The client told us that they wanted to use European oak for this project, but did not want it to look too traditional.
This was a challenge we relished. As oak is a very traditional material, we decided to bring the centre panel closer to the front of the door to give it a more contemporary feel, and with the addition of the square chrome and leather handles this really set the tone for the kitchen.
We made the stiles on the doors wider than the rails, to continue the contemporary feel and added chrome butt hinges to finish it off.
With clean lines and a simple feel, the cornice was designed to fit in with the contemporary style.
The whole look was finished with colour glass splash backs and 19mm glass shelves, backed with L.E.D lighting, nestling between the two wall units.
Quality is never compromised; the end panels and plinth were made from 18mm solid European oak. The final icing on the cake was the addition of leather in the base of the cutlery drawer – everywhere you looked you could see and feel the quality.
