Kitchen makeover: Small white kitchen
Today we are having a look at one of Amberth’s smallest projects so far. Our client approached us with a desire to update a functional, yet dated kitchen. They wanted a “good looking” kitchen, which would be functional but not filled to the brim with cupboards. Instead, we mainly used drawers and pullout cabinets to make the best use of the storage space. As a result, we came up with a light and airy kitchen, where everything has it’s own place and that is a pleasure to use.
One of the main issues in the space was an existing stud wall, which was closing off the kitchen from the rest of the space. We knocked it down in order to have more freedom and space to experiment with. We also reduced the umber of wall cabinets to make the kitchen feel lighter and more spacious. Our clients felt that they did not require large amount of storage space, but rather just a few cabinets to store the essentials, so this was reflected in final design proposal.
From the start there were a few considerations to take into account. The kitchen was located in the middle of the apartment and had no natural light all together. To fix this, our clients knocked through a small widow into the living room just to let enough light through, ad this had to be taken into consideration when designing the cabinets.
Design and Materials:
The client opted for a lovely wood like Hacienda melamine cupboards in soft, light finish with elongated brushed steel handles for a modern look. We chose most appliances from Bosch and installed a washing basin by Blanco. We also chose a 40mm think composite stone Silestone Blanco Maple worktop and a make to measure glass splashback to pull the final look together.
The final result – a playful and modern kitchen with a dash of personality.
