furniture.
