A mix of solid maple and hand-painted cabinetry, finished with steel bar handles, has created a smart yet classic feel in this kitchen by Cloisters Design. For a similar cabinetry shade, try Dulux‘s Blue Chalk.
To complement the cabinetry, the homeowners bought a wooden table and chairs. The couple realised that the travertine flooring they wanted would not be hardwearing enough, so they chose Tuscany Gold ceramic tiles.
The internal sliding drawers in the peninsula are hidden behind a door and offer handy storage for everyday kitchen items such as plates and cereal bowls.
Rather than making a feature of an open wine rack, the homeowners opted for a sleeker look and fitted purpose-built shelves inside the peninsula behind a cupboard door. This also has the advantage of keeping the bottles out of the daylight to preserve the wine’s bouquet.
