Bespoke red kitchen with oak wood finish
It’s time for one of Amberth’s projects again; this time it’s a bright red kitchen. We don’t often get to work with bold bright colour such as this, so this was a nice opportunity to experiment. We kept the cabinets reasonably light and traditional; so that the kitchen can easily be transformed in the future, by simply changing the cabinet doors, should our clients with to change the main colour theme. Wood veneer is much likely to stay I vogue for a while, making this design a rather versatile one.
Our clients wanted an easy maintenance kitchen with a lot of light, however, colour was also very important so we settled down on bright red in high gloss finish instead of traditional white. We mixed traditional elements with more contemporary finishes and appliances for a modern yet “easy” look.
We started of by knocking down a very dated kitchen with plastic oak finish cupboards.We gutted the entire space out, removed the floor and installed new ceiling lights. We incorporated a lot of storage into the final design, including a corner pullout cabinet that makes the best use of existing space, and some open pullout baskets that store fresh fruit and vegetables. There is also a cabinet to display our client’s lovely china. To make sure there is plenty of light, we installed lots of LED lights under wall cabinetry and extractor fan.
We decided to use Parapan doors with stainless steel handles for our design. The cabinets themselves were made out of real oak wood veneer to add a touch of warmth and reflect the character of the house. When choosing a worktop, we went for Wharf Simple ‘Patterned Stone’ – a very durable material with reflective qualities. We also used stainless steel Siemens appliances to created a clean look.
