Good Sized Kitchen, Dated Units
This kitchen was generously sized, with dual aspect windows. It was also south facing with phenomenal sea views. So what wasn’t there to like? Well let’s start with the dark dated units, insipid worktop and worn vinyl on the floor. All of this gave the kitchen a tired, worn out look and feel.
I decided to retain most of the existing layout though as it worked well and with just a few tweaks, we were there planning wise.
The Contemporary Edit
We replaced the old units with sleek contemporary, light oak ones from Crown Imperial. As the front of the new units were flat, we fitted long stainless steel brushed handles to add a bit of depth.
Moving the Oven
The original oven had been jammed into the corner next to the door which was really impractical and dangerous. We repositioned the oven, hob and extractor to the centre of the run of units opposite the window which was much more practical and gave a more balanced look.
To a More Practical Kitchen Layout
The white satin finish tiles were an inexpensive, practical choice and looked stylish too. Staying with a light, efficient vibe, we fitted light oak wood effect flooring. The completed kitchen was so much brighter, fresher looking and great to work in.
